Great Experience Highly Recommended Blessing To Our Family
From the moment we made the first called and spoke with Nancy and the very last paper was signed stamp and handed to us we were more than satisfied and impressed. We had a rough 6months with passing of our father my mother husband/best friend more than 50 years it was time to find a lawyer for my mom to make a will so we did not have to go through what we did with our father. From the moment with talk to Greg and Nancy they held our hand and assured us that were in good hands. Both were very professional but yet personal making you feel you were the most important. Making us very well informed of the in and out so my mom could rest assure that all her wishes were going to be made known as far as her assets, and health. It is just a pleasure to have met them. There first words were let sit down and talk and make sure we are a fit. That my mom was comfortable with them and they were comfortable with her. Well here we are will, and more was done so it show we are a fit. She is also going to use him for the closing of her rental property. He is just the type of lawyer you walk out his office saying who can I tell about him. Thanks Greg Thanks Nancy for all you've done for my mother and I and everyone you come in contact with God Bless you. Thanks Avvo you have a Excellent Lawyer listed.

Trust Fund
Greg was excellent. He walked us through the difference between a Will and a Trust. He was very informative and answered all our questions. We would recommend him to our friends and family.

review of Greg Riley
Greg Riley and his assistant Nancy made us feel at home and informed while doing a will for my wife and me. It was a pleasant experience going through the process. He explained all the details in an easy to follow manor and answered any questions that we had in detail. I recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice.

Great Experience
Greg was very professional and was able to get our wills updated in our timeframe to travel abroad. He was able to quickly adjust the standard language to fit our unique needs. Greg explains everything in easy to understand terms. We HIGHLY recommend him!

I was so blessed to have Greg Riley work with me during a very difficult season recently. He was professional and knowledgeable yet personable and caring. He took the time to research, prepare and explain so that I knew I received exceptional advice. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing trust agreements or estate planning. I look forward to working with Greg as the need arises in the future. Thank you Greg!

Professional and easy going
Greg made an extremely stressful closing into a relaxed and enjoyable experience. My lender created endless delays and Greg was professional and flexible throughout the process, keeping me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend Greg as a closing attorney.

I would highly recommend Greg Riley....
My husband and I had the opportunity to meet Greg Riley a couple of months ago. After the sudden loss of my Mom, we realized that we were very past due in getting our own will, estate and trust in order. We met with Greg and he spent as much time as we needed explaining our various options and answering our questions. He handled what can be some very tough topics with sensitivity and patience. He provided a custom solution that met with our specific situation and needs to provide for ourselves and our daughter in the future under a variety of "what if" scenarios. When our documents were complete, Greg traveled down to a convenient location for us and went through everything in detail. He even followed up several times to make sure we had all of our questions answered and had taken care of some additional items that we needed to handle separate and apart from our legal needs. I know Greg will be a great resource for us for many years to come.

Prompt, professional real estate services
As a real estate agent I always want to refer my clients to the best services available. I have had many real estate closings at Greg Riley's office for several years. He always provides professional service, answers questions that my buyers or sellers may have, and takes files from contract to closing in a timely manner. He is highly experienced and knowledgeable about real estate matters and I recommend his law office to anyone looking for real estate services.
