You and Your Family Are Valuable
You and your family are more valuable to one another than can adequately be put into words, and that relationship is the foundation of all of the Infinite Legacy℠ Planning we do, whether for personal or business purposes. Your assets are the result of your relationships, values, and knowledge, which are far more useful to those you leave behind than the assets alone. We do our best work for families who want to ensure that their surviving spouse or other heirs are appropriately educated, equipped and empowered with an Infinite Legacy℠ Plan that guides them in becoming stewards of the family’s assets, knowledge, and beliefs.
Your Legacy Is Valuable
Our Four-Step Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Process will help you identify and protect what is most valuable to you and your family. Our Infinite Legacy℠ and Companion Legal℠ Programs then educate, equip, and empower your family and other heirs to carry out your Infinite Legacy℠ Plan while preserving your values and strengthening those relationships.
Your Time Is Valuable
We offer a free confidential Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Session for your family or your business. Our Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Session is an in-depth exploration of the relationships and assets important to your family or business. These meaningful discussions will result in concrete action steps for protecting your family, your business and your Infinite Legacy℠. We do all of this on your time schedule at one of our offices in Grandville, Grand Rapids, or Muskegon or at your place of business or home if you are unable to make it to one of our offices.

Four-Step Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Process
1. Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Session.
The Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Session is the cornerstone to our planning process. We learn as much as we can about what is most important to you and provide options for how you can immediately begin to take steps to create an action plan to best protect those people and things. We use this meeting to help put you at ease that, no matter how simple or complex your situation is, we have an Infinite Legacy℠ Plan to suit you. Our Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Sessions are valued at over $700, but we offer them to you at no cost to make sure you are comfortable working with us before you commit to anything. To schedule your Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Session, click here or call us at 800-667-5291.
2. Information Gathering.
The second step of our process is to have you gather information about your assets, family, business, and important relationships that we will use in the next step to help you design the best Infinite Legacy℠ Plan for your family, your assets, your values, and your budget. This step will take some effort on your part, but it is essential to make sure that your Infinite Legacy℠ Plan will work for you and your family. For many people, this is the first time they see everything important to them listed on one spot.
3. Design Meeting.
Once you have decided to work with us and have gathered information about your family, your assets, your business, and your important relationships, we will spend time together discussing how these all interact with one another and with your goals. At the end of your design meeting, we will provide you with a comprehensive summary of your Infinite Legacy℠ Plan and will work with you to iron out the details until your Infinite Legacy℠ Plan is customized to meet the needs of you and your family both now and well into the future.
4. Legacy Creation.
The culmination of your Infinite Legacy℠ Plan happens when we meet and have you sign the paperwork, but that is not the end of our work with you. In fact, it is just the beginning of the real work to ensure your family is educated and empowered to carry out your plan. We will regularly provide you with legal updates and will also continue to meet with you, your advisors and your family to ensure that your Infinite Legacy℠ Plan continues to be understood, kept up to date and successfully carried out. Much of our education is provided through our Companion Legal℠ educational system in the form of written guidebooks, videos, live events, newsletters, and other informational materials designed to make it easy for you and your family to carry out your plan.
Urgent Scheduling Option
*Note: We are normally able to schedule a free Infinite Legacy℠ Planning Session within 14-21 days. If you have a more urgent situation that you need to discuss sooner, we will accommodate you as soon as our schedule allows, but we require payment of a $350 urgent consultation fee prior to scheduling. This fee is required because we carry a full schedule and must move other projects outside our normal working schedule to accommodate your urgent consultation.
Background and Experience
Attorney Shawn Eyestone enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife and six children as possible. He loves hiking, biking, kayaking, and traveling. He is proud to have been to 49 of the 50 states, and he has lots of interesting stories about taking road trips with the whole family to California, Florida, New York, Washington, D.C., and everywhere in between (except Alaska, that’s still on his bucket list).
He also comes from a long line of widows and has tried from an early age to make the best of his short time on this earth. His mother became a widow when she was 63, his grandmother became a widow when she was 52, and his great-grandmother became a widow when she was 30. His mother and grandmother have shown him first hand the basic needs of those left behind when a loved one dies and the importance of living life fully. This experience has instilled in Shawn a passion for putting plans together that educate, equip, and empower widows and other heirs.
Attorney Shawn Eyestone’s work has greatly benefited numerous families over the years, and, as a result, he has been awarded the highest ratings offered by AVVO and Martindale-Hubbell, two of the most respected organizations that rate attorneys. He is a regular co-host of the Milestones Life Transitions radio program on WJRW 1340Am on Saturdays at 10am and has been a regular contributor to other local media outlets.
Shawn earned his law degree from Wayne State University Law School after first graduating with a bachelor’s degree from the Lee Honors College of Western Michigan University. Following law school, Shawn worked as an attorney in the estate planning, and business law practice groups of West Michigan and Detroit-area law firms, gaining valuable experience and a very loyal client-following.
Shawn is actively involved with WealthCounsel, a nationwide consortium of over 2,300 of the top estate planing and business attorneys in the country. He is also a member of the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils, the Western Michigan Estate Planning Council, and the State Bar of Michigan, where he has been selected to serve on several state-wide committees. Shawn is the President of the Grand Rapids Lions Club, a Deacon at church, a coach with Grandville AYSO, and a past president and former director of the SLD Center.
