    Jay Sizemore handled a particularly ugly guardianship for our family. As in many guardianships, we were trying to protect the ward from another person who placed as many obstacles in our path as possible. Jay obliterated all of them. The time and cost were more than anticipated, but were necessary, given the circumstances. He did an extremely fine job and we are very happy with the results. I heartily recommend him.
