Legal Representation - real estate, estate planning, and business advice.
Attorney Lebo assisted my family with a number of legal matters, including various real estate closings, preparation of wills and estate planning documents, and formation of a business and advice relating to the same. He was always prompt, efficient, courteous and gave on-point advice. I highly recommend him.

Highly Recommend
I needed some last minute help dealing with a family estate closure as a beneficiary. Simon impressed me when he got back to me right away over a holiday weekend. He handled the case with great consideration and on a remarkably timely basis. I wouldn't hesitate to engage Simon again.

Estate Planning
Absolutely Fantastic. Listened to my concerns and took them into account, after spending a lot of time to explain the ramifications. He donated his personal time to help advise my relative about the her professional future, explaining pros and cons of various alternatives. Knowledgeable (including expert in International Wills), very timely in producing work, and work product of excellent quality. Highly recommended!!!!
