About Our Estate Planning Law Firm

At Evans Legacy Law Group LLC, we are not just “document drafters” that just create a “one size fits all" estate plan.  You, your family, your goals and the particular mix of assets you own are unique and we create customized plans based on your particular situation. We form a working relationship with our clients.

We educate you, take the time to get to know you, your family, and what’s important to you and/or your business. We will discuss your concerns, values, goals and we are dedicated to gladly and patiently answering all of your questions.  Our goal is to create an estate plan that is exactly right for you and your family.
