Have You Been Contacted by Us?

Brandenburger & Davis has been in business since 1932 and over the years we have successfully worked on thousands and thousands of cases.  While every case and each genealogy is different, many of the questions initially asked by our heirs are very similar.


  • "The money is most definitely helpful and will go to extremely good use, there's no doubt about that. Again, thank you for all the hard work you and the staff of Brandenburger and Davis did on my behalf. I never knew I was part of such a complex genealogy."
  • "Can't thank you enough for all you have dedicated working this matter. We truly appreciate all you have done. God Bless."
  • "I wish to thank you very much for all your work with the [] account. This couldn't have come at a better time. Being retired with no pension and relying mostly on Social Security, your work has made my wife and my self's life, a little easier."

  • "Thank you for all your time, effort and results!"
  • "This is just a note of thanks for your professional assistance in the above matter. While the process took longer than I expected, I am pleased with the results.
