When you work with me, our relationship doesn’t end the second you walk out my doors. I treat my clients like good friends who I will see again, and they continue to return because of my approach.
In my 40 years of practicing law, I've learned that there truly is no substitute for experience. Even so, each new case I take on feels like a new opportunity and a chance to impact real lives.
It’s never too early to secure a plan for yourself or your family. I have a passion for helping people prepare for the years ahead and setting a clear path for the road of life when it can otherwise be foggy. If you have goals you’d like to achieve, let’s develop a strategy to achieve them together.
There is a certain science to planning ahead, and I’ve spent more than 40 years perfecting it. If you have a goal, whether it be short-term or long-term, call me and let’s talk about it.
Whether you need help getting your estate in order or you are preparing for the end of a life, an experienced lawyer can make a difference every step of the way. At my law firm, that’s what I do. I help people, and I take the stress out of organizing a decision that could not only affect the rest of your life but your legacy long after you’re gone.
Probate — or the process of verifying a will — can get extremely messy. You can make this already difficult time easier on your loved ones by working with me to establish a living trust now.
Investing in a trust now means simplifying financial decisions later. This handy legal tool ensures that your both your funding and possessions go exactly where you want them to go.
Creating a clear living trust gives you every advantage — especially when it comes to controlling your assets. After all, the clearer your wishes are laid out now, the easier it will be to carry them out later.
Attorney Stephen Cockriel was a god send to my family. He took a complicated mess and represented us with expert experience and professional wisdom... He was like working with Perry Mason.
Mr. Cockriel's communication skills made everything possible. He is very quick to return emails or phone calls... After meeting with him and working with him for so long, it is good to know that there are indeed great attorneys out there that aren't out for just the money.
