Stephen Phelps, who retired in 2009 after 30 years of law practice, is the original founder of Phelps Law. As a young attorney back in the early 1980’s, Stephen had the courage to “hang out his shingle” and, as he puts it, sit around and wait for the phone to ring … and ring it did! Over his 30 years of practice, Stephen helped thousands of clients plan for the future. Stephen was preparing Living Trusts for his clients at a time when hardly anyone knew what a Living Trust was. Today, those trusts have withstood the test of time and have served his clients and their families well.
Stephen is loved by his clients. They appreciated his experience, practical wisdom and sense of humor as he counseled them – not just as their attorney but as their close friend.
Stephen’s son, James, and all of us at Phelps Law are grateful for his foresight because we now have the privilege of working with the families who he counseled, and we see their estate plans work in real life … and they really do work!
Stephen and his wife Carolei are now enjoying their 10 children and 48 grandchildren (and still counting). Every single child and grandchild lives within 20 minutes of “Grammy and Papa’s” house, so needless to say, they are not bored in their retirement. That is their legacy!
