Knowledgeable and Efficient
We had put off our Will preparation and POA designations forever and a day. After research into credentials, we went with Bratton Law...this was the right choice! Chris is super knowledgeable, is a common presenter on estate planning and elder law (clearly knows his stuff), and made our process worry free while answering all of our questions. They also have several offices, one of which was nearby and made meeting logistically easy. I would highly recommend, and will likely be using professional services from Bratton in the future.
