Integrated Dynasty Estate Planning

Live Well, Leave a Legacy™

What Sets Durfee Law Group Apart?

DURFEE LAW GROUP

At Durfee Law Group, we focus on helping our clients structure their estates to be a blessing for generations to come. Too often, an inheritance ends up being a painful or destructive burden. It is not just what the family does with the wealth. It is what the wealth does to the family. Let us help you avoid the common pitfalls.

When families have a healthy relationship with wealth, the family thrives and the wealth grows and prospers. That is what it means to create a “dynasty.” The path to a family dynasty may be narrow, but it is well worn. We have helped guide many families in their journey. We are very familiar with the rough patches along the way. We can help you.

Dynasty Estate Planning is our niche. Typical “estate plans” focus on events surrounding death. The wealth hits beneficiaries like a flood when a dam breaks. They get wet, once, but the water (or the wealth) moves on, leaving a path of destruction in its wake. With Dynasty Planning, wealth can flow through your family like a stream. Each generation receives water in turn. The stream also grows as each generation contributes.
