Mr. Collins was the attorney for my friend, Helen, and when she died I was the Trustee for her Estate. I contacted Mr. Collins because he was on her most recent documents and her prior attorney had become a Judge so was unable to continue to assist her. I had not worked with him, nor with any other Estate attorney, so did not know what to expect.
I was/am very pleased with the assistance of Thom Collins and his assistant Angela, who were both extremely helpful with the Helen L. Riley Trust processes. They both did a lot of explaining to help me with …. They also were responsible for the preparation of all the necessary documents.
I especially appreciated Mr. Collins’ court representation and responses to my numerous inquiries. It was wonderful to have assistance and direction from a knowledgeable attorney and staff.
