We had a wonderful experience

We had a wonderful experience with your company. Chris Vatsaas helped us prepare my mother's estate. He explained the process very well and answered every email promptly. We were nervous going into this process and Chris put us at ease with his friendly and helpful demeanor.

A Tireless Fighter

I retained Chris Vatsaas for a divorce after 27 years of marriage. Chris gave me the time to explain everything in detail as to how to proceed and what the process would involve. Chris was on my side the entire time and fought tirelessly to ensure that I received what I was legally entitled to. He always conferred with me and if I had questions or if an issue arose he was prompt in getting back to me. I highly recommend him. He provides the personal attention to his clients that you want.
