Real Estate Assistance
Attorney Linn asked me to comment on his recent assistance with my real estate. I needed to remove my spouse from the deed on our home after her death. The services Attorney Linn provided were affordable and the attention I received was extraordinary. I highly recommend his services and the services of his firm. Everyone I spoke with was helpful and pleasant to work with.

Estate Planning
Mr. Linn helped my parents with some estate planning documents that affected their end of life decisions and also some property transfer choices. I highly recommend Mr. Linn for his ability to explain choices in these issues and the effects they have on a person's financial/familial situation, and his willingness to spend the time to ensure his older client's understood the choices and the corresponding outcomes regarding each decision. I highly recommend Mr. Linn for estate planning needs.

A port in the storm
It is never easy to lose most everything and have to go through the process of Chapter 7. Matt was wonderful in answering all of our questions and making the process as painless as possible. I would recommend him to anyone.
