Jack is extremely knowledgeable and helpful when advising about trust and estate planning. He handled some very complex challenges in our parents’ trust and gave us the proper guidance and saved us money.
I was impressed with Mr. Stephens’ background and experience. The entire office was very courteous and showed extreme patience when, due to medical problems, a few months turned into years.
Mr. Stephens carefully and expertly walked us through all aspects of our family Trust. His ability to educate us to protect our assets for our legacy was comforting. This made our decisions easy to make.
My husband and I knew that this was an emotionally difficult process to go through and had put if off for years. After hearing about their office through my parents who were going through the same steps, we decided to retain Jack Stephens as our attorney. Jack Stephens and his staff were professional, understanding, patient, responsive, very knowledgeable and helped guide us through this emotional process. We highly recommend them!
From the initial contact with the Stephens Law Group to the completion and signing of our documents, we found the attention to detail and responsiveness exemplary and the professionalism of the staff laudable.
