  • Dagmar Pollex

    I have known Teresa and have worked with her for quite a few years as a colleague in estate planning professional organizations. Teresa is one of the most competent and caring estate planning attorneys in the U.S. She combines her technical expertise with top notch client attention and services. She is also very civic minded and generously shares her expertise with colleagues. I would refer family and friends to her without reservation.
