Scott Sumner and his team have developed a thorough process to create Wills and Trusts. Using a multi-phase approach to complete each step, they made sure we had time to review and understand what we're doing. After the signing we had a nearly complete, thoughtfully organized binder that will make it so much easier to put to use when needed. It wasn't complete because they also included a list of the additional documents and next steps that we need to add and maintain to have everything in one spot for our heirs. Passing is inevitable. But Sumner and Associates have provided us peace mind by creating a document that will ease the administrative burden on our children after we're gone and helped us ensure that our assets pass quickly to our heirs and not spent unnecessarily in time or money in probate.
