What Clients Are Saying

Ted Schofner has handled our affairs for years. He assisted us in our estate planning which included getting our wills and documents in order. Ted also assisted my mom with her affairs. She is older and he took time and patience explaining everything she was signing. He always returns calls and emails promptly to discuss any questions you may have. I would highly recommend Ted as the go to attorney that will provide you with quality and courteous service.

Gregg Poole and Greg Best

As an attorney myself, I am very particular about whom I would hire for my own family. I worked with Ted Schofner to represent my 87-year-old father in evaluating a care program that would take into account his needs as he continues to age. Ted is extremely sensitive to the elderly and their families and the challenges they face. I have every confidence in Ted’s professional competence, and recommend his services without reservation.


I went to Mr Schofner when my Dad’s health was starting to fail to help me sort out what I needed to be aware of, not knowing anything about wills or probate matters. He was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns. When my Dad passed away, the process went smoothly. But most of all Mr. Schofner was compassionate and caring during such a difficult time. Now I use him as I need to make sure all my legal matters are in place as I get older. I highly recommend him.
