Guardianship Success
I needed good legal guidance and quick action when my client entered a Las Vegas hospital with terminal illness. Catherine is knowledgeable, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. She has answers to any and all questions and no question was too silly for her. All documents were professionally done with no errors. I would, and have already, recommend this firm to anyone in need of and excellent probate firm in Nevada.

Great!
Kim was recommended to us long ago. We are so glad now that we entrusted to her the revision of our legal/estate documents. Kim is really an expert in elder law. We previously used a different group and can clearly see Kim is much better. Kim and Danielle really listened to what we wanted and carefully included those clauses in our docs. They had good answers to our questions and challenges and had a solid rationale for why things were written as they were. They were very thorough. And the cost was reasonable.

Everyone was very helpful and took the time to answer all my questions even if it was for the third time. I trusted everyone from Kim Boyer on down. A great experience.

Thank you
I am glad that I used Boyer Law Group because of the excellent guidance in assisting me with updating vital personal documents that I experienced through Kim Boyer's outstanding service. Kim Boyer's professionalism and extensive knowledge in Elder Law were immensely assuring to me that I had entrusted the best of the best to properly and carefully execute the documents on my behalf and for my family. I also want to extend my deep appreciation to Luisa Heizer for her 5-star excellence and diligence in completion of the work.

Exceptional experience
I did not select this group. The law firm was appointed to handle the estate of my aunt. Everything was handled professionally and within the expected time frame. Communication with all the staff was prompt and courteous.

Client review
Luisa Heizer and Kim Boyer have always been patient, kind, compassionate, helpful and extremely competent in all dealings with my parents and me. Their knowledge and advice enabled a smooth transfer of property and assets upon the loss of my parents, allowing me to grieve rather than worry endlessly.

Client Experience
Kim Boyer and staff were very professional, helpful and organized. We needed something done quickly and they did it. Kim Boyer gave us creative ideas for what was a very unique situation, at least to us. The Paralegal, Luisa Heizer, was one of the best I have ever dealt with and was great at explaining details and always quick to return calls and to follow-up.

Satisified!
I am glad I used Boyer Law Group because Kim Boyer is understanding and knowledgeable on both legal and everyday issues affecting senior citizens, their families and caretakers. Kim Boyer is compassionate and treats each client as if they were her only client. Kim Boyer explains the legal process and what to expect every step of the way. Kim Boyer is a published author and her book, Alzheimer's and Dementia: A Practical and Legal Guide for Nevada Caretakers, is a must read for anybody who is affected by this horrible disease. Her integrity is reflected by her reasonable fees and her overall application of elder law as it applies to individual cases. She employs professional assistants who are experts in their specialized fields. I worked with Nichole Stone who prepared the legal papers necessary for obtaining legal guardianship of a member of my family. The paperwork is long, very detailed and complicated. She helped me make sure that I gathered the required documents required and then assembled them per court requirements. She always demonstrated kindness and understanding. After my family member passed, I worked with Jo Smith in completing the probate of her estate. This is also a long process that requires certain paperwork listing the value of ALL items in the estate including, but not limited to, sale of real estate (if needed), jewelry, car, personal items, etc. Jo guided me each step of this process and helped me understand how to complete each step. She showed great patience with my many questions. Overall both Nichole and Jo were available when I needed them and they completed both the guardianship and probate legal papers in a timely and efficient manner. I absolutely could not have done this without them. In summary, I am glad I used Boyer Law Group because they are efficient, knowledgeable, compassionate, professional, reasonable fees and overall excellent customer service.

Our legal matters were handled quickly and efficiently. Everyone was friendly and kind. I would not hesitate to contact them for any future legal needs. I highly recommend Kim Boyer and the Boyer Law Group.

Professional and Courteous
The entire staff was consistently courteous, professional and accommodating. In addition, consistently quick to respond and overall communication was great. Our situation was particularly sensitive and Kim Boyer fully understood and responded in support of my mother's best interests. I would recommend them for difficult family situations as well as other legal matters.
