Louis has prepared wills and other estate planning documents for my wife and me on two occasions: once when our children were younger and later, after our children had grown up. On both occasions, we found Louis to be knowledgeable, efficient and practical minded. We really appreciated the way he took the time to explain to us our options and helped us think through the decisions we had to make regarding our estate plans. In both cases, Louis gave us a good faith estimate of what he believed it would cost to do the work and on both occasions he came in under budget. In both cases we had an extremely positive experience with Louis and would recommend him to anyone in need of estate planning advice Read lessRead less
