Learn about estate planning from our partner Cades Schutte LLP

Sign up for a Basic Estate Planning virtual session courtesy of our NEA Attorney Referral Program

Have you started your estate plan? It is important to anticipate and arrange a plan for your assets during your lifetime, so there is a clear direction for you to pass them down to your loved ones. Many people, however, do not know where to begin.

To help you get started, the Hawaii State Teachers Association is proud to announce our first NEA Attorney Referral program partner, Cades Schutte LLP.

Trusts and estates attorneys Summer Shelverton, Pohai Campbell, Caitlin Moon, and Daniel Vermillion are available to assist HSTA members and their families with basic estate planning, which includes drafting wills, revocable living trusts, powers of attorney, and advance health-care directives.

The program kicks off with a free Basic Estate Planning virtual session on Friday, Aug. 14, at 3:30 p.m. This session will serve as an introduction to estate planning, as well as cover basic considerations that you may have.

The NEA Attorney Referral Program provides HSTA members and their families with affordable access to legal help for personal matters. HSTA members can take advantage of two free 30-minute consultations during the calendar year and a savings of 30-percent off the normal fee in five core areas. The core area in which Cades Schutte has agreed to provide these types of services is Trusts & Estates.

Before attorneys can help our members, they are approved by both the NEA and HSTA, and must agree to provide services at convenient times outside education employees’ normal work days, discuss fees before they provide services, and accept payment by installment payment plans.

Cades Schutte is a full-service law firm with more than 70 attorneys, providing superior service in over 20 practice areas from the firm's main office in Honolulu and offices in Kona, Waimea, Kahului, and Lihue. Visit Cades Schutte’s website here.
