Doane and Doane Review
We needed to have our estate, durable power of attorney, healthcare surrogate, and living will documents recreated as we have moved to Florida from another state. We consulted with Rebecca at the recommendation of our financial consultant and then hired her firm to do the documents. All was handled very well by Rebecca and her staff who we believe have integrity and are actually kind people. We very much appreciate Rebecca's provision of additional detail in our living wills to ensure that our wishes would be understood and followed.

Great-Honest-Caring-and very Smart
Rebecca Doane has been our attorney for many years and she has been outstanding in helping us with our trust. Not only is she professional in her manner and recommendations she also has a warmth and understanding when assisting us that makes a difficult task not as difficult to complete. Rebecca gave us areas of thought to our estate planning that we would have never thought of on our own. She has become a dear friend and trusted associate. I would certainly recommend her to others and I have several times.
