Thank you to our generous sponsor, Affordable Attorney, Gerling Law Group Chartered 👏
Everyone treated me with respect and explained everything to me in language I could understand. The fees were reasonable. I highly reccomend this practice
I highly recommend having your complete EstatePlanning preformed by Gerling Law Group. When they say “Affordable Attorney” that is what they mean. From Dana to the entire staff we thank you for your professionalism and kindness. Wonderful to work with you!
We dealt with Dana on preparing our will , power of attorney and health care directives. She was great at explaining everything to us and her staff was just as helpful and informative in reviewing our finalized documents with us prior to our signing them. We really did find Gerling to be affordable as their name suggests and heartily recommend them.
Dana Gerling did a great job for us. She was professional and informative. Her and her staff answered all our questions and provided accurate and helpful documents we needed.
