Great experience
We worked with Mr. Healy to set up our trust. We knew nothing about trusts, and he was very gracious to answer all our questions and help make good recommendations for our family. He explained each section of the papers we signed and answered even more questions. He was a very nice man and made us feel valued and respected. Very pleased with this experience.

Knowledgeable and Efficient!
David Healy assisted us with our trust and estate plan set up. He was very knowledgeable and made the process very simple! I would recommend anyone in need of estate and trust planning contact him first.

thanks so much!
My wife and I first hired David Healy to help us assemble our estate plan shortly after the birth of our first daughter. We recently celebrated the birth of our second daughter and hired David and his team to help us amend out estate plan to include daughter #2. They have been so helpful and gave us a lot of good things to consider when putting together our estate plan. I highly recommend David and his team.

Review of David Healy
I have found David to be very knowledgeable with estate planning and he asked us several questions we didn't think of ourselves. He was very responsive in getting back to us with phone calls and information. I have complete trust in David and would recommend him to anyone.

Professional recommendation for David Healy
David Healy is the epitome and model of what all attorneys should be. In representing me, he was responsive, always returned my calls and treated me with respect and dignity. In the rare event he was unsure of something he would take the necessary steps to conduct proper due diligence in order to provide me with answers and the best possible options available under the law. I would highly recommend David Healy in the event you should find yourself needing a knowledgeable attorney with integrity and one who will work to provide professional legal services with sound advice, a kind voice and a listening ear.

Reliable, hard working attorney in Springfield, MO
We have used David for a few items over the years, the largest being our estate plan. He spent considerable time with us reviewing all of our assets, discussing our wishes, and creating a comprehensive estate plan for us. He was very insightful, bringing to light many things we had never considered in regards to our plans and contingencies. When we had our second child he assisted us with revisions to the plan. He has always been very professional and prompt. I highly recommend David to my friends and family for all legal representation.
