My elderly mother and I recently had the opportunity to consult with Mr. Keyes regarding her estate planning and Living Trust. As has been our experience on prior visits with Mr. Keyes, his warm and friendly demeanor quickly set my mother's mind at ease. Mr. Keyes demonstrates great empathy and care in his work. He explains things clearly and articulately, and addressed our each and every concern, as well as educated us on a number of issues that hadn't even occurred to us. His thorough and careful explanations were very much appreciated. We cannot speak highly enough of Mr. Keyes, and would certainly be happy to recommend him with the highest regard. Thank you Mr. Keyes!

I think that Mr. Keyes is a very nice person, but he should handle his job more fairly and professionally.
Mr. Keyes failed to inform me of the charge or his rate prior to my phone call conversation which he dragged on and on. I let him talk because I did not know he would charge me. I got a surprising bill, and I tried to contact him but I got no response from him.
To make a long conversation short, I hired his boss, but I had a consultation with Mr. Keyes later on.

We did not know Elijah Keyes though had done business with Gilfix and La Poll previously. It was a pleasure working with Elijah to get our Trust and estate planning completed. He listened carefully to our wants and needs and it was very evident that his goal was to give us the best results. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law and always explained matters clearly. He was always available and responded immediately to our questions and concerns and quickly resolved any issues. Elijah made excellent suggestions and recommendations that gave us peace of mind in our complicated situation. In addition, he has a very caring and kind personality. We highly recommend Elijah Keyes.
