In the course of his estate planning practice, Teddy maintains a personal touch with his clients. Quite simply put, Teddy’s clients are considered friends. Every client receives an extremely high-quality customized estate plan, which is specifically designed to meet his/her needs. This is accomplished because the attorney personally meets with every client from start to finish, to acquire information about their situation, assets, and circumstances. This enables Teddy to spot legal issues that may be overlooked by other firms with less of a personal connection to their clients. The result is that Teddy can give legal advice and make recommendations that are tailor-made for each client to mitigate legal problems and unnecessary taxes. On many occasions, this can save the client taxes, fees, emotional trauma, time, and unnecessary legal issues.
Teddy’s practice area also covers both routine and complex trust administrations and Probates when people pass away with either no will or a will. Teddy’s practice is also devoted to Will and Trust Disputes and Elder Abuse Litigation.

"Most of my clients come from referrals and the network of trusted advisors I have assembled over the years. My clients are my number one priority, and spending time with them to get to know them and their situation is what is most important to me. Whether you have a simple question or a complicated situation, I work hard to get the facts and make a recommendation that suits your legal and nonlegal needs. I try to think outside the box not just for the correct legal answer, but to assess the practical solutions that might make common sense in your situation. It is also important for a good attorney to spot peripheral legal issues that might have an impact on your situation at hand. In my practice, I strive to spot those peripheral issues and consult with other attorneys and advisors as needed to ensure the best result for my clients. As an Attorney, it is my job to give legal advice, but I also think it is important to counsel my client on business and nonlegal matters as well. As a Lawyer and Counselor, I take this part of my job very seriously, and it is what I believe sets me apart from others in my field." - Teddy McNamara
