I was referred to Attorney Cramer by another firm I found online because I need advice on how to protect my mother's assets from unscrupulous con artists. He gave me a variety of options when I consulted with him, and he very clearly and simply explained the benefits and drawbacks of each.
I decided to have him create a trust for my mother, and although she was skeptical about the process, he won her confidence right away in our first meeting.
He was thorough, clear, and made sure to honor all my mothers requests. He even worked with her financial advisor and created the best option for her based on the total picture of her situation. Attorney Cramer and his entire staff made both of us feel very valued, and took the time to answer all our questions and explain everything that was involved. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ethical, conscientious professional who can explain legalese to the rest of us!

Jeff is a highly respected attorney in the estate planning community. His philosophical approach to estate planning is one that is focused on deep relationships and attention to detail, which all help to ensure that his client's plans meet their objectives and goals. I highly recommend Jeff because you can expect compassionate and thorough counseling.

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.
