    Jim Alder has helped my family with Guardian, Conservator, and Probate matters for several years. He has always been very professional and personable in providing legal advice, assistance, and representation.
    Jim recently responded immediately to a couple of urgent situations. Both required further investigation and consultation on his part to give me the specific, individual advice I needed. His timely effort and service was greatly appreciated.
    I highly recommend him.

    Jim helped me plan and complete my will. When I contacted Jim, he responded quickly to all of my questions. I feel like he helped me to make good decisions for my future. Jim was competent, precise, and trustworthy. Jim asked questions about me and my circumstances so that my will was completed exactly how I wanted it to be; I feel like if I pass away, there will be no questions about how my estate should be handled. More importantly, should I be in a position that I am unable to make decisions, my family will know how I want to be taken care of. When the process was complete, I had no remaining questions and felt completely at ease about my estate should something happen to me. I am confident that should something happen to me, my family, friends, and estate will be taken care of the way I want them to be taken care of. I am completely satisfied with the services that Jim provided for me.

    I found the lack of any defined billing a little disconcerting. There was no invoice to pay or receipt for payments. I also felt like the assistant failed to follow through on some paperwork issues but nothing major.
