John helped my husband and I with our estate planning and wills. I appreciate his ability to listen, ask pertinent questions and provide the services we requested. He and his staff are efficient, easy to talk to, professional and friendly. I would also trust him with other legal services that I may need in the future. I have already recommended him to friends and family.

John was forthright with what the work he was doing for us was going to cost with detailed information. He met all deadlines he gave us. John also was flexible meeting with us around our other obligations. He spent time with us assuring that we understood his rationale for recommendations yet left the decision to us and encouraged us to think about our decision thoughtfully. We would go back to him for work where he has expertise and recommend him without any reservations!

John is an exceptional attorney. He helped me through a very challenging divorce a couple of years ago. He knew exactly what needed to be done and when. John is very thorough and kept me informed along the way. John is knowledgeable and patient also. He has a good sense of humor which helps when you are dealing with some difficult situations. I also used him to prepare a new Will and DPOA's. Great to work with!

I needed an attorney to handle a trust matter for my daughter and grandson, who live in the Seattle area. John worked very well with my personal attorney in Pennsylvania to get the trust established. I was very pleased with his work.

John Palmer was friendly, informative and responsive in revising my will and related documents such as health care directive, POAs. He was careful to explain the changes he recommended and to send me copies of completed drafts with the changes highlighted so that I could think them over and prepare questions before we met a second time to finalize. Final documents were clear and professional and his fee was reasonable.

John S. Palmer is an excellent attorney, whom I have recommended to others. He did all of my estate planning work for me and also has given me valuable and intelligent legal advice regarding a variety of situations. This was in the area of trusts, guardianships, and also helped some friends of mine who were in the midst of conflicts with relatives and so forth. He has also referred me to specialists in various areas of the law when necessary, as he is well acquainted with specialists in many areas of the legal community.

I've been very happy with his services. He analyzes a situation before he makes a decision or recommendation. It was a difficult case he worked on for us. He always thought about and researched the issues. the case took 5 years.
