Estate Planning Experience
I had the opportunity to work with Amy on Estate Planning law, documents for Financial Powers of Attorney, Health Care Powers of Attorney/Advanced Care Planning, Wills and Trusts. She did a fabulous job for Heartfelt Celebrations, an end-of-life employee benefit provider. In addition to all of the estate planning documents, she helped develop our privacy policy, terms of use, client contracts and much more. I would highly recommend Amy for anyone needing help in these areas.

Consultant for estate planning
I have had Amy provide training for families who have children with disabilities thinking about estate planning for their child. This is a very technical thing especially when you are talking about assuring eligibility for public programs. Amy was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to present the information in a way that parents understood what kind of things they had to plan for when thinking about their child moving towards adulthood. I would recommend her based upon this experience. I feel she would be able to relate to parents and really help them understand the complicated world of estate planning.

Awesome!
Amy kept on top of everything during a struggle with a relative over an inheritance. She was compassionate and went over and above for us. I would definitely recommend her to assist with your probate needs. She did an excellent job for us!
