“Britton Swank and her office provided excellent service, demonstrating professionalism and personal attention to all details in helping my parents with their wills/trusts and the execution of them after their sudden death.  Britton’s attitude to the work, her compassion and her in-depth knowledge is impressive. Not only was she there for my parents but also for myself and my siblings during the difficult time after their passing.  Requests were handled in a quick, efficient manner.  The transition was spot on! We couldn’t have asked for a better attorney!”

“It is with great confidence that I can personally recommend Britton Swank for your estate planning needs. Her personal commitment to my family in securing my quality of life while living and the transfer of my estate to my son upon my passing has been very comforting to everyone concerned. I would highly recommend her to others as you plan for today, tomorrow, and your legacy.”
Pam A.

“Once I met with Britton Swank, a huge burden was lifted.  She and her assistant not only walked me through the process, they were always available. I knew I was never alone and that gave me great comfort. Ms. Swank even met me at the bank on a Saturday morning when the branch manager was refusing me access to the safety deposit box even though I had all the court orders giving me full access.”
