Greeson Living Trust
Paul helped us prepare for the future by getting our estate into a Living Trust. He was always prompt, thorough, helpful, personable, kind, and an empathizer I felt. He won our trust by his professional manner and his eagerness to help us in any way he could. He treated us as friends.

Words can never express my gratitude. Paul provided professional assistance for my parents and my grandmother. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with my responsibilities and he put everything into place for me.

Will Update
After attending an informational seminar with Cheryl David my wife and I decided to pursue updating our previous will. We met Paul as part of our first session and he was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. His review of the final papers and process was once again very complete and he encouraged and answered all of our questions. Paul deserves and has earned our highest recommendation!

Very Helpful
Paul was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of applying for Medicaid and providing the necessary documentation for approval. He made the process as stress free as possible because he was always so diligent about staying on top of things and keeping me informed. Paul took the time to answer my questions and assisted me with every step of the process. I had an excellent experience.

Excellent service
Paul helped worked with us to establish our Living Wills, Powers of Attorney and Healthcare Powers of attorney, and Guardianship documents for our young child. He guided us through the process over the course of 2 in-person meetings and made it practically stress-free.

Excellent Attorney and Person
My wife and I are totally satisfied with the work and the speed of the work on our will's that Paul did for us. We gladly rate him at the top of the list of our experiences with other attorney's in and out of his field. A person that we like very much and he works for a class firm. We have recommended him to a friend and will again when the subject of attorneys comes up in his field of work.

Very good experience!
Paul helped my wife and I put together a will package. We had an existing NY state will which was way out of date, including the fact that we now have grandchildren. Paul advised us on the best combination of documents for our case, here in NC and with our changed circumstances, and gave very good (and understandable) advice as to how to set things up. I felt very confident working with Paul, he has a very good level of knowledge, answered questions and explained the options well, and made common sense reccomendations. He is very professional and friendly to work with.

Thank you Paul!
Paul was quick to respond to my inquiry for legal advice. His response was detailed, his advice was apt, and he himself was friendly and professional. Although my inquiry was not about estate planning or wills, he was very knowledgeable. Where he lacked all of the appropriate information, he referred me to someone who did. Would highly recommend.

Will/Estate Planning/Living Will
Paul was very easy to work with. This was my first experience of hiring an attorney (other than closing on my home), and he was very patient with my many questions.

Estate planning sessions
My husband and I were very pleased with Paul's legal advice, the documents he prepared for us, and the legal fees charged. I would definitely recommend him to our friends.

Paul is 'The Man'
My husband and I had decided it was time to start estate planning. I had contacted other law firms and some even wanted us to sit through a two hour estate planning class?! With my husband's schedule we didn't have time for that. Paul was fast but thorough in dealing with our needs. I know our wills were NOT the easiest but Paul had no trouble with them at all. From first contact to finished product it was less then a week and that was because he was waiting on us to get our information together! I could not be more happy with the outcome. I would absolutely recommend Paul for your estate planning.. without reservation. He is professional and friendly.. a combo you don't see in a lot of lawyers.

Help with my mother's estate
After my mother's passing, I was being named executor of her estate. I was overwhelmed with all the legalities of this position and had no idea what to do. But I hired Mr. Zucchino and he very patiently and thoroughly guided me through the process. He very clearly answered any question I had about my mother's estate. I am very thankful for his help and I could never have done this by myself.
