Very professional, efficient and easy to work with
My wife and I were planning a trip out of town by ourselves and realized we had not updated our wills or trust in 20 years (from other state). During that time we had more kids and many changes. Before our trip, we wanted to get all new estate documents done to protect our children. The trip was three weeks away and I searched for referrals from friends and couldn't find someone who seemed solid and could produce a new trust, wills and other documents that fast. I found Jane on this site and contacted her. Within two weeks, we were in her office signing the documents that met all of our needs perfectly. She kept in constant touch throughout the process and made changes as we asked specific questions. Jane was very professional and made it an easy experience.
