How It Works
We love working with small business owners. After all, we’re business owners ourselves! And we get it: you’re busy, you’re growing, and you desire a life of prosperity and ease. It can be hard to manage all your many different hats, while still getting the advice and guidance you need. That’s where we come in. As your trusted business legal advisor, we’ll help you do things right the first time, so you can stop worrying about the things “you don’t know you don’t know,” and start putting your energy and attention where it rightfully should be: on putting your meaningful work into the world—the work that only you are uniquely here to do.
1. Business Legal Roadmap Session
*complimentary for clients in our VIP Client Membership Program
We’ll start with clarity by getting to know the inner workings of your business through a Business Legal Roadmap Session. We'll review your legal, insurance, financial, and tax ("LIFT") foundations, answer the burning questions you’ve been dying to ask a lawyer, and ensure you've got everything you need to stay protected, stay compliant, and reach your higher ground. Together, we'll create a legal roadmap to fill any leaky holes we’ve identified, and be sure you’ve got a game plan to operate at your highest level of service.
2. Custom Legal Package
If you need additional support beyond the Business Legal Roadmap Session, we’ll craft a custom legal package for you with different options designed with your needs in mind. You’ll pick your level of service and legal fee based on the intersection of your goals and budget.
We work with a team of like-minded advisors that operate with the same heart of service that we do, to ensure sure we don’t just cover your legal needs, but also the equally important insurance, financial, and tax pillars of your life and business. We’ll serve as your business quarterback, building and guiding the team you need to succeed.

Before I Hire an Estate Planning Lawyer, What Should I Know?
Many estate planning attorneys take a “one-size fits all” approach with their clients; they do this so that they can work with as many people as possible in a short period of time. In addition to leaving the client with a totally cold and impersonal experience, this way of planning can lead to unintended results in the long run. Conscious Legal is different.
How Do You Calculate Fees?
All of our fees are fixed fees agreed to in advance, so there are never any surprises. At our initial meeting, you will select the level of planning and fee that works best for you.
What Does Your Estate Planning Provide?
We don’t just prepare a set of legal documents for you and send you on your way. We make sure your assets are owned in the right way, your kids’ well-being is properly planned for, everyone you’ve named in your plan knows what to do if anything happens to you, and make sure that none of your assets become part of the $58 billion of unclaimed assets across the United States.
What Does a Family Wealth Planning Session Cover?
During our meeting together, we will guide you to look at what would happen for your loved ones and to your assets if something were to happen to you. Then, we’ll review what you want to happen and help you create a roadmap to implement your plan as easily as possible. Clients who have procrastinated for years routinely tell us how easy and seamless we make this process.
Why Should I Schedule the Family Wealth Planning Session?
Even if you never do any planning with us, the Family Wealth Planning Session alone is a hugely valuable process, because you will create a full inventory of your assets and ensure your loved ones knows what you have. Then, when we meet in person, we will review everything you own, and discuss everyone you love, and you will understand exactly what would happen in the event of your death or incapacity.
What Happens After I Schedule My Appointment?
After scheduling your appointment, you will receive your Estate Planning Worksheet and other important information that you will want to review prior to your personal Family Wealth Planning Session. You will return your Estate Planning Worksheet to our office at least 3 days prior to your Session or we will need to reschedule your Session. Feel free to call the office at any time if you need assistance completing your Worksheet, or have any questions.
What Should I Expect During Our Meeting?
On the day of your meeting, please expect to spend up to 2 hours with your attorney. The initial meeting with your attorney has two purposes:
- To identify whether there is a good fit between you and our attorney who will become your Personal Family Lawyer.
- To educate you about the law and what would happen if you died with your current (or no) plan in place.
By looking at what would happen under your current plan, you can identify what you would want to happen differently and then together with your Personal Family Lawyer’s guidance make the decisions that are necessary (including choosing your own fee) to give you the peace of mind of knowing your loved ones would stay out of court, chaos and conflict, if something happens to you.
