"As a small business owner, it’s my privilege to recommend Opton & Galton for wise counsel and gracious customer service. I’ve used the firm both professionally and personally for 20+ years and they have been unfailing in their competent problem solving from the not so difficult (thanks to their help) to the complex. Highly and happily recommended!"

Kent Layden

Estate Planning

"I was introduced to the law firm of Opton & Galton after my husband passed away, leaving an estate that was a total mess. They took on the challenge of unraveling everything my husband had left undone. I was unaware of what was going on until I came to this firm. Without them I would have lost everything I had and everything we worked for. I am grateful every day for their expertise and knowledge of the law, along with the kindness they showed me, including the whole staff."

He understood the magnitude of this change on my and my son’s life and advised me in a way that respected both the personal and legal challenges I was facing. He was there for me every step of the way as I started my new life."


"Michael Opton is one of those attorneys that everyone hopes to hire when you need good legal support and representation. He brings professionalism, experience, intelligence, and total integrity which I have learned is so important in and outside of court. He is a rare talent in the legal arena and I would recommend him highly to anyone seeking an optimal result."
