Mr. Payne has done a great job helping us through the years with wills and other legal matters. He's our go to go guy and I would definitely recommend him for sound advice.


My two siblings and I picked Cleve to assist us with our late Mother's affairs. Although her papers were in order, we still needed an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to guide us through any mine field. I really don't know what we would of done without Cleve and Pam's assistance.


I worked with Cleve and Pam to prepare a will and other legal documents for me. The entire process was very efficient, and they were very helpful in answering all of the questions I had. I highly recommend Cleve for your legal needs.
