Mesa, Arizona, Law Firm

At Knollmiller & Arenofsky, LLP, we know that every individual or family has different estate planning needs. Today’s society, with couples and individuals living longer, blended families, domestic partners, and later child-rearing patterns, has added a complexity to our social fabric that makes estate planning essential. Our estate plans reflect the individuality of our clients and are tailored to the specific needs of the person, family, or couple. Nevertheless, we have found that there are components of every estate plan, listed below, that can be adapted to the special needs of each client. For more information about our approach to estate planning, contact our Mesa, Arizona, estate planning lawyers.
