After advising clients regarding wills and trusts for more than a decade, Melissa founded Inkwell to modernize the estate planning practice of law and make it more accessible to clients beyond the ultra-wealthy. Her goal is to offer all people the legal protections and security provided by a professionally prepared and customized legal plan in an affordable and convenient manner. She educates clients in not just the importance of having a legal plan, but also in understanding how each client’s plan works to meet that client’s needs and goals, and how to properly maintain a legal plan to adjust to all of the various milestones in life.
