He has the ability to explain foreign concepts in clear and understandable language, he focuses all his time and attention on the clients in front of him, he shares relevant information easily, he listens, and he gives the assurance that he will be a resource for you if you need his counsel in the future. I am extremely grateful for this continual support in our legal matters. Steve Avery provides excellent service to all his clients, and I recommend him highly." -Renay D.

"With only slightly over a week's notice, my husband learned he had to undergo heart surgery. No one is ever really prepared for this sort of news, but we were woefully unprepared to face possible medical issues given that our legal needs have been neglected for 30 years. We needed to update our Wills, create a family Trust, execute health directives and all the rest but felt it would be impossible to accomplish all these goals within our extremely small time-frame. Once we contacted Steve Avery, though, we started to believe in miracles. After our first consultation with Steve, the draft documents arrived almost immediately and were tailored specifically to the needs we discussed. During our second consult with Steve, all our questions and concerns were answered in a clear, concise and friendly manner. And thanks to Steve's amazing abilities and high sense of responsibility, all our documents were signed, notarized and filed three days before my husband's scheduled surgery. We will never be able to express sufficient gratitude to Steve for accommodating our seemingly impossible demands." -Barbara E.
