    Estate planning is not a transaction, it is a process.  When you enroll in PathPlan© you engage us to continue as your personal attorney, your file will be maintained and updated, and you will receive important information during the year regarding changes in the law that may be important to you and your family.

  4. Trust Administration Services To Guide Your Successor Trustee.

    Our commitment to you includes a no fee Trust Administration meeting with your successor trustee(s) when the time arises; to provide information to assist in carrying out your wishes.  This informational meeting is offered at no cost to all participants who maintain a current PathPlan© membership.  In addition, if Trust Administration representation is needed, this is provided at a reduced membership rate.

    PathPlan© membership is renewable on a yearly basis.  Your rate is guaranteed not to increase for three years.  If membership lapses new rates will apply.  You can protect your rate by timely renewing each year or paying a lump sum three-year advancement at a discount of $1,282.50.
