I have known Eido Walny for over a decade.  He is a cutting edge Trust and Estates & Family Estate Planning attorney.  I have referred business to him and have never been disappointed.  I truly appreciate the fact that his firm is so focused.  Not only a great attorney but he is even a better common sense counselor.  If you need estate planning or business succession planning, you need to have an initial consultation with Eido.
