  • Gregory Paul Turza

    Tom is a colleage of mine. He is an outstanding elder law attorney and the clients I have referred to him have always been very pleased with his work. Tom and I often network and share ideas on estate planning and he has always been generous with his time and a valuable resource. You can't go wrong engaging Tom to solve your elder law and general estate planning problems.
