My wife and I have had wills and trusts developed several times due to relocations to various states, each time with a different lawyer. Working with Tom Bouman was far and away the best of our multiple experiences. He is extremely knowledgable and well-organized, as well as highly communicative. We received clear and understandable explanations at every point. We felt fully confident in his abilities and delivery, and would recommend him without reservation.

Our mother, who only had a simple will, died recently and we hired Tom to handle her probate estate case. This is where we found out the many advantages of having a Revocable Living Trust versus a simple will. Tom clearly explained all our options in a way we could fully understand, enabling us to make the best decision for us. We were extremely impressed with his knowledge in estate planning. Through his website, we were able to communicate with him at any time. We were able to schedule appointments with him at our convenience. His fixed fee schedule removed any worries we had on how much the final cost would be. We are extremely satisfied with the services Tom provided to us, and we highly recommend him for any estate planning needs.

We moved to AZ from another state and Tom assisted with updating our estate plan. He is extremely knowledgeable and is able to explain options clearly allowing us to make informed decisions based on our wishes as well as Arizona law. He delivered documents promptly for our review and was very efficient during the document review meeting while also answering any questions we had. Tom's use of technology to make appointments, provide articles of interest and communicate with us was very appreciated.

I had some lagging legal worries that were keeping me up at night but Mr. Bouman sorted them out very quickly and got them all completed. He also gave excellent advice on separate issues and I was able to take care of those myself. His fees were very reasonable and uncomplicated. I would highly recommend Mr. Bouman and feel secure knowing that he will be available to help me in the future.

This is my second attempt to deliver my review. Tom, thanks for helping us in getting our existing revocable trust in conformance with Arizona law. It is a complex undertaking, but you made it- not easy, but certainly a lot smoother getting the job done. Sonia and I really enjoyed meeting you, and working with you. We'll be in touch to keep the trust current.
Best to you and yours.

I used Thomas Bouman for several different legal issues. All were accomplished in a timely fashion and included estate problems upon the death of a spouse, restatement of a family trust and the formation of a new trust and a gun trust. Thomas spent the time to make sure I understood the trust documents and provided additional written clarification of details as well as a copy on disc that could be reproduced.
At meetings in his office I never felt rushed and that Thomas anticipated the amount of time that would be required to fully explain the documents so that I would never leave not understanding the details.
I plan to consult Thomas on a regular basis in then future to review the status of my trusts relative to the ever changing laws and regulations that effect my estate.

While researching numerous Estate Planning lawyers Tom Bouman stood out. His website tomboumanlaw.com is filled with information to assist his clients. His fixed fee schedule is fair and thoroughly presented thereby taking the worry out of hourly or hidden fees. From the first meeting Tom's professionalism and knowledge was apparent. With his guidance the plans for our Estates were met by a will for my husband and a living trust for myself. Tom is a caring, patient lawyer and took time to answer all our questions. We now feel confident that we have everything in order and taken care of for our Estates. I highly and heartily recommend Thomas Bouman.

I started out unsure what I needed, but Tom did an excellent job of interrogating my situation in detail and explaining the options very clearly. Once we had a plan, he executed it quickly and efficiently. I've worked with enough other lawyers to be pleasantly surprised by how painless this was.

Tom Bouman was recommended by our financial advisor. He did not disappoint. He was knowledgable on every aspect of law that seem to consistently change. Tom was reliable, easy to talk to on all information that we needed, he provided advice, and he is a down-to-earth person. I recently recommended him to about thirty friends in a local club.
