Welcome to Merhab Robinson, Jackson & Clarkson • A Professional Corporation (“MRJC”)

We are dedicated to assisting you with planning for your family and your business to ensure that you, your family, and your business are protected so you can focus on what is most important to you.

Every family is unique which means that every estate plan must also be unique. From individuals, families with minor children, blended families, same s*x couples, and families with special needs, we understand your family is the most important asset that you have. At MRJC we believe estate planning is not just about transferring your financial assets and personal belongings. It's also about capturing and transferring your valuable intangible gifts: who you are and what's important to you – your values, insights, stories, and experience.

At MRJC, we work with you to design estate plans that reflect your goals and will work when your loved ones need it most. If you have minor children, your plan will make sure your children will be taken care of in the best way possible and will be prepared to receive your wealth if anything happens to you.

We encourage communication with our clients to keep your plan up to date year in and year out. Creating your family's estate plan is only the beginning of our relationship with your family. After the planning phase is complete, the maintenance phase of your plan will begin. At no additional charge, we review your plan at least every three years and keep you informed about changes in the law and about other issues that affect your family and your wealth. You'll be amazed at how easy and painless the entire planning process will be for your family.
