Attentive Representation Marked By Compassion

People call attorneys when their situations are serious and they are facing something important. Making your will, going through the probate process or entering a real estate transaction: These are serious situations. For most people seeking out legal counsel to help with these situations, it is important to be treated like a human, not like a case number. You want to be heard and be treated with compassion.

When you work with Craighead & Martin, PLLC, Joanne will take the time to listen to you and understand your situation. She will provide strong legal counsel, marked by honesty and candor, and she will remain with you through every aspect of your legal matter.
