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 Our will was terribly out of date and no longer provided the legal and financial protection we wanted for ourselves or our children.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.
