Our family had nothing but an outstanding experience with working with Ruth. We did all our estate planning , wills, trusts . She walked us through everything and answered all questions . So worth doing and the peace of mind is everything. The best thing is Ruth is village resident it was so comfortable and convenient . Not only is she local but her office is in the heart of the village of Williamsville in the office of Wilcox financial so it’s a double bonus we all worked together because we use Wilcox financial who are amazing. Planning your will and trusts seems like such an overwhelming task we waited and it always weighed heavy to get it done so relieved to have them taking care of us.
