- David Gutierrez Business Owner, Valley Center, CA

I recently had Tara Cheever put together an estate plan for me that includes a will, trust and powers of attorney for both financial matters and health care. I was very impressed by Tara, her knowledge and her process for accomplishing our goals. She’s professional, kind and empathetic. One thing she did after the completion of my plan was offer me the opportunity to do a legacy tape for my family. Tara asked questions and I answered them. I was a little leery before I did it, but am so glad I did. It’s just something extra to leave to your family as a way of expressing your love for them.
