Joe Schultz Law

Solving legal problems since 1972

I work with people to make their estate planning as thorough and complete as possible. Which is why I always keep the goals of my clients in mind to create an estate plan they feel comfortable with. It is really important to me that clients know that I am really listening. I care about what they are looking for in an estate planning attorney and advocate.

Prospective clients will often tell me that they don’t know where things are with their current attorney. So I work to ensure that you are informed and included throughout the process. I believe that legal problems are frustrating enough without wondering about where we are with your case. If that sounds like the kind of relationship you are looking for, call me today to learn more about how I can help solve your legal problem.

A law firm that will
listen and understand your needs


There seems to be a hidden feeling in many people that as long as they don’t sign a will or a trust, they will go on living. Fate couldn’t let them die while their estate planning is in disarray. In my experience, this is an untrue statement that can have lasting emotional and financial impact. In fact, my experience is that clients who do put their estates in order live happier lives thereafter. My clients are secure in the knowledge that they have ensured their families are taken care of and their assets protected. Additionally, a well-prepared person can avoid the costly and protracted probate process through sound estate planning.
