Quality Elder Law Attorney
After attending a seminar on Elder Law, my husband & I decided that we needed to acquire further information for our family. We made an appointment with Keith Stevens to assist us with this task. He is an extremely professional attorney, that is personable, and has great attention to details. He provided excellent explanations and questions were always welcomed. He is an attorney that you can depend on to give you that added extra security that is important to you and your family, especially when dealing with the sensitive topic of Elder Law.

Keith made a great attorney for our trusts and wills.
Keith was a professional but very understanding. It did not matter how many questions we asked he would take the time to explain them and even put it up on the dry erase board to help us understand. Responded very well. He was polite, very knowledgeable and made sure we were following what he was explaining. I would definitely and have already recommend Keith to our family and friends. Thanks Keith

We thought Keith was excellent in explaining how the various trusts work! He even went over it several times until we had no further questions. We feel confident that our assets are secure and that everything was done properly. Thanks Keith for providing this excellent service.
