Benefits of Working With a Boutique Estate Planning Law Firm

No offense to the Texans out there, but bigger is not always better. In the legal world, that is particularly true when it comes to estate planning. While some practice areas benefit from working with major law firms (think corporate mergers and acquisitions), the impersonal trappings of BigLaw are not necessarily well-suited to the intimate nature of estate planning. In response, a cottage industry of boutique estate planning law firms has flourished across the nation. What these smaller firms lack in size, they tend to make up for in experience, producing several key benefits.

What are those benefits? Keep reading to learn why working with a boutique estate planning law firm is a great way to protect your loved ones and prepare for the future.

What is a Boutique Estate Planning Law Firm?

Put simply, a boutique estate planning law firm is about specialization. Unlike large law firms which handle myriad practice areas including everything from civil litigation to immigration law to personal injury and medical malpractice, boutique estate planning law firms like the Law Office of Tyler R. Barrett, P.L.L.C. work 24/7 helping clients leave a legacy via the use of wills and trusts. Unlike bigger firms, boutique estate planners are more discretionary about who they take on as clients. Oftentimes, that means turning down a potentially lucrative payday from clients with other legal needs. The result is an individualized approach that delivers the best possible service to each client.
