Nick is an Asset to my Business
Nick has been a great resource for my small business. He always adds value to what I'm looking to accomplish and makes sure we are covered from a legal standpoint. The legal documents he has drawn up for me have been reasonably priced. Nick makes owning my own business much easier than before I started working with him!

Questions Answered!
I wanted some information about setting up a Trust Fund for a family member in a sad situation. Nick was very professional and responsive. He gave me a basic understanding of the different types of Trusts available (explaining the differences from a standard will), and answered all my novice questions in a respectful and detailed manner.

Nick is an excellent choice!
Nick did the Estate Planning for my wife and I. From the get-go, he listened to what we wanted, and then very professionally helped to guide us through our options to get us there. While not terribly complex, our requirements definitely didn't make this a boiler-plate job for Nick, and he handled it perfectly. The best part is he was great at translating much of the verbiage (and the process) we might not understand, into something we could. All this while never making us feel silly for asking question after question. If you're looking for a expert that will get you the Estate Plan, Will or Trust you need, all while guiding you through the complexities of the process thoughtfully, Nick is your guy.
