Rebecca Cummings created Legacy Studio to use her 20+ years of experience in estate law to promote peace and peace of mind with a team of people who share her vision and values. We are driven by finding affordable ways to get expert estate advice to everyday people. After all, a sound estate plan is key to peace of mind for all people—and post-death peace in all families.

Our Core Values



Your planning will be in perfect legal order, and will be practical as well.  If a Camry will do, we don’t sell you a Cadillac.



Let's get to the heart of the matter and address issues in the most direct and efficient manner.



We're in the peace of mind business. We care about you and what is important to you.
