Professional, knowledgeable and thorough
My experience (past and present) with Barlay Law Group, LLC is in the estate planning area. Estate planning is not a pleasant experience, but a necessary one. Mr. Barlay and his law group, has made it a great experience for myself and husband. He’s professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I’m looking forward to working with the Firm for my real estate business.
