Judy Douglass worked with us to update our estate papers (trust, advanced directives, and last wills). She was very thorough and knowledgeable. We appreciated her expertise and guidance through the process. Judy was also very patient with us. The process was long, mostly due to our lack of response. She was understanding and encouraging through it all. There were many instances where we had questions or concerns, which Judy addressed in a speedy and satisfying way. It was a pleasure to work with Judy. Her demeanor and compassion helped us embrace the process without feeling overwhelmed or unsure. We are confident that, with Judy's expert handling, our estate is in great shape.

I consider it an honor to write a recommendation on behalf of Judy Douglass. Never in my life have I had anyone fight so hard and show so much compassion on behalf of someone she had just met. She worked on family probate/estate issues that went back three generations-so tangled and confusing that I was certain I would never see the light of day. Judy came in and took care of everything with the kind of professionalism and kindness that you only hear about, but rarely experience. She helped me and my elderly father clear up all paperwork, dealt with the courts and turned a seemingly impossible situation completely around. My childhood dream was to live in the family home and I sit in that house today writing this. It would never have happened without her. My father passed away in 2013 and for him to see all of this taken care of means more than I can express. He considered her a part of the family as do I. What she did for this family will never be forgotten. No one else in the world could have accomplished it.
