Planning for your Future
At Kellogg & Palzer, P.C., our mission is to understand our clients' needs and the external factors affecting them so that we may professionally represent them throughout the legal process. As we are a smaller firm, each of our clients receives individual attention, rather than being shuffled around as they may be at a larger firm. We strive to build long-term relationships with our clients so that we can better understand their legal needs, both now and in the future.
Our Approach To The Practice Of Law
Our goal is open communication of our legal knowledge and experience, and to relate that to our clients in "real life" language so they can understand it — thereby enabling our clients to make well-informed decisions for themselves. Our approach is to provide a personalized attorney-client relationship based on each client's unique concerns and requirements. Our philosophy is based on our commitment to provide experienced advice to our clients.
At Kellogg & Palzer, P.C., we constantly seek to improve our performance in order to be prepared for the challenges facing our clients. Our work environment is based on a diligent work effort, community involvement by volunteering our services to a variety of nonprofit organizations, and a strong commitment to our families, our community and the integrity of the legal profession.

I met with Jeffrey Palzer several times while helping my parents setup Wills / Trust and do estate planning. My parents had started the process themselves but ran into health issues and needed help completing it. Jeff was a huge help, very informed, and went out of his way to make it easy for my parents to sign paperwork, including bringing notaries and witnesses out to my parents at their assisted living facility. He explained everything to myself and them and was available on short notice. Highly recommended! Matthew D. Google Review - November 2016
I hired Jeff to do some work for me on my LLC. I had used an online service (big mistake) and Jeff cleaned everything up for us, and a very reasonable fee. I was surprised to learn how many major gaps there were in my over all business structure. I would have saved money if I started with him first, and gotten a "custom fit" right from the start. He's very knowledgeable, listens to your concerns, and he also helped me by referring me to other professionals I was missing from my "team" (a good business CPA, insurance agent). He's just a wealth of information for small business owners. His office staff is very polite and helpful. I'd recommend him again and again. John H. Google Review - April 2015
I hired Julia and her husband to help me put a will together and wow I am happy I found them! I'm a divorced mom of two young kids and had no idea where to start when it came to writing a will - not to mention it's a scary thought! I've been putting it off for years, but was fortunate enough to meet Julia through a networking function and hit it off with her immediately. They made the entire process EASY and thought of so many potential pitfalls with my ex-husband that never would have dawned on me! The entire process took about two hours over the course of two meetings and I was delivered a three ring binder with everything I need including a thumb drive to put in my safety deposit box. I cannot say enough about Jeff and Julia, they took the "scary" out of my will and final wishes and I'm blessed to have found them. Lesley D Google Review July 2018
Three years ago I consulted with Jeff about an estate plan and he gave me and my wife great advise. I was very happy with the service that he provided and the fees (flat fee) was VERY reasonable. We had shopped around before deciding on Jeff. He came highly recommended from some good friends of ours. He is an amiable guy who seems to genuinely care about his clients. He spent a good about of time with us and we didn't feel rushed. His staff is very friendly too. John E. Google Review - December 2013
