"Our experience with Ken Vanway has been most pleasing and has given us a comfort level that our estate plan is in very good hands. Ken is a very outstanding communicator and very knowledgeable. He is very thorough in explaining in great detail making sure that everything is understood. He will quote you a fee for all his proposed costs and works before he begins his work. Time is not a problem. He wants to make sure of what you want and that you completely understand all your documents.

Owner - Harbinson Auto Sales
"Ken Vanway and my family go back to the late 1980's when he did a wonderful job of setting up partnership agreements for my businesses. His plan covered all problems that we could foresee. When my son died of cancer in 1996, his plan carried us through any problems that could have arisen. He also handled Jewel's and my estate in a very professional manner and I feel comfortable knowing that our children and grandchildren will not have any problems carrying out our wishes based upon his excellent estate planning program for us. He has been a special friend for the Blackwoods."

"Susan and I have, with Ken Vanway's guidance and expertise, developed an estate plan and the appropriate vehicles that is thorough enough to satisfy our accountants, lawyers and financial advisors. Yet, the plan is simple enough to be understood by our children. I think of it as a plan with 'sophisticated simplicity' that meets our long-term objectives."
Ralph E. Janes, III
Owners - Janes Gravel Co. (3rd generation Austin Business)
"I have known and admired Ken Vanway since my wife and I moved to Lakeway in 1987. When Ann and I decided to setup a living trust, another attorney referred us to Ken as the attorney best qualified in estate planning. Ken's work was all done professionally and at what we considered to be a reasonable fee. Ken has since updated our trust because of changes in the federal law and this was done at no charge. We have been very pleased with the work Ken has done for us and we would not hesitate to recommend him."
Former Mayor of Lakeway
"Ken Vanway brings expertise mixed with interest in my particular needs. He offers suggestions and solutions without prejudice and is honest as the day is long."
