What some clients said about Kenton Baker
We have received such helpful and practical advice re-planning our future. This complicated procedure was explained in an easily understood way and did much to put our fears at bay. It is an area where we did want to bury our head in the sand as all the jargon we had read seemed so very complicated to understand. We are putting into place suggestions made by Kenton and have complete faith in his expert handling of this in the future.
Kenton is excellent in his approach and attention to detail in explaining wills and power of attorney. These are complicated subjects to most people but his method of helping us to understand and avoid the pitfalls was second to none. He is very trustworthy and knowledgeable on these subjects which was very important to us and very precise in handling the process and paperwork involved. He has helped us update our wills and establish appropriate powers of attorney for us and other members of my family and I would recommend him to anyone in dealing with these subjects.
Kenton did our LPA,s, he was extremely patient and tolerant of our endless questions and enquiries. The whole process was handled on a friendly and professional manner. Would happily use again.
