What Clients say about Kevin Drendel:

  • “Kevin developed estate planning instruments for us, and what we appreciated most about him is his ability to clearly translate what the dense legal language means, and what it's implications are to real life. He was also very attentive to any concerns we had about how things were structured even though we weren't necessarily able to articulate them well, and then pro-active in coming up with solutions, vs. just relying on boiler-plate templates. His style is very collaborative and supportive, and we were never afraid to ask questions, no matter how basic.” – JM & EV, Estate Planning Clients
