After the death of my husband, I needed a probate attorney. I checked the reviews and chose Pam Hailey-Petty. So glad I did. She and her legal team showed such compassion. Her expertise and guidance made the experience as easy as possible. They always answered questions and followed up timely. With probate complete, time now for an updated estate plan. Once again, Pam's team provided the help and guidance I needed. My sincere thanks to Pam, Journey, Jayne and Michaela for helping me create this 'gift' to loved ones.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Pamela for my estate planning and other marital documents and I could not have been more pleased! This was the first time I had ever needed legal assistance and Pamela made me feel very much at ease and was very patient with my questions. It was easy communicating with Pamela and her legal team by email and phone during this pandemic. I would definitely recommend this law firm!

My wife and I recently worked with Hailey-Petty to put together estate planning documents. Pamela was extremely knowledgeable and great to work with as she answered our questions throughout the process, and Journey was extremely helpful coordinating the process and helping us stay on top of it. Hailey-Petty was very conscientious, and we appreciated the ability to schedule an outdoor and socially-distanced signing to complete our documents.
