Kelton presented an organized framework to create a Trust for our estate planning needs. He packaged together all required services in order to efficiently complete the work in a timely manner. He met with us multiple times to address our needs and answer questions. When we agreed to engage his services for the entire body of work, he discounted his fees to minimize our cost, and to enhance our understanding of the finished product. He furnished both a hard copy and electronic documents for all components of the Trust. Kelton made this complex undertaking as simple, comprehensive, and affordable as anyone could expect. My wife and I recommend him for consideration in meeting your legal needs.

I consulted with mr Burgess concerning my legal difficulties concerning a physician who performed my hand surgery and the claim that was sent to my insurance carrier in which it was denied. The physician attempted to pursue me in court althouh it was quite clear that his billing department was at at fault. Mr Burgess advised me to proceed thru the proper channels within the insurance company. I contacted the insurance as advised and the claim was reprocessed. The insurance company indicated that I was not at fault and it was the doctor's billing department that was responsible for the claim not being processed correctly.

Mr. Burgess was very thorough and professional during our business meetings with him. He helped my wife and feel comfortable that when we become incapacitated or after our death, our affairs are in order. We now have peace of mind. He answered all our questions and addressed our concerns. An added bonus is his friendly and witty personality.
