At Opelon LLP we look for ways to give back to those who have given so much to us.

That is why we started Protecting Those Who Protect (PTWP).

Prior to our initial meeting, we will send you our Estate Planning Intake questionnaire and a list of documents for you to bring.

We request that you bring the completed intake along with all supporting documents to your first meeting. If you have any questions prior to your initial meeting please feel free to contact our office.

The entire process will take 3 to 4 weeks. At your initial meeting, we will schedule a follow-up meeting along with your signing meeting.

We take on one pro-bono (free) estate planning client at a time and work hard to keep our schedule so that we can complete your estate plan and help the next first responder.

We see the sacrifices that first responders make to keep us safe.

We also understand that estate planning can be cost-prohibitive for those on a fixed government salary.

We want to make sure that the families of those who protect us, are protected.

Please contact us through the form on this page and someone will reach back out to you.
