How Can We Help You ?
I had no idea estate planning was so important until my mom was diagnosed with cancer and had 6 weeks to live. A neighbor recommended Nicholas Giuditta. The first phone call and meeting sealed the deal. His compassion, understanding, and willingness to guide me thru this process when time was of the essence lifted a large burden off of my shoulders. Estate planning at any time is overwhelming but Nick was there with professional guidance and a shoulder to lean on every step of the way. He was always willing to answer any questions, give legal advice, and assist in handling a lot of family drama. I was so pleased with Nick’s services, that my husband and I actually did ‘our’ estate planning with Nick. I would highly recommend Nicholas Giuditta! You not only receive the best professional help but also make a friend in the process!
I hired Nick Giuditta to settle legal issues regarding my mother’s estate. I found him to be a very knowledgeable and capable attorney who carefully listened to the problems about my mother’s estate, asked questions, and he took the time to explain my options and the pros and cons of each possible outcome. I also found him to be always professional, diligent, efficient and transparent in keeping me informed as to everything he was working on that led to the ultimate goal of fairly settling all of the legal issues on my mother’s estate. He met and exceeded all of my expectations. I would hire him again to represent me, and I would not hesitate to recommend Nick’s legal talents, skills and abilities to any person.
