    VERY poor service. I had a fairly straight forward trust settlement event, and merely needed an attorney to look over my shoulder and see that the forms that needed to be signed were in order. I asked REPEATEDLY for advice on signing waivers, and only once received an answer TWO WEEKS after the form was due. The other forms I signed with NO reply from this company. Save your sanity and money, go elsewhere. TLDR; GLACIAL AND SLOPPY. Read less
