Testimonials

 

I had a great experience working with Claudia to craft my Will, Power of Attorney and Advanced Directive. She was open-minded and understanding. She guided me in better directions when I needed it and was clear and helpful throughout the process. And she’s a lovely person.

My sister-in-law visited Claudia’s office with me to have a Will and a Power of Attorney drawn up. I had been procrastinating. Claudia was so personable and professional and made the whole process pleasant and painless. I would definitely recommend her and visit her again for legal matters.

S. G.

Claudia is not only an expert in Special Needs Law, she is also one of the most caring and compassionate persons I have ever met. Her goal is to give as much information and assistance as possible in a way that makes it accessible to families and individuals who have autism and other developmental disabilities. Her kindness, friendliness and professionalism make it a pleasure to work with her.
