I found Valerie to be easy to work with, knowledgeable and efficient. She was thoroughly professional helping me with my probate duties. Her fee was reasonable and her estimates accurate . I highly recommend her.
I contacted Ms. Kirkendall via e-mail, snail mail, and phone about concerns over handling of estate by personal representative she did not respond. I was able to eventually reach Ms Kirkendall it took approximately a month. I was inquiring about the distribution of my mothers estate I was told three weeks that was early OCT 2011 . Nothing happened. I contacted her office again no response. When I was finally able to reach Ms Kirkendall I was told she had been with the flu and paper work had sat on her desk but she assured me everything was in order and all paper work was filed on time. I received order from court early Nov-2011 for final distribution of estate was filed on Oct 19th. I was able to reach Ms Kirkendall I inquired about a time limit I was informed Judge takes her time on these matters and I was looking at 9 weeks. It is now Jan 19 of 2012 I contacted the courthouse today and was informed by the clerk she received papers Dec 9th 2011it had been sent to audit and there is a 4-6 wk turn around. The estate was charged a fee even though Ms Kirkendall did not respond to all phone calls and mailings . I did not think she handle any of this in a timely matter.
