Very helpful.
Ms. Wasma was very helpful in advising me on estate matters for Arizona (I am an out of state resident). Additionally, conferencing with her over the phone was easily arranged by her staff.

Very satisified!
Pamela Walsma did an excellent job on my case! She kept me in the loop every step of the way and was able to settle out of Court! She never kept me waiting. Very professional and she knows the law...I would highly recommend her!
