    Jim Voeller his a down to earth lawyer who really cares about providing exceptional service and spot on legal advice to his clients. Even though Jim Voeller has been practicing law for over three decades, he still takes the time to be up to date on cutting edge areas of the law. I highly recommend Jim Voeller if you are looking to hire a lawyer for your trust and estate planning needs.

  • Steven Thomas Welch

    I have known Jim for a number of years both professionally and personally. I am proud to call him a colleague and have gained more than my fair share of practical and substantive legal knowledge from him. He is generous and kind without being schmaltzy. He is intelligent and wise without being overbearing. I enthusiastically endorse Jim and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a first rate yet humble lawyer.
