  • Geoff N Germane

    Too many attorneys, especially in the area of estate planning, do not have a good knowledge of the law and the best legal strategies. Jason has technical depth and adds to it regularly by research and study and stays on top of changes in the law. As a result, he's able to offer customized services to his clients and produce superior results. Highly recommended.
