Effective and Professional
Miss Patton and her firm handled a messy lawsuit and Appeal for my company a few months ago. She was very thorough and exhibited great skill and effectiveness representing my company. She worked tirelessly often over weekends and holidays. She is very easy to communicate with and really listens to her Clients which is a rarity that seems like a lost art in today’s fast paced world. She was caring and sensitive to my situation and very reasonable in her fees. Btw We Won our Case and Appeal .

Wills and Small Business Legal Docs
Ms Patton set up mine and my husband's wills. She was very thorough and made sure that we understood all of the documents. I have also hired her to work on several legal matters for our small business. She turned around documents quickly and made sure that we were covered for any

Totally satisfied!
I hired Ms. Patton to help me with estate planning and to have my will written up. We mostly communicated by email or phone, and she was always quick to respond or return my calls. I'm so relieved to have this burden lifted and glad that Ms. Patton was the attorney I chose!

Quick, Communicative and Honest!
Jaclyn handled my dad's probate and helped my mom, who is disabled, draft her will and other documents she needed now that my dad isn't here to take care of her. Although I couldn't get an appointment right away, I felt Jaclyn more than made up for the wait by her efficiency, clearness and patience once we met. I've hired lawyers before, but never for wills or probate and I had a lot of questions. Jaclyn really made a point of explaining things and making sure I understood and was comfortable with the next steps in the process. And she told me during our first meeting, she gives clients the same advice she would give her close friends. As my mom can't leave her house, Jaclyn came here with her paralegal to sign mom's will, power of attorney, and other papers. She really went out of her way to make a not very fun task quick and painless.
