  • Walter William Blenner

    I am an area attorney and I always use the professional services of Dave Folkenflik when I have a settlement that has to go through Probate. Dave not only knows Estate Planning and Probate but he also practices in the area of personal injury law so he is uniquely qualified to assist me in getting settlement proceeds through probate in an efficient way. On top of that he is a consummate professional and is very good with clients.
