Excellent legal advice
My wife and I engaged Ms. Colihan to prepare and implement a comprehensive estate plan and living trust. Not only was Ms. Colihan most pleasant to deal with, her work was thorough, careful, and very well planned and executed. She and her firm provided a robust and resilient plan that serves our needs very well. The cost was fair considering the detailed and vomprehensive nature of the work performed, and we are very happy with the results. I highly recommend Ms. Colihan and her firm, and have done so personally on several occasions.

Outstanding Service/Results Driven
this past year we had a circumstance that required an Attorney that handles Estate issues. A family member had removed a property from an irrevocable trust which incurred major tax implications. Darcie, who was refereed by a friend, was so, helpful understanding, thorough and timely! She is organized, extremely thoughtful, and exhausted every avenue in efforts to help us come to a solution, which at first we thought could be possible. in addition to Darcie being a pleasure to work with in a situation that was not ideal, she went above and beyond to lay out the implications each action we in tale. In my opinion, educating us beyond her scope for our own good, was far beyond what was being asked of her. It was apparent that Darcie truly wants more than just the desired outcome for her clients! She strives to help her clients through the process by holistically looking at the issue at hand and not just point A to B. i would recommend Darcie to anyone who is looking for an Estate planning Attorney.

Darcie Colihan
Darcie is a wonderful attorney! She spent many hours with us in updating our wills, trust and medical documents. We have made LGC (Darcie's firm) the executors of our trust, because we are confident that Darcie will be there to assist us in the future.
