My wife and I were very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism that Ms. Perry provided in our Estate Planning. It is an area that we both were not familiar with prior to Ms. Perry guidance. Highly recommend her services.

We weren't too sure about doing an estate plan but we finally got it done. She made the process so simple! I didn't feel that there was a question she did not answer quickly. She understood our concerns and made sure we addressed it all in our estate plan.

My husband and i were in need of a lawyer who dealt with trusts and wills. My financial advisor recommended Ms, Perry to help us with our trusts. Ms. Perry made us comfortable from the start and explained what needed to be done and why it was advantageous for us to proceed with this project.
We do not have a family lawyer and I felt that she was a perfect fit for our current needs. I now know that when we have need of advice from a lawyer, she will be the one we turn to with our concerns, I would recommend her highly for her knowledge and ability to make us feel at ease.

I lost my husband in Dec. 2012 and needed to have a new Will or Trust drawn up for myself. Geneva Perry was recommended to me by a financial advisor as well as a family member. My over all experience during this preparation of a Trust was very pleasant.

My family and I would like to thank Geneva for her outstanding effort in helping us find our way through a legal system were not familiar with as we are not from the US. Geneva was a powerful advocate for my Aunt and if I had to go through the process again I wouldn't have done anything differently.

My partner and I used the services of Geneva Perry to prepare an estate plan / living trust / wills etc. We were very pleased with her knowledge of the subject, services provided, and the instructions given to us with the documents (changing accounts and beneficiaries, where necessary) were thorough and specific. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a competent and thorough attorney.

My partner and I were expecting our first child in September of 2011 and we needed some legal documents drawn up. We were referred to Geneva by a friend and after the first email we were very impressed with her professionalism, promptness and friendly demeanor. Geneva and her staff drew up all the documents we needed in a timely manner and treated us with the utmost respect. Just after our son was born we had to return to her office to amend a couple documents, at no charge, and Genevea skillfully held the baby while taking care of our legal matters. She is a pro!

My wife and I visited Ms. Perry for estate planning advise. She was proffesional, informative and very understandable. Our visit resulted in her handling of our trust. She was very patient in considering all of our concerns and her recommendations were very well thought out. We appreciate her help and are happy with all of the services she provided.

Geneva made the extra effort to make sure we understood the trust she created for us to include all the steps that have to take place after the document is created. We took a long while to review the draft she sent and she contacted to make sure we understood and to see if we had questions. She asked many questions to make sure the document included our requests. We would recommend gladly and already have on numerous occasions.

After watching my daughter struggle for over a year as the executrix of my late auntâ€™s will, I knew I needed some form of protection for my children. My research suggested a trust may be the correct answer for me. I was referred to the firm for which Geneva N. Perry worked, and I secured an appointment at the firm. I thought I knew what I wanted, but the information intake process indicated that I really didnâ€™t have a clue and I needed legal guidance. Attorney Perry explained the trust concept in laymanâ€™s terms, guided me through the process and made appropriate suggestions for improvement, most of which I accepted. She was willing to meet with my trustees, and they too agreed with the approach. I am totally satisfied with Attorney Perry's professionalism and the resulting Revocable Trust. She further helped me get my trust added as beneficiary to my accounts and annuities. I would highly recommend her as an estate attorney.

The one aspect I love MOST about Ms. Perry, apart from her professionalism and responsiveness, is her compassionate and caring demeanor. Her knowledge is without question, which is extremely reassuring, and yet her manner is so calm and understated, you feel completely at ease and confident in her ability to meet your needs. I recommend her unequivocally.

Explained things well and I didn't feel rushed like with some lawyers. Had a good sense of humor and made us feel relaxed. I really like the agency as they have handled my real estate deeds and loans also. The teamwork is impressive and all of the team from receptionist to other lawyers were friendly and supported each other. They know that they won't become rich off of me but we felt like some of the richest folks around with the quality of service.

I asked a difficult question on your website and Ms. Perry gave the most thoughtful and detailed answer of all the attorneys. I will be following up with her and from the other reviews, I feel very confident in her capabilities and knowledge as well as her attention to detail.

Recently my sister lost her only child and her husband within a week of each other. A friend recommended Geneva's firm to help us work through the legal affairs. Ms. Perry was appointed to help us, she did a great job! She was professional, friendly, competent, on time, very dependable and also accessible. I would recommend her to anyone in need of legal help. She was wonderful!

Ms. Perry gathered the information and explained the type of documents I would need for estate planning. She took the time to explain how each document works.

When our father passed away, I wanted to petition the court for appointment of guardianship of my elderly brother who has Down Syndrome. Ms. Perry demonstrated an impressive degree of competence in handling my case. In spite of my unfamiliarity of the procedures in obtaining guardianship, I felt extremely confident in her guidance and counseling of the matter. Ms. Perry was incredibly diligent with returning calls and communicating with me about the case. She is a very caring, warm, and compassionate lawyer and I highly recommend her.

I was impressed mostly by Ms. Geneva Nicole Perry work ethics and her people skill with me. She helped me out planning my estate (will trust). She was very helpful in explaining to me the benefits of this type of will’s verses a normal will. I thought with her promptness and attention to detail that would be enough to impress me, but it wasn’t.
I had my best friend come down with cancer. My friend handled all the bills and was the only one on all of the bank accounts. The banks would not acknowledge his wife. He was bed stricken and could not leave the hospital due to his illness to sign any paper work at the bank. Ms. Perry made a point to get to the hospital in the morning to prepare the paper work and then in the evening to execute the power of attorney for his wife. She also went the extra step and looked over his and his wife’s will’s. She made it so that the banks acknowledge her and that she could move money in order to pay bills and help out with the financial affairs of the household. This was not the only client Ms. Perry had that day but you would have never known it. My friend passed away a few days later. Ms. Perry’s actions in treating the situation as if it was family and not so much like a business were felt by all. She never made anyone feel like it was about making money. I understand that she does get paid and that there is overhead. The law firm of JBWK again keeps showing me that they only hire the best. I would recommend Ms. Perry to everyone I come in contact with.

My mother and I had a very pleasant experience with Ms. Perry, who carefully and patiently explained the nuances of the trust we wished to establish. Her manner was calm, unhurried, and compassionate, which was particularly comforting to my elderly mother. I appreciated her professional and caring demeanor, and would readily recommend her to anyone seeking trust and estate planning advice.
