Elder Estate Planning
Mr. Sperr has a very calm and helpful attitude. He has helped allay some concerns we have had in helping our parents with their estate plans after moving here from Florida . I would recommend him for your estate planning needs.

Estate plans
We just signed the estate planning documents prepared by Brad, who made the process straightforward and easy to work through. Brad was courteous, friendly, and professional. He walked us through, step-by-step, explaining in plain language to ensure that we had our wishes in place. We particularly liked that he provided all the final documents in an organized binder, including an electronic file copy. His fee was fair and reasonable. We would highly recommend Brad for estate planning document prep.

Outstanding experience.
I've been involved in setting up trusts in the past, but this was by far the best, most painless one. It was easy to get an appointment. The Estate Planning Questionnaire was fabulous. I did it in the comfort of home, on the computer. It was so easy, and I found the end product very valuable to me personally to use as a financial reference. Mr. Sperr couldn't have been nicer or more professional. He was careful to explain everything and checked to make sure I wasn't left with questions. He is going out of his way to meet a short deadline since I have to leave the state soon. I give him an A+.

Excellent job with my estate planning
Brad Sperr did an excellent job on my estate planning documents. He helped me compose a new document for my Last Will and Testament, Advance Directive for Healthcare, and Durable Power of Attorney. Mr. Sperr was very knowledgeable and thorough with the entire process. He was patient answering all my concerns and I completely trusted his expertise. I’m grateful to have hired him.

Professional, considerate, knowledgeable and helpful!!
Brad was excellent at listening effectively, communicating concisely, explaining thoroughly and following up promptly and reliably regarding our rather complex and unusual estate matter. I would recommend him to anyone seeking either full representation OR merely assistance or advisement. He seems both proficient & efficient, as well as completely trustworthy, and he was extremely helpful in accomplishing exactly what I needed him for.
