Thanks for all your very good and very professional help in the matter of Rosemary's estate. Long and tedious will describe the process I guess but you helped "smooth the ride" with your expert guidance. It was a pleasure working with you and my sister has praised your work.

Attorney Doug MacNeille prepared my Will, Power of Attorney and Health Care POA. The experience was a pleasure thanks to Doug's timely quick wit and sound advice. The price I was charged was very reasonable compared to the other quotes I received. I will definitely use his services again and tell my friends and family.
