I called Marty Burbank and he returned my call within 10 minutes. It was wonderful to speak to a real person who was able to point me in the right direction with my call about VA benefits. I would highly recommend Mr. Burbank for his integrity, knowledge and reponsiveness

I went to Marty in order to have him evaluate a living trust and life estate that had been done by another attorney. Something had gone very wrong with the life estate portion in the trust and I was being assessed supplemental property taxes by the County Tax Assessor. My attorney was being very unresponsive and the clock was ticking on the tax bill..
Marty looked over the filing documents done by the previous attorney and spotted the error right away, taking the time to explain how the life estate should have been handled. He told me, honestly, that he could charge me a fee to straighten out the mess with the assessor, or I could instead do it myself by simply showing up at the County office, documents in hand.
He also described the quitclaim deeds I would have to file and once again ... gave me the option of doing it myself by downloading, filling out and filing them, or he could do it for me, again for a fee.
He could have used a hard sell to have me turn it all over to him to charge more money, but instead showed me how to do it all myself.
You know what? Given the option and knowing what's involved, I'll probably have Marty do the forms anyway, just to make sure they're handled properly. Couldn't be happier with the outcome of my visit with him; I now feel empowered to put my living trust back on course.

When we met with Marty about helping us set up our Trust (something we had been puting off for waaaaaayyyy too long because we were so overwhelmed by it) we immediately felt at ease. Not only did he go through all the options, but took his time to patiently answer all of our questions. He is really an expert in his field and really easy to like him. I exhaled as we left his office.
Everything was ready to sign when he said it would be and he did such a great job setting up our trust that we hired him to put our business into a corporation.

This is not really a review of Marty, but him and his assistn. We met with marty and his assistant, Eracely (not sure of the spelling). They spent a lot of time helping us figure out what we needed. We had met with other Lawyers but we felt at home with Marty and Eracely.

Thank you for steering us in the right direction to get my mom's VA survivor's benefits which at this point she can really use! Anyway I believe I emailed you that she was awarded benefits and retroactive benefits too!

Marty Burbank understands what it takes to run a small business and how to minimize risk. In particular, he provides sound advice to start ups and to small businesses which want to take the next step in growth. This includes support on choosing a legal entity such as an L.L.C., contracts, partnerships, and supplier relationships.

Marty Burbank is not just an amazing lawyer with an in-depth knowledge of the law, but an amazing human being! This is a guy who enjoys going to tax conferences to learn about new tax laws. Can you believe that? But that is exactly who I want setting up my estate. In the two years I have been working with Marty, I trust him implicitly and he has never steered me wrong. He has pointed out things I didn't even know I had to look out for. You can't do better!

Mr. Burbank is very approachable and easy to speak with. As an attorney, he is a thoughtful listener, and most importantly a problem solver. Martin is straight forward and efficient. His concern for detials and outcomes has proven to be beneficial.
Mr Burbanks positive atttitude, empathy, and listening skills are endearing qualities that lend themselves to a very positive experience.
