My two siblings and I picked Cleve to assist us with our late Mother's affairs. Although her papers were in order, we still needed an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to guide us through any mine field. I really don't know what we would of done without Cleve and Pam's assistance.

I worked with Cleve and Pam to prepare a will and other legal documents for me. The entire process was very efficient, and they were very helpful in answering all of the questions I had. I highly recommend Cleve for your legal needs.

Cleve Payne has helped us write and later update relatively complicated wills. This year he efficiently handled probate for the estate of a family member. He and assistant Pam are professional, caring and competent.

Mr. Payne was very professional while he handled the probating on my husband's will and made sure that I received all of the assets and documents that were due to me quickly and made the whole process as simple and understandable as I think it could be. I highly recommend him as a lawyer.

I worked recently with Clev and Pam on my Will and Medical Directives. The entire experience was very efficient and professional. They not only provided the required documents and information but they provided valuable legal advice in the both of these area. In addition, I am a US citizen working overseas in Southeast Asia and the team was very accommodating for the difference in time zones and kept me informed along the whole way. Overall, I am very impressed with this team and would recommend them to anyone who needs legal advice and preparation of required documents!

Our family has worked with Mr. Payne and Ms. Greer since 2005. They demonstrated compassion and expertise working with the probate system, setting up wills and providing advice. It is very refreshing to have someone who not only has knowledge but also demonstrates care.

My sister and I had a problem with our mother's will and needed assistance in going through probate. Mr. Payne was very patient with us and guided us through the process. Originally, we were going to be co-executors, but ended up with myself be designated as administrator of her estate. The simplicity of the reasonable payment and receiving a month statement was very much appreciated. Periodically, I received a call from Mr. Payne or Pam letting me know where we were in the process. That was very comforting to have this information and knowing that someone was walking beside us in this process.
