Helping Families Achieve Their Goals.
Laura Kennedy has focused her entire career on helping families achieve their estate planning goals in order to provide peace of mind to their loved ones. She works with individuals and families to create complete estate plans customized to their unique situations. Suggested solutions are customized to the individual needs of each client.
The Experience to Identify Details.
Customized plans mean that Laura doesn’t approach any situation with a templated solution, as issues of this magnitude are rarely black and white. Laura has the experience to identify details that are often not part of a pre-formed solution. While one family may need basic wills and lifetime incapacity documents, another family may need sophisticated tax planning techniques or methods to minimize conflict between heirs.
Practical & Easy-to-Understand Perspective.
Because of Laura’s experience in estate and trust administration, she can advise clients about how their documents will work from a practical and easy-to-understand perspective. Discussing the intricacies of trusts, ensuring real estate is transferred properly after death, and navigating the probate process are all areas of Laura’s expertise accumulated from years of working at some of the nation’s top law firms.
