    • I recommend Herbert Chavers.
    • I hired Herbert 6-12 months ago.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Herb Chavers helped us resolve all California trust issues for two successor trustees (family members) located outside the state, so all communications were by phone and email. My initial impression when I interviewed Herb by phone was that he was knowledgeable, was able to clearly explain the issues to be dealt with, and open to discussion about his background and fee structure. In our case, there were real estate issues to be resolved in addition to all the other trust issues. Heirs of the trust were located in several states. Herb guided the trustees through the process. Where there were actions that the trustees could execute on their own behalf, he gave us clear instructions, which reduced our legal fees. Herb and his staff were always available for questions and responded in a timely manner. Herb kept us informed and up to date on all matters that he handled. He completed the work for us in 2013. As shown in our ratings, there were no negatives and no surprises in our relationship with Herb Chavers, which is fairly uncommon in most legal matters. I strongly recommend him.

    I have known this lawyer for about 20 years both as a colleague and then, because I have such absolute confidence in him, as one of his clients to create my family trust. I recommend Herb unconditionally. He is kind, incredibly honest and extremely competent.
