A Very Positive Experience
We brought estate questions to Mr. Claxton. He was extremely knowledgeable, prompt, pleasant to work with and interested in being sure that his understanding of our concerns was clear. He worked through some difficult issues with ease. We have already recommended him to others.

Professional services
Mr. Claxton and his staff helped me out tremendously after my mother passed away. There were many complicated issues that I was in no way equipped to deal with. However, with their help and guidance, everything went very smooth.

Estate Planning and probate/non probate estates
This attorney has done my family's wills and we highly recommend him to others. He had a good sense of humor while still being professional and is very knowledgeable in his field.
