Estate Planning
Sam helped me and my family to develop a comprehensive estate plan including wills, living wills, power of attorney and all necessary language for any potential circumstance. He brought a great deal of professionalism and knowledge to our meetings and his work product. Sam's work has brought my wife and I a great sense of peace, knowing that our children will be cared for in any event.
