My Living Trust was created in 1997. As the time went by and so many items and people and my desires listed in the trust had changed. I felt very uncomfortable and hoped that nothing would happen to me before the trust was re-stated. Looking for a good lawyer I asked around and even interviewed a couple. Neither felt like the 'right' lawyer. Then, I was recommended to Lisa. I immediately felt confident about her and used her. I gave her excellent results for each of the review ratings on Avvo. She deserved each. She was more like a friend who had a genuine interest in setting up the trust the way that it should be and for what I wanted to accomplish.
We hired Lisa to develop our estate plan. We didn't have any pre-existing documents. Everything (wills, powers of attorney, living wills, etc) was developed from scratch, with Lisa's guidance. Lisa was very thorough in ensuring all aspects of estate planning were covered. She was very helpful in making us aware of our options with respect to how we set up the various documents. She helped us think through some challenging and sometimes sensitive issues...and she provided good solutions for addressing those issues. She was also very helpful in educating us on various estate planning topics. Lisa has a very personable style that makes her easy to work with. She would be a particularly good choice for someone who is new to estate planning and is looking for helpful guidance.
Lisa really helped us make sense out of a complicated his, hers and theirs type of situation. She helped us understand our estate planning options, then let us decide what path would be right for us. The trust she prepared for us is robust, and has provisions for nearly everything that might happen to us over the next several years. In the end, she took the time to explain all the parts of the trust documents, including identifying the part that might need to be updated over time as our situation changes.
Lisa is very professional and at the same time personable. My experience was with a Charitable Remainder Trust client. I am one of the other advisors for the client. Lisa was very inclusive and helpful to the other members of the team: financial planner and administrator.
Lisa made a complex process easy for the client to understand. The clients seemed very pleased with the process and the results of Lisa's work.
Great personality and office staff. Very efficient. Prices are very reasonable. Helped my son and I with our Gun Trust. Plan to have her do my Revocable Living Trust in the near future.

Lisa enjoys what she does and is thorough to a fault, creating a complete trust document albeit somewhat complex. Her emphasis on family and managing family relationships through the estate process and longer term is outstanding. Lisa is easy to work with and inclusive of all those who may need to involved, such as your financial advisor. We enjoyed working with her.
Doing a state planing it was something that we have been postponing for a while because our busy schedule. But Lisa made sure to accomated challenging schedules, keep us informed on the next steps and made all the process enyoable. She is a fantastic communicator and very knowable. Our state planing required different solutions because we are not citizens but our kids are. She made changes to incorporate. We really trust her.
