I have known Jane since 2010. She is an outstanding and knowledgeable estate planning, trust and probate lawyer. She is a "go to" colleague when a client with a complex estate requires estate planning or representation in a probate matter. As a tax lawyer, I can attest Jane possesses an understanding of estate and death taxes that is indispensable for her estate planning clients. Jane's expertise as an estate planning lawyer, coupled with her knowledge of estate and death taxes makes in invaluable when counseling same-sex couples. Her work product is outstanding and her clients are in good hands. It is a privilege to be able to refer my clients to Jane for their estate planning and probate needs. She is personal, friendly and a pleasure to work with.
Ms. Hall was wonderfully helpful with regard to my family estate planning. First, I did price comparison with other attorneys before selecting her to do this work, and her prices were within the range of other attorneys. Second, she accomplished the work promptly and in a professional manner. Third, she took a significant amount of time to explain issues to me. Fourth, her staff was cordial and made me feel welcome. I highly recommend Ms. Hall.
I was in need of an attorney to create a will and set up a family trust. A friend recommended the firm of Jane Hall and I was impressed with two things right off the bat: 1) I actually met with Jane Hall for every step in the process. I was not just greeted at the door and passed off to an associate. 2) Ms. Hall offered more than just her legal services, she actually listened to what my wife and I had to say and offered sage advice. The fees were reasonable for the work performed and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal assistance from a firm where you are made to feel like an important client no matter the scope of the engagement.
Jane is an excellent estate planning attorney. I have referred several clients to her, and she has proven herself with each one. Not only will she visit clients at their home, or where ever they are most comfortable, Jane will give the appropriate guidance and prepare the necessary documents. I have no hesitation in giving Jane the highest recommendation for estate planning and probate work.
Jane prepared my wife and my trust. She spotted issues that we had not thought about that will save us (or our heirs) grief and money after one or both of us pass. We had put off doing this because it seemed like so much work and, truthfully, because I guess I didn't want to face my mortality. My wife, thankfully, convinced me to do this. Jane helped us plan our estate, not just for after our death, but for our benefit for the rest of our lives. She treats the word "estate" as including the time before our death, not just what to do with our property when we die.
I approached Jane Hall for legal advice regarding employment in the summer of 2009. She was friendly and direct-she explained legal concepts that I was unfamiliar with in an easy to understand way.
I knew nothing about Trusts and was afraid of getting it wrong. Jane took the time to explain every detail to me so it was clear. She also allowed me to help with the wording of the more complicated parts.
I am very grateful.
