Always Free Initial Consultations

Our singular focus is to provide individually-tailored legal advice that allows for a truly personal experience. We want to be your partner in life and business.

Let's work together.

We created our practice with you in mind.

We created a "client-first" practice. What does this mean exactly? To us, "client-first" means doing more than putting our clients' needs at the forefront of our business. That should be a given. What we've done is go "above and beyond" to create a simple, and straightforward experience for our clients. We've also cut out all the legalese wherever possible, along with the uppity suits of a traditional law firm and replaced them with simplicity, communication and transparency.

To attain our principle of simplicity, we set out a goal to streamline the estate planning and business representation processes for clients because we know getting truly valuable advice is not always enjoyable. It can feel confusing, tedious and never-ending. By streamlining estate panning and business representation, we are able to deliver a truly "client-first" practice. Our simple three-step process consists of a Strategy Session, Design Meeting and Signing Meeting. That's it.

...delivering a uniquely positive and streamlined planning experience you will not find anywhere else.
— The Schlau|Rogers Team

In addition to simplicity, we designed our practice in a way that ensures open lines of communication between attorney and client. One way we've achieved this goal is by creating a virtual platform, which eliminates the unnecessary overhead of a traditional law firm, and ensures a cost-effective and efficient solution for you.

Perhaps more importantly, it allows us to spend most of our time effecting your individually-tailored estate plan and business representation to achieve your goals. We believe communication between attorney and client is key to creating true value. The more time you spend going to and from meetings, waiting for a time that you can actually meet or waiting for the mailman to deliver a bill or the latest revision of your documents, the less time you're spending with your attorney.

At Schlau|Rogers, everything can be taken care of online: all meetings, chats, questions, document reviews, payments, etc. Our virtual platform allows us to stay in touch and focus our efforts on delivering the highest quality representation possible, and our clients seem to like it: we're constantly using online applications like Drift, Zoom and Google Hangouts to improve efficiency and increase availability.

Our virtual platform has also generated a system of transparency. The entire process will be outlined for you from the moment you retain our firm, so there are no surprises. During our simple, three-step process, we're always available. If questions arise, you can get answers as we go through safe and secure messaging. The goal here is to ensure you understand what is happening and why it's happening. We think this allows us to deliver a uniquely positive and streamlined experience you will not find anywhere else.
