I was very pleased with Mr. Cahill. He listened to me. He was courteous, thoughtful, and professional. He truly wanted to understand my needs and provide the legal documents that I needed. He did not rush me which was very important considering the critical nature of the documents I wanted him to create. He has followed up several times to make sure everything was executed as planned.

I have known Michael for many years. I knew him when he was a CPA and before he was an attorney. I find him a man of integrity. I also find him to be extremely knowledgeable in his area of practice. I would highly recommend him for estate planning and probate.
