We Take The Worry Out Of “What If”

Many parents fret about what will happen if they die unexpectedly or are somehow unable to parent. A well-crafted estate plan sets down who will be the guardians of your children, who will inherit your property, how the cabin should be used or who will take over the business and how that business should be run.

A professionally crafted estate plan can also cover what your family should do if you are unable to act for yourself, are in a coma, have a stroke or there is little to no brain activity. Not only that, a comprehensive estate plan can leave your family with your last words and wishes. You are able to tell them what you would want them to know, and what you hope for their lives. This is sometimes the most important, enduring aspect of a last will and testament.

While it is impossible to plan for every possibility, an estate plan will lay down what you want and would have wanted.

Client Testimonials

“We were welcomed warmly and made to feel comfortable right away. Our goal was to complete a will. Amanda Hespen was professional and caring and walked us through the process, answering our questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. She told us our options and after our second meeting with her, we left with what we felt was the best option, a trust. We highly recommend Amanda and the Jeffrey P. Scott team.”

S. VICIC

I had an estate planning need to attend to from afar, as I moved out of state years ago. Jeff responded immediately to my online inquiry. We had a phone conversation and he personally took care of all of the paperwork within a few days. Jeff made the whole process extremely simple and easy to complete and he went above and beyond what I was expecting from any lawyer I was going to hire over the phone. I highly recommend Jeff and I will certainly be calling him again if I have any other estate planning needs in Minnesota.

A. Goktepe

“I had the good luck and fortune of working with Jeffrey Scott after the death of my father in Minneapolis. When my father (rest his spirit) passed away, he left behind an old copy of a will, a home filled with filth, numerous creditors, and a complicated mess to manage. I recognized early on that managing his estate would require good legal advice, and I turned to a web search to determine who might be able to assist.”
