Bentley Nettles, Attorney at Law

My goal at Nettles Law is to help my clients with the important processes of estate and trust planning, probate, and other future planning needs. Having seen firsthand the problems that can happen when families lack proper end of life preparation, I am committed to helping families prepare for the future and the unexpected possibilities that can arise. With extensive Military Law background, I can represent Veterans dealing with disabilities, mental health issues, and other disability claims.

For dedicated disability and death planning for families and Veterans of all military branches, I can help with important estate and trust planning, probate issues, and Veterans disability and mental disability concerns.
