  • Kyle E. Krull

    I know Steve (aka Gary Stephen Wiggins) personally and by reputation, having worked together at a recent estate planning conference. While he is an excellent estate planning attorney, I also am impressed with his strong litigation skills and instincts. Why? Every estate plan bears the potential seeds of future discontent among heirs. Steve has a unique ability to see beyond the planning present to that administering future. As a result, Steve strategically designs his estate plans "with the end in mind." I can, without reservation, recommend and endorse Steve Wiggins.
