Attorney Geerdes is a very accomplished professional. She is more knowledgeable about the legal implications of estate issues, asset protection and trusts and wills than any other estate attorneys I have talked to. We have two attorneys in our family and they recommend attorney Geerdes. I would recommend her to anyone! - Donald
