"Ashley has been making this difficult decision easy and painless. I didn’t know how I was going to feel about creating a trust fund for my loved ones. She educated my wife and I on why it is so important to take care of your affairs. She has been a blessing. I have lost so many friends and family in such a short time period. This experience with Ashley has made my mind at ease. I would recommend any of my friends and family to do the same."
"It’s been a very pleasant experience for us to work with Ashley. She is very approachable and detail-minded. Her fees are fair for the big amount of work she has put in. I highly recommend her for your family’s estate planning. To be able to get peace of mind from her services is priceless! Thank you, Ashley!"
Our Unique Promise
How You hire us
We are building relationships, not documents. For that reason, we help you organize your financial life and legacy goals before we get hired, ensuring our work is based on the full picture of what matters most.
What we Protect
The assets most often lost between generations are intangible. Our personalized process ensures everything from your values to your voice are protected during your life and for generations to come.
How We Plan
Every estate plan is unique, driven by your personal relationships and risk factors. We work with you to map out the most likely scenarios for you, and plan for each as life changes.
WHAT YOU SEE
You will know what you pay and what you are paying for at every step of our relationship. We offer a “no surprise” promise, ensuring transparency so we stay on the same side of the table, every step of the way.
How We Deliver
The majority of estate plans are left unfinished and unsigned. We help you mitigate the biggest risk in legacy planning – procrastination – by making it easy to make decisions and solidify legal documents as they are needed.
What You Can Trust
One-and-done estate plans are a recipe for failure. We build lifetime relationships of trust with you so that your financial and legal decision making evolves at the speed of life, elevating meaning and purpose in every season.

About Ashley L. Thompson
Hello, I am your neighborhood Personal Family Lawyer.
What I know is that your legacy is about more than wills and trusts, and it is about more than money. As your trusted advisor, I help you make the very best legal decisions for your family with the kind of guidance usually reserved for only very high net worth individuals.
Our life and legacy planning model covers not just what happens with your assets, but sets you up to pass on what matters most to you: Your values. Your priorities. Your relationships. Your life. Your legacy. All at a price that is much less than if your family had to go to court or be involved in conflict after you are gone.
