William A. Simon, Attorney at Law , provides carefully customized wills and other estate and advance planning documents. Each is specifically created to accomplish your particular wishes and to meet your family's particular needs. Because they are created on an individual basis, rather than through a one-size-fits-all computer program, he guarantees satisfaction. He will keep working until you are fully satisfied.
