Client Care Program
The Family Estate & Legacy Client Care Program Essential and Elite Services to Keep Your Plans Up-to-Date
Life is a dynamic process, and your estate plan needs to adjust periodically to keep up.
For all plans other than our Basic Plan, Evans Legacy Law Group offers a one-year complimentary membership in the Family Estate & Legacy Client Care Program™. The Client Care Program ensures that your revocable trust and ancillary documents, including your durable financial power of attorney, will, health care power of attorney and living will, are up-to-date and ready when you and your family need them.
Many estate planning attorneys simply prepare documents and send you out the door. At Evans Legacy Law Group, we want to ensure that your plans will continue to meet your needs as laws change and family situations evolve. If any documents need amending–or if you just want someone to assure you that your plans are still good to go—you don’t have to start from scratch. Our Client Care Program has you covered.
You Will Be Ready For:
Legal Updates—State and federal laws that affect your will, trust, investments and retirement accounts change constantly. Unless you follow developments in legislation and court cases, you won’t know when a change in the law affects your plan or offers new opportunities to improve your position. Our team monitors these developments to ensure your plan still meets your needs as efficiently as possible.
Changes in Family Circumstances—Family dynamics change all the time. Without timely updates, loved ones could be left out of your plan. If you want to add beneficiaries or change the percentage allocated to loved ones, our team can make those amendments and you won’t have to worry about hourly legal fees.
Aligning New Assets—Funding your trust is not a “one and done” process. When you open a new account or make certain changes, you need to act to ensure the assets are aligned correctly. We can explain in detail what you need to do or assist directly with the transfer.
Accessing Key Documents Quickly and Easily—Client Care Program members receive a custom Client Portal that can be accessed 24/7. This provides easy access to critical legal documents including your revocable living trust, will, durable financial power of attorney, health care power of attorney, and living will. If an emergency requires a sudden trip to the hospital, you or a loved one can download critical documents right from the Portal. You can also upload prepaid funeral arrangements and instructions and send messages to your legal team securely through your Client Portal.
Staying Informed—We provide Client Care Program members with a variety of tools to keep informed about legal changes and evolving techniques to get the most from your resources. Our team regularly conducts workshops that are free for members of the Client Care Program and their guests. We also provide free access to books, podcasts, and webinars with estate planning tips and insight.

The conference provides a critical opportunity to assess the need for adjustments, anticipate developments that could arise in the near future, or discuss new ideas such as charitable bequests or funding options for long-term care.

- Sale of a family business
