Excellent Estate Planning
My husband and I were looking to create an estate plan once our daughter was born. We recognized the need for a will, but after further education we needed a Trust as well. Ms. Iaria and her team at Lillig & Thorsness helped us navigate the process. They explained each step thoroughly, and I felt confident and comfortable with them during the process. I had many follow up questions and Angela was always available to answer them without hesitation.

I am so grateful to have worked with her during this time. She made the process smooth, easy to understand, and always had my best interest at heart.
