What do our probate clients say about us?

LeonardVery helpful and responsive to questions, calls and requests!

Regrettably, I lost my mother in 2015 and was a bit lost on how to handle probate in Utah. I live in another state as do my siblings and we were not sure where to turn for help and counsel. In doing some internet based research we came across the website for Helgesen, Houtz & Jones. The site helped provide a foundation of information and gave us the confidence to call and request information. This turned out to be a very good choice! Everyone was very helpful and responsive to questions, calls, requests... I never felt like a case file and they never lost a personal touch. My business is now concluded with this firm and I would highly recommend them to others! Best regards, Len
