Client Testimonial

Mr. Talbot has been handling our family trust for more than two years, and in all the time we've worked with him has been responsive, pro-active, attentive to needs that arise that we may not be aware of, and generally a pleasure to work with. I'd recommend him highly. He provides more than expected, digs into issues and problems in depth, and is clear and direct in his recommendations, which have been excellent for our family.

- Rachel D.

Matthew Talbot represented me in a tough probate matter. He was an excellent listener, completely knowledgeable about the case, and he was a very detailed and responsive lawyer. He always kept me informed at every stage of the matter. I am a lawyer and needed a lawyer for a trust matter because i do not work in the area of probate law. I chose Matthew Talbot because he came highly recommended by a colleague of mine. Being a lawyer, I was familiar with the courts in my area of practice and it was apparent that Matthew Talbot was extremely experienced in his area of law and with the courts. He gave me extremely good advice and was very organized in his thoughts and actions. He is very trustworthy. I would recommend Matthew as a probate attorney for any colleague, friend, or family member.

Mr. Talbot represented me in probate court when I petitioned to become trustee for my disabled uncle's living trust following a death in the family. He was professional and patient throughout the process. I highly recommend him.
