Vicknair Law Firm


Ted Vicknair did an outstanding job advising us and preparing our trust and estate documents under very challenging circumstances: my partner and I are both business lawyers and not married, with one of us having kids from a prior relationship. Add to that real estate that we separately own in 3 different states, residency in 2 states, multiple companies that we own individually, and 1 existing trust. Ted patiently and expertly guided us through our existing trust amendment, and created 2 new trusts for us, along with an entire new set of wills, medical powers of attorney, etc. We also very much appreciated that he’s an expert in tax law as well, being both a tax attorney (which is a separate specialty) and a CPA. So, working with Ted was like having 3 professionals in 1 advising on our estate planning. We highly recommend Ted Vicknair to any person seeking a highly qualified attorney for their trust, estate and tax needs, no matter how complicated your affairs may be.
