    Initially, Loraine spent time with us to understand our needs & wishes. In that process, she did a very good job of explaining our options & the consequences of those options. Then she created documents that would address all our issues & potential issues. When we reviewed the drafts, she was very good at converting the complex language of the documents into understandable terms. Throughout the process, we were convinced that Loraine really understood our needs & provided the best protection.

    Recommended by our financial advisor, we found Lorraine highly knowledgeable of laws and customs around wills, trusts & related documents. Particularly strong on tax implications from different choices. Equally as important, she has a very clear manner in explaining all issues and was very willing to take needed discussion time to ensure her clients understood. With blended family concerns we found her very helpful in explaining options. Her follow up was consistent yet not obtrusive.
