Minnesota and Florida Estate Planning, Elder Law, and Asset Protection

You may have a new or growing family, or maybe you're taking steps toward starting a small business. Perhaps you are retired and finally have the free time you've been waiting for. It's an exciting time, but there are probably a lot of "what if's" running through your mind.

  • "If something ever happened to me, would my kids be in good hands with enough money to live comfortably?"
  • "Is a will the best option? I keep hearing about trusts. What are the differences and which one would be better for my family and me?"
  • "Are there ways I can set up my company so I don't pay any more taxes than I have to?"
  • "How can I best protect my home, my retirement, and my other assets?"

What Makes Us Different

Roulet Law is not your typical law firm. Attorney Chuck Roulet graduated first in his class in the area of Estates and Trusts and did the big law firm thing, working in Washington, DC, and Minneapolis. He noticed that many law firms were not adequately serving the needs of families and small businesses.

The deficiencies he saw in the law firm plans were leaving clients and their children at risk: making it more complicated and expensive to pass on their inheritance, risking that their children would receive their inheritance unprotected, exposing them to the possibility that their children could be raised by people they never intended, and leaving them without the authority to make critical medical decisions (Link to Warning Report) for loved ones. He saw how giving more careful attention to each client's business plans could help save taxes and offer better protection.

Chuck went on to establish his own law firm, creating an environment where he could incorporate his detailed knowledge of estate planning, asset protection, and Minnesota business law to create estate plans that better protected his clients and their families, and business solutions that better suited the needs of small businesses.

When you work with Chuck at Roulet Law, you won't have to worry about the meter running while you make life-changing decisions. Chuck wants to be sure that your plans address your unique needs and goals and he doesn't want you to have to worry about hourly rates. You'll know what things cost from the very beginning with flat-fee, value-based billing, and he sets out several options so his clients can select the plan and fee that is right for them.
