I had an excellent experience working with the Covert firm for my mother’s estate probate. I initially found him online, I called him and a few others. I had the pleasure of talking with Chris, and decided to go with them. They were helpful, kept me informed about all procedures and needing any new information from me. It turned out to be a longer process because of Covid-19 , mostly hurry up and wait for the courts. I then had issues with a relative that further delayed things, so I had a probate case for 4.5 years. Neil’s son Chris is excellent in the office, I enjoyed dealing with him by phone or email. I highly recommend!

Highly recommend Neil Covert Law Office
The Covert Team came highly recommended. From start to finish, they were professional and responsive. Being a continent and 3 time zones apart should have been challenging, but it wasn't an issue. They never made me feel like I was asking a silly question or taking too much of their time. Chris always made it clear that I could call any time and ask any question or ask for clarification. Probate closed as scheduled, and the entire process was painless, thanks to their expertise. I also highly recommend Neil and his staff!
