MY PODCAST EPISODES
Nick understands that not every family is the same. Because of this, he works tirelessly to learn about the needs and wishes of each client. After learning about his clients and their families, Nick crafts a holistic estate planning strategy that centers around their needs. He focuses on helping individuals and families plan for the unexpected and the inevitable through holistic estate planning approaches.
“My estate planning career started with a hug. The first client that ever hired me to help with her estate planning needs had been recently widowed. She was faced with mourning the loss of a loved one while trying to navigate the legal system. We spent hours trying to undo the mess that failing to plan had created. Over the course of our conversations I learned about her life and the lives of her late husband and children. I helped educate her about the importance of holistic estate planning and together we addressed her concerns and needs. When the final meeting ended, she walked around the table and gave me a hug. My very first client had an incredible effect on me and I began to approach estate planning in a whole new manner. I realized that estate planning is more about relationships and telling your story than it is about documents.”
Nick believes that we all have a story to tell and a legacy to leave. Proactive estate planning allows you to tell your story and protect your legacy. Nick focuses on taking a holistic approach to estate planning by first looking at the larger picture which allows the final plan to be custom tailored to meet your unique situation. In developing lasting relationships with his clients, Nick allows you to take a deep breath because you have a plan for the unexpected and the inevitable.
