What is the background of the Law Offices of Shannon P. McNulty? When did it start, and how has it evolved since then?
After working for a large law firm for several years, I decided that corporate life wasn’t a good fit for me. I started my own estate planning practice about four years ago and loved working with young families. Realizing that there was a significant need for high-quality estate planning services for parents with young children, I gradually developed a niche practice that catered to the needs of young families. Today, while most estate planning firms focus on retirees and older clients, about 90% of my clients are parents with young children.
Through my work with these clients, I realized that, in addition to a need for specialized legal services, parents needed a resource to learn about and keep current on important legal and financial planning issues concerning their family. This year, I launched Savvy-Parents.com, an online resource that provides unbiased information about legal and financial issues and empowers parents to make smart decisions for their families. We provide free reports, a newsletter, and live webinars about various topics, including college savings, wills and trusts, life insurance, choosing a financial advisor, buying a home, and work-life balance.
What are the most popular and/or newest services from the Law Offices of Shannon P. McNulty?
The services that I provide are completely customized to the needs of individual clients. Some clients have very complex international and estate tax issues, while others need a simple will. I meet with each client and discuss their needs to determine what type of estate plan is appropriate for their family.
What sets the Law Offices of Shannon P. McNulty from the other law practices?
We are the only law firm in New York that focuses specifically on estate planning for parents with young children. We are hyper-specialized. We practice only estate planning and primarily serve young families. This allows us to home in on the unique needs of parents and provide a superior client experience. Our services to clients go above and beyond what is typically provided by a large firm, and we provide those services at an affordable fee.
What should parent expect to see from the Law Offices of Shannon P. McNulty at the New York Baby Show?
We will be handing out information, answering questions, and allowing parents to sign up for a free one-hour Legal Planning Session for their family – a service for which I normally charge $325.00. I will also be providing information on Savvy-Parents.com and our upcoming events.
