The One You Can Trust
I asked to meet with Randy because he created a trust for a friend of mine. I was impressed with his professionalism and his concern to do what is best for his clients. I have referred him to many other people since he created my trust.

Excellent Attorney
I have had the pleasure of working with Randy Smith for over 10 years on all of my legal needs. Randy has handled all of my personal and professional matters from simple telephone questions to a complete estate plan. Always timely and professional. I can see no reason that I would ever seek a different attorney. 100% satisfied and I would highly recommend to anyone.

Estate Planning Made Simple
My husband and I have 5 children from previous marriages and wanted to ensure our marital property would go first to the surviving spouse then be divided equally among the surviving children once both of us are gone. Randy helped educate us in the various options available, the pros and cons of each option, drafted all of the documents, recorded necessary documents and provided everything we needed to notify all of our account holders and provide detailed information to our trustees. His office has promptly responded when I've asked them to send documents directly to financial institutions when I did not have correct documentation with me. He also set up our medical directives, which gratefully we have not needed to use.
