Uniquely You does not charge for the initial consultation. Instead, we use this time to get to know you, your unique family and needs, and then we can both determine if we are a good fit to work together. This is important because our relationship will be a lifelong relationship.

Estate Planning costs vary based on each individual or family’s unique finances, dynamics, and assets. Uniquely You charges a flat fee agreed to with you based on your goals and objectives. Everything is communicated up front and you will never be surprised by a legal charge. The average plan costs between $3,500-$5,500.
Uniquely You has a four-meeting process to ensure you plan works for you and your family and meets your goals. The average time from initial meeting to delivery of signed documents is five weeks.
Estate planning means much more than preparing a Last Will and Testament or tax planning for the disposition of your assets upon your death. It is the process of accumulating and disposing of an estate to maximize your goals. Your goals typically include making sure the greatest amount of the estate passes to intended beneﬁciaries while minimizing the amount of taxes due. Estate planning must also provide for administration and protection of assets during your lifetime (including transfer on death/beneﬁciary designation assets), and for decision making in the event of a disabling illness.
Life changes, you acquire new assets, sell assets, there are new family memebrs, and you need to make sure your Estate Plan keeps up with these changes. Your plan should be reviewed at least every three years. Uniquely You provides a complimentary three year checkup of your plan to ensure that as your life changes, so does your estate plan and to confirm your assets are held properly for maximum protection.
Attorneys who primarily work with seniors and people with special needs appreciate the complex ﬁnancial and social decisions their clients face. Elder Law attorneys bring to their practice a knowledge of their clients that allows them and their staﬀ to ignore the myths relating to aging and the competence of seniors. At the same time, they will take into account and empathize with some of the true physical and mental diﬃculties that often accompany the aging process. Because the law is so complex, Elder Law attorneys are a particularly appropriate source of advice. Your Elder Law attorney can assist you in planning for the expenses of long-term care as well as planning for the protection of assets for the rest of the family.
