Personalized Service
Embrace Technology

Estate planning can be an emotional and technical roller coaster ride, so many things to consider, so many choices to make. Merilyn Steele helped ease the pain of going through this process. She was patient, understanding and insightful. She offered many options to us that we were unaware existed and could only be discovered through her expertise. Something we truly dreaded embarking on became very manageable and doable with Merilyn. We highly recommend Merilyn and the entire Messner Steele Law Firm to our family and closest friends and anyone who would benefit from her services.

Let’s Connect.

If our Firm sounds like we are a good fit and we can assist you with your legal needs, let’s connect.! Upon request we provide referrals to highly competent professionals such as a CPA, CFP, CVA, or real estate agents/brokers, appraisers, valuators, insurance agents or legal experts in other areas of law. However, if you have already engaged your own trusted advisors we will join your team of consultants and collaborate with them on your estate planning or other legal issues.
