I met with Jim Alder to setup an NFA trust in early December. I'm aware that for a *very* minor savings, you can set these up online, but for the small difference in price, Jim met with me for an hour, explained all the details of the trust, notarized my signature of it, answered questions that I had, provided me both a hard and electronic copy of the trust, provided additional information about filing ATF forms, and I have a trust backed by his firm and he is available to answer any questions and contact me in the future if laws/regulations change. To say that represents an incredible value is an understatement!
Jim was very nice, down to earth, and demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of the rules and regulations pertaining to the NFA including potential changes being proposed to the existing laws. I'd highly recommend using him for NFA trusts. He may be equally adept with other forms of estate and trust planning, but that wasn't the purpose of my transaction, although I will certainly reach out to him about family trust planning in the future. Again, highly recommended.

Jim helped us with our Will and related documents. He is a great lawyer. He is very professional, and knowledgeable. Besides getting things done in the most efficient and effective manner, he was always willing to answer our questions. We highly recommend his services; we were very satisfied with the whole experience.

Jim Alder has helped my family with Guardian, Conservator, and Probate matters for several years. He has always been very professional and personable in providing legal advice, assistance, and representation.
Jim recently responded immediately to a couple of urgent situations. Both required further investigation and consultation on his part to give me the specific, individual advice I needed. His timely effort and service was greatly appreciated.
I highly recommend him.

Jim is a genuinely caring professional. His realistic approach is repectful and straightforward. He treated me with dignity and respect. I highly recommend him and his services.

Jim helped me plan and complete my will. When I contacted Jim, he responded quickly to all of my questions. I feel like he helped me to make good decisions for my future. Jim was competent, precise, and trustworthy. Jim asked questions about me and my circumstances so that my will was completed exactly how I wanted it to be; I feel like if I pass away, there will be no questions about how my estate should be handled. More importantly, should I be in a position that I am unable to make decisions, my family will know how I want to be taken care of. When the process was complete, I had no remaining questions and felt completely at ease about my estate should something happen to me. I am confident that should something happen to me, my family, friends, and estate will be taken care of the way I want them to be taken care of. I am completely satisfied with the services that Jim provided for me.

I found the lack of any defined billing a little disconcerting. There was no invoice to pay or receipt for payments. I also felt like the assistant failed to follow through on some paperwork issues but nothing major.
