Building relationships through individualized care
At Bauersfeld, Burton, Hendricks & Vanderhoof, LLC, we realize that you may have little understanding of the structure, purpose, operation or performance of some of the financial assets you hold. Many of our clients are widows whose husbands managed the family’s finances. These clients appreciate our patience, our sympathy and our willingness to answer their questions in great detail. We understand you may be on unfamiliar ground when you come to see us. Our foremost desire is to be helpful, so we focus on educating our clients. We don’t just want you to have the right documents; we want you to know what’s in those documents, how best to use that information, and what effect that use will have. Our personal service even extends to making calls at your home, hospital or assisted living facility.
Thorough analyses leading to “big picture” planning
Our Bethesda estate planning attorneys look at your situation holistically. We perform a thorough inventory of your financial structure to get the big picture of your strengths, needs and goals. We craft financial strategies and choose financial instruments based upon your unique circumstances. This level of individualized service is the main reason our firm has retained clients for generations.
Online forms may be free, but reliable advice is invaluable
Recently, there’s been a great push in media advertising for online, do-it-yourself legal filing for everything from LLC formation to wills and estate planning. While you might think Bethesda estate planning lawyers have lost business as a result, we’ve actually picked up a great amount of work correcting costly errors related to online filing. The old maxim still holds: You can do it fast, or you can do it right.
