We do things a little differently from other estate planning attorneys at The Law Office of Nicole Israel. Traditionally, estate planning has been thought of as something intimidating and only for the wealthy. The truth is, estate planning is not about how much money you have. It’s about making things as easy and inexpensive on your loved ones when you are gone. That’s it! And you care about that whether you are leaving $10 behind, or $10 million.
If you want to ensure your loved ones don’t have to deal with an emotionally draining, expensive mess when you are gone, estate planning is for you. Our non-intimidating, cost-effective process helps you get important legal documents in place that will make sure your family and assets are protected no matter what.
We offer flat fees, we educate, we keep in touch, we listen and we have an easy three meeting process. We aim to empower you to create the life and legacy you deserve!
