Here are some of the top reasons our clients decided to get their Estate Plans in order (or brought up to date):

  • Protect and provide financial security for their loved ones
  • Want to avoid confusion about their wishes
  • They seek peace of mind
  • Make things easy for their loved ones and not leave them with a burden
  • Avoid and deter family conflict
  • Avoid probate and the unnecessary expenses and time delays that ensue
  • Easy resolution of one's affairs after death
  • Simplify their succession plan
  • Minimize taxes and other expenses
  • Protect and provide for family members who are special needs or have a mental illness
  • Recently moved to Florida and ensuring one's existing plan will be honored here
  • Current health issues or concerns about potential health issues (like COVID-19)
  • Recent death of a friend, colleague, or family member
  • Wants to be prepared and protect themselves as they age

So why do so many of us put off planning our affairs:

  • Procrastination
  • Worries over the cost
  • Too busy
  • Believing we don't have enough assets to make planning worthwhile
  • Feeling overwhelmed and not knowing how to get started
  • Don't want to think about death!

At My Pink Lawyer®, we make planning your affairs as simple as possible. We offer:

  • Variety of initial consultation options via phone, web conference, or in office appointments both in downtown Pensacola and in Gulf Breeze proper
  • No obligation, flat fee initial consultations (only $197 for 1 1/2 hour consultations)
  • Flat, no surprise planning fees quoted at your initial consultation
  • No pushy "sales people". We make specific recommendations based on your situation and never try to "sell" you on services you don't need.
  • All of our plans are personally crafted for each client; no cookie cutter plans here!
  • Our staff is friendly and welcoming.
  • Our estate planning process is organized and timely. You will always know what to expect next.

If you've never had a formal written Estate Plan personally crafted for you by My Pink Lawyer®, I dare you to check us out. We offer free 10 minute exploratory calls to see if we might be a good fit for one another. We can then schedule your more formal initial estate planning consultation from there.


If you are a past estate planning client of ours, it may be time for a review meeting (recommended every 3-5 years). We offer $97 one-hour review consultations. Or you can take advantage of our current estate planning membership program where all consultations are FREE!


Regardless, we love hearing from you!
