Paul did estate planning for me and my wife – a complicated matter with significant net worth. He believes in working efficiently: for example, when doing an estate plan, he first has clients fill out a questionnaire, so he doesn't waste time going over basic information. When possible, he charges a flat rate for the work – and sticks to it. He is also not dogmatic when it comes to process: if you have an idea for working more efficiently, he will try and accommodate you. Paul is digitally savvy, both in his own practice and on behalf of his clients. And he welcomes clients in nontraditional relationships. Finally, he has a good sense of humor and irony: something missing in a lot of attorneys ( of at least they don't exhibit it to their clients).

My estate involves two past marriages, my second wife's death, trusts, stepchildren and my upcoming third marriage. Paul did a great job explaining the 'ins and outs' and potential scenarios that might occur, and then he customized our estate plan to our situation - no cookie-cutter stuff here! My fiance' and I were very pleased with his product and the fixed price approach for the completed package. Very thorough - first class job,

Paul is a true asset to our legal community. His professionalism, knowledge and ethics place him among the cream of the crop. He is down to earth and easy to work with. Since I have known Paul, he has always made his clients his top priority. It does not get any better than that!
