I found Mr. Stack to be a great listener, caring, detailed & very helpful in making decisions. I'm 80 & concerned to make things easier after my passing, for people I care about. He is the "BEST".

I have practiced in the same town and the same area of law (probate matters and related litigation) with Mr. Stack for over 20 years. We have been on the same side, opposing sides, representing clients with similar interests, and in most other postures one might expect lawyers to work in. I have found him honest, learned, capable, and always prepared. He is a strong advocate and a formidable adversary.
