Shot In The Dark Method

I have been trying to get a lead on a different lawyer to handle my estate planning. That's why I had the frustration post. It's amazing how many people make assumptions about my situation. I shot an email to an attorney who specializes in business law, real estate law, estate planning and is a CPA that nobody recomended. In February I'll let you know how we make out. Morgan is going w/ me to my initial meeting.
