Sarah Clingman's office handled probate matters after my father passed. They were thorough, diligent, and truly lifted the burden off of my shoulders (as personal representative for his estate.). She also was beyond helpful in planning for my disabled sisters future needs, and pointed ou things I never would have thought mattered before. I highly recommend!!!!

She said my charges to reopen an estate would be around $2,000. To $2.500. She charged me more than $12,000. And never gave me a clue the bill was going up! She did not let me know when funds were received and she tried to hold back funds for taxes. I did not have a happy experience.
