Made drafting our Living Trust easy and painless.
After buying our first house, we knew we needed a trust. Hiring a veteran is important to me and Kent came up on the list of local Estate planning lawyers who was also a veteran. His staff helped us with all the details, but Kent checked on us throughout the process and made sure every question was answered and every page was correct. The whole process took only two visits, 10ish emails and one phone call. A stress free experience.

Trustee
I had to create a trust for a family asset I owned. I had a lot of questions about different types of trusts and the details of the trust. Attorney Scott was extremely thorough in explaining everything. And after each meeting he made sure I was absolutely comfortable with my understanding. As a result it took over 5 months and 5 or 6 meetings to complete the trust. Mr Scott was very patient and thorough and the fee was fixed (not hourly). Overall I am very pleased with Mr. Scott's work and would highly recommend him for all estate planning services.

Professional Top Notch!
I was referred to Traditions Law, P.C. from a work referral. We first corresponded with his Legal Assistant - Dominic. We coordinated over email and once we had all are documents in line, we set up an appointment to meet at their office. Kent was professional and very friendly. Kent and his Legal assistant went over our needs very thoroughly. We coordinated through email with a few questions we had and to also confirm everything was in place. We just completed our last appointment and feel 100% comfortable and happy we went to Traditions Law. P.C. to work with Kent Meyer and the legal team. I highly recommend!

Great Law Firm
I contacted the Traditions Law firm to update my revocable trust and the other related documents. I was very impressed by their professionalism and excellent service. Kent and his associates were very knowledgeable and made the whole process go very smoothly and accurately. They explained everything to me in details and made sure that all the documents were set up as I had wished. Everyone was very nice and welcoming. They made me feel very comfortable to contact them for any questions. They got me as a client for life and I would absolutely go back to them with any law questions or needs in the future. I recommend them very highly.

Professional, Kind and Knowledgeable in Estate Planning
I highly recommend Kent and his associates at Traditions Law. They were professional, kind and knowledgeable in all matters related to our Estate Planning. Each topic pertinent to our Living Trust, Durable Power of Attorney and Advance Healthcare Directive were thoroughly covered in our meetings. We left with an organized plan for our trustee to follow and the security of knowing that our estate will be properly handled when the time comes.

The best decision we have made in planning for our future!
From our first meeting up to our estate planning finalization, Kent was incredibly helpful with their knowledge & professionalism with educating us on the importance of not only have a “Will”, but taking it one step further and setting up a “Trust”. We are extremely satisfied with our decision, and recommend Kent to anyone needing assistance with their future planning needs!
