Great Experience and highly recommended!
My husband and I worked with Miles to complete our estate plan last year and our experience was nothing but positive. Miles is professional, organized, and very knowledgeable. He easily guided us through the planning process and answered our questions. The service was second to none and I would recommend Miles without hesitation.

Excellent Representation for My Mother's Case
Miles represented my mother in an improvident transfer case brought by her step-sons after my step-father's passing. Miles partnered with her every step of the way, while also recognizing how emotionally stressful and hurtful this situation was for her. This case took nearly two years, and was finally dismissed, due in large part to the excellent representation given by Miles. He is tops in the field, has an excellent rapport with judges in the courtroom, and does not miss any detail that could benefit his client.

Excellent legal advice.
A++! Miles prepared my estate planning documents, and took every opportunity to make sure that my needs were met. He made what is often a sensitive and difficult task extremely comfortable and streamlined. Thoughtful, patient, and knowledgeable, he is an excellent communicator. I have had other attorneys prepare documents for me in the past, but with Miles' guidance, I feel for the first time that I am clear about how my estate is set up. Highly recommended, and a pleasure to work with!

Estate Planning
Miles is of the highest caliber. We were a little intimated by the process but Miles stepped us through it with professionalism. He was always available to answer our questions and interpret the legal terms in plain English. He made this complex process seem easy and we are pleased with the outcome. We now feel at ease that our affairs are now in order and our final wishes will be carried out. We highly recommend him.

Showed both professionalism and care.
My mother recently lost her life-partner to a combination of mesothelioma and heart failure. When he was given the diagnosis, he needed to get his personal affairs in order. We went to Miles to help because of his experience in elder law. He was easy to work with and both my mother and her partner was more than pleased with his assistance. Miles prepared all the documents needed from their wills to the handling of the estate. I certainly appreciated his help as I had no idea what was to be expected. Anyone faced with elder law would do well to contact Miles.

Miles did a great job in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable fee getting us set up with necessary estate planning documents. He also took the time to understand our family's priorities, and explained the strategy to my wife in an understandable manner. I would recommend him to anyone.

Highly Recommended
My wife and I needed to update our estate documents to reflect our move to the state of Maine. Miles gave us valuable and sensible advice, suited to fit our particular needs, stage of life, and extended family situation. He quickly drafted some documents for review, and we met to iron out details. The experience was very professional. We had some follow-up questions after signing, and Miles was very responsive to our questions and clarifications. He comes highly recommended from us!
