Estate Planning with Stephen Wesolick
The Wesolick Law Firm focuses on estate and business planning, probate, trust administration and elder law in western South Dakota. We provide the highest-quality professional resources, such as assistance with living trusts, wills, business and ranch succession planning, asset protection, probate, trust administration, Medicaid planning, powers of attorney, living wills, irrevocable trusts, family limited partnerships, special needs planning, charitable giving, and more.
Through our affiliation with WealthCounsel® and ElderCounsel® , we continue to expand our capabilities and services to meet the demands of a complex and changing estate planning and elder-law world. Our experience has shown us that what was a solution yesterday may no longer be adequate to fully protect our clients today.
I have worked hard to ensure that our firm is different than most because we have a passion for this work and feel there is a gap in most families’ plans. Other firms mainly address “after death” issues, leaving families vulnerable when the unexpected happens “during life.” I know it is a great privilege to help families effectively plan their estate and leave a meaningful legacy. I realize that when clients come to us they entrust us with their families, fortunes and futures, and I take that responsibility very seriously. By “fortune” I mean that which is most precious to you, whether it’s your family, business, wealth, values, memories or any other good fortune.
