Our “Wealth Design” Approach
“Wealth” is more than just your financial assets, but includes your purposes, passions, value-systems, stories, cares, concerns, and personal treasures. The “numbers” are irrelevant unless your specific circumstances and story are known; focus should always be on people and their concerns, and not just a technical solution.
Our firm takes a holistic or “whole-person” approach to your estate and business planning. Our passion lies in helping you define your wealth more broadly and then assisting you in designing a “client-centered” plan that is technically sound, tax efficient, accurate without compromising flexibility, incorporate your financial, social, emotional and spiritual values and aspirations, and establishes a meaningful legacy during your lifetime and beyond.
For those needing help with business planning, Stone Law Offices, Ltd. works with business owners to develop and implement a business “Master Plan” that will enable you to enjoy and benefit from your business during the “third act” (i.e., life after work). We can assist you in all phases of the business cycle, from starting new businesses, assisting established businesses with internal risk management and operating matters, and developing an appropriate exit strategy or continuation plan for business succession.
For more information about our approach and process, see our Mission Statement and Core Values and Beliefs.
