Tom Vercauteren came to Hurley, Burish, S.C. after five years in trust and estate administration. His experience on the administrative side helps him recognize where estate plans can go wrong, and how to prevent the aftermath of a poorly constructed plan. Tom understands that emotions can run high after a loved one’s passing and difficult decisions must be made. “Having a thorough plan in place that can spare your loved ones some of the emotional stress of losing you is a wonderful gift. The right plan can only be achieved by listening and respecting your goals and desires.”
