What a pleasure to work with....
I hired Ms. Jones to provide advice in estate planning and to handle a house closing. I can be very particular in terms of the what I expect in the quality of services and knowledge that people I hire offer. I never felt rushed. She communicates very well, and is very easy to work with. On my work, she paid excellent attention to detail, was knowledgeable in her subject area, was responsive to my calls, texts, and emails, was cost effective, and most important executed my work flawlessly and in a timely manner. I feel she provided excellent service and value, I recommend her very highly, and now consider her to be a very important resource for my family.
