Great experience!
My family and I hired Michelle to help us through my mother's estate. When my father died years prior, we didn't have to do anything because everything went to my mom, so this was all completely new to us. We have heard horror stories about probate, but Michelle was great. She really helped to explain the process to all of us and every time we had a question, she was prompt, polite and explained everything thoroughly and in a way that was easy to understand. We never felt rushed when talking to Michelle. She made sure we were kept in the loop throughout the whole estate. Her paralegal Patti was also fantastic! Michelle and her office made probate as painless as possible. I would highly recommend working with her and the Hoyt & Bryan office!

Compassionate, Knowledgable and Patient
My Husband and I hired Michelle to review our old estate plan and update it. Michelle took the time to explain the process thoroughly and answered all of our questions (some multiple times) to ensure that we understand how everything worked. She was such a pleasure to work with that when my sister passed away the next year, we went back to Michelle to handle her estate. Michelle again took as much time as we needed to explain the probate process and helped my siblings and I through it every step of the way. Michelle and her team were excellent. I have recommended her to several friends, and they have all been very pleased with Michelle's patient and kind attitude, and thoroughness with helping them through the estate planning/probate process.

I needed an attorney to create a Power of Attorney as well as other legal matters regarding my Estate. Michelle Adams was recommended to me by my daughter. Since my husband passed away, I had never met with an attorney and didn't think I would be able to understand the process. I was wrong. Ms Adams was the perfect person to help. She was very knowledgeable regarding Estate planning and took the time to explain in detail exactly what I needed to protect me and my children in the event something were to happen to me. She even offered to meet with my children to review the details of the plan. Ms Adam's knowledge, kindness and extreme patience made this entire process easy. Thank you Michelle!

Poor service
Michelle has failed to promptly attend to our family's probate issues. It has been more than a year since my father-in-law passed and Michelle fails to promptly contact our family when she is called concerning the numerous delays. It appears that Michelle may not know what she is doing and stumbles through the process.
