Greg has done excellent quality work on multiple estates and trusts. Very responsive and approachable for legal needs and issues. Would highly recommend.
Hired Greg to help with my mother’s estate. He explained the process and was there through probate court. He was very informative and helpful. After the process was over, he helped with my estate planning and setting up a trust. Would recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.
Greg helped me understand the ins and outs of how estate planning works for me and my business. I didn't realize a will wasn't enough to avoid probate court until after speaking with him.
Greg and his staff have been extremely helpful to me and my family by helping us to navigate paperwork mess that is Probate. Thank you Greg!
