Detail-oriented, thoughtful and keenly analytical, Michelle Vesole takes great pride in crafting highly personalized estate plans for her clients. Michelle understands that making difficult decisions, such as choosing whom to trust to care for their finances, healthcare and children upon incapacity or death, is critical and often very personal for her clients. Michelle actively seeks to put her clients at ease by making the estate planning process as straightforward and efficient as possible.
One of Michelle’s greatest strengths is communicating clearly and concisely the complex legal terminology used in estate and trust planning and administration. During the process she stays in regular touch with her clients, providing updates, answering questions, remaining flexible as thinking evolves or changes and ensuring their needs are being met.
Michelle stays current in legal changes and new trends in wealth preservation, succession planning, charitable gift planning, tax and other aspects of estates and trusts law, to ensure she brings her clients the benefit of her up-to-date knowledge of the ever-evolving laws and planning techniques in this area.
