Leaving a Real Legacy – Who You Are & What’s Important to You
How We Guide You to Leave a Legacy
That’s About Much More Than Just Your Money
After you are gone, your loved ones will miss you deeply. They will long for your words of counsel and concern. Hearing your voice again would be a tremendous gift.
Through our unique legacy process, you can give your loved ones the most precious gift – a lasting expression of your love. What could be more valuable?
At Flagstaff Law Group we believe estate planning is not just about transferring your financial assets and personal belongings. It’s also about capturing and transferring your valuable intangible gifts: who you are and what’s important to you – your values, insights, stories and experience.
Let Me Tell You a Story
When my own Father died when I was 18, he didn’t leave us much in the way of financial wealth. He left us a little bit of life insurance money that we were able to put toward college tuition and books. But much more treasured by us were the intangible assets he left us, including his stories, the voicemails from him that I would listen to until one day they were lost from my phone, and even his handwritten barbeque sauce recipe that I keep tucked in my family recipe box.
How I wish I still had those voicemail messages! Or even better, that I had a recording of my dad telling me what he loved about me, what his hopes for me were, what life lessons were most important to him, what values he most wanted for me, or even just hearing his laughter and his stories again.
You Could Make a Recording, But Who Has Time?
I used to tell my clients to record a message for their loved ones and put it in a safe place or simply write notes to their children letting them know how they felt about them. But so few people ever actually did it. We just get so caught up with the day to day of our lives that focusing on leaving a legacy seems to take a back seat.
We Help You Capture These Precious Moments
We realized we’d have to build this into our planning process and not make it just another thing you’ll get done someday. That’s why at Flagstaff Law Group we make it part of our planning for every client to help you capture and pass on more than just your money: your intellectual, spiritual and human assets, who you are and what’s important to you.
For more information about how we help you pass on your most valuable assets – your values, insights, stories and experience – to your loved ones, or about our resources for leaving your family with a true legacy, please contact us.
What Would It Be Worth?
Can you picture someone who’s passed away, someone you love and miss deeply? Can you recall a conversation you had with them? Can you remember the sound of their voice and what they told you? What if you could hear their voice again?
What if they could speak to you—heart to heart—and share their wisdom and advice? What would it be worth to you to hear their words one more time?
What is it worth to you to know that they’ll always know exactly how much you love them? It’s worth a lot to us and we are honored to be able to provide you and your family with this gift. This is one of our favorite parts of the work we do with our clients, and often, we hear it’s their favorite part of our process too.
