My husband and I were directed to Rebecca by a close friend. We are thrilled to have her help us with our estate planning. We felt comfortable from the first moment we met. She is very engaging and patient . She keeps us on the right track and gives us suggestions to think about.. Wonderful lady!

Great experience!
Rebecca gave my husband and I a thorough understanding of all of our options when it came to putting together a will and/or trust. She was so easy to understand and made us feel comfortable with any questions we had. We especially loved the family emergency card she gave us to put in our wallets. This makes us feel even more secure that if anything should happen to us, people will know we have children and who to get in touch with concerning their care as fast as possible. We have recommended Rebecca to friends, and would definitely do it again if we knew someone looking for help with estate planning documents!

Will Planning
It was long over due and finally at age 55 I have made the steps to getting a will set up for my family. Rebecca was so kind, helpful and professional. I brought my 23 year old daughter to the second meeting and Rebecca was able to explain everything in a way that made both my daughter and I feel very comfortable with the difficult topics and decisions. She even had homemade banana muffins for us when we arrived! Its very comforting to know that if and when something happens to me, my kids would have such a caring person to help answer any of there questions.
