Simply Phenominal From Start To Finish!
Words cannot describe how grateful I am for Attorney Terrence Quinn and TGQ Law for taking on my very difficult case. After being appointed for only 3 days, I had lost guardianship and conservatorship of my father. That fast, my case had gotten turned upside down. I was crushed. It was the most messiest and twisted up situation I've ever experienced, on top of having the most toughest and intimidating guardianship judge in my town. It was all because of a misunderstanding and the courts not hearing my side of the story. First thing I thought was "Only God can fix this one"! Thank God he led me to the right place. Attorney Terrence Quinn listens, he's extremely professional, he's a supportive attorney that truly cares, understands his clients, very insightful and is an expert in his field. He took on an extremely difficult case and encountered issues that no one expected and few had ever seen. He worked tirelessly to make sure that the truth was told and presented it perfectly. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Attorney Quinn fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. After our first court hearing, I was regranted full guardianship and conservatorship, thanks to him! I very much appreciate and thank attorney Terrence Quinn and attorney Laurie Brewis for all of your hard work and time you spent handling my two separate cases that were happening at the same time. My mom AND dad's. I am proud to be a TGQ Law client and highly recommend them. From my experience, just know you will be in the best hands. TGQ Law will NEVER be my first choice. They will always be my only choice.

Highly Recommended
When my husband and I decided we needed to get serious about estate planning we began looking for an estate attorney and was referred to Mr. Quinn. Not only did he put together a comprehensive plan and address all of our questions but he took the time to educate us so we could make informed decisions. His desire to help families mitigate financial loss and disharmony at a time when death of a loved one will make them vulnerable to both is very evident. He comes across as genuinely motivated by care for his client. And his services didn't stop when he handed us the work product. He remains available to answer questions and update documents as needed. His personable and responsive personality made us comfortable with the entire process and him personally. We have and will continue to refer others for his services.

Respectful listening -careful handling of awkward issues
Terrence was very thoughtful and respectful in handling my husband's discomfort with talking about wills as they connect to the inevitability of death. Also my concern that in spite of a long and happy marriage I wanted my son to manage the financial resources that would be left in my estate and Terrance handled that aspect of my trust efficiently and discretely. I also found him to be pleasant, easy going and efficient. He was willing to adjust to meet our schedule and location needs. We were very pleased.
