Had we known how painless he would make the process, we would never have procrastinated. My husband and I engaged Hank Weatherby's services last year to help us plan for our children and grandchildren. As this is my second marriage and the third for my husband, with children from each marriage, we had thought this would be a very stressful process. Hank immediately put us at ease. He provided helpful materials that helped us formulate our goals. He provided practical examples and explanations for legal concepts that would otherwise have been difficult to understand. We had been avoiding this task for several years. Hank guided us through every step of the process and made what had been an overwhelmingly complex matter seem straight-forward and understandable. He never imposed his personal views. Rather, he helped us understand our wishes (which we really hadn't thought through before) and then implemented them. We've been delighted with the outcome and the ongoing communications and support. Hank is proactive and always accessible to answer questions. We highly recommend his services

Weatherby & Associates showed genuine concern over our personal situation, plans, and desires, allowing a comfortable feeling that our planning would meet all our expectations.
It was an open presentation, not only to me, by to my whole involved family. There was nothing that wasn't fully explained, and no questions that went unanswered.
The staff and counselors at Weatherby & Associates have always been there to advise me on affairs concerning my father's estate and have always answered my questions and pointed me in the right direction.
Hank and his staff are sticklers for detail which represents to me a feeling of safeness that everything is being done correctly and there is no need to worry or be concerned.

My experience with Weatherby & Associates far exceeded my expectations. I remortgaged my home and showed my Estate Planning book to other law firms and they said they were the finest set of documents they have ever seen.
We were facing heavy medical expenses with a modest inheritance and little to no income. Hank's advice to establish a living estate was brilliant and his continued advice in handling our finances has been a blessing. As our health deteriorates, I'm confident that his knowledge in these areas will help us to live our final years with dignity and without placing a burden on our children.
Weatherby & Associates recommended we have a living trust. This appears to be a wonderful solution to the disposition of our assets, first to the surviving spouse and ultimately to our heirs.

I was "lost" and now I am "found". I didn't know where to turn when my spouse was in assisted living and time (3) year long-term care policy was getting depleted.
The firm and associates are always willing to help answer questions and provide information that covers my needs.
Hank and his staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They have taken time to research problems in depth before giving advice. I regard my relationship as more than merely a client/lawyer relationship.
Weatherby & Associates have taken care of our estate planning needs for over 15 years. Hank continually keeps us informed on relevant changes to state and federal tax law, etc., and keeps our trusts up to date. His annual seminars for trustees and beneficiaries are extremely helpful and have relieved us of much anxiety as we advance in age. We believe in him and trust him.
