My stepfather passed away recently and my mother was having a hard time understanding what she needed to do. Her name is on the deed of her house but not on the mortgage. There were some other situations that went along with it that seemed to complicate things. I live in Arizona and was searching the internet looking for help for her situation in Florida.
I was drawn in by the simple layout. I noticed that the questions we needed answered were mentioned on the website. On the website it states that you receive a free 20 minute consultation with a lawyer, no strings attached. There was an 800 number but I opted to fill out the online form instead, giving a description of my mothers situation. Within a few hours Mr. Duong had emailed me. He told me he would like to review her official public records online with me over the phone so he could give me all the potential options and a quote if I desired him to handle it. I emailed him my phone number and we were speaking within about 30 minutes. Mr. Duong was very meticulous, he advised me of all my mother's options. In his opinion my mother's case did not have to go to probate. My free 20 minute consultation lasted about 32 minutes. He couldn't have been any nicer. I would advise anyone that has any questions about probate in Florida to give him a ca.l. He was a kind and honest man and was very easy to talk to.

I received a response in less than a day. Long, as he prefers to be called, is very professional, easily understood, a good listener, compassionate, and knowledgeable. He discovered early on that I had been misinformed and needed to file in another state.Although my son passed in FL he lived in GA.
Although Long was unable to help me with the issue at hand he went a step farther and gave me referrals to attorneys in the state I needed.
I would highly recommend Long for any probate proceedings in FL. He is there to help!

Mr. Duong is the best probate attorney I know. He was very knowledgeable and excited to help me. He was willing to go above and beyond to help me through. He was a dramatic help for me to help with my case and I would recommend him anyday to anyone. He will work his hardest for you and it won't take long for him to keep you updated on what's going on with your case. Thank you Attorney Duong you were truly a blessing to me.

We are thrilled with the work that Long and his firm provided for us in handling our Mother's estate in FL (I live in VA and my brother lives in NJ). Very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and helpul throughout the process. He handled all aspects of the probate (at a very reasonable rate), and took care of all of the details on our behalf. We highly recommend him!

I had specific questions to a complex potential probate case - residing outside of the state of FL added yet another dimension of complexity. Mr Duong took the time and assisted me with my questions, offering me excellent advice on what and how I can research independently before making significant considerations moving forward. He was compassionate and understanding of my situation and more than helpful in assisting me in formulating answers to complex questions in a way I can understand , take notes on and be able to return to my notes and still understand. He indicated he would not be able to assist me in his case secondary to location , however , did not hesitate to guide me in research.

Long Duong is one of the most professional lawyers that I have ever worked with. He was efficient , caring and accurate. His fees were exactly what he quoted from the start. I could not have chosen a better lawyer to settle my mother's estate. I recommend him highly.

I first hired Long in late 2013 to handle a probate case relating to the death of a family member. At first it was difficult for me to process all the details and rules given that I live in another country and am not familiar with US laws. However, Long was very understanding and helpful in explaining his services/fees as well as documentations required and the entire court process. Since I live outside of the US, we often communicated via email and Long was very responsive and even after a few months lag he still remembered the details of the case and was able to get back to me quickly. It has been a pleasure working with Long and his team during what was a very very difficult time for my family and I. I would not hesitate to recommend Long to any of my friends or family!

After my brother’s death, I reached out to Long H. Duong for advice in regard to settling his estate. Although I am subject matter expert and speaker on issues related to stress management and coping with traumatic loss, I was clearly at a loss when it came to this matter. I felt stressed by not knowing my legal rights, who to call, papers to file, simply, what to do next. Long H. Duong spent time with me on the phone reviewing my options. His professionalism and understanding of what I was going through helped to alleviate any stress I was feeling. Coping with a loss and reaching out to an attorney for legal assistance can be overwhelming. For that reason, it is important to feel safe and to trust that you are making the right decisions. Being that grief reactions can often get in the way of settling an estate, it is important to seek out an attorney that is compassionate, as well as knowledgeable. Anyone who knows me, has read my books or has heard me speak, knows that I feel strongly about being self-compassionate. If you have experienced a loss in your life, take care of yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be self-compassionate by contacting Long H. Duong for your probate and estate planning needs. - Barbara R.

Mr. Duong combines intelligence with knowledge of the law, wisdom, trustworthiness and warmth. I'm 82 years old and have never had a lawyer I esteemed more highly. He has been handling my new trust account (which is very complicated) for over a year with extraordinary skill and has made every issue clear to me. In addition to dealing with the technicalities of trust management, he has advised me of many options I hadn't considered and helped me make wise decisions about the disposition of my assets. I would trust him with my life---which, in a way, I guess I'm doing.
