Preparation of Will
James Ross prepared a will for my husband and me when we had our first child. He was very professional and helped us through the entire process, making sure that we had everything we needed to care for our family in the event that something should happen to one or both of us. We could not have done this without his expertise and insight. Would definitely hire again for our future needs.
