About Bastion Estate Law

Why Are We Called Bastion Estate Law?

We want you to know “What’s in a Name” and why we have chosen the word “Bastion” as our principal focus.

Bastion Shape | Bastion Estate LawThe Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a bastion as:

  • A projecting part of a fortification
  • A fortified area or position
  • A stronghold

Medieval estate owners viewed bastions as integral components of defensive fortifications surrounding their estate. Bastions were critical for protecting the estate and preserving the people and assets held within the fortification. At Bastion Estate Law, we view the modern estate plan as an integral component to protecting an individual’s estate. While no longer protected with stone and mortar, a modern estate requires robust legal protection. Comprehensive planning and administration have taken the place of physical fortifications.
Along with asset accumulation and sound investment strategies, a comprehensive estate plan is crucial for you and your family’s future financial and personal wellbeing.  We take this responsibility seriously. It is what we do. It is not viewed as an “add-on” to our other practice areas.
