Spraker
I am a CPA and a CFP. I recommend clients frequently to Lynne. She has always exhibited all of the above attributes to the highest degree. In addition she always seems to take a personal interest in her clients. She also has prepared all of my personal legal documents. There are really not enough good things to sat about her.

We highly recommend Lynne Wilkinson Spraker
Lynne Wilkinson Spraker has been our attorney for several years. She has handled the estate settlement of two family members. In both instances she exhibited expertise, dignity and professionalism. She was always responsive to our questions and was able to relieve most of the stress in dealing with such situations. Her advice was pertinent and thorough. She has also prepared our Last Wills and Testaments to include Power of Attorney and Health Care Surrogate. This also was a pleasant and easy process for us to go through. We highly recommend Lynne and her services and would have no hesitation in retaining her again should the need arise.

Wills, Trusts, and Estates
I was looking for an attorney to help me with my estate planning. I found a solid professional that also turned out to be a warm and caring person. Ms Spraker discussed my needs, offering alternatives and suggestions that indicated her adept thoughtfulness. The spent time was never a problem and her outgoing personality made me feel more a friend than a client. She was always open to my questions, messaging my requests with understanding and sound advice. It's easy to recommend this responsible and excellent communicator who also listens.

Look no further, Lynne Spraker is superb.
If you look up Estate Planning, Trust Attorney in Wikipedia, Lynne Spraker's picture will be there. She is particularly skillful in dealing with complex casework whether in Martin County, FL or in New York. When I became Suddenly Single, Ms. Spraker was highly professional and knowledgable. You shouldn't hire anyone else! Within my first telephone call to her office, I was scheduled for a personal consultation promptly. And that pace continued with her excellent guidance. Lynne is particularly smart about giving recommendations for your situation and for safeguarding your interests.

Lynne Spraker: legally effective documents in consideration of finances and personal affairs
I’ve heard horror stories about invalid Wills and poorly drawn documents that failed to work the way the person intended. So even though I’m single with no children, I sought someone who would work WITH ME, helping me to consider alternatives for, to think through, and to set up legally effective arrangements. On a financial side I sought someone who would advise me about my home, my investments and other property in the event of mental disability and eventual death. I needed help to minimize my potential taxes and fees as well as understand my digital assets. On the personal side, I wanted to make sure if I was unable to give the directions, someone I’d select would do that for me, and would know when I would want heroic measures and when I would prefer they pull the plug. Ten years ago I found Lynne Spraker to be an experienced and respected estate-planning attorney. Lynne gave me the direction I needed, having knowledge of law, sound judgment and logical analytical and reasoning skills. Since creating the documents, she has helped me maintain and update them. I have benefited from her project management, attention to detail and proactive approach. Lynne Spraker is a good listener and her collaborative skills in multi-party work are outstanding. Also I’m impressed that she gives back to our community in many civic and charitable activities.
