  • Suzanne Benvenuto Simpson

    Gus and I worked together on a very complex probate case that spanned several states and included over forty interested persons. His insight, wisdom, calm and friendly manner helped this estate process in a much smoother manner than may otherwise have happened. I've been able to contact Gus to toss around ideas over the years and greatly appreciate his willingness to share his knowledge with his colleagues. I am delighted to recommend Gus.
