Family is the heart of a home and life.
When protecting one's family and business is the highest priority, why trust just anyone with estate planning? The Kaiser Law Firm, P.C. comprises two experienced estate planning lawyers and a dedicated staff, all of whom assure they devote themselves to their client's priorities.
"We provide our clients with peace of mind, knowing that everything they've worked hard for during their lifetimes is protected for everyone they love. Family is the key part of our business, and when clients come to us, we treat them like family," says Philip 'Phil' Kaiser, Esq., owner. "We believe that there's no law firm that's going to care as much about a client's particular situation as our firm does."
"Almost any law firm can draft a contract, set up a trust, or construct a living will, but not many lawyers take the time to understand an individual client’s goals and fears," says Andy Kaiser, Phil's son and partner of the firm.
Together, this group handles planning for businesses, estates and wealth protection. Business planning advice relates to starting an operation, increasing its revenue, selling it, and all stages in between. Estate planning spans various life stages: single adults, married couples, children going to college, blended families and retirement. Their wealth protection covers steps for high net worth individuals, pre-nuptials and post-selling companies.
At The Kaiser Law Firm, P.C., Phil says they pride themselves on the following qualities:
- Rapport. "Our entire legal team is personable and approachable. We get to know each client on a personal level."
- Commitment. "When a client chooses us, our goal is to stay with him or her for the long term. A business’s legal needs are continuous, and a family estate plan should frequently be evaluated over the years."
- Availability. "In a mega law firm, it is often difficult to get past the receptionist when you have a question between meetings. Solo attorneys are often stretched too thin to be able to respond quickly. The team approach we take at The Kaiser Law Firm, P.C. allows us to be available to our clients at almost any time."
- Preparation. "Our attorneys both have master’s degrees in tax law, which allows us to educate and advise our clients on how to best structure their plans to reduce taxes."
As founder of the firm, Phil says he launched the firm based on core values regarding long-term relationships centered on confidence and trust; fully understanding clients’ circumstances, needs, goals and anxieties; staying abreast of new developments in the law and how those developments affect clients; using the most appropriate, efficient and cost-effective strategies to accomplish clients' objectives; and making positive differences in clients' lives.
As an ongoing commitment to informing and guiding others, Andy typically presents two seminars a month, one on Estate Planning and one on Asset Protection Planning. "Our educational seminars are free and open to the public, so we welcome all friends and family," he says.
Andy's seminars are held at the firm's office located at 16090 Swingley Ridge Road, Suite 360, in Chesterfield. He says seating is limited, so those interested in reserving a spot should email Brigget Kolb at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an online form provided at KaiserLawFirm.com/Reports/Seminars.cfm.
Andy's next available, 60-minute seminar is April 13 at 4:30-5:30 p.m.: "Top 10 Estate Planning Mistakes (and how to avoid them)."
"It's been our experience that most people make at least one of 10 critical estate planning mistakes. These mistakes could cost you and your family needless anxiety, as well as unnecessary court costs, attorney's fees, taxes, nursing home bills, and exposure to the claims of in-laws and other unforeseen creditors," he says.
Andy says that every day, his own family is his driving force. "And I want to make sure that whatever I would do for my family, I do the same things for client's families as well."
As Phil summarizes, "We've been around quite a long time, and we believe that we can predict quite a few things that will happen in people's lives. We believe that we can create a plan for people that will not only last for their generation but likely will last for generations to come."
