We have used Marty for over six years as our family lawyer. He came highly recommended to us when we needed a lawyer to prepare a will after the birth of our first child. Marty is extremely knowledgeable in his field and immediately put us at ease. He is always prompt, courteous and respectful. Marty asked us questions to determine which type of Will, Trust and Power of Attorney was necessary for us and our growing family. We continue to rely on Marty for any legal issues we have and our trust our family's future with him. Thank you!
I recently hired Mr. Snyder to create my first will. Being completely unfamiliar with wills and trusts, I was a bit intimidated by what seemed to be a complex process, so I relied heavily on his expertise to complete this important part of my estate planning. Mr. Snyder was a perfect choice for my situation. At our initial meeting, we discussed my intentions, and he was extremely helpful in explaining the best strategies for achieving my goals, and the legal issues to consider with each option. Mr. Snyder is thoroughly experienced, knowledgeable and has great communication skills. My will was completed quickly and for a very reasonable fee. I highly recommend him for this service.
