Highly recommended
We hired Michael to set up our wills. I had tried doing it myself in the past with online forms but it was too time consuming to do it and I wasn't sure if all grounds were being covered. Michael was great to work with. We met with him for one hour and went over our plans - he made recommendations and guided us to think about options we hadn't considered. Within a few days he had our wills ready for review. We had another meeting scheduled to sign it and that was it. Very easy. It did not take much of our time. And the end result is a will we are comfortable with.

Versatile and conscientious
We own a business and Michael has provided the expertise to keep us on track for 15 years. He also created a living will for my wife and myself. We were so pleased with the document that my father had Michael's office generate one for him. We can't say enough for the quality and personal attention we receive each time he provides legal assistance.
