My husband & I were very pleased with the Estate Planning & Trust creation performed by Attorney Tracy Murn. We were referred to Tracy & could not have felt we were in better hands. She helped us through the process, answered all our questions, & gave us valuable insight. We enjoyed meeting Tracy, getting to know her, & felt we chose the correct attorney for this major life step.
Tracy is amazing. She’s the third lawyer I worked with to review my lease—we haven’t been occupying our space for 18 months (thanks, COVID!) and were wondering what we could do about it. Tracy reviewed and responded quickly, and provided straightforward, excellent advice. Alternatively, I waited a month for another lawyer to do the same thing. There’s no question: I will be bringing my company’s legal needs to Tracy in the future.
