Alice Salvo has been our attorney for estate planning and a trust procedure. Very competent and always easy to work with. She is reasonable, organized and knowledgeable. We found her through a recommendation from another attorney. She was very good at conferring with us to pinpoint our needs and implement a beneficial legal solution for our family. Alice had a knack for guiding us through the maze of estate and trust law. Seems like she is "The Attorney's Attorney" ! Heard she just was appointed to be an evening professor of wills and trusts at Southwestern School of Law! Also, just found out she is teaching a class to attorneys - the MCLE continuing education class on estate planning for attorneys at the San Fernando Valley Bar Association. Alice has a refreshing approach to estate planning, she is always accessible and with Alice you will find genuine empathy.
Very helpful attorney! After Dad's death I was confused and uncertain of what to do regarding his estate. I found attorney Salvo on Google search, explained my situation and after our phone conversation I felt tremendous relief. She made the the whole probate process easy to understand, was responsive to the family needs and always kept me informed. During the probate I realized the importance of having an estate plan so after handling Dad's matter we then retained Alice Salvo do the estate plan for our family. Her assistant and office was always pleasant and are very sharp in this area of the law. Highly recommended!
I had been referred to the office of Alice Salvo, by a Baltimore attorney, when I had to move my mother to Los Angeles, from Baltimore and into a skilled nursing facility. I can not state strongly enough how important it was for me to retain the services of Alice Salvo and her associates, when I needed to get my mother covered by Medi-Cal. There is no way I could have done this myself. No way!!! Hiring her firm was the best money I have ever spent. The firm was so expert, so professional, so caring at a difficult time in my mother's life. I would highly recommend Alice Salvo, and have recommended her practice several times, to friends dealing with geriatric law, estate planning, wills, etc. Brilliant attorneys!
A friend had a probate case with Mrs. Salvo and spoke very highly of her. Recently my wife died, my dad and I decided to put our home and other assets into a trust. As soon as we met attorney Alice Salvo we both felt comfortable with her. She respected us, and mentioned every detail so we could understand what was involved in making a trust. Initially when we met I was very much still grief stricken - but she made our meeting comfortable so both my father and I were treated with respect. Alice Salvo is an intelligent attorney regarding her specialty of law, she was compassionate as well, this is what we were looking for.
We looked into the experience of Alice Salvo and realized her credentials and experience were superior to other attorneys practicing in this field. She is friendly and thoroughly answered our question. She prepared a very professional set of documents for our Estate Plan including a Living Trust, Special Need Trust, Wills and Powers of Attorney. I would highly recommend her family and friends.
Definately one of the most helpful and intelligent estate planning attorneys in the Los Angeles area. Ms. Salvo is one of the only Estate Planning attorneys with an advanced Law degree (JD / LLM) in Estate Planning. Very friendly personality! A true expert with Probate, Conservatorship, Will, Trust and Medi-Cal planning for asset protection.
