Estate Planning
Mr. Peck is an outstanding attorney. Our family hired him to do several trusts and estate planning. His personalization and attention to detail is very impressive. But, what sets him apart from everyone is his accessibility and personal interest in his clients. He truly cares about making sure his clients are thoroughly taken care of. He would highly recommend him.

Urgent Planning Required
We were planning an extended foreign trip and had not done proper estate planning. We called Steven and he squeezed us into his schedule for an initial, intensive, consultation. During this extended meeting he was able to determine exactly our plan required. Due to the complexity of the trusts and other documents needed, he and his associate worked over the weekend to finish the full set of trusts, wills, powers of attorney for health care, living will, and a full set of durable powers of attorney. He also detailed how to have all of our property re-titled so it could be transferred to the trusts. Estate planning can be complex so we were happy we were able to find a very knowledgeable specialist in estate and tax law. We couldn't be happier that we found him.
