    Integrity and Intelligence

    I have trusted Lou's guidance and expertise for nearly 15 years. He offers options in a clear and understandable manner, is patient, honest and thoughtful in his consideration and interaction. When making decisions regarding wills, health care surrogate, and the like, my experience with Lou has been very positive--I was able to make informed decisions with a complete feeling of trust and safety.

    Always thoughtful advice

    I have asked Mr. Putney about a number of legal issues. He always listens carefully and gives thoughtful advice. If he is not able to help, he will give me ideas of people I can talk to with more expertise on a specific topic. Mr. Putney drew up the wills for my husband and I after we were married and spent a lot of time going over various options we could use in our wills. I would highly recommend him.

    A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE

    I hired attorney Putney to represent me as a beneficiary and as a PR in a complicated international probate. Despite my warnings and despite my wishes he retained the services of a third party in another country without having a written contract with that person, to conclude the probate there and to transfer a significant amount of funds stateside. As I warned, that person withheld over $ 600,000.00 dollars in legal fees for the work, that other attorneys there quoted $ 5,000.00.
    Once I confirmed the loss to him, he withdrew from the case, thus leaving the estate and my self as a creditor in chaos.
    Attorney Putney was cantancaourus, rude, untruthfull and unsympathetic throughout my dealings with him.

    Louis David Putney’s response: “As Anca’s former attorney I am bound by attorney–client privilege, which I honor. Therefore, I am unable to respond to this former client’s accusations without violating client confidentiality. However, I take issue with Anca’s allegations and maintain that my actions were both legal and ethical, and that I had good cause for withdrawing from any further representation of this client. I always strive to obtain the best possible results for my clients, within the legal and ethical constrains of our legal system.”

    Highly Recommended

    My spouse and I recently moved to the area with our young daughter. We had not yet prepared any wills or estate planning and needed to find an attorney to help us. After doing our research, we called Mr. Putney's office and scheduled a consultation the following week. The staff was very responsive and friendly. During our consultation, we found Mr. Putney to be very knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy. We arranged to have Mr. Putney prepare our estate plan. We are very happy with the service we received and would highly recommend Mr. Putney to our family and friends.

    Client Review

    Mr. Putney is an excellent attorney. He has proved himself to me on each of several separate occasions during the last 20+ years to be extremely intelligent, forceful, and highly effective. His personality differs from the stereotypical attorney: he maintains a sensitivity, understanding and compassion for his client's cause that conveys at once a familial warmth and a current sense (later proved) that his advice is truly sound. Mr. Putney's staff is also friendly, efficient and most helpful. -- Frederick Slutsky
