Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

"April Nordhaus and her legal assistant Allison McKenzie have been magnificent to work with. Our will was terribly out of date and no longer provided the legal and financial protection we wanted for ourselves or our children. April spent a significant amount of time discussing our intentions and was able to make numerous recommendations; and her ability to explain legal language and provide examples was invaluable. Allison's meticulous attention to detail kept the whole process on track and moving smoothly toward completion. Under their professional guidance we have been able to craft a complete set of extremely specialized Trusts. We would strongly recommend their services without reservation."
