Mr. Carpenter is one of the first attorneys I have met who doesn't make me feel dumb. He is not condescending, but is freindly and caring. He was very knowledgable and helped me decide how to handle some complicated family questions in my will and trust. I have recommended him to friends and feel good about the other people in the firm also. They treated me like family.

Mr. Carpenter drafted excellent last will and testament, family trust, living will, and power of attorney documents for my wife and me. (I also happen to be an attorney.) Mr. Carpenter was referred to us by our retirement investment planning expert. We are very glad that we engaged Mr. Carpenter to take care of our estate planning needs.

I found Attorney Stephen Carpenter by doing a google search.
I am from CO and needed an attorney to prepare legal documents for my Mom, who resides in Knoxville.
Lorie, the legal assistant, answered the phone when I made the initial call. She was very professional, very kind and took the time to answer all my questions. She was very knowledgeable. I felt very confident about choosing this law office after speaking with Lorie.
The day of our appointment, (2/16/15), the weather turned to snow and sleet. The roads were deteriorating quickly. Despite the inclement weather, Lorie and Stephen did not cancel our appointment.
My mother and I met with Attorney Stephen Carpenter. He listened intently to our needs, he looked over documents we brought and made recommendations. We felt very comfortable with Stephen, he was very easy to talk with. My Mom is quite elderly and not easy to communicate with, due to hearing deficits. . Stephen spoke directly to her in a manner that she could understand. . We felt very confident with Stephen.
I liked that he spoke with confidence when making recommendations or answering our questions. It certainly reinforced to me that we had chosen the correct attorney.
After our appointment, Stephen went above and beyond by looking up the deed to my Mom's house in MI. This was something I was going to do, but he took it upon himself to do for us. We were very grateful.
I would recommend Stephen Carpenter.
We found the fees to be very reasonable.
