Welcome to the new Corliss Law Website!

Corliss Law is dedicated to serving the unique planning needs of the business owner and their families through thorough, carefully designed and implemented business and wealth preservation strategies and plans.  We work with you and your team of other advisors to organize your family’s legal, business, financial, tax, and philanthropic goals into a seamless unified plan and then we join with you in implementing that plan.

While we serve all families with the same enthusiasm and dedication, our founder has a special affinity with business owners and the problems they face.  That business affinity (i.e. the ability to see the world from your perspective) serves all our clients well, whether or not they are business owners.  It serves our business owner clients exceptionally well.

Our goal is to help you:
  • Increase your control-- over your assets, your business and your life;
  • Assure the continuance of your lifestyle and the protection of your assets;
  • Enable you to pass your legacy (your values, responsibility and work ethic) to your heirs;
  • Substantially reduce gift, estate, income and generation skipping taxes;
  • Manage and protect the value of your business interests; and
  • Keep your personal life free from publicity and the costs and delay of probate.

Our Approach

One size does not fit all.  Every business and every family is unique and deserves attention to their special needs.  We take the time with our customers to uncover or bring their goals into clear focus. We want to bring the same care and attention to our relationship with our customers that they bring to their businesses and families.  We are not for everyone and the first step is to determine whether we are a good fit for your business or family; whether we can provide long term value to you.  That is a mutual decision.  Once that decision is made and we determine the areas you want us to work with you on, we have a process to assist in uncovering your goals, identifying alternatives, designing a plan that is tailored to your individual needs and goals, and then putting in place and thereafter maintaining your plan.

We hope that you feel at ease when call to discuss your situation with us. We offer a 45 minute consultation at no charge to you.  Schedule your free Consultation to find out if we can help you.
