Was a lifesaver to my estate issues
It has been a few years but I first consulted Kaitlyn to help close out a deceased parent's estate. What was expected originally to be a simple process turned into a very lengthy ordeal filled with all types of unexpected legal challenges due to circumstances we didn't expect. I was so glad I hired Kaitlyn for this. She fought for us every step of the way, helped us avoid expensive issues and liability, and overall gave me the confidence I could at least sleep at night during what was a stressful situation. When everything was finally closed out it was an incredible relief and the outcome she was able to achieve exceeded my expectations more than I could ever expect. I don't write reviews for legal services much but definitely wanted to leave one. Would highly recommend this attorney.

Great service
Katie helped me close out my mother’s estate after we found a bank account that I knew nothing about. She’s extremely efficient, kept me informed all along the way and made it a very simple process.

She’s the best!
Katie was so prepared and thorough when discussing and planning our estate and guardianship of our child. She thought of every detail and provided suggestions when we were conflicted making certain decisions. She made sure we understood what would happen to our child and estate in the event of our death. Her knowledge, honestly and guidance during the entire process made talking about a difficult matter much easier. We feel at peace knowing our affairs are in order!

Fast, dependable and holds the line
Kaitlyn was on top of the letters I needed. She went above and beyond in her research and made me feel like my issue would be taken care in her hands. She’s tremendous and I’ll not go to anyone else ever again.

Outstanding Presentation - Thank You
We greatly appreciate Katie taking the time to come and speak with our brokerage. She is an outstanding public speaker and made her presentation very accessible for all of us in the audience. The PowerPoint was wonderful and went very well with her talking points. She is a true professional! She was very knowledgeable and was able to confidently answer all of our questions (and believe me, we had a ton! We are Realtors!) Katie made a great impression on us and there is zero doubt that I will be working with her in the future to help plan my estate. She was kind, friendly, and very thorough with her presentation. All around, she did an excellent job and all of us left the presentation with more knowledge than we entered with. When that happens we say that, “Katie made us all better.” We greatly appreciate this session and we thank the firm for finding exceptional associates like Katie. Thanks again. I look forward to working with your company, and Katie, in the future.
