I first came to know about Kevin Lake from a personal reference from a longtime friend who is also an attorney. I was looking for help in the estate planning realm of law. I had suddenly found myself in charge of my grandmother’s financial future, and she was in need of an updated will, trust, power of attorney, and health care directives. I met with Kevin by myself first to “interview” him as well as learn more about what he would suggest for my grandmother’s current situation. I was immediately struck by his caring nature, his ability to explain complex legal terminology in a way that I could understand and in the vast experience that he brings to the table in regard to estate planning. He helped update all of my grandmother’s estate plans and took as much time as was needed to explain things to her so that she felt comfortable as well. Kevin was also there to help me as I had to put her wishes into place after her passing.
The initial experience that I had with Kevin led me to seek him out after my father’s passing to update my mother’s estate plan as well. As he had shown in our previous experience, he was kind, compassionate, and thorough in planning for just about every possible outcome in making an estate plan that would honor my mother’s wishes, as well as making the process for her survivors clear and concise, while avoiding probate and making sure that her assets would go to the places that she has chosen.
After having helped my mother, my wife and I also had Kevin draw up a will, living trust, powers of attorney, and health care directives for our family. I have recommended Kevin to fellow professional associates as well as other family members. Kevin, along with his staff, are tremendous people that bring the kind of expertise that one would want when dealing with a simple or complex estate plan as well as being kind, caring, and professional along the way.
I would highly recommend Kevin Lake to anyone who needs an estate plan prepared by an experienced professional attorney with the knowledge to make a customized plan for your specific needs.
