  • Rick L. Law

    I like Rima Ports and I know that she is an excellent estate planning attorney. The reason that I know this is that I too am an estate planning attorney. We engaged Rima to represent my wife, Rose and me for our estate plan. She is prompt, pleasant, and personable. Rick L Law, Law ElderLaw, LLP
