It was a pleasure to work with you. I am the current chair of the Oregon Banker’s Trust Committee. We had a meeting earlier this week and I shared with trust officers from various banks about our experience with you and how you “blew our socks off!”

Vice President | Sr. Trust Officer , U.S. Bank Private Wealth Management

In only a couple of hours Leslie Lawson located heirs in a probate matter that had not been in touch with their father (or his family) for over 35 years! Her expertise and efforts saved my client valuable time and money. I will hire Leslie again in a heartbeat the next time a client needs assistance tracking down long lost relatives.

Several people stopped [the planner] at the GFO to tell me they thought you were the best speaker we have had in ages!” Well, thank you very much, GFO!
