Great to work with
She went above and beyond a typical consultation and advised me how best to proceed through a complex case. And when she felt I didn't need an attorney and could handle it myself, she told me so. Would definitely use her services again.

I needed an advanced directive and power of attorney. Ms. Legall provided advice about the purpose and content of each document. After drafting these documents, she arranged the signing and certification. All these services were provided at a reasonable cost.
