My husband and I met with Valerie to revise our wills that were created by another attorney years ago. We walked into her office not understanding much of the legal jargon in our wills and she did a fabulous job explaining the details that were confusing to us. Valerie is very personable, professional and knowledgeable. I'd recommend her to a friend in a heartbeat!

A few years ago, I went to Valerie for a Will and/or a Trust. She explained in terms which I could understand why a Trust is needed or not needed, what Probate is, how a Power of Attorney works and the details of a Health Care Directive. I was very impressed by her knowledge and how clearly she communicated with me, both in person and by email. I am lucky to have found an attorney who is very personable, patient and competent. I have recommended her to three friends who all have had positive experiences with her. I highly recommend her to anyone with legal needs!

She also is personable and will spend the time it takes to ensure her clients are comfortable and understand her recommendations and actions. You will be in good hands if you choose Valerie as your lawyer.
