We started Tallgrass Estate Planning so we could work with many of the clients who were ignored or overlooked by traditional law firms. We prioritize hospitality, education, and inclusion. We believe estate planning is for everyone.
Meet Laurel and Riley, the creators of Tallgrass Estate Planning. Why would they choose to work from home, together, with their kids? Are they crazy? Are they awesome? Are they a little of both? Stay tuned to find out. Oh, and you might learn a little about estate planning, too.
In Episode 4, we use a few odd examples to highlight some important estate planning principles. If we colonize the moon, how might estate planning work? What about planning for polyamorous folks and others with "non-traditional" relationship and family structures? And what do you need to know if you take your kid's friends on a vacation with your family?
In Episode 3 of Tallgrass After dark, we take on a couple of hot topics: Taxes and Social Justice! In a continuation of our conversation in Episode 2, Laurel, Josh, and Riley discuss different ethical stances on paying taxes vs planning for tax efficiency. Which leads into broader questions of social justice and what estate planning has to do with things like systemic racism. It's a big conversation. Listen, share, and comment. We'd love to hear your thoughts and discuss these issues with you.
Basic considerations for creating an estate plan: 1) Something is better than nothing. 2) Pay for legal counseling, if nothing else. 3) Clarity is everything. 4) Keep it updated.
