"Before my husband's passing, we worked with another estate planning attorney. We put into place estate planning documents to supplement a special needs trust (SNT) that a paralegal had helped us establish for my husband's benefit following his diagnosis of a critical illness. After my husband died, I didn't feel that I was getting the assistance I needed to administer my husband's SNT, which was both frustrating and upsetting. I was very distraught when I sought a second opinion from Attorney Rodney J. ("Rod") Hatley, who was personally referred to me by another attorney with whom I was working. Rod gave me his undivided attention, reviewed the information I provided, and was able to advise me as to the steps necessary to administer my husband's SNT. I cannot say enough about Rod's integrity, empathy, and his ability to resolve difficult problems calmly and efficiently. Rod is "one in a million" and will always put the care and interests of his clients first so that no client's family has to go through the challenges of conservatorship or probate when a loved one becomes mentally disabled or passes without proper planning."
“Rod was happy to review the trust I had set up before I met him. He explained the pros and cons of how the trust documents were worded. I feel confident in following his advice and counsel. I also like the fact that he served in the military and comes highly recommend by a colleague.”

“Rodney J. Hatley did a trust for my husband and I. It was done in the most unique way. He is very detailed in his work and leaves nothing for you to guess about. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a trust.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Rod Hatley on a number of client cases. In addition we co-presented several workshops for professionals over several years. I have always found that Rod places a high degree of emphasis on detail and accuracy. He works hard to make sure that clients get the outcomes they want. No stone is left unturned when you collaborate with Rod.”

“Working with Rod and team on my Living Trust was seamless. They guided me through the process and all my questions were answered. They were professional and truly cared that I understood everything along the way. I was a bit overwhelmed with the process yet Rod was able to counsel me and we got the job done!”
