The Burch Law Difference

Why We Do What We Do

We believe who you are and what you mean to the ones you'll leave behind matters. What your family and loved ones will go through when you’re gone matters. Other firms do this planning because they think Wills, trusts, and estate planning is important. We do this work because we believe YOU are important. They focus on what you have; we focus on who you are.

On almost a daily basis, we see the pain, anguish, and sadness in the faces of our clients who have lost a loved one. They tell us how they are paralyzed with grief and overwhelmed with what to do. So yes, getting a proper estate plan in place is about legal documents, preserving wealth, deciding how to distribute assets, and the rest of what you typically hear.

While others may view estate planning as a mere legal necessity,

we see it as a profound responsibility to honor your life and the lives of those you cherish.

But we believe, more importantly, this is about showing your loved ones they matter, you see them, and you’re going to do all you can, you will spend what it takes to make sure your plan will WORK, to help relieve that burden – to provide a guide and to communicate your wishes and empower them to act on them.

To do this, to achieve this for your family, it’s not about doing ANYTHING…it’s about doing it RIGHT. If you want to do it right, to ease the cost, the time delay, and grief, it’s not going to be do-it-yourself forms, legal programs, and it’s not cut-rate law firms. Is that what you want to tell your loved ones that that’s all they meant to you? That is how you valued them? To do the bare minimum?

For us, doing it right means more than just checking boxes. It's about commitment, attention to detail, and a deep understanding of your unique story. We reject the notion of one-size-fits-all solutions. Your life is unique, and your estate plan should reflect that uniqueness.

Here’s another way to think of it: Estate planning is often called “legacy planning.” Why? Well, one of the definitions of “legacy” is: “an amount of money or property left to someone in a Will.” And that’s how most firms think of it. But another definition, our preferred definition, of “legacy” is “the long-lasting impact of particular events and actions that took place in the past, or of a person’s life.” Now YOUR legacy could either be the long-lasting impact of not creating a proper estate plan…or it could be the long-lasting impact of your life. When you create an estate plan, and you do it RIGHT, then your family will be able to focus on the story of your life and NOT the impact of you leaving a mess. And your story is your legacy. At Burch Law, that is our focus and our belief is that EVERYONE from all walks of life deserve the dignity of a plan that will tell their story and honor their legacy.
