We had been looking for a lawyer to advise us on Estate Planning and set up a trust for our estate. We had seen James Voeller's ads in publications and after reviewing testimonials on the internet we decided he was the lawyer we needed. We did not go wrong. He has addressed all our concerns and answered any questions we have by email, phone or in person. Mr. Voeller and his staff are professional and knowledgably. We highly recommend The Voeller Law Firm for all your Estate Planning needs.

My husband and I needed to get our estate planning in order after years of putting it off. Mr. Voeller walked us through the process from beginning to end, providing candid and thoughtful insight along the way. We enjoyed our time with him - he was never in a rush or too busy to answer our questions. We now feel secure and well organized if the worse were to happen while our children are young. Worth every penny!

We had a family member who moved to Texas and needed a revised estate plan. Our financial advisor recommended Jim and he did a superb job explaining the differences in Texas law and what the various estate planning options were for our family member. Jim's explanations utilized real life situations he has experienced in his practice regarding how different estate planning choices can create different outcomes, and what the implications are to the person's estate and their personal and financial affairs. Jim's office staff are kind, professional and discreet. My relative was very pleased with the new estate plan and the entire family feels very confident that the new plan is thorough, comprehensive and accomplishes our estate planning goals.

We were referred to Jim Voeller by our financial adviser. Within the first 15 minutes of our conversation he knew exactly what we needed to protect our assets and any future stress on our children. Jim Voeller spent at least 2 hours discussing the benefits of putting all our community property into a Family Trust. He answered all of our questions without making us feel rushed or that he needed to move onto his next client. Once the documents were completed, he spent at least another 2 hours discussing the contents. He was extremely patient with the many questions we needed answered. The documents were presented to us in a very well organized and professionally designed binder. Thank you Jim.

Jim helped us set up a Living Trust and transfer assets into it in order to bypass probate.
He is always available to answer questions on what to do in order to avoid loose ends.

We were looking for a lawyer to advise us for estate planning, hoping to set up a trust with a will for protection of our assets. We also wanted to have a local lawyer and had seen Jim's office time after time. After reviewing testimonials on line, we decided to have a consultation with Jim. He was very patient and gave us great advice on what we needed to do in the first consultation. Approximately two weeks later we met with Jim, who explained our Revocable Living Trust and the associated documents. He also made sure we had the various powers of attorney we needed as well as the pour-over will. We had no experience prior to this, so it was a nice surprise to have this level of support from an attorney to explain what each document meant. Jim also was supportive in allowing that we can call at any time with questions, would be willing to take calls from our investment managers, etc. at no additional fees.

We were new to Texas and were not familiar with Texas Estate Planning laws. Jim was recommended to us by two previous clients who recommended him very highly to us. We met with Jim for 2 hours initially and he told us about all of the information that he would need to develop a Living Trust for us. We were very impressed with his extensive knowledge of estate planning and probate law. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns. Jim is very methodical and puts together a very informative binder for each client which includes all of the data that he develops for his clients. We were also impressed with Jim's willingness to meet with you at a later date to answer any questions that may have come up while implementing your plan. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.

Jim was recommended to us by our Financial Wealth Advisor. We were not disappointed! Jim reviewed the various options available to us to protect our assets in the way that meets our need. We consulted with him for 1-2 hours initially and although our plans were to go back home and discuss whether we wanted to hire Jim, we hired him on the spot. His knowledge of estate planning was impressive, to say the least. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns. He was able to provide a solution for every situation which we felt were important. We scheduled a followup meeting with him to go over the estate planning binder which contains EVERYTHING we could imagine. He has offered to explain our plan with our children when they are in town. We feel his fees are reasonable based on the value we received. He is personable and very easy to talk to as well. Would highly recommend Jim for estate planning.

Jim made a scary process painless. We especially appreciated the way he explained everything in a way we could understand. He gathered the information, put it all together, even helped us with forms we'd need later - all the while keeping us informed and comfortable.

I initially sought out Mr Voeller for estate planning purposes as a result of him being well rated on Avvo. I was not disappointed. He was friendly and well informed. He took the time to explain everything regarding an estate plan and seemed to give advice that benefited me and my family rather than his firm. Because I liked Mr. Voeller so much, I also used him to create a LLC and a DBA. My second use of Mr. Voeller was also a pleasure. He was again well informed and took the time to explain everything to me. I have sent him several follow up questions via email and he has always taken the time to respond and has always done so within 24 hours.
