Great Law Office
Stephanie Palmblad and the staff at Collier Law are so professional and approachable. They guided our family in getting our will in order and were so helpful in answering all our questions to make it as easy as possible. It was nice to work with a trustworthy person who had our interests and needs at the forefront of the process.

Knowledgable and caring attorney
Stephanie handled my mother's trust and all the legal paperwork once my mom passed away. Stephanie was able to explain the legal process in words that we could understand. Stephanie kept us up-to-date on the status of the case and we felt really cared about our family. I highly recommend Stephanie for estate planning needs.

Ms. Palmblad is an honest, and straight forward for estate lawyer.
Ms. Palmbald is a lawyer who specialize in the estate. She is detail about explaining the specifics, and the choices between a will, and an estate. Ms. Palmblad parperes all paper work, and will mail the form to your doctor, bankers, friends, and etc. to sign. You can call her anytime of the day if you have questions, she is very helpful. She does not give you an answer if she does not know but she will check into it, and get back with you. Very professional lawyer, I had recommend her to a lot of my friends about how important it is to have an estate done. The money I paid her was worth every penny!

Excellent lawyer for hard times and good times
Very welcoming, professional, patient, clear answers to difficult questions from brother's death without a will to getting the inherited house put in the name of our trust; maintained contact; always someone available; very helpful with questions; very clear about next steps; works well in person and at a distance. We are eager to move to Salem from California and continue our relationship.

Processing My Mother's Estate
I found my way to Collier Law through somewhat of a circuitous route. Upon my mother's death I approached the attorney who she used to prepare her will. Not far into the probate process if found myself in a non-responsive and somewhat combative relationship with that law firm, and subsequently terminated that agreement. Then, when working with the mortuary I happened to ask one of their staff who she might suggest I approach to guide me through the probate process. She didn't hesitate a moment and said, Collier Law. I was so very lucky to get that referral. We had a bump in completing the probate process, but Stephanie and Ryan sorted through it and the right thing happened in the end. Good people doing good work. For me, this closes a chapter. One that I had not realized how hard it would be to traverse. But am happy that I am on the other side. Thank you to everyone there at Collier Law for all your work ... your good work. Most of all, thank you for being such stand-up people. I can't tell you how reassuring it is to have worked with true professionals. My best wishes to all of you for success in your professional, and personal lives, and for a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas season. If I'm ever asked where to go in this area for probate or estate planning, I'll answer in the same way that the lady at the mortuary did, without hesitation, Collier Law. Thank you. Eric

Patient and Efficient
Stephanie recently helped with the probate of my father's estate. This was the first time that I had to handle something of this nature and Stephanie was very gracious in walking me through the process, answering complex questions, and understanding that this is not an easy time to handle this type of business. The probate was handled quickly and respectfully. I would highly recommend her.

S. Palmblad Extraordinaire!
Stephanie was such an excellent lawyer to deal with. Her warm smile and welcoming manner was accompanied by a keen mind. She easily put us at ease, made us feel like our legal matters were very important to her, answered every question or concern we had, and in the end accomplished the Trust updating we needed .

Overall Experience with Stephanie
My husband recently passed away and I was left with the painstaking task of obtaining a will and trust. It was not something I was looking forward to have done, however, the staff at Collier-Law made this process very comforting to say the least. Stephanie thoroughly went through the process and explained in detail each subject matter. I would highly recommend Stephanie to my family and friends for legal matters such as this.

Excellence
Stephanie Palmblad has been a tremendous asset to me and my family during an extremely difficult time. Stephanie's knowledge, calm demeanor, and personable relations eased the stress we were experiencing with our sudden loss. She has been able to give me step by step recommendations and instructions that have worked best for our needs while asking for very little leg work on my part. She has allowed us a worry free support that allowed my family to focus on other things. Stephanie is a reliable lawyer with high integrity, a wonderful work team and excellent service. My experience with her during our estate recovery has impressed me so much that I made an appointment for her to handle my own will and trust for the future. Stephanie and her team will be my estate planners from here on out. I am so thankful to have such a trusted advisor.
