I called from another state and had many questions in which he answered all.
He was very clear and took his tine explaining everything.

Well organized and articulate. In short order he worked through the available information and appropriate statues, asked good questions, and offered a sound recommendation. Overall it was very easy and comfortable rapport to discuss how to address possible probate case and actions.

Mr. Duong is extremely professional, caring and offered sound advice in dealing with my father's estate and probate. Although we live in Broward County and Mr. Duong is in Gainesville, it wasn't at all a problem in forwarding him the necessary paperwork required and keeping in contact. He always responded to e-mails and phone calls promptly and took time to address any concerns . We're very grateful for Mr. Duong's compassion and understanding during a stressful time, he is an excellent attorney and I would highly recommend him and his office.

I live in AR - my dad was a FL resident, who passed away in March 2013. AFter researching probate attorneys in FL online, and reading various reviews, I contacted Long and immediately, he was able to answer my questions, assure me that the legalities could be handled without the need for me to travel to FL and what type of FL probate was most appropriate to my situation. Through email and telephone calls, he and his staff were always available and responsive to my questions and concerns. His fee for services was very reasonable, but most importantly, his caring and compassionate attitude and knowledge was equaled by his responsivenees and ability to answer my questions. I would highly recommend that anyone in need of a top-notch probate attorney retain Long to represent them. He raises the bar on attorney-client contact...being in the legal field myself as a paralegal for 18 years, this is not always the case with attorneys and their clients. Highly recommend Long....ten stars!

Long did a great job for our family. It was a complicated probate coming from Canada for my dad's will. His attention to detail and follow up were exceptional. His rates were more than reasonable and for the first time dealing with a lawyer I felt that I wasn't being overcharged for the work being done. I would highly recommend Long for any such dealings.

I cannot say enough about Mr. Duong. His services were beyond exemplary in handling my Dad's Estate. I have never dealt with such a wonderful attorney. All emails and calls were answered promptly and efficiently. His replies and explanations were clear and concise. I would also like to mention that his fees were more than reasonable. If anyone needs a Probate Attorney, he would be the ONLY one I would recommend.

Long Duong (pronounced "Young") did a great job riding herd on the settlement of my mom's estate in FL. He was always available to pateintly explain things and was very knowledgable about the court system and a million other little details. I found him on the web and it was a great find indeed, worth every penny and then some. Top-notch service, a great guy. Who could ask for more? Highest rating!

First off I do want to say Mr. Duong is truly a Professional in this field. He gave me all the facts and through his counsel I was able to understand the gravity of the situation I faced. He did not try to have me hire him or his firm, on the contrary, he advised me to wait and see and if I felt that probate was necessary, I could then call and make those arrangements. I feel that Mr. Duong is a very honest and professional Attorney and has your best interests at heart. He made both my wife and I feel totally at ease at a time we are very on edge and unsure. He spoke to us in a way that we could understand and elaborated on the details we did not quite understand. He made no promises and gave us his honest opinion and advice. As for how I found him, well, they have a great website that explains everything you may need to know about probate. It's in layman's terms so you have no trouble understanding the content and in addition it gives you the opportunity to contact them directly for a free consultation. Exactly what we did and I am very glad that they provide this service. The website itself is nicely done and does reflect how those of us that don't know about probate feel. I will go back and hire Mr. Duong if the situation changes. If this happens I will know that the Attorney I hire is working for my best interest and knows exactly what needs to be done. Trust, professionalism and knowledgeable in His craft made me feel I was in good hands and he's not yet my Attorney. Weprobateflorida.com and Attorney Long H. Duong are professional and honest, if you have question you will get the answers. I highly recommend their service and know I will use them.

Mr. Duong gave me some information that may have been a great asset to claiming my funds. It shows a great amount of integrity for an attorney to inform me that his services may not be needed in my case (which saves me a LOT of money)... I'll be contacting Mt. Duong if I need his services in regards to my mother's estate.

Long Duong was extremely helpful several years ago in setting up my mother-in-laws will and other estate planning issues. When her will had possibly been compromised by an outside source while she was in a vulnerable state, we contacted him to find out what we could do to assure that the will and other medical choices would be intake since her physical health was diminishing. He made contact right away with us and allowed us to set an appointment at our convenience to have her come by, reviewed her will and medical choices with her and had her resign in a 'sealed' setting. She and her children are very much appreciative of the work that he did so quickly to take away the uncertainty that was there and the heartache that could have possibly ensued had her choices not been finalized again with the resigning.
His fees at both signings were very reasonable for the work that was done.

