You've taken a great first step in protecting yourself, your family, and your assets just by being here.
Being prepared for one's eventual death or incapacity is crucial.
One or the other will definitely happen. It's just a matter of when.
The advance planning you do today can mean the difference between leaving a legacy of love and caring for your family or untold trouble.
Hi, I’m Keoni Souza.
I help busy families protect everyone and everything they love while keeping them out of court and conflict upon incapacity or death.
In 2017, I quit my law firm job and opened my own law firm where I could shake up traditional estate planning -- which I realized was really designed for the very elderly who were nearing death -- by providing services aimed at helping families that are still growing and still striving for success.
Why estate planning?
My mom became suddenly incapacitated following a sudden heart attack and stroke at the age of 52 without having a plan. This resulted in years of stress, expense, and heartache that could have been avoided with proper planning.
My passion is estate planning because I want to help other families avoid the devastation that results from unexpected incapacity or death when no plan is in place.
Many families wait until it’s too late.
So, I’ve made my services as convenient and easy as possible to encourage families to stop putting off this important planning. For example, meetings are conducted online so you can plan from the comfort of your home instead of sitting in traffic to get to my office.
I provide planning and protection for your entire family beyond traditional estate planning:
I close the protection gap left by traditional estate plans that leave children at risk with my protection plan designed especially for kids to ensure they are never taken into the care of strangers (i.e., Child Welfare Services, Foster Care) if you get into a car accident or other emergency situation;
I can ensure your children's inheritance is protected from predators, creditors, divorces, and lawsuits;
I make it possible for you to pass on more than just your money including your intangible assets such as your stories, experiences, and values — the things most often lost by traditional estate planning;
I proactively help you keep your plan current with changes in your life, assets, and the law by offering a complimentary plan review every 3 years; and
I support and guide you throughout your life so that when something happens to you, your loved ones have someone they know and trust to turn to for help.
I have a 5-star client satisfaction rating on both Google and Facebook from clients who love my convenient and comprehensive service.
I invite you to join the many Hawaii families that I’ve helped to achieve the true peace of mind that comes with a well-prepared and well-supported plan.
