When it was time to update our estate plan we turned to Kent Phelps.  We were only two days away from an extended trip overseas and needed it done fast but done right – especially with a child who has special needs.  Our documents were completed, signed, notarized and witnessed in a day! And we were confident it was done right because we had the help of an experienced attorney.  So grateful to Kent for going above and beyond so we could enjoy our trip with peace of mind!
Sarah & Andy Weir
We had known for many years that we needed an estate plan but just never got around to doing it.  Our son hired Kent Phelps to do his estate plan and encouraged us to contact Kent and get it done – so we did!   We immediately felt like Kent “got” our unique family situation and knew just what to do. We wish we had done this sooner but what a great feeling it is to know that what we’ve worked so hard for all these years will be protected and go to the right people when it’s our time.  We highly recommend Kent to anybody who needs an estate planning attorney.
Christine & Arvon Jones
Amazing In Every Way! Kent was amazing. He excelled in communication, and he was very understanding and listened to our unique situation. He explained everything in detail and was an amazing advocate for what we wanted to do. I would highly recommend him and his services. 
Eric Zimmerman
We were looking for an estate planning attorney and were referred to Kent Phelps by a friend.  We felt like he really listened to us as we talked about our family and business and what we wanted to accomplish.  Kent took the time to help us understand how living trusts and LLC’s work and how they can help protect our family and property.   The fixed fee approach was also very appealing to us. We were excited when we received our estate planning and LLC notebooks! Being able to have instructions in our trust that make sure our children receive what we leave them in a way that will truly help, rather than harm them has given us the peace of mind we were hoping for.  So grateful we found Kent!

Melissa Debnar
Kent’s unique perspective and focused expertise set him apart from his peers. His willingness to completely understand his client’s goals, and only then offer appropriate suggestions is refreshing. With an ability to take complex asset protection strategy and explain it in common context, it is easy to recommend him.
Tim Norris
Mr. Phelps’s services have been used to handle some amendments to business documents following my divorce. The amendments were thorough and filed in a timely manner. While this was a simple transaction, I fully expect the same level of effort on complex transactions. I highly recommend Mr. Phelps for legal needs.
Lance Weber
Kent has ideas and solutions that were very valuable to us. I have recommended Kent and his firm to many of my associates.
