We thoroughly enjoyed our meetings with Tom. The subject matter could have been morose (Wills, Medical POA etc), but Tom was professional and sensitive in sharing meaning information. Additionally, Tom provided excellent guidance on how to structure our retirement and estate plans.
Even after our meetings, Tom continues to assist in the transfer of Deeds and answering miscellaneous questions.
We would highly recommend Tom and his services.
Tom is very patient with his clients; even the ones who procrastinate on following up with him on details and meetings. He really knows Estate law and is a stickler on detail. He is also excellent in explaining the Estate Plan in non "legal-eese" to his clients. I give Tom an "A." It would have been an "A+" but I don't want him to get a big head.
I sought legal advice on how to plan for my ultimate demise with very little knowledge about the possibilities. My initial thought was a will, but Tom first evaluated my situation, my assets and my wishes. He then explained the benefits and disadvantages of various plans, and ultimately drafted a document that fully meets my needs.
He is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him.
Tom is very professional and organized, therefor things move quickly. Thanks to his website you know exactly what to expect money - and otherwise.
Very glad we found him and will be glad to recommend him.
Tom fully explained and walked us through the process and ensured it was done to our satisfaction so we trust the results and his recommendations. His style suited us perfectly.
Tom was a referral from our financial planner at Merrill Lynch, and we are completely satisfied by his guidance and preparation of our estate documents. He was very easy to work with, and provided all the necessary backdrop for decisions we needed to make for ourselves. He has also responded very quickly to followup requests for clarification.
Like many people, my husband and I had thought about doing our wills and advanced directives but never followed through. My brother and his wife had been raving about how good the attorney was who did their family trust. They said he was Mr. Tom Bouman. We were so impressed by their recommendation, that we took the step we needed. We made an appointment. I went to Mr. Bouman's web site and was so-o-o-o impressed. He shared so much helpful information. Then we went to meet with him. We learned so much from him in that meeting as well. We are so glad we listened to my brother's enthusiastic recommendation. We have completed our trust and are at peace knowing our family will carry out our wishes. We're grateful my brother spoke so highly of Mr. Bouman. We are now doing the same thing. Give yourself peace of mind and have Mr. Thomas Bouman represent your family estate legal matters.
Thomas was thorough and patient explaining all aspect regarding our will and trust, from planning to how our trust would be executed for our heirs. He has given us peace of mind that our affairs are now in order.
Tom provided excellent explanations to the intricate details of estate planning. He also presented options to handle potential future problems that we had not considered. We are very happy we hired him.
Prompt and courteous responses to phone calls and emails before and after office encounters. Educated and guided us in constructing our estate plan, efficiently and completely answered all our questions, and provided excellent tech-friendly documentation for our records. Made the whole process clear and accessible for us. We'll confidently rely on Tom to help us review and update our plans as needed going forward.
