So Burlington, VT – Attorney Glenn Jarrett is proud to announce the opening of Jarrett Law Office, PLC. Glenn A. Jarrett, Esq. is the principal of Jarrett Law Office, PLC.
Attorney Jarrett states, “I am excited to have formed my own law firm to concentrate exclusively on estate planning, elder law, special needs planning and probate and trust administration. My firm is located at 1795 Williston Road, South Burlington, at the corner of Williston Road and Kennedy Drive. The move will allow me to focus on my area of practice without the distractions of unrelated areas of law.
Two experienced staff members from my former firm, Holly Keough and Sue Marcelle, are working with me to assure our clients the highest quality planning and assistance.
I am a member of WealthCounsel, a 10 year old organization with over 1,500 members nationwide. One of the strengths of the WealthCounsel organization is the membership, which helps members by sharing knowledge and making suggestions, when we have unusual issues. Our documents are excellent and extremely readable documents”.
Attorney Jarrett has been concentrating his practice in the areas of estate planning, elder law and special needs planning for over six years. He has prepared thousands of wills, trusts, medical directives and powers of attorney for his clients. He is one of a handful of attorneys in Vermont who also hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation. He is a CFP® practitioner, but limits his financial planning practice to estate planning.
