Why Estate Planning?

Home / Blog / Why Estate Planning?

I’ve been involved in estate planning, probate and estate litigation since I started practicing as an attorney.  Quite frankly, I thought the subject was pretty boring in law school, but that might have been more related to the fact that I didn’t study it until the last semester of my last year.

Estate planning is a very rewarding area of practice, however.  Probably the best part is that unlike different types of litigation (“suing people”), estate planning is largely a win-win proposition.  My clients normally arrive happy and I make sure that they always leave happier.  One of the best aspects of being an estate planning lawyer is that you get to meet a lot of different people and hear about their lives and their families.

It’s a satisfying area of practice and I’m glad I love it because most other areas of law do not interest me.
