Meet Attorney Iffy Ibekwe

Every woman is worthy of an impactful legacy.

Hello! We are Ibekwe (ee-beck-way) Law, but you can call us your lawyers gone right. (No stuffy office desks, old leather smell, and boring conversation here. ) We activate intentional women so they can take agency over their lives and build impactful legacies.

LET US ASK YOU…

Do you want to make sure that even your children’s children can buy their first (and second) homes?

Do you want them to be able to go to Disney every single year for eternity?

Do you want to make sure the causes and changes you believe in can carry out their work, no matter what?

ONE LAST QUESTION…

Do you always want to have a voice in decisions that affect you?

We thought so! That’s why we make setting up a will as easy as deciding what’s for dinner. We know that sometimes, it gets put on the backburner for far too long because “if you talk about it, it’ll happen.” (Pst, that’s 100% not accurate.)

Our process focuses on what you have today, so tomorrow is how you want it. We want you to walk away feeling relieved, reassured, and legit!

We understand the thought of estate planning can feel overwhelmingly stressful. We’re here to say that it doesn’t have to be. In fact, getting your assets together is the complete opposite! It ensures that no matter what, there will be no argument, there will be no confusion, and your choices will be adhered to. It’s literally digging legal teeth into your decision, so no one else will have to make it. It’s the ultimate power move. In case you’re wondering, that also includes keeping the power in your own hands rather than letting the state decide.

THERE ARE ENOUGH OLD WHITE DUDES MAKING DECISIONS ABOUT YOUR LIFE. DON’T ADD ONE MORE!

It’s time to have the people in your corner who understand your unique position and desires. Because what’s good for one of us is good for all of us.

Client Love

We took care of our estate planning on Valentine’s Day (yay!) and felt at ease and well informed throughout the entire process. I highly recommend that you contact Iffy for your estate planning needs. Not only is she professional and knowledgeable, she made us feel welcomed and cared for. GRISELDA C.

Iffy is knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. She was able to explain complicated estate planning concepts to help the common person make important life decisions. She gently guided us through the process and was very professional and kind. I would recommend her to anyone. We especially appreciated her attention to detail and genuine concern for educating folks on how to properly be prepared for the unexpected. AMY M.

ALL RIGHT, LADIES, LET’S GET IN LEGAL FORMATION!

We have helped more than 400 women establish their will, trust, and other legal documents to set themselves and their loved ones up for generations of success! With every woman who walks through our doors to take action on the legacy they are living now, we are even more inspired to boldly spread the message of effective estate planning.

CLIENT CASE STUDY

One of our clients was a single mom with an ex-husband who battles substance abuse issues. Her biggest fear (and cause of frequent late-night anxiety attacks) was worrying about what would happen to her kids if something were to happen to her. She certainly did not want them (or her hard-earned dollars) to end up in the hands of her unstable ex!

We were so honored to help this mama set up a will and trust to ensure that her kids had special people to care for them and the financial resources to provide for them. We also set up a way for her to select key family members to take care of her if something were to happen.

Encouraging women with practical tools is our passionate calling. Our combined legal know-how ensures that everything is done effectively and thoroughly. In a few simple steps, we can give a woman a sense of peace knowing that she’s providing the best for her loved ones—no matter what!

HERE’S THE DEAL

we should work together if:

Z

You are not buying the lie that inheritance and property ownership are only for Chad.

Z

You want to offer your loved ones a distinct advantage that only select families have historically had access to.

Z
