    Dependable - Reliable Service. We have been exceptionally pleased with the estate planning services provided by Purcell & Amen. Charlie Amen is able to explain unfamiliar and difficult matters in a simple, clear, easy-to-understand way. We appreciate that. We’re made aware of changes in laws that might affect our specific situation and family needs. We always find our reviews informative and believe it is time well spent.

    I can now die in peace. Very pleased with the service provided. Took time to explain what the document was and its purpose. We didn’t feel rushed, all of our questions were answered.

    Outstanding Client Service. We’ve been clients for 10 years. Costs are not cheap but they are reasonable. We were not charged for phone consultations regarding the out-of-state elderly father of one of us. Charlie Amen knows his stuff and knows how to explain the sometimes complex legalities. He is also congenial and funny. In our opinion, an unbeatable combination in an estate planning attorney.
