I was the successor trustee for my deceased aunt's trust. Midway through the process the original attorney handling the trust left the law firm and Colleen Henes was assigned to us. Although we never met in person, we were able to conduct our business via email until completion. Colleen was always up on everything and responded to my emails in a timely manner, even on weekends. I felt I was always kept up to date. It was a pleasant experience working with Colleen.

Colleen has helped me with all my estate planning needs. She's very responsive and thorough in her professionalism toward her clients. I would no doubt use her again as things change or need updating in my life. I also feel completely comfortable telling friends and family that Colleen is the lawyer to choose.

Colleen is an extremely high quality attorney who was very communicative, professional, and capable at handling my case. I have had occasion to interact with many different attorneys and Colleen stands out among them. I would not hesitate to hire her as my attorney again!

I used Smarter Will to prepare my estate plan online. It was all fairly straightforward and I got my documents quickly. I was a bit nervous to see what I would get from them, but I was pleasantly surprised to see my documents neatly laid out in a folder with little tabs telling me where to sign. It also came with instructions on how to sign and witness all the documents, which really helped. The best part was that Colleen reviewed all my answers and, within 48 hours, she sent me an email asking me to confirm that what I inputted online was exactly what I wanted to do (like who I wanted as health care agents and where I wanted all my money to go). Now I have everything in order and have peace of mind knowing that everything is taken care of (and for a good price!). Great work!

Colleen Ventura was my savior. As anyone who ever had to get through a divorce knows, it never is easy, simple, nor is it supposed to be. I used someone else's services for a year before Colleen took over, it was looking BAD... As soon as my new attorney started working, she was able to grind through the piles of documents, create documents that showed my side of the story, she got through to a very difficult judge, and it was all over within months. The settlement being fair...all I was asking for. I also used her services to create a living will. I am a mother of two children with special needs, it had to be PERFECT, to cover any possible scenario--and IT IS! Colleen listens, takes notes, works with precision, and asks questions every step of the way:) The most friendly, effective, patient (nothing makes her loose her cool), and knowledgeable attorney one could ask for. Fast forward a year...and she is taking care of my taxes...with her precision, endless expertise, and usual friendliness...she takes care of any problem in no time with the same friendly smile. Nothing could go wrong if you have her in your corner:)

Colleen is an outstanding attorney. I have never hesitated to contact her on any issue. She is extremely easy to work with; she explains the situation and the alternatives well; she is a trusted advisor.
