  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I heartily endorse and recommend attorney Powers. With over 15 years of solid experience behind her, her honors graduation from Cannon Trust School, certification as a trust-financial adviser, and membership in Wealth Counsel, along with her Avvo.com published answers and two very nicely done Legal Guides published, one thing should be crystal clear - she knows the law and how to make sure that your assets are taken care of for maximum benefit to you and your heirs. When I started out in law I learned very quickly that the complexity and difficulties in Estate Planning took a special knack to learn and master. She has it. That's why I say that if you have an Estate Planning or Estate Law question, she is your answer. Period.
