Steven is very knowledgable and compassionate about what he does. He has assisted both my parents and myself. He has always been responsive to our questions and needs. He takes time to listen and helps you decide what is the best option for your situation. I would highly recommend Steven for work with planning estates and trusts and setting up power of attorneys.
It's a rare thing to find an attorney who is down-to-earth AND competent; however, I believe Steve is just that. I have met with him several times and feel like he 'gets it' when it comes to personal planning. Not only does he have a great assistant in Anna, he has an open-door feel to his practice. He listens very well and understands then what you need even though you may not. He tells you the truth and then helps you decide what is best for you. I am thankful I found him. You can feel at ease talking with him about ALL your fears in estate planning. He seems to have a sixth sense about what your life is about and then applies those aspects into a well-written plan.
It all begins with learning our story, and Steven is an excellent listener. My wife and I were very comfortable in our meetings with Steven and received prompt, professional service.
Mr. Jackson prepared a comprehensive revocable trust for my wife and I. He was very patient and explained all our options in detail and took the time to answer our questions in lay terms. He was very timely in preparing the trust, taking only about two weeks.
Mr. Jackson was recommended to us by our financial advisor to assist with my Mother's trust and to establish ours as well. He was able to answer our questions and asked questions that we had not thought off. He offered options for creating our trust and insightful information as to the various options for us to consider. He is the ultimate professional, a subject matter expert, detail oriented and has a wonderful personality. A true pleasure to work with and has our highest recommendation.
We were in need of legal help for a revision of our Last Will & Testament. We asked our financial advisor, who is also a trusted friend. He offered the name of his lawyer, Steven A. Jackson. That was sufficient for us. We met with Mr. Jackson. We had questions that he answered simply for our understanding. After our first meeting, we had additional questions and he answered those as well...patiently. We are more than satisfied with his service.
Handled setting up our trust quickly and thoroughly. No complaints.
We needed in depth trust planning for several different trusts and circumstances. Steve was extraordinarily responsive, while making sure that he had a very thorough understanding of our situation in order to match specific solutions directly in line with our needs. We have used other attorneys for such in the past, but this experience was far and away the best and most comprehensive we have ever found. We found Steve to be extremely professional in every way and very responsive in terms of timing and completeness.
