"Quality Estate Planning at Discounted Rates"
The law firm prides itself on keeping rates reasonable for its clients.
The typical range of fees for an entire estate plan for a husband and wife is between $500 and $2500, depending upon the degree of complexity involved. Fees for single clients will normally be lower, and of course in more complex situations fees will be higher.
Where appropriate, the law firm also offers free initial consultations and two all-inclusive estate plan packages: a Will Package priced at $500 for an individual or $600 for a married couple, and a Trust Package priced at $850 for an individual or $1150 for a married couple. Both packages will include living wills, healthcare declarations, financial powers of attorney and a beneficiary deed to the client's home. The Trust Package, in addition to revocable trusts, will also include pour-over wills, as well as special documents which avoid probate on the clients' home contents and other non-titled tangible personal property, including jewelry. Please call for details.
All fees are quoted up front, and for standard estate plans clients pay only the lower of a fixed ceiling or the law firm's normal billing rates.
The firm offers deferred payment plans, where appropriate, and credit card payments are also permitted.
The firm is distinctive in that it never charges clients for follow-up phone calls and emails making sure the clients' trust is properly funded, including working with the clients' financial advisors.
*AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY: Mention this website for an additional 25% discount off of the law firm's already low billing rates - for non-fixed fee work only.
**Note that if you work for a company in the St. Louis or Metro East area, the company may offer an optional legal plan as part of your employment package, including plans such as Hyatt/Metlaw or ARAG. So be sure to check for this, as Blase & Associates, LLC is a participant in most of these plans, thus allowing you to have your entire estate plan prepared at a fraction of the normal cost!

"Jim Blase and his associates have helped us with the challenging task of establishing our living trusts. It is a very complex and tedious process which they guided us through by listening carefully to what we intended our legacy to be and then constructing our trusts to reflect those values. They clarified the intricacies of estate planning for us and helped us to create trusts that will protect our assets for future generations of our family as well as safeguard the legacy we hope to leave to benefit our community.
