Above and Beyond!
I can not thank Ann enough for all her hard work and patience! The only regret I have is not hiring Ann from the start! She really has been such a delight and a relief for me, more than you could know. Ann went beyond her professionalism and experience, she honestly cared and wanted to help me get out of this huge mess. Ann went beyond just practicing Law to applying her heart in your work.This is why I will forever recommend her!

Makes an awkward discussion easy
Ann did an amazing job making the will process simple and straightforward. Her turn around time was quick which is unheard of these days! No one wants to think about dying, but Ann makes the process painless.

Highly Recommend!
Ann was enthusiastically recommended by another attorney to assist me with a business partnership dispute. Upon first meeting, I immediately found Ann to be professional, intelligent, and warmly personable. She was tremendously conscientious in comprehensively reviewing and understanding a complex set of agreements, as well as the multifaceted nature of the business structure, and in concisely addressing the matters at hand in their legal context. She adeptly comprehended and counseled me on the broad and specific implications relative to the dispute, and my possible legal options. Ann was also very open to my input and addressed my questions and concerns patiently, and was very accessible and flexible with her time throughout the process. Ann was a faithful and energetic advocate and representative of my interest, and she was consistently patient, responsive and proactive in effecting an expedited resolution. I would certainly work with Ann again and would recommend her highly.

Writing a Will? I highly recommend Ann Grier.
Ann helped me in writing a will. Her kind demeanor, patient counsel, and efficient follow-up was really all you could ask for in the process. No question was unreasonable, no detail was missed. I would recommend her whole-heartedly. It’s a lifetime that you discuss, and she handled everything superbly in my book.
