Estate Planning

We provide peace of mind through comprehensive life insurance solutions for estate planning. We do this by embracing a client-centric approach that prioritizes trust, transparency, and empathy. Every need is different, which is why we remain independent and represent the most reputable insurance companies. This gives us the flexibility and freedom to find the right solutions for each of our clients.

Our Process


During the discovery phase, we take a deep dive into your unique situation and objectives. We review existing plans and documents, communicate with other members of your team (e.g., business/estate planning attorneys, CPAs, FAs, and bankers), and establish an initial outline of your life insurance needs.


After gathering foundational information, we provide you with an analysis and projection of your business and personal financial situation. The proposal phase is a comprehensive and personalized journey, meticulously tailored to address each client’s objectives.


As a dedicated independent life insurance firm with in-depth knowledge and experience in complex business and estate planning, our rigorous commitment to securing the right coverage with optimal underwriting outcomes is unwavering.

Ongoing Service

Our dedication to excellence extends to the very last phase. Once your personalized plan and life insurance policies are implemented, we review a minimum of once per year or on an as needed basis to ensure that your planning goals and objectives remain aligned with your evolving business and personal needs.
