David Feakes is the founder and owner of The Parents Estate Planning Law Firm, PC. Seeking ways to connect and build long-term relationships with his clients, David started the firm in 1998 when his oldest daughter (now in her mid 20s) was just a baby.
David and his wife, Paula (who joined the firm in 2008) wanted to connect with young parents to help them breathe easy knowing that if they created the right plan, there would never be any doubt about who would take care of their children. With this goal in mind, David joined the Family Wealth Planning Institute where he learned everything he could about estate planning for young families.
As David and Paula aged and their two daughters became young adults and moved away from home, they incorporated empty nester planning into their niche and now have a firm that truly serves every stage of parenting.
Everyone has a story they want to share. David’s story is not unique, but it did shape his career path to owning his own estate planning law firm. David’s parents divorced when he was young and his father was absent for most of David’s childhood. Having never felt truly protected by his father as a child, David is committed to ensuring his clients have the best protection in place for their children.
David works with his clients to guide them as they preserve and protect their assets, loved ones and legacies; their stories, guidance and advice – the intangible assets that are often forgotten in typical estate planning.
David received his law degree from Suffolk University in Boston, and a B.B.A. in Management from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He frequently speaks to parenting, community and professional groups on the importance of estate planning.
In his free time, David enjoys skiing, star gazing, hiking with his dog, Stella, traveling, and reading.
