I attended an Estate Planning Workshop and was extremely impressed with Graves Theus, Jr., Attorney and Staff. The entire staff made every step of this process very easy. Everyone in the Theus Office were focused on my goals.

Estate Planning - It’s A Must
The Theus Law Offices’ Family Estate Planning is a must from my perspective. I had recently lost my dad when I decide to attend the in-person Workshop at the time. My dad and I had attended a similar workshop some four (4) years prior but my dad didn’t elect at the time to move forward. I so wished that he (my dad) had done so because now I am helping my mom go through the Succession/Probate steps with a lawyer currently. If you or your loved ones haven’t made this decision with Estate Planning, I would strongly encourage you to attend this web-based workshop/webinar. Graves Theus is a great attorney to go with for this important step in you and your family’s planning for the future in many, many ways!!!

Highly recommend!
Attorney Graves Theus and his staff at the Theus Law Offices provided excellent and quality service. The firm was invested in me and met all my needs. They were easily accessible, got back to me very quickly, and all proceedings were done in a very timely manner. Mr. Theus and his staff all produced the qualities that anyone would want when hiring an estate attorney. I can't recommend this office high enough.

Graves theus
Graves was outstanding. He was always one step ahead of us and 5steps of the opposing lawyer. He made himself readily availabe to us. Very attentive to what I wanted and offered very helpful advice graves is extremely smart and did lots of reading and digging to find answers to our case. He immediately found info that we had missed. We won the case and were most satisfied and pleased with his work
