Lawrence Dietlein assisted me with a contractual dispute and I hold his business and legal acumen and moral standards in high regard. His demeanor was highly professional while maintaining a friendly camaraderie and his legal review and opinion, and services as a whole, helped me achieve quick and successful resolution to the dispute.

I retained Mr. Dietlein for a will and other end of life documents. I felt his services were very professional. I received all of the document I ask for in a timely manner and found the process to be very easy and the work to be of the highest quality. Will recommend Mr. Dietlein to others and retain him again when the need arises.

Lawrence Dietlein is a perfectionist who clearly understands what is required by law. I was most impressed that even though my brother's death occurred near the holiday season, he was able to get the probate done before the end of the year. In every instance he was informative, efficient and caring.

Mr. Dietlein walked our family through the entire process and produced final estate documents quickly and consistent with our directions. He was able to answer any questions knowledgeably and in terms that we were able to understand. During the signing of these documents, he maintained a relaxed process that eased the stress of the event. I would highly recommend him.

Lawrence provided my documents and will in a timely manner and took the time to thoroughly review the documents and answer all my questions. Lawrence's knowledge and review left me fully informed and comfortable with the decisions I had made.

Mr. Dietlein came highly recommended and now I realize why. He explained the overall process of settling my mother's estate, and walked me through each step, making it as effortless as possible. He was very patient and thorough, and was easily accessible through email; I received responses to my non-urgent questions by the end of the business day, if not sooner.

I hired Mr Dietlein on the advice of a financial planner to probate my husband's will. I was impressed with Mr. Dietlein's professionalism and attention to detail. Working together we were able to get through probate in a very timely manner. Slightly later, I hired him to update my will and estate plan. He discussed with both tact and professionalism several possible problems that could arise during probate of my estate and offered simple solutions.

Lawrence was recommended from our financial advisor. After our first meeting, it was obvious that this choice was better than some of our mutual fund advice. We worked with Lawrence for estate planning to ensure that our family would be protected in the event of unanticipated tragedies, for smart distribution of assets to our children, and peace of mind. Lawrence brought several ideas to the table and we felt that he really wanted to explain scenarios that fit our family and not just what was the most popular or from a template. When asked about installing some nontraditional verbiage for asset distribution contingent on certain goals, Lawrence quickly researched how this could be accomplished and all of the implications to the various parties including guardians and executors. In the end, we found Lawrence to be very professional and appreciated his focus on integrity and values. He is well qualified and knowledgeable and his pleasant personality makes him easy to talk with. We readily recommend Lawrence for legal representation.

Since moving to Texas seven years ago, we needed to find an attorney to have our estate planning done with someone who would listen to our questions and give us answers. Our daughter recommended Larry Dietlein. He is easy to talk to and was able to answer all our questions and more. He made our experience "enjoyable".

Lawrence has assisted me with managing my late father's estate over the course of the past year. His experience, quick response and compassion over a wide range of questions and matters has been nothing short of excellent. When faced with the death of a loved one your grief and anxiety can often overwhelm you. Lawrence carefully guided me through the process and made the paperwork and necessary duty of serving as executrix of the estate as painless as possible. His professsionalism, knowledge and understanding made something very difficult into something very easy.

I have been working with Lawrence for the past 10 years. He has grown with me as I have grown my business. When I first started out he helped me create an LLC. As the company grew, so did my family, and Lawrence was there to help create a will to ensure they will be taken care of. Lawrence has also been a big help as well in protecting my companies intellectual assets with trademarks for different brands. Our company's brands are extremely important for us and Lawrence has successfully defended them when people try to encroach upon them.

Lawrence helped me to form my company. He was very cordial and had very good knowledge in the area of formation of a new company. He helped me to get the certificate of formation with the state with ease. He also reviewed a legal contract and provided me with his legal opinion. Also helped me in legal matters related to my company's website. He is very knowlegeable and very professional in his conduct. Further he is friendly and communicates very well.

Mr. Dietlein recently worked on ILITs for my wife and me. He was very informative and professional, and he completed the work in a timely manner. He even provided binders for our trusts and detailed instructions on how to continue managing the trusts going forward. I felt very comfortable having him handle these and would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Mr. Dietlein is a very caring and understanding lawyer. He constantly strove for the best interests of the heirs in Mom's will. His soft spoken and compassionate demeanor was a help during a trying time for the family, and me as executor of the will. He traveled all the way to the Denton County Courthouse to probate Mom's will. He works well with email for correspondence, sending images of documents for my review, and for my record keeping. This saved me from many trips into Houston, and all that traffic. We had an issue with a nursing home, and he got it resolved much easier than I could have by myself, to the satisfaction of all named in Mom's will.

Lawrence ably prepared a will and estate plan for my husband and myself. He was very diligent in explaining the legal effect of all the documents, ( a will, a trust and so on) and how they all worked together to constitute a comprehensive estate plane.
Lawrence was a high school friend of our son, and we have known, and admired him for over 25 years

I found Lawrence to be an excellent attorney. He had such integrity in all matters regarding my parents' estate and was willing to answer any questions that I might have had. I found him to be professional, fair, responsive, and empathetic. I knew that I could really trust his advice.

We needed legal advise, along with the probate of a will and Mr. Dietlein handle our needs in a professional and timely manner.

When my mother died, Lawrence got me thru probate with no problems at all. He was helpful, provided me the necessary paperwork, and prepped me for the court appearance. Since it was my first time thru the process, his assistance and guidance was greatly appreciated, especially during such an emotional time. He has also answered some informal questions, and pointed me in the right direction on other matters.

Lawrence Dietlein was so supportive after my husband passed away and I needed help with my Estate Will. I felt as if I had know him all of my life and he, with his knowledge gave me what I needed to fulfill my needs in this matter. He always kept me so informed about how the process was to go which kept me from feeling so alone. I give Lawrence an Excellent rating . Thank you for the opportunity to express my endorsement.

Lawrence helped my wife and I with our wills and special needs trust for
my handicapped son. He was extremely helpful and informative.

My sister and I have known Lawrence for many, many years. He did much legal work for my sister and at her passing, I worked with Lawrence to settle her estate. I am so glad that he decided to settle in Houston so that I, too, could use his expertise and knowledge and know that I was dealing with an honest and spiritual person.
Posted by Jack, a Contracts client, Flag
I would reccommend Lawrence to anyone needing legal services. He has always handled my needs quite well and treated my wife and I as family. He has handled our will, A dispute with a timeshare service over a contract, and cleared up a past real estate problem. All in our favor. He always responds quickly by phone or email to any question I had. Anytime we have a legal issue we think of calling no one but him.

Lawrence prepared wills for both of us and really knows his business. What a relief! Then we had a problem with county taxing authority on property not knowingly owned by us (mother had left it to us without our knowledge). He straightened this all out as well. He is really a bull terrier when it comes to his clients' rights!

HE IS VERY HONEST AND TO THE POINT. HIS CHARGES ARE ALWAYS FAIR AND WELL DESERVED. HE HAS GIVEN GOOD ADVICE IN EVERY MATTER HE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN WITH OUR COMPANY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIS SERVICES.
