Hoopes, Adams & Alexander PLC believes that educating clients about their many options is critical to the creation of a truly effective estate plan.
Ronald Adams has first-hand knowledge and experience regarding the legal complexities, delays and greatly increased costs associated with the lack of proper planning. His principal goals are to guide people and their loved ones through the complex minefield of estate planning, to ensure people are able to care for themselves and their family members while alive and well and in the event of disability; and give people confidence in knowing they will leave their estate to whom they want, when they want, and in the way they want.
What makes our firm different is that we prepare our clients for life rather than death. We were built with the needs of growing families in mind. We understand our clients are busy, they are growing, they are planning for a life of prosperity and they value ease, convenience and efficiency. We want our clients to know they've made the best decisions for their family and that their plan will work when their loved ones need it most. They want to make sure their children will be taken care of in the best way possible.
That is our focus as well. We've developed unique systems to give you the same access to a Personal Family Lawyer as was previously only available to the likes of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Sam Walton so that you can have the guidance you need to build and maintain a life of prosperity and wealth.
We encourage communication with our clients. In fact, we've thrown out the time clocks so you never have to be afraid to call with a quick questions (or even a not so quick question). Everything we do is billed on a flat-fee basis, agreed to in advance, so there are never any surprises.
We have a whole team to serve you. When you call our office to ask your quick question, you won't have to wait hours or days for a phone call back. You'll get your question answered right away. And, if you need to schedule a more in-depth legal or stragic call with your personal lawyer, a call will be scheduled when you're available and ready so we can make the very best use of your time and not waste time by playing phone-tag.
And, we ensure the most important details of your planning are followed through with and your plan continues to work throughout your lifetime.
We have a full time "funding coordinator" to ensure your assets are protected throughout your lifetime and none of your assets will end up going through a long, expensive court process or lost to the state because they were missed after your death.
Most of all, we care. We're personal family lawyers with families of our own and we know how much you care about your loved ones. Let us help protect them ensuring your sense of well-being.
