Excellence and Compassion in Estate Planning & Probate
“When I refer clients to Nancy Choate, I do so with complete confidence. I know that my clients’ legal needs will be well met by a competent, caring, and extremely knowledgeable attorney. Nancy has the unique ability to present complex legal concepts on estates, wills, trusts, elder care, etc. in terms that my clients easily understand. While the estate planning and probate processes can be very emotionally challenging, Nancy serves as a compassionate, professional guide. The experiences that my clients and I have had in working with Nancy can be summed up in one word: EXCELLENCE!” Robert A. Caldwell, CPA Jackson, TN
