Temkin Law offers a thorough service. Wendi's calm and organized manner made it easier for us to follow the process through to the end. She answered my questions
clearly, until I totally understood the answer.
Wendi was very patient and took the time to understand our circumstances and
Often questions came up for me after our meetings. She was very timely with her responses to my questions. Wendi asked great questions, that got me thinking in different ways. For example, I used to think "that tree I'd like to buy to plant in the yard is kind of expensive." Now I think about it and say, "Do I want to plant the
tree and enjoy watching it grow or do I leave $200 more to one of the many
charities we have set up in our estate planning?"
Wendi gave us the option of having Temkin Law set up the changes that were
necessary to fund the trust we created, or we could do it ourselves with her
guidance. We chose to have her make most of the changes for us. She has
followed up on several occasions to see that all the transactions had been
successfully done. She also sent a letter advising what happens next and to
remind us how to add new assets to our trust.
Having gone through this process I feel confident that I am not leaving my
family with a mess to sort out. I have the comfort in knowing that my
future is planned to the best of our knowledge at this time in our lives and
that we will review our estate plan with Wendi every three years to
make any necessary changes.
We have recommended Wendi's services to many of our friends and family.
Wendi was instrumental in bringing our family peace of mind. She is truly a subject matter expert in estate planning. Wendi listened to our background and concerns and she focused our discussions and plan to reflect our family and its needs. The process is difficult, contemplating the inevitability of mortality is heartbreaking and gut-wrenching. Wendi approaches it with calm and intelligence. She is compassionate yet insightful. We cannot thank her enough for the gift of organization and planning that will undoubtedly help our family deal with anything life throws at us.
Wendi helped make a complicated, important process much easier. She explains things very well and is very knowledgeable in her field. We would highly recommend her services for a comprehensive estate plan.
Wendi was a wealth of information...and, if there was something she did not know, did not hesitate to research the topic and get back to us with the information. I also appreciated her sensitivity to our particular situation. Great experience!
We spent minutes on the phone clarifying the concerns and considerations surrounding a complicated situation that other attorneys could not organize without an extended session. Right away she got to the heart of the issues with a straight forward explanation in a respectful manner. Interaction with law topics can leave a reasonable person feeling apprehensive, uncertain and powerless about how to proceed when unfamiliar with laws and terminology. Ms. Temkin surpassed our expectation with her subject knowledge and listening skill. She provided us with concrete, useful information along with a how to move forward education without feeling intimidated or that the material was over our head to understand without the benefit of a law degree. She is an excellent communicator, highly capable attorney, She will leave you feeling listened to and understood.
Wendi was beyond helpful and supportive as we set up our trust and went over all the details needed to make sure our daughter would be taken care of in the event of anything. We were so glad to have her expertise, and kindness in what can be an overwhelming and emotional process!
I found Wendi Temkin to be extremely professional. She handled my financial affairs in a quick and efficient manner. I highly recommend her for estate planning.
Wendi was clear and concise. She explains all the ins and outs of estate planning and guardianship. It was a huge help!
