    I am a former client of this firm and I would strongly suggest that prospective clients consider hiring alternative legal services. I received an erroneous bill from them years after having used them to help me with resolving my sister's estate. I repeatedly called them and explained how and why the bill was wrong, but in the end I had to prove that the error was theirs. They threatened taking action against me, and never contacted me to confirm the fee was dropped after I provided evidence.
