My husband passed away unexpectedly without a will and I had no idea what to do. A friend of mine recommended Connie. I reached out to her and she was fantastic. She put me at ease and assured me that she would help me with everything and she did. I thank her for all her help.
Went beyond what was expected
I was devastated when my mom passed away and [she] was there to guide me through the probate process from start to finish. She was very professional, made me aware of the various deadlines we would need to meet, and followed up on phone calls for me when I was weak with grief. [She] took time to explain what parts of Pennsylvania law were going to be involved in my particular situation and went beyond what was expected, to be sure I’m legally protected.
