Andrea and her team did a great job of helping us update our trust and create an estate planning portfolio. We don't live in southern California, but wanted to have Andrea do our trust because she lives near our daughter, who is the executrix of our trust. That put an extra burden on her office, but they handled it well, and we are happy with the end product.
I felt fortunate to have Andrea Gherini process my Trust. She's very efficient, gets the job done, and, equally as important,has an easy manner about her. And, of course, ditto her staff!
Andrea helped us to understand the trust process and how to handle our parent estate. We couldn't have done it without her expertise.
Andrea has been invaluable as we have worked with the the transition of our parents Trust and then the closure of the Trust. She has always been professional, as well as personable. When my mother first established Andrea as her Trust lawyer, she was able to clearly explain complex legal rules and help to develop a plan for administration of the Trust. This was done in a respectful manner which, along with the professional guidance Andrea provided, was important to my mother as well as to our family. Andrea has helped us during difficult periods and also has helped us to effectively navigate through some unforeseen issues that arose.
I have known Ms. Gherini for several years. My mother and I attended a workshop at Casa de las Campanas, a retirement community, in Rancho Bernardo, and Ms. Gherini was the keynote speaker. I was very impressed by both her professionalism and her knowledge. At that time my mother made the decision to have Ms. Gherini re-do her Living Trust. She did an outstanding job and was a delight to work with. I was so impressed that my husband and I decided to have her do our Trust. A few years later it became necessary to admit my husband to an Alzheimer's facility. I had to obtain Conservatorship of my husband to avoid a problem with a stepson that we have had no relationship with for years. Ms. Gherini was my rock and has been with me every step of the way through this nightmare. It is not only my pleasure to recommend her but an honor to do so. You will find her not only extremely knowledgeable but also kind and compassionate.
Andrea has worked on several trusts for my family and I have found her to be very trustworthy and honest. She is experienced and knowledgeable and has a very calm and confident manner.
I would recommend her highly.
Attorney Gherini and her staff are very professional, helpful and kept us informed along the way. We are very satisfied with their service and have used Attorney Gherini for a number of our legal needs regarding trusts and wills and Medi-cal application..
I hired Andrea to create my estate plan which at age 51 was way past due. She is very knowledgeable about both the legal and personal aspects of creating Wills, Living Trusts and Medical Directives. She took her time explaining all the legal issues and pro’s and con’s of all my decisions. She and her team also paid very good attention to detail and follow-up. I would highly recommend her.
In creating three complex trusts for us, Andrea Gherini was very easy to work with, as well as being very thorough. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable, detailed, and established a feeling of trust in her capabilities right away. She made sure she explained each aspect of the trusts to us, so we would thoroughly understand what was being set up, and so we could be sure our wishes would be established in writing.
Andrea has helped navigate Trust issues involving other family members that could have been very messy, but has been and is being resolved. She has been able to relate to the issues on a personal as well as a professional level.
