Wisconsin Estate Planning Services

Planning for Families

I work with families of all shapes and sizes to develop a plan that works to achieve your goals. Together we can:

  • Preserve your wealth
  • Keep your affairs private and out of court
  • Protect your legacy for years to come
  • Protect your vision for a non-traditional living arrangement

Planning for Singles

You've worked hard to get where you are. No matter what stage of life you're in, you want to make your own decisions and protect what you've created. Together, we can:

  • Make sure your medical and healthcare wishes are always honored and respected in the event of illness
  • Ensure your assets are passed on according to your plan (not the State's plan for you)
  • Keep your assets protected if you're anticipating marriage or divorce.

Planning for Your Children

Your children mean the world to you. Yet most estate plans do the bare minimum to protect them. At Trinkl Estate Planning S.C., I take pride in building comprehensive plans that:

  • Make sure your children are cared for by the people you choose
  • Prevent custody battles and disputes
  • Protect your child's inheritance from creditors, divorce, or abuse

This isn't your typical estate planning law firm.

I built my practice because I saw a need for business owners and families in Wisconsin to be served in a new, better way.

That's why every estate plan includes the following benefits and services:


No More Wondering "what will this cost me?"

Open communication and an understanding of your options are key to designing a plan that best serves your goals and wishes.

I offer flat-fee pricing so that nothing is rushed or left out of your plan...

and you never have to worry about receiving a surprise bill for a phone call or email.


Thorough Planning for Children

If you have minor children, just having a will alone will not protect your children from being placed in the care of strangers in the event that you become incapacitated or die.

We'll set up a comprehensive plan that nominates both temporary and permanent guardians for your children.


Your Plan Stays Up to Date

Most law firms lack the systems to follow up with changes to your lifestyle, family, and assets, resulting in an out-of-date plan that will not work.

We review your plan, free of charge, every three years upon your request to ensure your plan accounts for changes in your life.


Your Assets Will Be Preserved and Protected

  • We inventory and maintain a list of your assets throughout your life to avoid losing them to the Wisconsin State Department of Unclaimed Property.
  • We provide asset accountability to make sure your assets are owned in the right way.

How We'll Work Together

Milwaukee Estate Planning Lawyer Stefanie Trinkl


We start with a careful review of what would happen to you and your loved ones under your current estate plan, or without a plan.

Once you're equipped to make an informed decision, we'll work with you to design a plan based on your goals and values.

Most estate plans stop short at protecting your financial assets. I'll help you preserve and pass on what really matters to you.

Feel Confident In Your Plan

We want you to feel confident that you are making the best choices for yourself and your loved ones. Before creating a personalized plan, I ask questions to get a full picture of your situation and goals.

Then I'll help you understand your options without talking down at you or overwhelming you with jargon or legalese.

We've thoughtfully packaged what we do into customizable options for you and your family. All of our fees are flat-rate and agreed to in advance so there are no surprises.

Attorney Stefanie Trinkl

Hi, I'm Stefanie,

Wisconsin Estate Planning & Business Planning attorney

I'm passionate about helping Wisconsin families and business owners protect their assets and preserve what matters to them for generations to come.

When I first started practicing law in Milwaukee, I realized the estate planning industry isn't designed to serve growing families or protect their children to the fullest extent possible.

That's why I started Trinkl Estate Planning, S.C.

My goal is to offer Wisconsin families, business owners, and individuals a holistic and welcoming approach to estate planning, asset protection, and business planning.
