When it was time to update our estate plan we turned to Kent Phelps.  We were only two days away from an extended trip overseas and needed it done fast but done right – especially with a child who has special needs.  Our documents were completed, signed, notarized and witnessed in a day! And we were confident it was done right because we had the help of an experienced attorney.  So grateful to Kent for going above and beyond so we could enjoy our trip with peace of mind!

Kent’s unique perspective and focused expertise set him apart from his peers. His willingness to completely understand his client’s goals, and only then offer appropriate suggestions is refreshing. With an ability to take complex asset protection strategy and explain it in common context, it is easy to recommend him.
