"Previously, I spoke with a couple other lawyers and I did not feel comfortable with their approach prior to calling slnlaw. Jenna did an excellent job in assessing what I wanted to accomplish and completed my will, trust and other documents in a very short time. I am so happy I made the right choice in choosing slnlaw as my estate team." Evelyn W.
