    I have had the opportunity to review Mr. Harvell's qualifications and experience in wills, Trusts, Durable Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, and Estate Tax Mitigation. I highly recommend his work. In addition to his exceptional work standard he also sets the bar extremely high with his personal commitment to the community. This is reflected through his active service in both legal and community enrichment organizations.

    Unfortunately, my immediate family was completely at odds with each other as to how to handle the affairs of my mother and my step father. I thought for sure the matter was heading for a lawsuit and my mother at her advanced age was caught in the middle of this family war. I am so grateful to Mr. Harvell. He is insightful and strong and holds to his excellent reputation. His firm is outstanding in handling these matters of the elderly and I just am glad we got to them first.

    Andrew agreed to accept a complex Estate case that was in an advanced stage of being processed by the court, making it more complicated than if he'd been involved from the beginning. He was extremely knowledgeable and (equally important to me as the stressed-out Executor!) very good to work with. He explained things clearly, responded promptly when I emailed him with questions, was thoughtful and made the process much easier for me. I recommend him highly.

    Mr. Collins represented my wife and I in a civil suit. It was the first time in our lives that we were the defendants in such an action. I have witnessed many lawyers during my 75 years but have never witnessed a more calm, cool, collected lawyer who had a thorough knowledge of all the facts in our case and had those facts both in his head and in his well prepared exhibits. In our opinion there are 5 words to describe Mr. Collins and those are "the man is a genius."

    I am most impressed with the service I am receiving from this law firm. It is well beyond any expectation. It is unusual in this day and time to have people do what they say they are going to do, but Cecil and this law firm do just that. I live out of town and the service has been first class. They much deserve their fine reputation.

    Wesley Collins is an excellent, energetic lawyer. He communicates with you constantly, answering your questions and asking for your input. He is very honest, dedicated, and hard-working. He is very organized, well-prepared and fights hard to represent his clients in trial. I would highly recommend him.

    Attorney Andrew Foster agreed to accept a complex Estate case that was in an advanced stage of being processed by the court, making it more complicated than if he'd been involved from the beginning. He was extremely knowledgeable and (equally important to me as the stressed-out Executor!) wonderful to work with. He explained things clearly, responded promptly when I emailed him with questions, was thoughtful and made the process much easier for me. I recommend him highly.

    Should you be seeking an estate attorney who demonstrates a remarkably keen ability to work with a client using not only legal skills but the willingness to be empathic regarding who you are as an individual, Cecil is the man to hire. My wife and I have known Cecil for over twenty years. He has been on the spot for us through thick and thin making adjustments to our estate needs by being that third party who can negotiate us through whatever problem may have arisen.
