Yvette made the whole process stress-free!
My husband and I had Yvette do our Estate Planning documents a few years ago. I must say it was something we were dreading, but we were surprised how stress-free Yvette made the whole process. We have made a few revisions since our initial meeting and there is never a problem getting in contact with her. When I leave a message she always calls me back within a few hours!

Professional, Knowledgeable, and Courteous Law Firm in Bucks County, PA
Yvette has an extensive background in corporate law where her knowledge was manifest in the business contracts she developed for my company. I was so impressed with the professional level of service from Yvette and her staff that I decided to return. Now I have a will along with my estate planning that was developed again with professionalism and attention to detail. I recommend this firm and I plan to continue my business with them in the future.

Trustworthy, sensitive, clarifies jargon well.
Yvette took the fear out of the process of Estate Planning for us. We have three children, and a large family, and Yvette helped us stay focused on who and what would be best for our children. She has also been sensitive to family difficulties with the loss of my father. Her sensitive and non-judgmental personality makes this process very clear and as efficient as possible.
