They did a fantastic job for us reviewing, updating, and refreshing our trust documents, as well as briefing us on the various changes to the law that have occurred over the years. And, perhaps most importantly, they have a clear, coherent moving forward strategy for keeping us abreast of future changes and working with us proactively.
