What Our Clients Say . . .

"Estate planning can be an emotional and technical roller coaster ride, so many things to consider, so many choices to make. Merilyn Steele helped ease the pain of going through this process. She was patient, understanding and insightful. She offered many options to us that we were unaware existed and could only be discovered through her expertise. Something we truly dreaded embarking on became very manageable and doable with Merilyn. We highly recommend Merilyn and the entire Messner Steele Firm to our family and closest friends and anyone who would benefit from her services."
