  • Scott Allen Williams

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Jeff for many years through our association with the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys. I have also worked with him on a number of estate planning matters with our clients who are Florida residents. Jeff has consistently impressed me with the caring and compassionate manner in which he counsels and advises his clients. He has a strong command of technical legal estate planning concepts and is most effective in explaining complex legal concepts to his clients in easy to understand terms. Jeff is committed to creating estate plans that achieve his clients' objectives and is willing to explore non-traditional planning philosophies designed to achieve the highest rate of planning success. His practice is highly organized and systematized to ensure each client receives the highest level of client service. I have great respect for Jeff and highly endorse him.
