Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
We have worked with Alycia Stack since October of 2014. Due to her friendly and caring demeanor and thorough and professionalism, we trusted her to support us with our guardianship custody challenges last year. She knocked the ball out of the park on the custody case and secured beneficial terms and conditions for our family. We selected WMS support for the follow-on adoption case and look forward to its completion.
In parallel to the custody cases, we trusted Alycia and WMS for our estate planning and POA needs. With the COVID emergencies and changing life issue, Alycia worked with us to document our wishes for our families needs. Thanks Alycia.
