Estate Planning

Revocable Living Trust

Living trusts, Wills, and other estate tools

Estate planning is not just for the wealthy or the elderly. Putting yourself in control of how your assets are divided up after you die is something that you should do in order to save your family excessive estate taxes, legal fees, legal battles, and family fights.

Your Default Plan

Everyone has an estate plan by default. Each state has defined rules governing how your assets are distributed upon your death. By default, if you die without a will, you have what is called an intestate will. Click here for default Estate Plan to read a synopsis of what this will would read if you had written it.

-- From the desk of Lee R. Phillips --

Dear Internet Friend,

Ask Yourself:

  • Do I have a Will? Does it do what it is supposed to for me?
  • Do I have a Revocable Living Trust? Is it going to Avoid Probate and eliminate Estate Taxes?
  • How about a Living Will? The Terri Schiavo case has made it clear that the right kind of legal documents (the living will and durable power of attorney) need to be in place BEFORE illness strikes.
  • If I were to have an accident and be sued, is my family going to lose most or all of what I have worked my whole life to give them?
  • Am I in a position to take advantage of the tax laws and effectively make an extra $5,000 or $10,000 this year?
  • Can my family afford to have me wait any longer to do this work?

You probably know that you need some type of estate plan and asset protection plan, but you really aren't sure what needs to be done.

How Severe Illness Transformed Me
into a Top Estate Planning Attorney

Over twenty years ago, I was a young patent attorney fresh out of law school. Things were going quite well, until I was suddenly diagnosed with cancer... terminal cancer... and I was told I had only about 3 weeks to live. As you can imagine, that ruins your entire day.

After a very long battle, most of which I don't even remember, I finally beat the cancer. But my life was changed forever. Not working for over 2 years can ruin you financially.


"But the Legal System Took Me to the Cleaners
...and I was an Attorney!"


After seeing first-hand the effects of financial tragedies on my own family, I dedicated my career to helping others do the simple legal paperwork that can make all the difference in the world when financial tragedies such as death, taxes, lawsuits, and illness strike.


Take a look around my web site. We have posted a lot of good information. And consider getting my Estate Planning DVD, which I am offering for free for a short time.

To Your Success,

Lee R. Phillips

The Real Key to perfect Estate Planning is:
• Proper Education
• Easy to Understand Estate Planning Documents
• Professional Legal Support

But Why Do I Need Estate Planning?

Most people put off their planning indefinitely, hoping that somehow they'll never die or never become seriously ill. Not facing the reality of death and illness makes them feel as though they can escape it. But in the back of their mind, they are often disturbed that something isn't in place.

Peace of mind is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and your loved ones. Knowing you have your affairs in order to protect those close to you from legal headaches can really change your life.

I attended your seminar in St. Louis last year.... It feels great to know that I now have all my mother's estate in order. When she passes, I'm confident that there will be NO PROBATE and no estate taxes. I just wanted to thank you for making things so easy.

With just a little estate planning education on the "tools of wealth", you can save your family tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees and taxes, hundreds of hours of time, and prevent emotional damage caused by a long probate process. Avoiding probate is one of the top reasons that people cite for estate planning. Probate can be easily avoided with a little knowledge and planning. Tax planning and asset protection are other good reasons to begin learning about the tools of estate planning. With just a little planning, you can double the amount of wealth that your family enjoys.

Planning for your Parents...
Helping your parents in estate planning is really going to benefit you just as much (or more) than it will them. You will be saving time, money, and family fights in the long run if you help them understand the aspects of planning, and provide a cost effective way to take care of the all-important legal documents they will need.

Estate Planning - Powerful Tools

Lee R. Phillips, a national expert in the field of estate planning and asset protection, has taught a half a million success-oriented people how to protect themselves from the financial nightmares of lawsuits, taxes, divorce, illness, death, bankruptcy and all the other disasters that threaten your security and peace of mind.

Revocable Living Trust, Living Will, and more

Lee has prepared easy to use, comprehensive estate planning education materials that are specifically designed to get you started using powerful legal tools such as the Revocable Living Trust, Living Will, Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, Family Limited Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies, Corporations and more.

Each "tool" in the law has some advantages and disadvantages. You will learn what the legal tools are and how to use them to save taxes, protect your assets from law suits, have peace of mind, and even make more money. When you learn to use the right tool to accomplish your goal, the tool makes your life much easier. In the carpentry work you wouldn't use a hammer to put in a screw. In your legal work you also need to use the proper tool for each situation. A Living Trust, Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, and Living Will are a good start for planning your estate. The tools really aren't hard to use; you just need to be taught how to use them.

Estate Planning, Asset Protection, and Tax Planning

Lee firmly believes that this is information that you need to understand and do for yourself. The major problem with most estate planning is a lack of understanding. The attorney throws together the documents, but fails to train the individual on how to use and maintain them. The documents then become ineffective as things change over time.

Even worse, many attorneys write themselves into your estate planning by guaranteeing your family a long, expensive probate process. It is well known that attorneys can create a very good 'retirement plan' for themselves in future probates if they write up a lot of ineffective estate plans.

Once you understand the concepts of estate planning and asset protection, you will be in a much better position is obtain the desired effect (i.e. avoiding probate, avoiding lawsuits, etc). You'll understand how to use your living trust and other tools correctly.

An investment in yourself and your family can provide a lifetime of understanding of the legal issues that are guaranteed to affect your family sooner or later. Proper planning in advance will save you time, money and aggravation.
