Our son knows Jack Stephens through a networking group and for sometime he has been telling us how knowledgeable and up-to-date he is on Estate Planning. We are very satisfied that we chose him to rewrite our Family Trust.
My fiance and I had a wonderful experience hiring Mr. Stephens for our legal needs. He was very professional, incredibly thorough, pleasant and masterful when putting together our Living Trust. We could not have found a better, more experienced lawyer.
Jack Stephens and the whole team are friendly and very competent. I would recommend their expertise to friends and family.
