"Couldn't ask for more in our estate planning process than the expertise, hard work and individualized attention given by Cory Howes. He uses a very clear and comprehensive method to learn about your needs and gather necessary information. The follow-up emails, phone calls and design meeting allow for maximum efficiency toward creation of the final documents. Finally, the signing meeting is smooth, informative and effortless for the significant number of documents that are reviewed and signed. I am astounded by the exceptionally low typo/correction rate that we encountered; most every document was error-free when we got them for review the day before signing. Amazing. Finally, Cory is a knowledgeable and dependable person yet thoughtful, listening and skillful in interpreting and writing. This firm and particularly the lawyer with whom we had the pleasure to work, Cory Howes, made an otherwise daunting task positive and easy. Our strongest of endorsements for Estate Planning with Forrest Firm in Raleigh."

"The Forrest Firm assisted my company with the divestiture of our stores. The timeline was aggressive but they jumped right in. John Love was instrumental in helping us work quickly and effectively to get to closing. Pricing was fair and clearly communicated along the way.....which was a refreshing change. The advice I received was sound, which mitigated our risks post-closing. We will definitely call the Forrest Firm for our next transaction.n nDoug MorgannFranchise Owner, Pandora Jewelry"