The only reason I did not retain Mr. Duong was because he helped solve my problem in our second phone conversation, which niether call did he charge me for. He is honest, knowlegable, a good listener and a darn good fellow. I strongly recommend before you retain any lawyer that you speak with Mr. Duong first.

I am a retired California attorney. My Dad 100+, a FLA resident died and I needed help w/ his FLA probate issues. Atty Doung (pronounced Young) invited free questions on his web site. He responded quickly. We had a number extended phone consultations. He was totally gracious and generous with his time and expertise. Above all he gave me the practical advise that I needed. He was well experienced and he recognized that under my dad's sitation that no probate was really necessary and told me so, instead of trying merely to create a fee for himself, which speaks so strongly to his integrity. I conside myself very lucky to have found atty Doung. Based upon my own extensive (35+ years) experience, I recognize his superior quality. I am comfortable in recommending him to my family, friends and clients in Florida.

after 22 years in Law Enforcement, I never met a lawyer I liked-until now. He was very professional, forthcoming and reponsive. He was able to guide me through some rough spots without any negative feedback from him. If you need a probate attorney in the state of Florida, I would recommend him without hesitation.

I was inquiring about a Florida Probate issue. Mr Duong was very helpful and went far beyond all the others that I have spoken with today.
It is not easy to give concise, informative information over the phone but he was so informative. His attitude is very assuring and imparts
I was very pleased and would refer him to those who have probate needs.

Mr. Duong was extremely helpful into the closing and reopening of my fathers estate when unclaimed funds were made available by the state of Florida. Due to the length of time since my father's estate was completed (mid 1990's) there was more involved than the normal request of funds. There was the formal closing of the estate, the reopening of estate etc. . Needless to say the check from Mr. Duong was received yesterday by myself and my brother from Unclaimed funds via Mr. Duong. A job well done.

I am a North Carolina Attorney and contacted Mr. Duong with a ancillary probate question. Mr. Duong immediatley called me back and was very knowledgeable and helpful both for myself and my clients. If I ever am in need of a Florida Attorney to handle any probate issues for my clients I will be contacting Mr. Duong.

Mr. Duong was very helpful and answered all of the questions I had inquiring further when he needed clarification or more information. I appreciated his thorough, direct and knowledgeable comments, recommendations and advice during our consultation.

Initially, I was very leary to use an internet law firm. Once I spoke to Mr. Duong, I felt more comfortable and decided to go with him. His fee was considerably lower than a neighborhood attorney and his professional demeanor gave me confidence. His timetable was reasonable and his overall knowledge of the probate process was very specific.
Now that the case has been settled, I am quite pleased with my choice of attorney.

For years I have tried to get a mortage into my name after husbands death. I was so upset I stopped paying. The mortage compary needed permission to talk to me from my dead husband. Then they made a deal with me, I started paying again. A few months later my payments were returned stating not my loan but my home is on the loan, again where is husband? Sent the 9th death paper. Still would not talk to me. I gave up. Went to find a lawyer.com Mr. Duong called me back. He did an amayzing job. He did get me and the morgage compary together and finsh a good deal.

I can't say enough pleasant things about Long. I found him to be very helpful, patient and knowledgeable. He was very cooperative with me and my circumstances. He went above and beyond for me.

I live in CA. and had to probate a pice of property in FL. We had what seemed like a lot of problems with the cort. Long worked with us to get the prober papers filed to get the issue resolved. This process was timing consuming but Long keep us informed.

Our case involved a FL probate issue and we live in CT & MA. Found Attorney Long Duong on an internet search, the website was very informative and includes a spot to email your contact info with a summary of your situation. I was contacted the next day by Long. Very impressed during our phone consulation, he invested a lot of time and made me feel very comfortable, answered any questions I had and gave me an overview of how to handle the case. We were able to handle a lot of communication by email which is very convenient. He was always quick to respond to emails I sent and kept me updated on the progress of the case. My experience with Long was very positive, I would not hesitate to recommend him.
