I was surprised at the level of follow up and attention to completion of my project. Not used to that in todays environment.

Cathy, thanks so very much for all of your assistance in preparing my Mom's Medicaid application! Your expertise and continued positivity really made the process painless for us! Any time I had a question, you were available to discuss the answers! We are so very appreciative for all of your help! Thanks so very much.


Appreciate the follow up calls from Barbara to complete our plans.  Cathy Sears was very helpful with additional issues not initially discussed.

Was a real pleasure working with Cathy Sears on our estate documents. When a snag occurred with the recording of the property deed she was there - providing excellent support and guidance even when I went out on my own to solve the problem.  She is a fine up and coming attorney in every way. Would recommend her services to anyone.

- Diane

Extremely thorough. I thought I was in a movie...because all was unbelievably good!!! You are everything Gloria said you were. Thanks more than I can say!

- Gloria and Gene

My wife and I have been working with Helena Mock since 2004, We have over that time received excellent advice, professional representation and quick responses to our concerns. Helena has been always available to answer our questions, and has kept us up to date on any changes to the law regarding our family trust. We especially like the added benefit of her support of the local community, such as the Williamsburg Symphony.

I was looking for a new estate attorney when a friend recommended Ms. Mock and the Peninsula Center for Estate & Lifelong Planning. Best recommendation I have ever been given.

Ms. Mock, and her entire staff, are extremely knowledgeable, kind and thoughtful. Ms. Mock helped guide me through a maze of legal options versus my very specific wishes. When I needed to make changes to my estate plan, Ms. Mock again listened to my wishes to help me achieve my goals and translated those changes into a plan that meets all of my requirements and wishes. I now have an estate plan that exactly fits what I wanted and I can rest easy.

I absolutely recommend Ms. Mock and the Peninsula Center for Estate and Lifelong Planning. If I could give more than a five-star rating I would.

- Carol Abbott

I have worked with Helena Mock and TPC for ten years. Helena and her staff, primarily Barbara Armstrong, her paralegal, have been exemplary in a difficult business. Having worked with two other firms before them, I can say without equivocation that they are the best in the area.
They are responsive, understanding, competent and resourceful and of course experienced.

- L. Arnold Boyd

My husband and I met with Helena Mock in 2009 to update our wills and documents to make it easier on our only daughter. Little did I know that our actions would make it easier on me later.

My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer in April 2013 and died on September 22, 2013. Ms Mock and her excellent staff were compassionate, knowledgeable and very professional. They assisted me in every step that I had to make as my husband's executrix. It is really hard to grieve and complete all the documents in a timely matter too.

After I met all my responsibilities as executrix, I worked with Ms Mock again regarding estate planning and to set up my Revocable Trust. The staff was amazing and very helpful. Even now 2018, Barbara Armstrong, paralegal assists me with documents when selling my husband's property in Texas that I inherited.

Ms Mock believes in long term relationships and I can testify I have experienced a wonderful relationship with Ms Mock and staff since 2009. I even take them homemade Lemon Pound Cake for the holidays and they send cards to me especially on my birthday.
