“Because I had a child with special needs, guardianships, transition planning and special needs estate planning are near and dear to my heart. I sit with clients to discuss their situation, helping them attain peace of mind and approach the future with confidence knowing they have done all you can to ensure the highest quality of life.” — Annette Hines
