Yes, your search is over. You've been traveling a long road trying to find the right person, but go no further. Daniel Ellis McKenzie is professional, very personable and knows his stuff. You will not go wrong with this attorney.
I am hoping these accolades will resonate with you if you are drowning in a sea of choices. Just as I was, until he entered my life in May, 2014, and helped my husband and I put together a Living Trust that will help our sons after we are gone. A number of complicated issues were addressed and handled with care and sensitivity. You are not just a paycheck to this attorney. He will give you his all.
My husband and I had been putting off the inevitable end-of-life arrangements and when we finally bit the bullet, we signed up with another attorney whose approach to clients (despite high ratings) was "assembly-line" at best and "dishonest" at worst. We discontinued our association and did some more research.
I discovered Avvo and scrolled down the list of attorneys. As luck would have it, Mr McKenzie's picture and profile were near the top of the list this day and I kept going back to it. I liked his history and as odd as this may sound, his photograph seemed to reflect someone I'd like to deal with, a hunch that really paid off.
Daniel McKenzie made a depressing but necessary task as pleasant as one can make it considering the subject. He is patient, informative, returns telephone calls and emails, knowledgeable, and just plain nice to be around.
You will have no regrets if you go with this attorney.

I am currently facing a delicate situation with regard to my late husband's Trust. The situation is delicate in part because of the personalities and emotions that are involved -- and in part because of the states that are involved (I live in one state, my husband lived in a second state, and his Trust was set up in a third state, where he had taken up temporary residency to receive medical treatments). I had no idea what I was legally entitled to ask for (or even demand) as far as my husband's wishes (and his former POA's actions) were concerned. I asked Dan McKenzie to look into the matter for me, and he provided me with a thoroughly researched accounting of the rights and obligations of everyone involved in the situation, along with a set of recommendations on how I could proceed. He was thorough, quick, sensitive, and discreet.

Daniel prepared a will, estate plan, and all documents with my final wishes - just in case something happens to me. He was very knowledgable about what type of document was appropriate in my situation and walked me through the options. He made what can be a morbid process, easy and comforting. He was very responsive with emails, phone calls, and in-person meetings to get the entire process accomplished in a quick and efficient manner. And the cost was much less than what many others charge. I have recommended Daniel to my friends and colleagues.

Dan is a very bright attorney who does an amazing job of taking complex problems and making them simple. He is a tremendous attorney. Someone I would go to if I needed help with business law, estate planning or probate.
