Education is Critical to a Successful Estate Plan

One of the Top Hurdles We Hear About is Not Knowing Where to Start

When we started Goldfarb & Luu in 2008, we learned about estate planning and elder law from the ground up. That’s right, we had never practiced this area of law before. We chose this area of law to make a powerful impact on everyday people. While we have many wealthy clients today, we are deeply committed to making sure that every client – despite your wealth – gets the same education and level of detail in your estate plan.

Wealth can make life and caregiving easier, but it doesn’t change the fact that we are all going to pass away, and most of us will become incapacitated before our passing.

Why We Want to Teach You

We absolutely love giving back by teaching others about estate planning in a unique way. Because we learned from the beginning, we know how to teach from the beginning. We don’t make arrogant assumptions and we welcome all questions! Each one of our clients has taught us something about what they know well; we’ve worked hard to know the reality of estate planning and elder law really well!

Sadly, about 98% of estate plans we review have fatal flaws that our clients don’t know about. Through our education and collaboration, we are able to update (or create from scratch) plans that will accomplish a variety of goals, most importantly, they:

How We Can Teach You

We have given over 100 presentations to small and large groups. Whether participants are knowledgeable about estate planning and elder law or not, everyone comments on how much they learn and enjoy it.

One participant emailed, “Thank you for your very informative and helpful presentation to the SAGE organization. As a 27-year member, this was one of the best!”

A key part of our firm’s mission is to demystify the estate planning and elder law processes and counsel clients to understand the options and help you make the best decisions to protect you and your family. We are dedicated to community education and would love the opportunity to speak with your group at your next event.
