Our experience was excellent. The office staff were very helpful, professional, and skilled in their areas of responsibilities. Our attorney, Beth Ann, was very knowledgeable in regards to our estate plan needs. She made sure she understood our needs and transcribed those needs to our documents. She thoroughly educated us, so that we could make appropriate decisions. A very pleasant experience.

"Beth Ann is awesome! Explained things in great detail – was extra engaged with my elderly mother – made her feel very comfortable! I have given out lots of her business cards within my business."

Everything met or exceeded our expectations from the initial seminar through the final document signing conference. Attorney Kenneth Dodl is a competent professional who treats the client with respect and explains the details in a clear, caring manner. I have no suggestions or recommendations for improvement – NONE NEEDED!
- H. Hunt
"We can’t suggest ‘improvements’ as Mr. Dodl was so organized and clear, both in the planning session and the signing session. Our adult children felt at ease asking questions. He made these ‘decisions for our life’ so easy to discuss – when it was so hard. Thank you."
