Legacy Planning

In-Person or Virtual
Legacy Plan Consulting is for anyone at any age. Your Estate could represent one of the largest financial transactions of your life.

With advance planning and document organization, your family, Power of Attorney, and Executors will be able to execute your wishes efficiently and without stress.

Compiling everything that your Power of Attorney or Executor needs can be an overwhelming experience. We are organizational experts who help to coordinate all of your important documents in one convenient, catalogued location: the Legacy Plan Organizer.

During the consultation, we help to guide you with the following:

  • A comprehensive consultation, discussing over 15 categories
  • A confidential review and discussion of individual circumstances and concerns
  • Discovery and review of existing Estate Planning documents for potential updates
  • Organization of documents using the Legacy Plan Organizer
  • Documenting final wishes and direction for family members through the family meeting planner and discussion tips
  • Additional resource tools provided to support your Legacy Plan
  • Completed Legacy Plan Organizer binder as your final product

Our services are suitable for Powers of Attorney who wish to have guidance while facilitating care or individuals who are wanting to plan in advance, to provide peace of mind to loved ones.

Legacy Organizer 

The Legacy Plan Organizer is a practical guide developed through Darlene’s many life and work experiences. The Organizer is easy to use, flexible to change to your individual circumstances, and easily adaptable to future changes. 

We have created the workbook so you or someone else can step in and manage a person’s life in case of an emergency, health event, or death. In these situations, it is exceptionally difficult to operate with a lack of information, and it adds an extra burden to you and your loved ones.

None of us know when we will need this information, but life throws curveballs our way that we don’t expect. That’s why it’s critically important to be organized and prepared for the unexpected.
