Exceptional Service
After consulting with Attorney Craig, I can see she clearly cares about her clients which is vital for estate planning. Her clients are not just a number to her. She is also professional, communicative, and reliable; I would highly recommend her services to anyone who needs a new estate plan or review of an older one.
