“Attorney Baler was recommended to us by our financial advisor. After a thorough review of our individual situation, Maria provided us with a comprehensive set of estate planning documents. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and tailored her recommendations to our specific needs. She made us very comfortable and confident in the results. As either laws or our situation change, it is reassuring to know that she is readily available for consultation. We highly recommend Attorney Baler and her firm.”
