EXCELLENT ATTORNEY FOR ESTATE PLANNING
We work with a variety of different professional service vendors for a few different business and private matters. We rarely give endorsements like this. Hire this man! My wife and I hired Tim to establish our estate plan (revocable trust, healthcare proxy, power of attorney.) He also advised us on our real estate holdings and helped us restructure that component in tandem with the estate plan and also gave us general advice and quality referrals to an insurance agent. My wife and I are very curious people and we don't sign anything we don't understand and Tim was extraordinarily patient in explaining the mechanics of our estate plan. He is also very tolerant and flexible. As an example, we made a small mistake and forgot to include a particular beneficiary on parts of our estate plan and we discovered it on the signing day when Tim had the 400 page legal documents printed and ready to sign. He said "no big deal" Went and changed it all and re-printed it and was totally nonplussed. Also, we interviewed other attorneys and oftentimes they would have a paralegal or junior associate do the initial call. Tim does the first call with clients for 1 hour and basically in that 1 hour he laid out the entire game plan. We interviewed 3 other firms in addition to Tim, and Time just blew the others out of the water.

Excellent Estate Planning Attorney
My husband and I contacted Attorney Timothy Robertson in the middle of the Pandemic to discuss Trust options. He responded in a timely manner and explained everything in detail, he was very personable and easy to interact with. Attorney Robertson gave us advice remotely, was very patient with our questions, took the time to educate us on what each document meant an expertly guided us through the Estate Planning. The process was smooth, thorough and highly organized from start to finish. We highly recommend engaging the services of Attorney Robertson for anyone needing Estate Planning services. Thank you.

Flexible & Helpful
We worked with Tim on our estate planning earlier this year. It was a thoughtful and easy experience, and we appreciate Tim's help (and patience) while we made these important decisions. Tim was flexible and communicative, and worked around our sometimes busy schedules.

Estate Planning
We hired Tim Robertson to prepare and execute a trust, power of attorney and health care proxy. He was extremely helpful during the this process, willing to answer our many questions and even guiding us beyond. It is never an easy time discussing these issues, but he made it simple, plus his rate is very fair. I am very happy we worked with him, 100% satisfied.

Highly qualified to represent your interest.
Tim Robertson is a trustworthy estate lawyer. I began this process feeling intimidated by my lack of estate knowledge. Tim is a professional with great patience and he answered all my questions and concerns. When we finished our work I left feeling great comfort knowing that the future, both living and in passing, that I and my family will be much more secure and protected. Please consider Tim for your needs; you will be satisfied.

A Great Attorney and a Good man!
I recently was in need of an attorney to draft a will for my estate. I have known Attorney Robertson for years, and I know him to be of excellent character. Up until now, I had no need of his services. I can tell you that he has been courteous and timely in every aspect of our working together. I am very happy with this lawyer.
