    • I recommend Justin Watling.
    • I hired Justin 1-3 years ago.
    • Justin handled my Wills / Living Wills matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    An Ohio relative of mine passed on and some questions came up about the estate. Because I live outside Ohio, I needed to find somebody with working knowledge of the state laws regarding wills and probate. I sat down at my computer to search for a lawyer and eventually stumbled across Avvo. I entered my criteria (large metropolitan area, at least two decades experience, etc.) and Avvo offered up a handful of names, including Justin Watling's. The list was arranged alphabetically. The first person I called didn't call me back (and still hasn't called me back). The second person was Mr. Watling. He couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. He listened to my concerns and asked questions. At his request, I sent him my documentation and he spent some time examining it before advising me. He spotted a flaw in one document and spoke to me at length about how to deal with it. His advise was reasonable and concise. I recommend him very highly.

    • I recommend Justin Watling.
    • I hired Justin more than 3 years ago.
    • Justin handled my Estate Planning matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I would highly recommend Justin to anyone who is doing estate planning. We were extremely pleased with the professional and thorough services that Justin provided. We had started our estate planning with another firm, and were not very happy with the process. A friend who had a similar experience recommended us to Justin, and every aspect of the process went well. We have also introduced Justin to other friends and they have had positive results.

    Justin Watling acted as my lawyer when I had problems with a negligent contractor. He was efficient, very professional, and always kept me informed during my case. I highly recommend him and will be using him again very shortly.

    Over the holidays, my family needed to set up a power of attorney quickly while everyone was in town. We contacted Justin Watling because of the work he does pro bono for the Westlake Senior Center. In spite of a hectic holiday schedule and bad weather, Justin went out of his way to help us, even paying two "house calls" to mom's assisted living complex. While preparing the power of attorney papers, he also reviewed mom's trust documents, prepared 10 years ago by another attorney. He offered great advice and updated the documents for us at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Our family was very satisfied with the work Justin did and we highly recommend him.

    Mr.Watling was above all else very professional and his presentation and working knowledge were presented in a very understandable and compassionate way. I would without hesitation recommend his services in Living Trust,estate planning or probate legal issues.
