INTRODUCING MARTY ELBERG
WE’LL HELP YOU MEET ALL OF YOUR ESTATE PLANNING NEEDS
Last month, The Whisler Law Firm announced that it’s teaming up with Martyn Elberg, Esq. to start providing estate planning services to a wider range of clients, and we’re excited to finally introduce Marty Elberg!
My enthusiasm for estate planning began in the classroom. Having entered law school at 35, I was one of the older students in most of my classes, and our trust, wills, and estates class had a tendency of putting most students to sleep. But it held my attention, and that’s thanks in part to my age at the time. As someone who had recently gone through a divorce and had a young child, it was intriguing to me that there were ways to guarantee that my child would be cared for in the ways that I wanted him cared for, even if something happened to me. This idea of “ruling from the grave” can often be a daunting and uncomfortable topic for some, but for me, it was so significant that I couldn’t ignore it.
I graduated from California Western School of Law in 2006, and that’s when my new wife and I moved back to my hometown of Eagle Grove, Iowa, to be closer to family and raise our boys with the Midwestern values we’d been taught. After being admitted to the Iowa bar, I opened an office to serve as a general practitioner for our small town because we needed a jack-of-all-trades. It was an enjoyable time in my life, and we successfully transitioned our boys into young men. But I was ready to dedicate myself to the type of law
I had loved for so long, so we moved to Florida and I began focusing almost solely on estate planning. I was admitted to the Florida bar in 2012, and my team members at my practice, Circle of Life Legal Services, have evolved into experts at comprehensive plans for family well-being.
I understand the fear of sitting down and planning for the inevitable. I know it can be hard to think about, both for yourself and for others. But estate plans are too important to be without, which is why my new of-counsel relationship with The Whisler Law Firm is such an exciting endeavor. Through and through, they are about putting people first, and that’s really what estate planning is all about too. We pride ourselves on our ability to truly listen to our clients and to translate their vision into estate plans that meet their desires and expectations. With every new client, I always appreciate the unique composition of each family and know firsthand that thoughtful, creative, and customized planning can maximize financial security and the harmony that results from it.
If you want to leave a legacy behind that you feel proud of and secure in, our expertise in family protection, wealth preservation, values-based planning for couples, planning strategies for unmarried couples or divorced individuals, and all aspects of estate administration will help you achieve just that. Whether you’re married or single, have a traditional family or a blended one, are just starting out, or may now be looking back on a life well-lived, The Whisler Law Firm will help you craft a plan to achieve your goals for your loved ones for years to come. Our goal is always to help you preserve your most cherished family needs and values.
I’m so honored and excited to be a part of this team, and I can’t wait to meet you and help you lay down the plans you need for yourself and your loved ones.
