Hi, my name is Ralph, founding member of this website’s company, Advocate Estate & Fiduciary, LLC (AEF). Most attorneys I’ve worked with have a commonality in being deeply passionate about helping clients and their community.  Seems it is why many became attorneys to begin with – to make a difference.

My company shares a similar passion.  Having personally gone through the experience of handling the final affairs of someone I lost and having worked as an estate planning paralegal and probate case manager for years, Advocate Estate & Fiduciary LLC (AEF) exists to make life simpler and easier for spouses, families, personal representatives and attorneys.

It is truly tragic when another deals with loss of a loved one especially when it can become overwhelming as they also learn about and take on estate settlement responsibilities too.  At such a time, family should be able to focus mainly on their grief and healing.  AEF steps in to help with the “busywork” so they can.  At the same time, we take some of the work load off the attending law firm and elevate their client’s experience with a compassionate and professional demeanor.  Additionally, AEF sponsors FREE community workshops held to educate and motivate our community to get things done now.

If you share similar passion for your clients and our community, we’d like you to consider partnering with us to spread the word about the wisdom of getting legal and business affairs in order now to lessen the burden on others later.




In addition to having a mutual passion for our clients, at the end of the day, we still have to pay bills too, so a big part of our partnership also includes effort and activities to promote more business for both of us. 

AEF can get your name in front of more potential new clients and help build stronger client relationships for you.  You can help us get our information out to your clients and join with us to educate and motivate our community.

THE AEF FAMILY GUIDE is a tool to organize necessary and important information for an estate, both BEFORE and AFTER death.  In a guide and workbook format, it provides over 150 pages of forms (for recording important information) and guidance on select topics (for the PR to better understand processes and how to get things done). 

It is a great help in making things simpler and easier for spouses, families, personal representatives, even attorneys.  And the guide costs less than 1/2 hour of a typical attorney’s time.  Very affordable and useful. 

Your firm’s name will also be included in each guide sold through your office at no additional charge.



COWBOY CARD.  A promo card we would ask you to give to your clients with their executed documents promoting the AEF Family Guide as the next step in organizing the rest of the information which will be needed later in addition to the legal documents.
