My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 nueroendocrine cancer 3 months ago. We have two young children and were strongly encouraged by family to create a will in order to see that they would be taken care of in accordance to our wishes should anything happen to us. I don't think anyone enjoys creating such a document but in our case the idea of creating a will was particularly stressful.
I had all the confidence and faith that my husband would know full health again and didn't want him to think that by creating a will that I was giving up on my belief in his future. I discussed the issues regarding our situation with Shelley Buckholz and my concerns about how my husband might feel under the circumstances. I have to say that all of my fears were for not. Shelley was very tactful and professional in her wording and handling of every aspect of our meeting. If only some of his doctors could have the grace and kindness that she did.
We are very glad that we used Shelley and appreciated her thorough knowlege and ability to guide us easily through the process. We also appreciated that she mentioned a few documents which we hadn't considered (medical power of attorney--living will) which were of great use to us. I am not sure it is that difficult to find a lawyer who can throw a will together for you. However, if you want someone who will skillfully and mindfully walk you through your legal needs and who has your highest interests in mind then I recommend that you consult Shelley.

I have used Shelley Buckholtz for many circumstances over the last ten years. Shelley has handled many different matters for me, from my estate planning, to incorporating my business and lastly my prenup agreement. I have been referring her to friends, family and clients over the last ten years.
Shelley Buckholtz is very efficient and I trust her immensely.
