This is a wonderful firm. I had the privilege to work with Fillipi Law to do my estate planning, which I was uneducated about. My Attorney was Jennifer, and she walked me through everything and was very patient, knowledgeable, and helpful so that my estate was simplistic to understand an execute. I highly recommend this company. I am very grateful for the services they provided me and especially for how kind and considerate they were with every step. Don’t hesitate to use them for your legal needs.
