Thorough, Careful, and Competent
Jeremy interviewed us thoroughly about our needs, interests, and goals. He reviewed the purpose of each of the documents he would prepare for us and then went over them carefully before we signed. We were very pleased with Jeremy's professionalism and personal attention. Highly recommended.

Thoughtful, Thorough, so we're thankful!
Jeremy is meticulous and courteous. We worked with him to prepare a Living Trust. He walked us through the process, made sure we understood what we were doing, and did so in a timely manner. And perhaps most importantly, he treated us with great care and respect. We trust him deeply.

Professional, Prompt, Knowledgeable
Jeremy has provided legal services for my wife and me on several occasions. In every instance he has been professional, prompt, and knowledgeable. He has helped us in estate planning by providing wills, power of attorneys, and advanced medical directives. With his expert knowledge of the relevant legals requirements, he has given us wise counsel, but always in way that respects our own wishes and is tailored to our unique needs. Jeremy has also done work for us related to the constitution of an LLC. He walked us through the necessary steps and handled all of the legal requirements. His work was done quickly so no time was lost. His office is well-organized and the work to be done is clearly communicated ahead of time. Questions that arise along the way are answered patiently and with a depth of insight. It can be hard to find a lawyer who is at once professional and personable, but Jeremy is that rare attorney.

Excellent lawyer, highly recommend
I hired Jeremy Pryor to assist with estate planning and creation a will. He was courteous, knowledgeable, thorough, and very professional throughout the process. I have a historical phobia of lawyers and legal transactions, and Jeremy made the entire process both pain free, and appropriately educational. He was also efficient, and respectful of my time when scheduling face to face meetings.

estate planning portfolio
I was impressed with his presentation at the estate planning seminar that addressed some of my needs to overhaul an old will. Upon meeting Jeremy, we discussed the specific concerns I had to for an easy transferal of my holdings over to my son. He recommended a living trust and in terms I understood, explained what it would do for my family upon my death. The final document was beyond what I had envisioned with all parts laid out in clear language specific to each need. I love the notebook, its format and content. Its easy to find everything so that my heir can easily handle my estate someday. Jeremy answered every question(even the dumb ones) patiently and clearly. I appreciate his expertise, knowledge and skill upon handling my legal needs in a comfortable, friendly manner. I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to use his services for any future legal issues.
