From Our Clients

“My 97 year old aunt needed to make some adjustments to her estate. Attorney Joyce Cheeks was very patient, detailed and understanding throughout the entire process. Because of Attorney Cheeks’ effienciency in this matter, things went very smooth for our family after the death of our aunt. Without such guidance and expertise, things would have gone awry within our large family. I am forever grateful to The Cheeks Law Firm.”
