My husband and I were very satisfied provided by this office in the settling of our mother's estate. Mr. Worshtil was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. He quickly addressed any questions we had and answered emails in a timely manner. We were happy to have him on our side.

- Client

Great attorneys who helped me manage a complex estate issue while I was out of state. Extremely prompt in responding to my calls, friendly attorneys and staff, and they provided clear guidance and explanations for an estate case that had many complicating factors. Their great work allowed me to manage this issue without needing to travel back and forth to MD, as I could trust that they had everything under control. I would highly recommend this law firm!

- Client

I was provided with direct and honest communication regarding my estate planning questions. While my estate needs were modest and didn’t need further legal services; I was treated with respect and received full service.

- Client

Five Stars indeed! I found Estate Attorney Zachary W. Worshtil as well as the Staff at the Law Office of Ralph W. Powers Jr. PC to be exceptional in their knowledge, professionalism, and timeliness. Zachary demonstrated a great deal of patience with me while advising me through the Probate Process. I had no idea whatsoever as to how to engage the Register of Wills Office successfully in starting and completing the Probate Process. Zachary took the lead and kept me going. This fact was very important and relieving to me.

I would highly recommend this Law Office to anyone having a need in the areas of Estate Planning, Estate Law, and/or the Probate Process.

- Client

Most people I'm sure, myself included, have no idea what to do when a loved one passes away. This law firm was recommended to me by someone at the courthouse. The price was very reasonable, the office staff was very friendly and respectful, and they were there with me all the way to the end with good advice during each step in the process of dealing with my mother's estate. Thank you guys. I would highly recommend this law firm without hesitation.
