Estate Planning

About this service:

Individuals and Families

Discussing and developing an estate plan can be very uncomfortable. As a result, most individuals and families put it off until a tragedy is looming or often, when it is too late. However, whether or not you realize it, you already have an estate plan – it is called Intestate Succession. If you die without a will, the state in which you live will decide how to administer and divide your property. The same applies if you become incapacitated. The best way to deal with these difficult times is to develop a plan.

We assist individuals and families but always with our third eye towards creative assets that you may own, or have rights to.


Our mission at Creative Genius Law is to help you use your creative capital to impact your community, build wealth, and preserve your legacy. One way to do that is by passing wealth down from generation to generation through effective estate planning.

How many times have you heard of a creator passing without a legacy plan for their creative works or other assets? As attorneys for the creative industries, our estate planning counsel is offered through a unique lens combining our intellectual property, new media and digital asset succession planning expertise with traditional estate planning know-how. Seriously, where else will you have the combined expertise of an arts and entertainment attorney with a part-time Wills, Trusts and Estates, American University law professor all under one non-stuffy roof? We get the value your creative work just as much as those other assets.
