  • Stephen Alan Sauer

    I endorse this lawyer. I am a lawyer in Memphis, TN, but I do not practice Estate Planning or Probate Law. I refer all questions relating to that area of law to Attorney Cardwell. He was the attorney for my grandparents estate (a decent size estate) and our family was very pleased with his work. He is currently working on a will for my mother. If you have need for a probate or estate planning lawyer, you would be well served to hire Attorney Cardwell.
