I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Kempson. So patient with my many, many often repeated questions. I was so stressed trying to figure how best to deal with my investments as I have no children to leave them to. As an animal lover I wanted to divide my estate among many animal rescue groups while also leaving some to family and friends. He came up with suggestions that have allowed me to feel at peace with what happens to a lifetime of very hard work. His assistant Krystal was wonderful also. What started out as being a very stressful undertaking for me ended up being a very positive experience thanks to them. Considering the amount of their time I took up making sure I understood all the legal ramifications of my decisions, I feel that what I was charged was a VERY kind fee. I recommended them to my father as he needed to update his estate also. He felt just as I did - we could not have picked a better attorney.
