"I am an American expat living in the Czech Republic and navigating the Czech legal landscape, with my very limited command of the language, can be quite daunting. I was referred to Jeff Bussell while attending an Estate Planning Seminar and I engaged him for help in planning the future of my estate. Jeff prepared a Last Will and Testament for me that accurately accounted for all my assets while also meeting the legal requirements necessary for validity in both the Czech Republic and the U.S. Jeff is currently working on another unrelated legal matter for me. I am very satisfied with the quality of his work and have referred him to other expats in need of estate planning."
