While nobody wants to think about death or disability, establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. Proper estate planning not only puts you in charge of your finances, it can also spare your loved ones of the expense, delay and frustration associated with managing your affairs when you pass away or become disabled.More About Estate Planning

Choosing an estate planning lawyer is tricky if you plan to live a long time! After two other lawyers retired, we decided to use one that was younger, and have been very pleased with Scott Hartley in every way. He listens carefully to us and advises us to take the right actions to meet our goals. He is thorough and meticulous, while also taking the time to understand us as people. It has been a pleasure (and a relief) to work with him in making plans for our future and for our children and grandchildren.
Scott, helped me with the incorporation of my small business and then has continued to help me with contracts and legal advice over the past five years. This was my first sole proprietor business so Scott's experience gave me confidence. His quick turn-around and quick sense of humor make him a pleasure to work with.
