About Nathaniel

Learn Nathaniel’s areas of practice.

I handle estate planning and estate administration matters. I know the problems that can arise from poor estate planning and poorly drafted documents. My goal is to avoid these problems ahead of time by drafting detailed, thoughtful estate plans for clients. During estate administration, disputes can arise in many ways. My legal philosophy is to find the quickest and most cordial solution possible, but always be ready to fight for my clients when necessary.

Great Job, Good Person
Nathaniel helped us understand our estate planning and has helped us every step of the way. His honesty and transparency was refreshing. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for good legal advice.

Good Honest Lawyer
Nathaniel provided guidance to me twice on two very different legal matters. Once after I had been charged with reckless driving and when i went to buy my first house. Both times he provided good, honest direction that led to a positive outcome in both situations. I would absolutely vouch for his character and professionalism as a lawyer.

Excellent customer service
I consulted Nathaniel Conley about estate planning for my husband and me a couple months ago. He was knowledgeable and courteous and explained our options clearly. This is not something about which I have much knowledge, so it was nice to not be "spoken down to". I look forward to working with him in the future.

Thorough, detail-oriented and a great communicator
Nathaniel put together my husband's and my family trust. He had an efficient, streamlined process for working through the questions he needed to put together a customized plan for us, and was SUPER quick in turning it around. He's great at breaking concepts down into layman's terms and explaining the implications of various options/decisions, and he was attentive to detail throughout the process. Would recommend him to anyone I know.

My trust / estate planning
I made an appointment with Nathaniel Conley to make a trust in order to protect my nephew from probate. I had some very specific requests and they were absolutely taken care of. Nate was informative and very helpful with any questions I had. I was pleased to work with a local law firm.

Professional, ethical, and compassionate attorney
Nate Conley advised me on an estate planning issue related to my father's estate. He effectively communicated the issues related to our situation and responded quickly to my inquiry. What impressed me about Nate was his ability to provide me with a thorough analysis of our situation to ensure that we made a well informed decision. Nate was knowledgeable about the industry and provided us with professional service.
