Estate Planning

At Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP, we have a straightforward definition of estate planning that forms the basis of our approach:

"To leave what you want, to whom you want, the way you want, while saving every court cost, legal fee and tax dollar possible."

We are committed to helping our clients leave a lasting legacy. From our offices in Newport and Wakefield, Rhode Island, we create personalized estate plans designed to protect and preserve assets for generations to come. Our estate planning lawyers have more than 35 years of experience providing estate planning services to people, families and business owners in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.

Integrity From The Start

We begin with the premise that each client's estate, regardless of size, is important. Using our proprietary planning process, our services are custom-tailored to meet the needs, goals and values of each individual client. Whether we use basic wills or more complex trusts, our process provides our clients with the knowledge and information they need to make good decisions for themselves and their loved ones.

In a time of technological change and corporate mission statements, our approach to the practice of law remains simple: WE FOCUS ON SERVICE — WE DELIVER RESULTS.

There is no charge for your initial consultation, and the fees for most of our estate planning services are fixed in advance, so there are no surprises.
