My wife and I set up a living trust with John several years before her sad and unexpected passing. John explained the process of establishing the trust very clearly and, after her death, was very sympathetic and patient in making sure I understood the process going forward of splitting the trust. He has helped me understand my responsibilities as trustee and I am about to consult him again to revise my survivor trust to reflect my current wishes on how to distribute my assets upon my death.
I recommend him and his staff in the highest fashion.

John and his staff handled our parents' estates with the utmost professionalism and made a very complicated process progress smoothly. In times of family stress, having a capable and competent advisor relieved us of having to worry about the legalities. Our meetings with John before our parents' passing proved to be incredibly valuable. Preparation is key and John, Lynn, Traci and Trish did everything that needed to be done very well. We can't thank them enough.
