I highly endorse Letha, both for her technical skills, and for her compassion for clients and the effort she puts into each her work for each client. She is skilled both in tax planning and planning for non-taxable estates that may require governmental benefits such as medicaid and VA payments. Letha is also licensed in Virginia, so she works in both Virginia and North Carolina, and now lives on the outer banks of North Carolina. I would send my clients, even my parents, to her without hesitation.
