“Ed did an outstanding job of understanding our needs and walking us through the Estate Planning Process. He was the ever present professional in all aspects of Estate Planning, as well as in delivering the services and products in a timely manner. We would highly recommend Ed to our friends and family for all their Estate Planning needs."

“Having Ed Smith prepare our Estate Planning turned out to be an easy and pleasant experience for us. Ed is not only very professional, but his skill in listening to us made us comfortable and eased any anxieties we had."

Aside from the above, we would also highly recommend him because of his ability and knowledge to simplify what was a daunting task for us.  During our visits, it was like talking to a compassionate friend and family member.

He encouraged us to call with any questions, which we did and he responded quickly. We believe we made a wise decision in having Ed Smith prepare our Estate Planning.
