Estate PlanningEstate Planning

Many people believe that estate planning is only for people who are wealthy, or have elaborate schemes for passing their money to their heirs. Others don’t want to think about estate planning unless faced with an illness, or contemplating their death. But Estate planning is for everyone. Estate planning is not “death planning;” it’s “life planning,” and an essential and rewarding process for individuals and families.

Our experienced attorneys will guide you through a process to uncover your hopes, fears, and expectations for you and those who are most important to you. We will prepare your legal documents, but those documents themselves are not “estate planning.” Estate Planning is a process, represented by a complete strategy that is established by a professional who has taken the time to get to know you, and who is committed to designing a specific plan for you.

Please contact our Client Services Director, Gwen Dunn, at 502.721.7139 or to schedule an initial client meeting or ask a question. And, remember, there is never a charge for that first client meeting.

Christine, Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance with my father’s estate. You definitely
made the process simple and stress free. It was a pleasure working with you as well. | I have worked with Michael Pitt for more than 20 years and in my experience no one is better at resolving difficult issues and still keeping everyone happy. | There are wide differences in lawyer’s abilities and experiences. Common sense and a level head remain important. Christine Emison handled my estate planning and probate matters with great skill, compassion and timeliness. | Mike, …Your knowledge and experience in a difficult area of my life has brought peace of mind.… I hope that it is acceptable to you that I share with friends and family. I want those I care about to know about your services! | Chris, … With the many changes in laws impacting our assets, health care and estate, it is a real comfort to have you working for our best interests. We appreciate all your and the staff at Pitt & Emison’s efforts and results. | Mike, … Your clients are lucky to have you on their side, looking for the very best, practical solution to achieve their specific goals. It is a pleasure to work with you. | We feel confident that everything was set up in the best way possible after consulting with Chris. She was very patient and explained everything in such a way that it made sense to us. We loved working with Chris and appreciate her tremendously. | Chris was extremely dedicated, punctual and personable. We were lucky to have been referred to her. We were very satisfied with her work and demeanor. | I could not have asked for a more professional, knowledgeable, efficient individual. As an added bonus, Chris really cares about her clients in a way that I haven’t seen in the business world in a long time. It is refreshing and makes you feel very safe in her hands.
