Why Skabelund Asset Protection?

Asset planning is an inherently complex endeavor, especially for people who have accumulated significant wealth that may include business ownership. It should never be enough for a lawyer to pull out a standardized estate plan off the Internet, enter in a name and some figures and be done. What should happen is that the attorney listens carefully to the client, seeking to understand how they want to bequeath their financial legacy. The estate planner should listen, being sure to know where their client’s fears of exposure and liability are. And the estate planner must do careful analysis of all the client’s assets—everything from real estate holdings to stocks, to businesses, and more.

A trusts and estates lawyer that has done all of this and more isn’t going to whip out the exact same plan for each client. The lawyer that’s really digging deep into each case will have custom-designed solutions that fit the unique situation of every client.

Furthermore, just as every client has a different situation today, so too will each client have a different future. Good estate planning can’t be a one-off activity any more than going to see the doctor can. The plan has to grow with the client, and with the life of their family.

That’s why annual reviews are an important part of what we do at Skabelund. Even more important is the entire mindset we bring to the job—we’re not a mill. We aren’t here to roll estate plans off the assembly line as fast as we can. We’re here to focus, to drill down, and to do the best job possible for each person we work with.
