"We have had the pleasure of working with Leslie Mark Gammill on two separate occasions. Our first experience involved creating a trust for my elderly uncle and the second was to bring my parents’ very outdated trust up to date. From the beginning, Leslie listened to our concerns, pinpointed our needs and came up with answers. Leslie demonstrated her impressive scope of expertise developing customized solutions in an array of difficult areas with precision. She was meticulous in her attention to detail and when she didn’t have immediate answers to our questions, she made sure she researched extensively for the right answers. She was very supportive throughout the entire process, explained each and every page of the documents in detail and set everyone’s mind at ease. We have no doubt she will be just as supportive when we need her."

- Lori K.

 


 

"I am pleased to say that Leslie Mark Gammill has been our family's attorney for over 15 years. She has advised, created, amended and administrated multiple trusts for a complex family, which is not an easy achievement.  It can be a strange thing to plan for when you are no longer here or to facilitate a trust of a loved one you've just lost. However, given our experience with Leslie we now cannot imagine doing any of this without her. We are grateful for her compassion, ease of communication, experience with estate issues along with her sound judgment and reassuring guidance. She is professional and ethical. She listens to her clients' needs and undoubtedly understands the challenges that can arise while administrating a trust during difficult times. Her proactive approach to estate planning along with her extensive experience can remedy potential issues long before they arise while making an arduous process as smooth as possible.

We don't know what life has in store for us, but I am completely confidant and reassured knowing Leslie is in our corner and just a phone call away. It is my great pleasure to highly recommend Leslie Mark Gammill for any and all estate planning, probate and trust administration."
