Will and trust agreements
Jim was very responsive to us and was willing to travel to my mother-in-law's apartment to spare her the travel. He was patient as we worked to explain things to her (she's 94, deaf and nearly blind). The documents were not complex, but they are well-done and Jim answered all our questions.

Deed correction
I needed to have a name correction made on a forty year old deed. Name changed to the correct legal name of the owner. Process was smooth and completed in less than a week with all documents processed and recorded to my satisfaction and the satisfaction of the Recorder of Deeds.

Mr. Schleiffarth was outstanding! Bringing a new business to the State of Missouri was a learning experience for us. Mr. Schleiffarth gave us great advise and assisted us in many different areas. I truly appreciated his accessibility and willingness to help. Mr. Schleiffarth was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him.
