The process of establishing our revised Estate Plan has been very smooth and professional. We met with our assigned attorney in person and he was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He gave us a chance to review the documents before being submitted and the final result was a high quality product. The document-signing session with the Legacy representative also went very smoothly and he offered good advice on how we were to proceed to insure full implementation of the Trust. He is scheduled to return next week in a follow-up session to answer any residual questions. So far, the Legacy process exceeds my expectations.read more
We decided on the Legacy Estate planning after reviewing positive comments. We are retirement age with some health issues particularly with my husband. Most everything we own is in joint accounts but a few were in my husband's name only. We needed the assurance that if something happened to one of us that the surviving spouse would be able to carry on with all the financial decisions that would need to be made. This plan gave us great peace of mind knowing that we have everything in place in the event of our deaths so that our sons would know what our wishes and desires were. We did living wills as well as durable Power of attorney as well as durable power of health care. We feel confident that this plan meets our needs perfectly. All aspects of the estate planning was fully explained. It was also a nice bonus that a notary came to our home to
notarize the documents . It is affordable which made it easier for those of us on fixed income to purchase-- much less expensive than an attorney. We also have options to update a certain number of documents each year free of charge So glad that we found a company that we felt comfortable with. We highly recommend this company.read more

We were treated great with everyone we dealt with from Legacy. The only thing is when we finished, we realized we didn't have any money for us to secure. If you have money it is a very nice company to deal with.read more
When I first met with the representative of Legacy I was concerned that what I was told was too good to be true. It wasn't. Over time, the experience with Legacy, particularly the attorney I worked with, was beyond my expectations. Areas that I never thought about were covered as we planned for the future. I now have a sense that everything is in order for my family when I move into eternity. This brings me great peace. Thank you, Legacy!read more

My wife Gail and I worked with Legacy Assurance to set up a Revocable Trust to avoid Probate of our Estate for our three children. We assumed it would be a lot of work and a bit of a hassle, but we were wrong! The people at Legacy made it a simple step-by-step process. We felt confident after our initial meeting with the Legacy Representative and all follow-up meetings were quick, simple and very convenient because "they came to our home." All conferences with the Legacy lawyer were conveniently conducted by phone or email. The price was a lot lower than we expected too.
We are very happy that we choose Legacy Assurance for our Revocable Trust, because now we can rest easy. We recommend Legacy Assurance if you are looking to set up a Trust for your estate because they are professionals and experts at what they do!
