My husband owned a business in which I had not been actively involved; then, suddenly at his death, the business became mine.  Thankfully, Anne and Victoria were there for me from day one, walking me through the process of administering my husband’s estate and my taking on his business.  Anne and Victoria answered every question and concern I had, no matter how small, and their explanations not only helped me to easily understand the how’s but also clearly the why’s.  I felt so comfortable talking to them; they were my champions from the start, and with them by my side, I was able to work through all of the issues of my husband’s administration, the succession of the business and my own personal planning.  I could never have made it through it all without them.


I interviewed two attorneys before engaging Victoria Tillman to help me with my estate planning and small business needs. Ms. Tillman is an excellent attorney who goes above and beyond for her client. She is very knowledgeable and professional and can present very complicated tax and trust issues in a way that is easy to understand. Victoria listened to my objectives and she helped me decide how to handle complicated estate issues. She always responds promptly to my email messages and telephone calls. Victoria cares about the people she represents. She is an amazing attorney. I HIGHLY recommend Victoria Tillman.


Mr. McKenrick did an outstanding job taking care of our case. He was always available to answer questions when they would arise. He took care of everything in a very timely manner and kept us in the loop about what was going on. He is very knowledgeable and cares a lot about his clients. I would highly reccommend Mr. McKenrick and will be using him again in the future.
