    I have such peace of mind having finally completed the process of making a will. What has seemed like a daunting task for years, was made easy by Paula Pierce, Attorney at Law. Her organizational skills and keen comprehension made the information gathering portion of the process painless, and she quickly drafted a will that perfectly encompassed my wishes and the necessary legalities. Thank you Paula for helping me check this off my list!
