I scheduled a consultation to discuss estate planning for a family member. Attorney Norton was very helpful and knowledgeable. She shared additional resources and support. I now have a plan to move forward. I appreciate her attention to detail, her deep knowledge of the subject matter, and her support. I also found the preparation videos extremely helpful. Many Thanks.

Attorney Jennifer Norton was and is GOD sent. She willingly helped me help a Senior Citizen who needed urgent advice, directions, and clarity on completing her Trust. She was very, very knowledgeable about every question I had. What I appreciated most was her patience with my lack of knowledge on all my legal questions. I strongly recommend Attorney Jennifer Norton for all your legal concerns especially those concerning Senior Citizens. She is honest and has compassion for Senior Citizens. Her communication style is that of teaching, informing, and helping. If you need a great Attorney for a Senior Citizen in your family or your friends call Attorney Jennifer Norton.

I had questions about a trust made years ago. The first attorney I talked to overcomplicated it. Jennifer answered my questions in 15 minutes and gave me good guidance on the process when the time comes. Very helpful!

I reached out to Norton Estate Planning to get some advice on a few things regarding my mom. I was contacted via email and had an appointment set up immediately. I was advised of a 30 minute FREE consultation. I was contacted by Jennifer and she informed me of the necessary steps to take and that I did not need an attorney for that. Impressed is not even a strong enough word for the professional service that I received! She’s literally God sent! I would definitely recommend her for your planning needs! Thank you so much Jennifer!
