Intentional estate planning is how we add peace to your life.
WOMEN BELONG IN ALL PLACES WHERE DECISIONS ARE BEING MADE. – RBG
That’s where we come in.
We give our fellow women the tools they need to deeply consider and formalize decisions for their lifetime and to avoid leaving behind a mess for others to clean up in the future.
We use our legal know-how to guide your choices so you can finally cross estate planning off your list! With a few simple meetings, you will leave relieved and comforted (at least about this), knowing you took the time to provide your best for yourself and your loved ones!
HERE’S SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
64% OF MEN ARE IN A RELATIONSHIP WITHIN 25 MONTHS OF LOSING A SPOUSE. MAKE SURE YOUR KIDS AREN’T LOST IN THE SHUFFLE OF NEW LOVE.
WHEN STATISTICS SAY THAT 60% OF WOMEN DON’T HAVE WILLS, IT’S NOT BECAUSE THEY’RE NEGLIGENT.
Historically, as women, we were not given the autonomy to make decisions that significantly affect our lives, bodies, and wealth. Today, we invest, buy real estate, run companies, raise children, start our businesses, support causes, manage households, and advocate for health decisions. Men have driven the bus for too long; now, we’re taking the wheel for decisions that affect us! Establishing an estate plan is the next natural step for a woman coming into full agency in decision-making.
what would it feel like to…
Know that your children can travel overseas rather than take a desk job after college?
Set your loved ones up financially and make things easier for the next generation, rather than leave a legacy of family members fighting, stealing, and estrangement?
Know that you will make critical health and emergency decisions according to your specifications?
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.

Other Estate Planning Considerations
DO YOU WANT A FUTURE WHERE EVERYTHING IS HANDLED CORRECTLY?
here’s how your life will be remarkably different after we work together:
You can finally stop thinking about estate planning.
You’ll feel a measure of control over what happens to the fruits of your labor.
You will feel at peace, knowing that everything is taken care of for your healthcare decisions.
You’ll no longer wing it or hope for the best now that you’ve properly planned.
Everything you've worked hard for will benefit your family for years and generations to come.
When you pass away, the only thing your loved ones have to worry about or consider is grieving.
BEFORE YOU CREATE YOUR ESTATE PLAN, HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS ANSWERED
I DON’T HAVE AN ESTATE, ONLY DEBT. WHY SHOULD I CREATE AN ESTATE PLAN?
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 ANYTHING TO?
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?
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?
A WORD ABOUT OUR FLAT FEE PRICING
We use flat fees known and agreed to in advance, so you are not ever surprised. We design plans to save you and your family exponentially more money and heartache than the plan’s cost. Most importantly, we want you to trust that your investment is worth every.single.solitary.penny. And so much more! Please don’t tell us about the lawyer who will create an estate plan for $999. We are NOT that firm. We are different, intentionally.
