I wanted to send a sincere note of thanks to Tom and his team for their recent support. It was almost 2 years ago that I reached out to ask for assistance to care for my cousins estate after his unexpected death. There was no will and his estate was somewhat complicated. Adding to that complexity was the fact that my cousin lived in KY and I in Illinois. Tom worked with me to address all that needed to be done and was very professional and responsive. Although we never actually met in person, I felt he had the best interest of myself, and my cousin, in mind at all times. I am thankful for the support and could not have made it through this process without him. Thank you!

I've worked in the legal field for 30 years and I've known Tom Stone for more than 25 years. He has drafted estate planning documents not only for me but for family members and friends. He takes the time necessary to listen to his clients, to gather all of the information needed, and prepares high quality, professional estate planning documents that I know comport with my wishes and which I can rely upon to take care of my family. When people ask me for a recommendation for an estate planning attorney, I never hesitate to give them Tom's name.

Tom prepared a will for me. He made the process simple, quick and easy. I'm so thankful that its done and it's one less worry for me.

I had a very positive experience with the Stone Legal Group. Making out a Will can be very personal and at times emotional. Tom was very thorough and actually made it quite easy. I feel good that I have everything in place for my family for their future. Thank you Tom.

Tom provided great insight and direction in multiple situations. He helped me navigate the administrators responsibilities for my father's estate. He explained different options for distribution of assets. Personally he helped to amend my Living Trust and other documents. His advice is non biased but thoughtful. I would and have recommended him to colleagues and friends.
