Jaime counsels individuals, families, and small to medium-sized business owners in personal estate planning and business succession planning matters. She also counsels business owners as to the most suited business formational structure and governance. Jaime believes each client is unique and develops a plan based on the individual’s goals and circumstances. She has worked with clients who are just starting out up to well-established individuals and businesses with net worth into the tens of millions. Before joining Stock Legal, Jaime worked in firms concentrating in estate and business succession planning in both Clayton and St. Louis, as well as in Beverly Hills, California.
Stock Legal uses a unique process that involves much more than just designing estate plans and sending clients on their way. One of the most important parts of the estate planning process is transferring ownership of a client’s assets. This is as essential to the success of an estate plan as the plan itself. As such, the Stock Legal process is highly unique in that it also undertakes retitling and changing ownership of assets to be sure that your property and beneficiaries are consistent with your estate plan. Our estate plans are written in plain English and completed with the funding of your assets at an incredibly competitive rate.
