Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

"Myself and my husband recently relocated to Texas and had to make a new will. We consulted with April Nordhaus regarding wills, probates and creating a revocable trust. April made a very difficult subject easy and straight forward. With April's help we successfully created a will and a revocable trust. April was really thorough in talking us through it. She explained everything in an easy to understand language with warmth and personality yet still maintaining a high standard of professionalism. We highly recommend April Nordhaus."
