I am a Fee based Financial Planner and have utilized Gary with many clients. All legal drafts are reviewed by our Lawyers prior to clients executing. He is the only Lawyer that, to date, our Lawyers have not offered edits on. The only comment has been that his documents are the most comprhensive they have seen.
Sometimes clients insist on using their own Attorney. My experience has been that if their concentration is not in Estate Planning the level of work is not as good and it is difficult working with them. This is serious business where a missed opportunity in your planning could cost your heirs dearly. You also have to consider the unnintentional/accidental disinheritence of a family member, especially with second marraiges.
Clients love him, his explanaitions are sometimes visual and always easy to comprehend.

Gary Garland put my family at ease when we had to do some estate planning. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, organized and trustworthy and was able to explain everything in language a layperson could understand. I would recommend him to anyone and would use him again in a heartbeat.
