HERE’S WHY WE DO THIS WORK!
i created ibekwe law, pllc when i realized that so many intentional women desired a down-to-earth and knowledgeable lawyer (like me!) to set up a will, trust, or other legal documents and create an impactful legacy.
If you are one of these women, I want to give you a solution to this common problem. Here’s how estate planning has positively impacted my own life.
MY MOM WAS THE CATALYST FOR CHANGE IN THE TRAJECTORY OF OUR FAMILY.
WILLS AND TRUSTS AREN’T JUST FOR CHAD.
Getting a Texas or Arkansas will and other important estate planning documents can be straightforward. (And yes, this includes if you’re living somewhere else, too! As long as you’re domiciled in either state, we are the team for you.) At Ibekwe Law, PLLC, we offer a flat-fee package of legal services for singles and couples who want to start with securing their legacies.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE THE EXPERT
That’s what we’re here for! So you can go ahead and say goodbye to your Google degree and LegalZoom nightmares. You wouldn’t want to DIY your own root canal. There’s no reason why you should have to DIY your legal documents.
Let the professionals (us) help you to get it done easily and completely with actual legal knowledge and skills to back it up.

MEL’S WILL EXPERIENCE
Wow! I am so grateful to have met Iffy this year. Having our (will) done was on top of our 2019 to do list. A friend referred us to her and I’m so glad! Iffy is so professional but FUN! That is exactly what you need in a lawyer when doing your will. She’s extremely helpful and knowledgeable and extremely open minded!
OUR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OPTIONS INCLUDE:
Last Will and Testament
Often mistaken for a “living will,” this is the actual “will” people talk about when they mention wanting a will. We’re handing you the ruling scepter and the crown. Go ahead and declare all the rules and guidelines that you’ve been dreaming about when it comes to deciding how to pass on every single solitary thing that belongs to you.
Financial Power of Attorney
Name the person you trust to take your hard-earned money and put it to use in a way that fits your values and dreams.
Medical Power of Attorney
Declare the person you trust to take care of any healthcare-related decisions based on your personal preferences and values.
You know all of the people in your life who you trust with all the sensitive things, like medical information? Let’s go ahead and make it easy for those key people to access it so they don’t have to fight tooth and nail for the information you’d be handing them anyway.
Advance Healthcare Directive (Living Will)
This “living will” informs health providers and loved ones about what kinds of treatment you’re completely comfortable with and the kind where you draw the line. Make that line visible by spelling it out for no one to cross.
Pre-Need Guardian of Person and Estate
If you are ever incapacitated, you can nominate who will be responsible for your care and finances. You can also say who under no circumstances should participate in your care!
Nomination of Guardian for Minor (if relevant)
If one of life’s “what ifs” happens, your kids will benefit from knowing that a person you trust will handle their care and any finances you leave to them.
Celebration of Life Instructions (Final Disposition)
Think of this as the most extraordinary party you’ll ever throw! You get to decide the who, what, when, where, and whys that take place, so no one else has to plan on your behalf.
Testamentary Trusts for Minors
Within your will, you can plan how a minor child can receive the assets you’ve worked so hard to earn. We can plan for a child’s health, education, maintenance, and support! Remember, you get to decide!
Revocable Living Trust
Claim your power in deciding where your assets go and keep that power indefinitely. With a revocable living trust, you can make the changes as you see fit.
Special Needs Trust
Ensure that your special needs loved ones will always have the assistance and care they need to thrive within their talents. Their unique abilities can and will shine within the legacy you provide for them.
We don’t call them our fur babies for nothing! Rover and Mittens are family, too. Let’s create a future for them where they will always have their monthly spa treatment and the right brand of treats that make them feel loved.
Whatever your passions are, we can ensure that your hard-earned monetary assets get put to good use in supporting them! Let your impact include the causes you know are positively impacting the world.
how would you feel about your future knowing that everything’s been handled correctly?
here’s how your life will be remarkably different after we work together:
You will feel elevated, equipped, and empowered, knowing that your legacy plan is in place.
You will wonder why you didn’t decide to get a will, trust, or other legal documents sooner!
You’ll tell everyone you know about how awesome you feel—you know, like when happening upon an open parking spot in a crowded lot (pre-pandemic)!
BEFORE YOU CREATE YOUR LEGACY, HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS ANSWERED:
I DON’T HAVE AN ESTATE, ONLY DEBT. WHY SHOULD I CREATE AN ESTATE PLAN?
Yes. Many people hear “estate” and think of mansions and Oprah-level wealth. You certainly don’t have to be in the 1% to establish an estate plan. Anyone who wants to preserve agency in decision-making (e.g., healthcare decisions) benefits from a legal strategy. By setting up essential legal documents, your key people will have much-needed guidance on how best to help you.
Other means exist for passing on significant sums of wealth. For example, life insurance can provide an immediate income source to loved ones. Your beneficiaries can use it to pay off taxes or other debts, like a house note or college tuition. You’d be surprised at what you’re already sitting on. Let us show you!
WHAT IF I’M A SINGLE WOMAN WITHOUT ANY KIDS TO PASS A LEGACY TO?
Then you are in the most empowering position possible! You can go live overseas, be an artist one day, and a business owner the next. You get to choose who your life includes and how those people can show up for you. You are building a legacy unlike any other as we speak! Passing that on doesn’t have to mean passing it to children or a spouse. It can mean giving power to the causes you care about.
DO I HAVE TO LIVE IN TEXAS OR ARKANSAS TO WORK WITH YOU?
Not necessarily. We have plenty of amazing clients who are living the high life in other countries and states. However, we do require that you are domiciled (or have property) in either the states of Texas or Arkansas since that’s where we are licensed.
I NOTICED YOUR PAGE SPEAKS TO WOMEN. DO YOU WORK WITH MEN?
Absolutely! We work with all people because we are an inclusive law firm. If it sounds like we’re speaking more toward women, it’s because we have historically been excluded from decisions that affect our lives. I’m doing my part to ensure the power is in the woman’s hands for her own life!
IS THIS PROCESS COMPLICATED?
Not with us! Typically, our profession has failed to provide accessibility and equity to wills and other estate planning documents. But that norm is being disrupted by lawyers like us who will walk you through the process of estate planning and show you the best options for your family. We can help you get a plan to address emergencies and help you build generational wealth.
You deserve easy.
HOW MUCH DOES ALL OF THIS COST, ANYWAY?
“One-size-fits-all” estate plans do not exist. At the initial consultation, we will discuss your unique circumstances and requirements and provide you with a flat fee quote for my services. This means that you will pay what you pay and don’t have to worry about being nickel and dimed along the way!
Did we leave anything out? No problem. We’re happy to answer any remaining questions you may have. Don’t hesitate to book a complimentary consultation.
