This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Very professional, compassionate, & competent
I engaged him when my father had passed away years ago and again when my mother passed away recently. It also involved international estate planning. Some of the forms he had done for me when my father passed away did not reap immediate benefits (quite honestly at that time, I was questioning it). However, several years later after my mom passed away, I saved a significant amount of cap gains tax because I decided to follow his advice (even if I did not completely understand his rationale at that time). He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant to deal with. Would hghly recommend him (already referred two of my friends to him).
