  • Scott Allen Williams

    I have known Mike since we were both members of the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys in the early 1990's. We have had numerous discussions of complex legal and tax concepts over the years and I have always been impressed with his ability to analyze legal issues and formulate practical solutions that benefit his clients. Mike is an outstanding lawyer who genuinely cares about the success of his clients' estate plans.
