Very knowledgeable attorney, created our trust. I knew very little coming in, spoke in laymen for us non-attorney people! His assisting attorneys wraped things up, although young, were equally as professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend Mr. Clausen and Staff to anyone wanting a trust established.

Steve Clausen is very knowledgeable in the areas of estate planning; partnerships and corporate business law. We have used his services for over 25 years now and he has guided us through many complex decisions. He was extremely thorough in estate preparation in our personal and business lives. And he continues to give us sound legal advice as we continue to run our third generation business. Steve prepared my personal Will In Testament and helped make the process as easy to understand as possible so that I made the best choices for my family. He extolled the benefits and helped create a Limited Partnership with my business partner in order to expand our estate planning capacity. I would easily recommend Steve Clausen as a top rate attorney.

He was careful to advise me of all possible outcomes as the case progressed, which allowed me to follow a course of action that ultimately led to a reasonable outcome. I would strongly recommend his professional legal services.
