Your Kids Protection Plan
Are you a parent of minor children? You may be part of the 69% of parents who do not have documentation in place for your kids in the event of an emergency. At 20West Legal, we prepare a full package of documents to ensure your children are taken care of by the people you want, in the way that you want. Our plans include instructions to caregivers, Temporary Guardian Appointment, Permanent Guardian Appointments, Child Health Care Proxies, Powers of Attorney for your minors and more.
Undecided about who to name for your child’s guardian? No problem, it’s quite common for parents to be a little uneasy about estate planning. Many of our happiest clients started just where you are right now. Many reported that after they read the best-selling book on estate planning for families, Wear Clean Underwear (I know, it's a funny name, right?), they felt more at ease, educated and informed. I would love to send you a copy of this book for free, as my gift to you.

“Erica helped our family with our will and estate planning documents. She is very flexible and took the time to understand our situation and needs. She consulted a few accountants to make sure that our estate planning gives us the best tax option. I also appreciate that she explained legal terms in a very friendly way so that we understand what is needed and we have all the documents to protect our family. I highly recommend Erica! She is also a pleasure to work with. “ - FZ, Sudbury, Massachusetts
“Erica dispels all the myths and jokes and fears surrounding what it's like to engage a lawyer. She was intelligent, succinct and efficient. Her communication skills are exemplary and while I have met and worked with lawyers that bill by 5 minute increments, she is generous with her time and unflaggingly loyal and dedicated to assisting me in achieving an end result. Thanks Erica, we so appreciate your time and efforts.” - TC, California
“As a licensed professional with a private practice and as a Mom, I give Erica Endyke at 20West Legal my highest recommendation! Initially she helped us get the legal documents in place for our daughter starting college and what we needed as a family to be able to help our 18 year old daughter as needed.
Erica has a great way of distilling the law down into understandable language and what it all means for each one of us in the family. When you meet with Erica, what comes through is that she really cares and she wants you to be informed and understand the law so you can decide what is best to do. Erica also really listens to your questions and what you need and then in a brilliant way she makes the steps understandable and simple. I’m grateful to have Erica practice in Sudbury as she provides all the legal services we need as a family. “ - MS, Sudbury, Massachusetts
