Our client's reviews

It was time to update/review our wills, so we scheduled an appointment with Ana. We reviewed all legal aspects.....difference between our will and a trust, financial power of attorney (POA), health care POA, etc. We covered all needed aspects for our estate planning needs. It's a very comforting feeling to know that, should we need legal help/guidance, that we have access to people we trust who have our best interest at heart....and the best around.

Incredible Geriatric Law and Estate Planning. Without reservation, I recommend Ana M. Prendergast for any family law related legal needs you may have. They are unquestionably the best family law practice in Asheville.
Ana provided my 88 year old mother with exceptional service in the execution of all here legal documents including a Medical Directive, Power of Attorney and her Will. Answered all questions in a kind and considerate manor. She eliminated any anxiety early in the meetings and turned the process into one that gave my Mom both comfort and confidence. I was so personally impressed that I decided to use Ana for all my personal legal needs. I have and will continue to recommend her services to others.
We used Ana for my mother's will and end of life documents after she moved here from another state. Ana's demeanor was friendly, which put us at ease, and her thoroughness and clear explanations assured us. I am glad we used Ana for this important element in her estate planning. She was great.
