The Life & Legacy Planning you and your family deserve.

Why do you need estate planning?

Don't Leave a Mess.

Will or Trust or ? What do you really need to keep your family out of court and out of conflict when something happens to you? We'll look at your family dynamics, and your assets, to ensure you understand what the state’s plan is for you, and then help you create a plan that is the right plan for you, at the right budget, to achieve your desired outcomes for yourself and the people you love.

Protect Who ( and What) Matters.

Don’t fail your loved ones. Even if you've created a plan already, it may not work when your family needs it. Estate plans, even with the very best documents, fail when they are not well-counseled, not updated and when your assets are not owned in the right way.  Your family deserves more.

Have Financial Peace of Mind.

It doesn’t matter how much money you have. Estate planning is simply about attending to the inevitable, and bravely facing the end, in service to the best possible legal and financial choices throughout life. Our heart-centered counseling process ensures you make the right choices for yourself, and the people you love.

About John Terpin,

Attorney at Law

I’m here to help your family stay out of court and conflict in the event of your death or disability. Welcome.

I'm John Terpin . I’m currently in training to become a Personal Family Lawyer®, which helps me serve you with a counseling methodology for making decisions about your estate planning that ensures you’ll have a plan that works, when your family needs it. Because otherwise, why plan? 

Together, we’ll  look at your family dynamics, inventory your assets (and even possibly help you see you have more than you think you do), and choose the right plan for you and the people you love, at your budget, based on your unique circumstances.

By planning for  life and death in this way, and getting clear on your legal and financial reality, you’ll make choices with a clarity that may have eluded you until now. About life. And Legacy. And what really matters.

We call it Life & Legacy Planning because we don’t just help you choose between a will or trust (though we do that), but empower you to take control of your life, clarify your aspirations, and leave a lasting impact that aligns with your values and goals.

Most importantly, you will have the assurance of knowing your loved ones won’t be left with a mess, and that they will be able to make aligned decisions for you, when needed.

I’m here to be your trusted advisor who helps you make the very best personal, financial, and legal decisions for your family throughout your lifetime. And I will be there for your loved ones when you can’t be, supporting the people you love  during a time that could be the most impactful of their lives.

As your future Personal Family Lawyer®, I’d love to start helping you plan for  the people you love and everything else you care about today.

I look forward to meeting you!

What are John’s Clients Saying?

John has been my attorney for years and years now. My estate has changed and developed and grown, and even shrunk due to black swans that occur. John has been at help as an advisor, as a professional liaison and I could not recommend him more. I’m not an easy person to deal with, but John is. And that has worked out great. Thank you, John Terpin.

- Mike D. (Bremerton, WA)

The first time I met with John Terpin, I had no idea what I needed to do legally to pursue my divorce and assure that everything was covered for the well being of my child. Even the mention of paperwork left me feeling frazzled and overwhelmed. I was immediately put at ease by John's friendly and relaxed attitude as he thoroughly and easily explained the process and went over the paperwork with me in ways I could understand. I actually found myself having a pleasant time in a situation that could have otherwise been traumatic and heartbreaking.

- Bree R. (Seattle, WA)

John has helped me on many occasions. He is always extremely professional, available and goes the "extra mile" to ensure that I am comfortable, informed and at ease regardless of the complexity of the situation. I highly recommend him.

- Christopher T. (Seattle, WA)

There’s no better time than today.

We’ll make it easy and affordable for you to do the right thing for yourself, and the people you love. Our processes and systems are all designed to educate you, help you choose the right legal and financial strategies, and then execute on those strategies, especially when you are really busy and life is full.
