ABOUT OUR FIRM, LARA SASS & ASSOCIATES, PLLC

Lara Sass & Associates, PLLC, a preeminent law firm specializing in trusts and estates law, launched this site in order to address the need for basic estate planning documents to be expertly prepared by experienced attorneys during the coronavirus pandemic in a fast and affordable manner.  We developed a way to allow clients without complex needs to remotely create estate plans in order to protect their loved ones, their assets and themselves.

We understand that the estate planning process is not about clients benefiting themselves; it is about the family members and loved ones who will be left behind when something happens.  Estate planning is truly a client's gift to their children and/or other loved ones so that they can have the best transition possible upon the client's possible incapacity and inevitable death.  It is for this reason that we work tirelessly to provide all of our clients with thorough and well-thought-out estate plans.  Our goal is to provide every client with peace of mind and every client's family with the long-term security that they deserve.
