  • James Thomas Kinder

    I have known Attorney Joseph Morana for more than 20 years. In all that time, in whatever endeavor he directs his energy, he has achieved superior results. Since Attorney Morana became a lawyer, I have without reservation, referred clients to Attorney Morana for their Estate Planning needs. I also consult with Attorney Morana for estate planning issues for which I am not equipped to handle, or just need clarification. The feedback from referrals is a resounding appreciation for the professionalism, knowledge, and attention to clients needs and concerns that Attorney Morana devotes to each matter. It is an honor to endorse Attorney Morana.
