Real estate/closing
We used this office to handle the process of selling our home. All of the necessary paperwork was drafted in a timely fashion. The process was transparent, all steps were clearly defined to us, and all questions answered. As someone who is a stickler for appointments, I appreciated that all of our appointment times were on time.

I was referred to my attorney by a friend and I couldn't be more happier. I advised him of what I was seeking and he explained the procedure and the estimated time of completion. He also expressed concerns of the situation and made time to address any forgotten thoughts. He always spoke with care and respect. He always made you feel comfortable...esespically during a challenging moment.
