Please know that I absolutely trust Joan for all my legal matters. She recently completed my will and health directive. I am a single woman and knowing that all my affairs are in order and my financial desires are taken care of puts my mind at ease. She is super smart and looks "deeper" than any lawyer I have ever consulted with. I highly recommend Joan also because I have known her for years and can attest to her trustworthiness and intelligence. Thank you Joan!!!

I have known Ms Watters for 30+ years and have been a client for the last 10. She has well represented me regarding two legal matters and has advised myself and family members on related issues.
When presented with questions that might not have immediate answers, she will research those questions and will return with knowledgeable answers. Ms Watters advice has usually been spot on, although I (regrettably) have not always followed that advice.
Her candid and honest demeanor puts one at ease while discussing somewhat uncomfortable legal realities.
I trust Ms Watters in matters of my estate implicitly and have full confidence that she will handle my affairs to the fullest of her abilities and will provide support to my heirs when called upon to do so.
I would recommend Ms Watters legal representation to family and friends without hesitation.

Apart from her professionalism and serious intelligence, Joan Watters possesses the kind of empathy and trustworthiness that one hopes for, but may not often find in an attorney. She is a godsend!
