Very knowledgeable
Mr. Kalamaros helped me plan my estate this past spring; He was incredibly patient and knowledgeable, and answered all my questions. Considering that estate planning is normally quite a stressful process, my affairs were put in order in a methodical and comprehensive manner that left me with very little to worry about. Mr. Kalamaros managed my estate with efficiency and professionalism at a reasonable price. Thank you, Tim!

Superb attorney!
When my material estate (and much more) was put into grave jeopardy, the first person to whom my partner turned was Tim K., and we both enjoyed much greater peace of mind as a result of his efforts. Our confidence in Tim's legal acumen helped to allay our over-many fears of worst case scenarios; moreover, his calm and affable manner was very reassuring during this period of great storm and stress in our lives. I would highly recommend this superb attorney to anyone in need of the services he provides.

Timothy Kalamarous Review
My mother had here estate with Tim. When she passed away he was very descriptive on what I needed to do to close her estate quickly and accurately. He told me what records to keep and which of my mom's outstanding expenses to take care of first. His Paralegal was very easy to work with and pleasant to talk to on the phone when needed.

Guardianship
He has been very helpful in advising me on the right way to handle my mothers financial and personal matters and her estate planning. He takes the time to answer your questions and if he is not sure he is willing to search for the correct one. I would highly recommend him.
