"Joe was great. Knowledgeable and responsive. I had him review a contract for a future business endeavor and my business partner said he caught things the original authoring attorney had missed or failed to cover. Ill be using Joe in the future for estate planning. Thanks again."

"Stead & Associates was a pleasure to work with in developing my will. I have never done something like this before, but wanted someone who could help me build a foundation to protect my assets. He answered all my questions and helped me find the best options that worked for me. Even as a graduate student in healthcare, he worked with my budget to get me a top quality product at an affordable rate. I'll be using him again in the future!"
