Hear What Our Clients are Saying

  • Best Estate Planning Lawyer Around

    "We hired Bill after interviewing 4 attorneys in town. We found Bill to be the most competent, compassionate, understanding and efficient. In addition to being an excellent estate counsel, he's also an excellent accountant and this combination is crucial for proper estate counsel. He's very accessible, anticipates issues before they arise. It was a complicated estate which he guided us through with ease. We were so pleased with his services that we hired him for our own estate preparation. Bill also employs a staff that match his high standards. Both his assistants and paralegals were excellent and very personable. I'd hire him again (and again) without hesitation. Thanks Bill!"

    Andrew, St. Pete Beach

  • Depth of Knowledge and Expertise

    "I've had the pleasure of working with Bill McQueen and his team on behalf of my client as a Family Office Manager. The quality of every interaction is consistent in the promptness of response, the depth of knowledge and expertise, and an immense satisfaction knowing that Bill has a tremendous understanding of my client's issues and concerns. His ability to preempt issues and be strategic in addressing these has helped us stay ahead of the curve ball. Katie and Nicole on his team are most personable and so very helpful! My client and I are delighted to be working with Bill McQueen."

    Pavita, St. Petersburg

  • The Best in the Industry

    "This experience and attention to detail has made me feel as though for the first time in my life that my estate is going to be handled with perfection. I highly recommend getting your legacy protected by the BEST in the industry...Bill McQueen along with his support staff have exceeded our expectations! A wonderful group of true professionals! And we just love Katie H."

    Jillian, St. Petersburg

  • Truly My BFFs

    "When my husband died I had no clue what to do. The one thing he always told me when he passed was to call Bill McQueen immediately. My husband had been in business for over 40 years in St. Pete and I figured he knew what he was talking about. Legacy Protection Lawyers did everything they could, and more, to help me with every detail. They were so kind and attentive and were never to busy to talk me thru whatever I needed. I could never thank them enough for their kindness and patience. They are truly my BFF's.

    Mary-Louise, St. Petersburg

  • Smart, Thorough, Current, Extremely Responsive...and Compassionate

    "My family needed to re-do virtually all of my mother's legal documents, do substantial work on her finances, and apply for VA A&A, as my mother's health declined, and we had to move her into assisted living. Not only did Bill do an absolutely amazing job with all of this with incredible expertise and efficiency, he also was extremely responsive at every (and I mean EVERY) turn. Not a question, need, suddenly-pressing deadline, or otherwise came up that Bill did not jump on it - and with remarkable thoroughness. Bill has known what to do, how to do it, and where nuances have been necessary in each and every step of this 18-month journey. I feel so much more comfortable with my mother's legal documents and legal work overall, and - beyond that - following all the time and effort Bill and I put into applying for VA A&A for my mom, the benefits were awarded - saving my family more than $12,000 a year in paying for my mom's care. ...When one is the midst of doing all he can to help an aging parent in failing health, compassion and concern certainly help. I would recommend Bill to anyone who needs a lawyer - whether a specialist in elder law or otherwise. Thank you so very much, Bill - for what you have done as an attorney AND who you are as a human being."

    Wayne, New York City, NY

  • Professionalism and Caring Manner

    "After hitting a brick wall with my parents estate I turned to Bill McQueen and his incredible assistants Nicole Bell and Nicole Murphy. From day one they took the reins and I felt as if a tremendous weight was lifted off my shoulders. They kept me informed with all the issues and progress as we went along. I can't say enough good things about their professionalism and caring manner. They are my law firm from now on. Thank you so much for all you did!"

    Paul, Florida

  • An AWESOME Team

    "Bill McQueen, Nicole Murphy, and Nicole Bell are an AWESOME team...professional, courteous, efficient, compassionate. Reviewing, learning, and planning the next steps during an extremely emotional time is a very difficult task. I'm grateful my mom found and trusted them so I too can know and trust them. What better endorsement than "mother knows best". I am grateful to this team for all they do and continue to do...and they are highly recommended by me!"

