Taliesen and everyone I worked with made the probate process straight forward. I knew nothing about probate before starting this process, but Taliesen explained everything, communicated in a timely manner, and answered all of my questions. I definitely recommend Birkholz & Associates for probate.

Jake was referred to me by another attorney. Jake specialized in what I needed to be done more so than the first attorney I had talked to. Jake helped restore my firearm rights. Very happy with the result of his work. Thanks again, Jake! Jake is professional and knowledgable, easy to talk to and will work hard to win your case.
