Preparing for your appointment
Congratulations on taking the first step to ensure you and your loved ones are armed with the information you need to make informed decisions both now and in the future! We look forward to spending time getting to know you and your family and finding ways that we can help! We discuss some frequently asked questions regarding your first meeting below:
Why do you need so much information for the first meeting?
Our practice takes a holistic approach to meeting the needs of our clients. For us to assist you in making the best decisions possible it is important that we understand the full scope of the situation. We are not only considering what your care needs are, but we are also considering care decisions that may need to be made in the future. When we make recommendations we consider not only the immediate need but we apply a forward thinking strategy to ensure your future needs are considered as well.
What if my loved one is not able to travel to your office to attend the meeting?
Thats a great question! We are happy to conference in family members who would like to attend the appointment but are not able to due to schedules, locations etc. We also travel to various locations for signings and follow up meetings. Let us know what your needs are and we will do what we can to accommodate you!
What if I can’t finish all the paperwork in time or find all my documents?
That is ok! Sometimes, especially when a crisis occurs, there is little time to prepare for your appointment as throughly as you’d like to. Do the best you can with the paperwork we give you. When we meet with you we will let you know if any additional information is needed to take care of your needs. Once we meet, our team can help you put a plan in place to gather any information we may need to take care of you.
What can I expect at my appointment?
You can expect that the attorney will take the time to listen to you, take steps to understand your situation and will spend time educating you on the programs and laws that are pertinent to your situation. The attorney will illustrate solutions and notes specific to your situation and you will have the opportunity to leave armed with these illustrations as well as many other helpful pieces of information.
