  • Michael Lewis Van Cise

    I recently spoke to Tanner regarding a number of legal issues including estate planning, trusts, planning for special needs beneficiaries, and debt collection. I am constantly impressed by Tanner's ability to think, his ability to understand the requirements of the law yet provide practical solutions to his clients. I endorse Tanner's work. I have had the great pleasure of working with Tanner on a second matter involving discovery matters. I found Tanner to be highly knowledgeable of procedural and tactical matters relating to litigation and discovery and will definitely consult with him in the future. He has been a huge help to me. I highly recommend Tanner's work.
