I really appreciated David’s quick and comprehensive legal advice that he provided. I sent him a question Friday night via e-mail around 5 p.m. and by 7 pm, he had already responded. If you’re looking for a reliable Estate Planning Attorney, I highly recommend Attorney David Bruegel . Where else are you going to find a Lawyer, who cares enough to respond in detail at 7 pm, on a Friday night and for free?
This guy helped guide me through a situation and gave me some very helpful advice. He kept in contact with me and explained things in a way I could understand. He did all this and didn't ask for any money,I'm still in shock actually. At this point things are moving in the right direction thanks to David. He is the lawyer I will always turn too in the future. I'M so happy I found him.
We were looking for someone to provide us guidance as my husband and I found ourselves in a sudden need of estate planning. David was recommended by a business associate that we admire for his work ethic. We are very pleased with the outcome of our estate planning provided by David and his staff.
While we were dealing with life's unexpected challenges, David made himself available to answer our questions and offer suggestions even providing his cell phone for after hour calls. He put together a comprehensive set of wills, powers of attorney, and trust (including all property deeds and transfer affidavit) that included all that we had discussed in just a few emails and conversations. The turn around time was only a couple of weeks and could have been sooner if we requested.
His staff assistant and notary, Judy, was very helpful with edits to the documents, suggestions and organization of final papers for signature. Our final packet of documents included a professional folder divided by the various signed papers and copies.
The bill.....usually this would bring fear to most non-lawyers, but was not the case for us. Due to our situation, we never asked for an estimate, knowing that it would depend upon the time David and his staff worked on the project. We just knew we needed this set of documents prepared in a rather short time frame. We received the bill yesterday and felt it was a very fair price.....a bargain compared with what most law firms would charge! David had told us that the final bill was negotiable but we found no need to debate the charge.
In short, we were very fortunate to have worked with David and Judy for our estate planning. Their years of experience made the process much easier and pleasant than we ever anticipated. We know we can contact David with questions about these documents in the future, and not be charged for the phone calls. How often to you find that kind of service?
Thanks David and Judy for your wonderful service!
I have never meet anyone that could explain your options as well as he does. He takes time, answers all questions makes sure you understand your options. You feel very comfortable working with him which is not always the case. I will be calling him again to set up a will for us. I would recommend him to all my friends and family.
I was recently went through a traumatic experience with my first DUI. Mr Bruegel is a rare combination of knowledge and compassion. He kept me informed what to expect every step of the way. On more than one occasion he went out of his way to inform me and help me understand step by step what was happening. Best yet is that he was there for me from start to finish. I would recommend him highly. There just isn't anything bad I can say about my experience with Mr. Bruegel.
I met David essentially as a fluke, one that I could not be happier happening, when I needed a certificate of trust to sell a house as the result of a divorce. The attorney I had used had left the country but fortunately his files were with the cases David took on when a colleague passed away and he was asked to take those clients on.
He was gracious, very knowledgeable, and willing to step in and help get the papers drawn up for the title company. As a result of his generosity on taking that on and also getting it done in time for closing caused me to have him redo my documents (trust, will, POA for health and for finance).
Having worked with a few other attorneys over the years, I was very pleased with the attention to detail as well as the difficulty of picking up and starting life over after a 35 yr. marriage.
I will definitely recommend David to any of my colleagues or friends who ask for a recommendation. I will also take any legal matters I may have in the future to David as long as he is in practice. As another review I read stated: "David is a uniquely "human" attorney who clearly tries to get to know the clients and tailor the services to the needs expressed." and I could not agree more with that statement.
I met David 2 years ago and did not ever think I would need a lawyer. However in my business I did come across situations that required legal counsel. He was able to accurately assess the situation and advice me on the safest and non-confrontational path I would be able to take in order to save me time and money. I would certainly recommend David with no reservations.
David has been a trusted counsel over the period of the last two years. His wise guidance helped me make the right decisions about my personal circumstances as I changed careers and contemplated moving to another city. Listening to my questions and providing me with answers, he was always helpful, but he also anticipated issues that would ultimately require my attention.
The best thing is that David is very easy to talk to and he LISTENS. On the day we went before the judge I felt ready and relaxed. Events went very well and I felt comfortable with him at my side.
David was very responsive to my needs and gave me sound advice based on law and facts. He has done work for me on tax matters, estate planning, and business contracts. My best interest always seems to be his basic priority.
