Highly Recommend
Gant McCloud is not only a highly credentialed estate planning attorney, he is also diligent, responsive, and kind, and we couldn’t be happier to see him starting his own law practice. Gant worked with us for over two years to rewrite two family trusts for a mentally ill family member that had originally been written in Massachusetts. He was extraordinarily patient and supportive as we asked many (many, many) detailed questions and micro-managed the entire rewrite through many (many, many) iterations as we repeatedly changed our minds along the way. About halfway through the process, the grantor was rushed to the hospital and his prognosis was uncertain. Gant pulled out all the stops to incorporate numerous pending changes and rushed to the hospital the next afternoon to execute the trusts. We cannot thank him enough for seeing us through and we highly commend him , most especially to anyone in need of expertise for complex estate planning.

Excellent Estate, Tax, and Business Succession Planning
I am an orthodontist with 3 corporations, real-estate, and a family. I searched for an attorney with experience in estate planning, taxation, trusts, and business succession. Gant McCloud had all of these qualifications and is not only dual degreed, but also holds a Master’s in Taxation. He is professional, diligent, and responsive. He is easy-going and has a unique ability to explain complex matters in simple terms. Gant gave me trustworthy information and sound recommendations.

Gant was retained to redo our wills ,trusts, living will, power of attorney etc. as we had relocated to Florida. From the moment we met him, we knew we had chosen an excellent attorney who was well versed in estate planning. Gant was methodical, and patient in explaining all the intricacies involved in properly preparing these documents. I would highly recommend him.
