Terri was very personable and helpful with our estate planning. She explained the various types of estate plans and helped us to understand which one was right for us. She walked us through the entire process, and when we were finished my husband and I felt a great sense of relief and peace of mind. Now we know that if tragedy struck, our children would be taken care of to the best of our wishes.
I am an attorney and have been for 20 years. I trust Terri completely. I sent my own parents to Terri to have their trust, wills, and power of attorneys drafted. She did a great job for them. My parents were very happy with her also. In addition, I am a litigation attorney, therefore, I frequently send clients to Terri who need the type of services that she provides that I do not, such as drafting contracts, estate planning, setting up corporations or LLCs, and real estate matters.
Terri North and Legal Strategies have looked over my will and estate planning documents. She made suggestions that will help me in planning for my family. She has also reviewed very complicated contractual documents for me in a timely and easy to understand manner. Terri was very helpful and sat down with me to review these documents, one by one to make sure I had all my questions answered. She has a calming, yet thorough nature about her that makes you feel comfortable while you are working with her. I would highly recommend her without reservation for estate planning and document review/generation.
I have been working with Terri North for the last year and a half on different projects that I needed to get in order for myself. I had just gone through a lot with my parents and lost them both in 2009. Terri answered my questions and encouraged me to also get my personal paperwork in order. Since I am living with but not married to my partner, I had no legal say in his care and he did not have any for me. Being responsible for the full care for both my parents helped me to see that he and I needed Terri's help to get our affairs in order. Terri answered any questions I had and never hesitated to call me back or e-mail me. I feel very comfortable talking and working with her. There is no pressure. She talks to you and not over your head. She is a person I am pleased to have in my court.
I trust Terri at My Legal Strategies for my personal and corporate legal needs. My Legal Strategies has completed my personal estate planning, often reviews our corporate contracts, and provided legal assistance through the difficult process of severing a business partnership. I still own the business and it thrives today. Terri is fair, professional, comprehensive, and takes the time to explain legal matters in terms that I can understand.
Terri North at Legal Strategies was the attorney that my family picked to plan my parents' estate plan. What I first liked about Terri is she is very personable. Combined this with the fact that she is very knowledgeable and experienced made me feel comfortable. She takes her time and explains everything in a unique style that is easily understood by all. I was so impressed with the way Terri handled my parents' estate that when I set up my business I turned again to Terri to advise me. She currently advises me on all legal issues concerning my business. I would highly recommend her.
I have used Terri for legal and estate planning work. I have also referred her to clients of Lucid Business Strategies. Terri's work is impeccable. On multiple occasions,Terri has provided insight on legal issues I would have never considered. Perhaps the thing I enjoy most about working with Terri is that she is so personable. She makes legal issues understandable and speaks English v. legalese. I always feel I am talking to a friendly advisor instead of an attorney. I highly recommend Terri for any contract law,corporate law or estate planning issues.
I have used Terri to do not only my estate planning, but for real estate endeavors as well. With Terri's expertise I was able to achieve goals that I previously thought may not be possible & have preserved assets that now can be passed down to my son. Terri is very thorough & has the forethought to ask those tough "what if" questions that protect us from unforeseen circumstances that can (and in my case, did) occur. I'm grateful for her diligence & guidance. The return on investment is immeasurable.
Terri is an honest and trustworthy advisor who tells it like it is. I feel very comfortable working with her regarding my estate planning.
