Organized, thorough, patient and timely
Sherri Stinson worked with my husband and me to update our old wills and to create living wills for the first time. She was very thorough, gave clear advice, and has a nice way of streamlining the process so that we were able to complete everything within just a few weeks. She was patient and took the time needed to answer all our questions.

Review of Sherri Stinson, Esq
Sherri Stinson was the attorney who helped my brother and me settle the estate of our late uncle. She made this difficult time for us much easier. She was extraordinary! Not only was she professional, she was patient, tactful, and kind. A very sharp lady! Worth every penny she was paid! Coming from a family of attorneys, we were very impressed. She's Awesome!
