Estate Planning
Tim was hired to plan our estate and was quick and efficient. I appreciated the online forum to share documents quickly. I was extremely busy throughout the process, but Tim was patient and understanding. Obviously an emotionally tough process to go through, but so necessary.

Professional, Knowledgeable, and Approachable
Tim was very helpful throughout the process, which was especially useful given that this was our first estate planning experience. He clearly knows what he is talking about, but was able to make it understandable to the uninitiated. He made himself available to answer questions when needed, his appointment schedule was flexible, and he was a pleasure to work with.
