  • Grateful for Thoroughness and Professionalism

    “My wife and I both knew we needed to update our wills, power of attorney information, and medical directive instructions. Fortunately for us, I was able to hear one of your presentations on estate planning ...the options you discussed helped me decide that we should be more proactive. Your process to develop the best estate planning strategy for us seemed straightforward and relatively uncomplicated. I thank you for taking the necessary time to answer the myriad of questions I constantly had. The thoroughness of your work, coupled with the professionalism you and your staff demonstrated, made us feel confident in your professional services. We both developed a very comfortable feeling working with you and your staff. You most graciously walked us through the various intricacies and options to best help us plan for protecting ourselves now and in the future. Thank you, Stephen and Aspen Legacy Planning.”

  • Highly Recommend Aspen Legacy Planning

    “I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen and Lisa Wesolick at a meeting shortly after moving to Rapid City with my husband. We had created a Living Trust in another state and knew we needed to update to meet South Dakota requirements. I approached Stephen after the meeting, obtained his business card and we made the appointment. Stephen and Lisa could not have made us more comfortable in their office. They and their staff are very friendly, kind, helpful, and knowledgeable in what they do. They are never too busy to take a call or address any concern. I would highly recommend the Aspen Legacy Planning to anyone who needs to establish a trust and will.”
