    I was extremely impressed with how Kirk created our Family Trust. I didn't just want a run of the mill boilerplate solution. I wanted my trust to do exactly what I had in mind. Kirk not only listened and understood what I was trying to do but he crafted the documents specifically to ensure my wishes are carried out. He even offered a few solutions that worked better than what I was thinking before I went in to see him. Kirk took care of the specifics and I couldn't be happier.
