About Us


I'm Bonnie Faucett.

When I was practicing as a full-time estate planning attorney with a busy practice, I was trying to do it all but feeling like there was not enough time. I would be sending last-minute emails to clients with a few more pieces of information I had forgotten to ask, and I would be drafting at the eleventh hour because my process was chaotic. I figured there had to be a better way, and I started working on the problem, uncovering key things they didn't teach me in law school. Then I realized the problem was bigger than I thought, and I started sharing it. With Legacy System™ I'm sharing for the first time exactly how I figured out how to stop the madness of clunky data intake and last-minute drafting, find my sanity and a way to serve double the clients without working more or hiring more staff, and give my clients a great impression for my clients to boot.
