We engaged Atty Nichols in order to obtain an opinion about the purchase of a property located in Idaho by a trustee. We needed information regarding the ownership by the trust, payment of various expenses, leasing requirements, use of a mortgage, and proper indemnification, all within the context of the community property statutes of Idaho. We had a very short time frame within which to work.
Atty Nichols responded exceedingly promptly. He provided accurate, concise answers, and explained the impact of each of these issues on community property law. He also drafted a document to protect the trust.
When additional facts came to light that changed the circumstances surrounding the purchase, Atty Nichols again responded very promptly and explained how to address the matter. He also provided additional advice regarding potential future issues which we had not considered. We especially appreciated his foresight in addressing these matters.
An attorney who can take the time on short notice to provide extensive advice to a new client is unique. An attorney who can make what appears to be a very complex issue clearly understandable by communicating at the client's level of understanding is rarer still.
We hightly recommend Attorney Nichols. We expect to engage his services again when we take the next step in the process to create an protective entity within the trust for holding the real estate.

My mother has needed help with her finances and overall well-being for many years. She let me know that she was ready to let me help her by going to see a lawyer to create a general durable power of attorney, a living will and durable power of attorney for healthcare, HIPAA paperwork, authorization to release financial information and living will and testament. My aunt had recommended me to William Nichols. So, I contacted his law office and was able to quickly receive answers and make an appointment. It is key to work with people that would make my mother feel comfortable with such a large step in her life. William and his team were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Also, they directed all questions directly to her in a calm, sincere and clear manner, which I think let her understand that she was in charge of the process. I am finally able to help my mother, communicate with her doctors and take care of her finances. Also, we have sorted out ahead of time answers to questions that would be hard to take care of later on in life. I am very grateful for this and I would recommend William Nichols to anyone.
