Trusts and Estate Planning

At Matt Devitt Law, we understand the importance of planning for the future. Matt realizes that you have worked hard throughout your lifetime and that you deserve to enjoy the fruits of your labor and to have your wishes for your estate honored.

Mr. Devitt will work closely with you to develop a well-crafted estate plan that provides for your loved ones in an effective and efficient manner by avoiding guardianship during your lifetime, reducing probate procedures and oversight at death, lessening or reducing estate taxes and limiting unnecessary delays. 

Matt believes that the peace of mind of knowing that your loved ones are taken care with an estate plan should be felt by everyone including middle income families, high net worth individuals, as well as, those with modest estates. 

There is no “one size fits all” plan and by understanding your individual circumstances and family dynamics Matt looks forward to working together to tailor an estate plan that best suits your individualized needs.

What you can expect when working with Matt Devitt Law, PLC:

We realize that Estate Planning is a complex process. Further, we understand that you have worked hard throughout your lifetime to provide for your loved ones and it is a big responsibility to be a part of making sure that your wishes for your estate are honored. For these reasons, Mr. Devitt makes keeping the client informed and a part of the process throughout, as well as, simplifying the agenda a top priority during the entire planning process.

 

When building your estate plan with Matt Devitt Law, PLC you can expect an orderly process with continuous feedback and preparation.

Utilizing an accommodating scheduling approach and never making you feel rushed:

At Matt Devitt Law, PLC we pride ourselves on never forgetting who we work for; you the client. We take a unique approach to our estate planning by scheduling up to three in person meetings depending on the desire of our clients. Given the importance and complexity of a
well drafted estate plan, we do not believe that our clients should be rushed through the process and have found that the more time we spend together planning, equates to a more comprehensive estate plan that best meets the wishes of our clients.


In addition, Matt is proud to offer clients a value based pricing plan instead of the traditional hourly billing model. This means that Matt is available for unlimited calls and emails throughout the planning process and we will never charge you; we want you to contact us and
talk about any issues, questions, and goals that you have throughout the entire process.

 

Finally, Matt understands that everyone is busy with work, family, and other commitments and it is not easy to schedule time during normal business hours to meet in office. Matt is pleased to offer clients flexible scheduling, meaning that Matt is available on evenings and weekends, as well as, available to meet with clients at their home or business upon request.