    Johnnie, Wesley Chapel, Florida

  • Exceptional, Personal and Professional Attorney on All Levels

    "Bill McQueen was kind enough to handle my late brother's estate last year, and I can't say enough good things about his expertise and caring during this time of sorrow. I live in another state, and Bill kept me informed of what should be done every step of the way, through phone calls, emails and other documents. His attention to detail as well as knowledge in resolving issues gave me a great sense of comfort. Bill exemplifies the true professional in his trade, and I highly recommend his services. Bill is a true friend when you need someone the most."

    Sylvia, Suwanee, Georgia

  • Wonderful Experience with Legacy

    "Bill and his team did a great job with my wife and I's wills. They were very professional and had everything in order right away. We had a wonderful experience with Legacy!"

    Scott, St. Petersburg

  • Unique Multifaceted Experience

    "Bill handled my mother's estate closure including all fillings of the trust and obtaining a trust tax ID number. He advised on asset distribution with siblings. In general, he made a complicated procedure extremely smooth. His legal expertise, accounting knowledge, and funeral home experience make Bill unique in the field."

    Kern, St. Petersburg, Florida

  • The Most Professional and Outstanding Attorney

    "William McQueen was recommended to me by a friend who has worked in the legal field for several years. She advised he is outstanding and the best of the best. Mr. McQueen found and corrected many errors and omissions in my previously filed Will/Trust. He solved many problems and errors created by someone else who handled the will/trust. He is friendly, personable and stresses importance of contacting him for any questions or issues I may have. I have complete faith and trust in Mr. McQueen."

    Marjorie, St. Petersburg, Florida

  • Estate Planning Lawyer

    "Mr. Siddall was my Estate Planning lawyer. He is extremely knowledgeable on the law. He is prompt in returning calls and emails. He took the time to listen and understand our estate planning needs. At the end, he gave us a portfolio that took care of every contingency. Additionally, he kept in touch even when the assignment ended to see if we had any questions."

    Texas Client

  • Very Professional and Helpful

    "My husband and I needed a trust/will and Fidelity recommended David Siddall as one of many attorneys. David was very professional, had great follow-up and answered any questions we had. I would recommend him."

    Arizona Client

  • Demystifying a Trust

    "I expect an attorney to be knowledgeable and professional but David brings to a client insightful consultation. His questions are asked in an unobtrusive way to get us to really think about all the potential issues and concerns with setting up a trust and how to plan for changes. He was hands-on and took such care to explain complicated provisions and potential tax treatment. He was always responsive and met every deliverable. I have complete faith and trust in his legal acumen and his advice."

    Linda, a Texas Client

Knowledgeable, Responsive, Reliable, Diligent and Compassionate.

Our boutique law firm consists of six practicing estate and trust, litigation, tax and business attorneys. Our philosophy is to provide the highest levels of legal counsel, expertise and service to our clients. 

Knowledgeable, Responsive, Reliable, Diligent and Compassionate are the words most often heard from our clients when they describe our firm. Knowledgeable because our team is intelligent and well-informed and has an understanding of this area of the law that comes with experience or education. Responsive because we are always quick to react to our client’s questions and answer their questions. Reliable because we are consistently good in our quality of work or performance and thus able to be trusted. Diligent because we work hard and are attentive and persistent in doing our job. Compassionate because we have a desire to help our clients.

Approximately half of our attorneys practice in the areas of tax, estate and trust planning and administration, asset protection and business exit planning. The rest of our attorneys focus on trust, estate, and guardianship litigation. By limiting their law practice to these areas, our attorneys actually can provide our clients with more value. Our combination of expertise means we can plan and protect our client’s family and business wealth so that they can prosper.

We do things differently. We make the complex simple, initiate the uncomfortable but necessary conversations and our entrepreneurial spirit drives us to deliver superior results. Fascinated by innovation, we strive to redefine the way we practice law every day.

We invite you to explore our website, or contact us directly to learn more about our firm and how we can help you.
