My sister and I came to Mrs Fox at one of the most devastating times in our lives. Mrs Fox and her legal staff we're compassionate and caring. They were professional and in taking all the legal worries out of our hands we will able to care for our brother. We felt confident with them never worried about our legal woes. They advise you, consult and counsel you, and even comfort you. If I had a problem, they always responded promptly. From day one, even after the loss of our brother, through all that follows They walk hand in hand with you. Thank you Mrs Fox , Melissa. And all her staff.

Ms. Tena Fox and company has provided excellent service with my probate case. We are still in the process but I am extremely satisfied with the following points below -
- Always available and helpful. When I call for questions/updates, the attorney's office always takes each of my calls and provides immediate assistance. Additionally, my attorney has always encouraged me to call or visit (scheduled) any time.
- Clearly identifies their tasks/actions they will perform and my tasks/actions
- Frequent updates and constant contact with me on probate updates and necessary actions
- Professional and courteous
- Motivated, Pro-active, and Responsive. Ms. Tena Fox is on top of things and I feel she works hard on my behalf
- My previous experience with hiring a (different) probate attorney was difficult and since hiring Ms. Tena Fox I have had a much better experience and great results!

There are no words to describe our experience with this wonderful human being but I will do my best.
My husband's father passed away unexpectedly and things were an absolute messy nightmare. He left behind no will, no life insurance, no beneficiaries on bank accounts, an incapacitated wife in a nursing home (my mother in law), and a veritable Medicaid nightmare. We were totally lost. We were beside ourselves with not only grief but with worry over what would happen if we couldn't do something, and fast! We were also concerned about cost, we are working people not millionaires.
We were actually referred to another lawyer who immediately recognized that our case needed a special type of law. He called Tena, she saw us that same day, within 1 hour of the other lawyer's call.
Tena sat down with us for a good 2 hours going over what had happened, what we needed, and the massive amount of disorganized paperwork we brought with us. Again, we were totally lost and to be honest, scared that we could not accomplish what needed to be done. Tena was very reassuring and told us that it would take time but that it could be done. Ahhh.. we found a bright shining light in a dark moment.
She has turned out to be one of the sweetest, most intelligent individuals I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She has been my savior. She has done everything from attending a medicaid hearing with me for support, arranging emergent hearings with the court when normally it couldn't be done, and taking the time to sit and explain every little thing and answering every silly question I could think of. And believe me when I say, those things are only a minuscule drop in the bucket of everything she has managed to accomplish during this arduous journey. She even cleared an entire morning's schedule to help me fill out some government paperwork that I just didn't understand! Who does that?! SHE DID!
There were several situations that arose during our ordeal that had me in a total panic. Tena would take the time to alleviate my fears, call me and say, "Don't panic until I say panic". Luckily she never said it was time to panic. LOL!
My husband, his family, and I, all are so very appreciative of her compassion, her knowledge, and her attention to details. Like I said, we just can't say enough. I am actually getting emotional while writing this, that's how much she means to us. I feel like she is a friend now, not just a hired attorney (even though we don't socialize outside of our attorney/ client world). We love her and everything she seems to stand for.
I believe it is note worthy that her staff has been an absolute comforting wonder as well, everyone has treated us with respect and compassion.
If you need a lawyer, I PROMISE YOU... you will NOT be disappointed. She deserves 10 thumbs up!

I have known Tena for several years. On several occasions, she has assisted me with various probate issues. I greatly appreciate her extensive knowledge and her willingness to share it with fellow attorneys. I strongly recommend her!
