At Chawla Legal Group, we develop lifelong relationships with you, so we can ensure that you will have lifelong plans that give you lifelong control.
We do not treat you like a transaction, charge you for your documents, and send you on your way. Instead, we welcome you into an estate planning process that starts with education to help you decide what your goals are. Next, we assess what your goals, needs, and wants are so we can put the proper estate planning tools in place. Then we design your plan and draft all the necessary documents. After reviewing and signing the documents, we make sure the plan is fully funded and that you have had a discussion with your family and financial professionals to make sure everyone is on the same page as to how your plan will work.
