There is no shortage of lawyers and companies that can draft a trust for you. But if you're like my husband and I, and was totally clueless about how trusts really work, then I highly suggest Estate Planning Group Hawaii. They offer free consultations either through group seminars or (as we did it) one on one with the lawyer. We met with Mr. Dean Park, one of the two lawyers in this office. He is very patient, friendly, knowledgeable, approachable AND available to us. He always got back to our calls or emails within the day, before and after we became his clients. And Mr. Park, on his own time, graciously met with us and our accountant so that we could all be on the same page. Nice! We interviewed a couple other lawyers before going with Estate Planning Group. Although these other firms cost less and were just as friendly and approachable we felt that Estate Planning group presented themselves extremely professionally and thoroughly. In the end, their affiliations & approach to estate planning best represented our family and what we were trying to accomplish. Estate planning is not for just the "rich" or entitled. If you have kids and/or a pot to piss in that you don't want to be tied up in public probate for years, then I highly suggest you give these folks a call.
