Estate Attorney

I was introduced to John through the Thumbtack app. He responded to me within an hour of my reaching out to him. He was extremely professional and easy to talk to. He helped me navigate the arduous task of settling an estate. I can’t begin to describe how warm and engaged he was throughout the entire process. He made a very difficult and emotional time so much easier for me. He is currently working on another project for me and is providing the same level of responsiveness, integrity and care. I highly recommend John without any hesitation. Excellent Attorney!

I needed some last minute advice as my siblings and I were reaching the final stages of my parents estate settlement. Though the whole process had run fairly smoothly, the last details (especially after the house closed) got quite sticky. I approached John to discuss and he had answers and advice to me within hours. I have had a good amount of experience with attorneys over the years, both in my professional and personal life, but never had I experienced the level of concern and client service that I had in such a small window with John.
