Mr. Zachary Rayo, A TRUSTWORTHY LAWYER
We hired Mr. Rayo in preparing our Living Trust and we have to say that Mr. Rayo and his staff were extremely professional, took the time not only to meet with my husband and I, but to have a round table meeting with our two daughters and eldest Granddaughter. He was detailed, explained in layman's language so we fully understood what he was drafting and what we were signing, therefore, no surprises for all involved in our Trust!! He also has a great sense of humor and made us feel very comfortable during the entire process and we have again hired Mr. Rayo to represent us in another legal case we are having to go to Court to resolve. He certainly has earned our trust and we will continue to use him as he is a straight up guy and we are thankful that we have Mr. Rayo in our life:):)!!

Good service
Zachary performed my request in a very timely manner. He was thorough and very detailed oriented. He helped guide us through the process of creating a Trust with little drama. I was very pleased with his service.

A friendly, competent Lawyer
Unfortunately, I tried to divorce my wife without using a lawyer. It did not take long for me to make a complete and utter mess of it. I finally came to my senses and hired Mr. Rayo, who very quickly straightened out the mess I had created. He and his associates filed all the necessary and correct forms with the court and, soon thereafter, I was happily divorced.
