Founding principles
Superior Service
Our Clients – the Legacy Family – get the benefit of the best service ratio in the industry – which means our team of experienced professionals can focus on fewer clients. This allows us to go the extra distance for each of them. We interview long term care homes with our clients’ loved-ones, sort through papers and photographs when cleaning out an estate home and visit regularly with trust beneficiaries. We have the people, resources and aspiration to go beyond what is typically expected.
Real Flexibility
Our service offerings are always customized to our clients’ specific needs, not based on a one-size-fits-all template. We do not have built-in rigidity in our business practices or procedures. We respond rapidly and adapt to each situation as required. We also easily accommodate clients who want to utilize outside professionals in conjunction with our services.
True Continuity
We are federally regulated by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions, have a dedicated team of practitioners, and operate with a strong family component. The people you meet and work with today will be the same people you will work with throughout, as well as the ones your family and beneficiaries will deal with in the future.
"No two people have the same aspirations, the same dreams or the same legacy. Our aim is to recognize that each time we serve you."
-James B. Love, Founder
