    WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THE ESTATE PLANNING PROCESS? 

    Coming to Bains Law, Inc. means working directly with me, Kenea Bains. I am a Lawyer and Certified Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law Specialist. I want to give you a brief overview of what to expect from estate planning services from my firm. 

    The first step is to schedule a free initial consultation. We will sit down face to face and discuss you and your unique situation. I will be asking you a lot of questions initially to ensure when you ask questions of me, that I am giving you the answers that are most applicable to your unique situation and needs. My intent is that you walk away from our first consultation better informed and aware of options. I also want you to get a sense of me and whether I am the best person to walk you through this process. It is important that you trust the person you are working with and feel comfortable. 

    At the end of our meeting, we can discuss ways I can help, my fees for services, and what the next step would be if we decided to move forward in an attorney-client relationship. Until paperwork is signed, you aren't committing to anything and I am not your lawyer. There is no obligation after an initial consultation. I take on a limited number of clients to ensure that I can provide each one with individualized attention and the highest level of customer service.

    My fees are reasonable based on my expertise and individualized attention, but cannot compete with "will mills" (cookie cutter, internet sites focused on a simplistic approach).

    However, if you look at the complete needs for your estate- depending on the complexity- you may find estate planning services to save you valuable taxes or even be on par with internet sites when you start to add up all of the different aspects of a comprehensive estate plan. It also can be important to ensure that everything in your estate plan matches up so that it is very clear to your family, judges, banks, etc. exactly what you want carried out when you are unable to speak for yourself. 

    If you decide to move forward with me as your lawyer, we begin the process. I am available to answer questions at each stage of the process, and I will ensure everything is done right, the first time. 

    If this sounds like what you are looking for, give me a call at (209) 521-1500 or use the form on the right to request your free initial estate planning consultation.
