Listen First. Solve Second. Care Always.

Rebecca’s Story

You can probably relate to our founder Rebecca’s experience. She hadn’t started law school at the time her grandfather got ready to do his will. It was a big occasion. He got dressed up in what he called his “funeral suit,” a navy pinstripe that he wore to weddings, funerals and planned to be buried in. Rebecca, her grandfather and her mother went to a downtown Minneapolis fancy lawyer’s office. They felt intimidated. They had too much lawyer for too few assets, but didn’t know that. They felt embarrassed, and Rebecca remembers her grandfather apologizing for taking this fancy lawyer’s time for his little farm and bank account. 

Nobody should feel that way. 

Planning for life events isn’t always easy. We want to be the ones who listen, understand and make you feel wanted and welcome.

Listening & Strategy Session

(1 hour with attorney @ $125)

At a one-hour Listening & Strategy Session, we take the time to listen, to get to know you, to understand your situation, and to recognize your goals. With that foundation in place, we then formulate a customized strategy to help you reach those goals. Your tailored solution will include an explanation of the right legal tools for you and the reasons why we recommend them. You’ll leave our Listening & Strategy Session with your questions answered, a better understanding of your legal situation, and a real strategy for reaching your goals.

Five Areas Of Focus

Estate Planning
Proper estate planning today can prove beneficial down the road for you, your family, and the care of your property. Wills, trusts, pet trusts, medical assistance advance planning, and other tools help create peace of mind.
Pet Trusts
More of us are planning around the furry or feathered family we love. A pet trust protects not just the pets you have today, but whatever pet you own at the time you pass. We know what questions to ask about your pets – whether they are birds, cats, dogs, or horses – to create a pet trust that protects your furry or feathered companions.
Probate And Trust Administration
In difficult family times, you’ll want a trusted partner to help you administer or manage your loved one’s estate. Whether your loved one had a will or a trust (or had neither), we are here to guide and support you in dealing with the many duties involved after a loved one passes.
Small Business
We handle small business law because we’ve run businesses and we know the unique challenges faced by small business owners. We help people grow their dreams and ensure their futures.
Whether horses are a business or hobby, rb LEGAL, LLC, has the experience needed to help you with the equine industry’s myriad issues and concerns. You need an attorney with specialized knowledge of horses and the law. You need an equine attorney.
