Our Story

A Note from Kent Hansen

Joseph Tombs and Gregory Maxwell founded Tombs Maxwell LLP in 2009 with a mission to help personal injury attorneys and their clients with legal and financial settlement planning resources. Over the years, our firm has assisted thousands of clients (and their attorneys) navigate settlement-related issues (government benefits planning, special needs trusts, structured settlement annuities, Medicare Secondary Payer Act compliance, estate planning, and more.).

From its original mission, our firm has expanded to provide the same high level of individualized planning to individual clients and their other professional advisors (e.g., Financial Advisors, CPAs, Insurance Professionals, etc.) related to trust and estates, asset protection, and special needs planning.

We focus on comprehensive client education, identifying and implementing the client’s goals, and team-based planning.

A client has lots of planning options in most situations. We believe in providing clear and concise education about those options through workshops and client counseling sessions.

Equally important is understanding where the client is coming from and the client’s goals for the future. At every step of our process, we strive to identify client goals and ensure information, options, and desired outcomes are in line with the client’s goals.

We believe in the power of teamwork. We have found working with clients and their other professional advisors helps foster better planning and better outcomes.

Educated with the options that will best achieve his or her goals, the client is able to move forward with a plan that is truly tailored to the client’s situation. Then, a team-based approach to implementing the client’s plan offers the greatest opportunity for the client’s goals and objectives to be obtained.

We’d be honored to work with you and your professional advisors. If we can help—or just provide education—please feel free to reach out.
