What Our Customers Have to Say


The instructions were flawless: clearly detailed and easily comprehended. I especially liked the example that you included with each document. Very helpful. Also, I found that it was most convenient to be able to go back to your personal instructions (video) on occasion to be certain of my filling in the forms properly.

It was a deeply nourishing and fulfilling experience using Your Legacy Lives. Not only do my husband and I now have a comprehensive trust established, I had a profound experience in realizing what is important to me while I’m alive and where I want to put my energy and attention. Creating a trust helped me to “wake up” to the preciousness of life.

I first met Heather when my husband and I decided it was time we created a living trust. When my Father passed away in 2008, Heather gracefully guided us through the process of handling all the “stuff” that must be addressed, and insured that the maximum inheritance possible by current law could pass to us tax-free.
