sFriendly, Helpful, professional
Even though this was an initial consult, she took plenty of time to answer my questions and give me information. I will be using her for my family trust work. I am looking forward to working with her.

Dylan helped me create a will and detailed trust for husband and I. It is not the most fun thing to think about (our demise), but she made it actually an enjoyable experience! She was very professional, quick, easy to work with and thorough. Our trust in particular was complicated and she was effortlessly able to grasp our wishes and even enhance them to create a detailed trust which I feel serves us very well. I rest easier knowing that we have this all taken care of, even though I am only 37 years old! I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal advice and indeed recommend her to all my friends and family. It is just the right thing to do to prepare for the future and not let our kids or strangers spend their energy deciphering over our estate.
