Our Client Testimonials

What our clients say about us

  • As difficult a subject Estate Planning can be to discuss, Gifford made the entire process seamless and comfortable. He was responsive, educational and patient with us as we navigated through this project. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gifford and Collins Law in the future!

  • My husband and I have done estate planning with Collins Law Firm, LLC and Giff was wonderful to work with.  He made the whole process easy to understand and execute.

  • Gifford is very knowledgeable and thorough. Be prepared for a thick stack of organized papers. He helpfully includes a summary in less legal terms. I trust the estate plan and my relationship with Gifford will meet my needs.
