Client Reviews

Legacy Law Center was easy and comfortable to talk with . I was looking to get a will sit up and I’m relieved it’s finally done . I looked for a while for the right lawyer and when I talk with Legacy I knew I had found the right one!

Charles of Legacy Law has been excellent in helping my husband and me set up our trust. We felt confident in his knowledge of protecting our assets and writing our will. When we needed to make a slight change, Charles was ready and willing to help. I highly recommend Legacy Law!
Janice Schnurbusch
I contacted Legacy Law Center about estate questions I had and guidance. From the first call they were very responsive and set me up with a conference call with Mr. Moore. He called right on time, answered all my questions without rushing me and went over a few things I might have missed asking about. He didn't try to sell any of their services, just gave the guidance I needed. They were very upfront about the cost of the conference call. I appreciated that. It was easy talking with Mr. Moore, and if I need any more help on this or other matters I will be contacting him.
Charles is an excellent professional with in-depth knowledge of estate, probate, & trust law! I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of support in these areas!
William D Young
We were very pleased with the service we received from Mr. Moore. He took the time to answer all of our questions and explain the entire process step by step. We now have our Estate Plan finalized. We will definitely use Mr. Moore for any any other legal issues that may arise.

Chuck Moore was able to offer specific advice to help with a legal situation. He was easy to contact, and made time for me on short notice.
Michelle Klotzbach
We wanted to make a change in our living trust that Mr. Moore (Chuck) had created for us three years ago. This time of our working with Chuck and his staff was just as pleasant and easy as it was three years ago, when he created our living trust. Chuck answered all of our questions, and we got the information that we needed. Our amendment was finalized quickly, and everything went smoothly. We will recommend the Legacy Law Center to anyone who needs an estate plan to be created or assistance with a probate matter.
