Superb Attorney!
About 5 years ago, I needed competent legal advise for a complete reassessment of my will and estate planning. I met Vincent B ("Chip") LoCoco through his attorney father, who was assisting me in other areas. I was impressed with Chip's expertise in all matters of estate planning. Listening (to another) can seem like a lost art. Chip listens carefully to my needs and concerns, and we engage in conversations that are essential to both of us. Chip is an expert in wills and estate planning. He is compassionate, ethical, and patient. His love and devotion for his family (parents, wife, children, and others) impacts his interaction with clients. Vincent B "Chip" LoCoco has my highest recommendation!

Excellent Service
Mr. LoCoco handled questions we had regarding elder law and prepared appropriate documents for our family. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and reasonably priced. We would feel very comfortable recommending him to friends and family.
