Excellent attorney
I had lost my mom last year. Very long story short. I filed here in Texas when it should have been Florida. He went above and beyond to get me set up and told me what I need to do. I went to him to do our wills and it was such an amazing experience. No hassle and he was incredibly thorough with everything. Very patient and understanding attorney. I highly recommend Glenn Thames for any wills or issues you need.

Estate Planning
My husband and I recently used Glenn for our estate planning. He was thorough, kind, and timely. He made this daunting task easy for us to understand. I would highly recommend his services to anyone. Thank you for taking such great care of us.

Very informative
My wife and I used Glenn Thames this past spring to do our first wills and other necessary documents. As this was all new to us we both found it very refreshing to have someone that took the time to call/meet with us and go over and explain everything, even after normal hours to accommodate our schedules. I would recommend Glenn to any of my friends and family and will be using him in the future if the opportunity presents itself.

Excellent Lawyer
Glenn prepared a will and other estate planning documents for my wife and me. Glenn was able to help me structure my assets (including my family business) to minimize tax consequences and insure my heirs are treated fairly. Glenn does a great job explaining complicated legal issues in a way that is simple to understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for help with estate planning, whether your situation is complicated like mine or simple.

A Professional and Trustworthy Lawyer
I met Glenn when a close friend decided to leave me in charge of her complex estate. Since then, he has guided me every step of the way. Glenn has been very open and honest with me. He has kept me informed of every detail of the trust. He is very professional and responsive. So, when my husband and I decided to update our estate plan, we turned to Glenn. He was very thorough and attentive to details. Glenn is very personable and easy to work with.
