Testimonials

On behalf of my siblings and myself, I want to thank Tim Batdorf for his advice, expertise and professionalism. Tim went above and beyond what would normally occur between client and attorney. His continued interest in my family is appreciated more than can be put into words.

It was scary to really look at how I was planning to take care of my daughter if I were to die because I felt shame that I hadn’t done a good job.  Tim made it easier for me by taking me through the steps so I could see things clearly and make good decisions about what to do next.  I feel good after having done this and feel secure knowing that Tim is there to walk with me and my family in the future.
