What our clients say:

I also wanted to thank you for the good advice and help you offered throughout this process. You made everything so much easier for me and engineered an excellent way forward out of the problems I encountered. Thanks again.

– Helmut O.

Many thanks again.I tell everyone I know what a reasonable and very efficient way you conduct business and also that there is no difficulty involved in understanding what the procedure will be and how it will be implemented. Most complaints regarding lawyers (that I’ve heard consistently)revolve around them being unattainable after the initial consultation and throughout the whole process.In other words —-like hiring an answering machine and a receptionist.That has not been the case with you.

– Kate C.

Thank you very much for your very professional and expeditious help with handling my father’s estate.
