We just finished an engagement with Janet L Brewer in which she guided us through the process of replacing our 22-year-old wills and living trust with new versions. I can't think of anything negative to say. She knows estate law forwards and backwards, and was able to advise us that some of the ideas that we walked in there thinking that we wanted weren't the best idea.
Our replacement living trust document doesn't use a single sentence from our previous document, as far as I can tell. But it incorporates our wishes and California's laws, and she taught us the reasoning behind everything it says.
She's modern: she does email and PDF and such. She's a great communicator. Never once did we have to ask her to repeat something in different words so that we could understand it.
Her office staff are great. Besides Janet herself, we dealt with a paralegal and an administrator, and they were both sharp as a tack, helpful, friendly, and capable.
Her fee was entirely reasonable, and the amount of her and her staff's time that we got for that fee was impressive.
We recommend Janet L Brewer without reservation.
My family and I went to see Ms. Brewer regarding estate planning and tax questions. Ms. Brewer was very professional and informative she answered all of our questions and acknowleged our mother's concerns regarding the issues.
Rest assure we will utilize her services to best fit our needs and would highly recommend her law office to anyone seeking help with estate planning.
My family and I met with Ms. Brewer regarding a title transfer- inheritance between parent/ children. She was very informative and considerate of our specific situation. We were very content and satisfied with Ms. Brewer's professionalism and knowledge of her field. She answered all our questions and presented to us multiple options.
Janet Brewer and her staff always go above and beyond. Case in point; a client of mine was dying without having a will or trust in place and Janet came to the hospital to complete and sign all the necessary documents. She had everything wrapped up within a day which was unbelievably helpful since the client died two days later. Thanks to Janet's amazing service the widow was left protected. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Janet Brewer. She helped us with our wills and trusts effectively and even made a "house call" once when I was sick and could not come to the office in a timely fashion.
I met Janet when we both were attending Golden Gate Law School classes for a Master's degree in Tax. At the time, I was also a practicing attorney. I am now retired and, hence, inactive. Janet has represented me as well as my then clients and friends that I have referred to her. She is incredible knowledgeable and competent. More over, she is honest and sincere. Janet is one attorney I can truly say has integrity.
