    • I recommend Shirlene Bastar.
    • I hired Shirlene 6-12 months ago.
    • Shirlene handled my Trusts matter.

    We have worked with Shirlene on two different occasions. Establishing a Trust and seven years later updating that Trust. Shirlene is very personable, always prepared for meetings, very organized, and has the patience of a Saint. The most important thing is that we feel comfortable with Shirlene's knowledge and experience, and we will continue to use her services in the future.

    • I recommend Shirlene Bastar.
    • I hired Shirlene more than 3 years ago.
    • Shirlene handled my Real Estate matter.

    My husband and I have worked with Shirlene Bastar for over 5 years. She most recently handled our somewhat difficult out of state real estate transaction and has drawn up and advised us on Trust Issues for years.
    Shirlene has been professional and understanding in her interactions with us.
    It is easy to reach her either by phone or email , and she responds quickly and takes the time to explain all the legalities involved in one's issues.

    We have total confidence in her.

    • I recommend Shirlene Bastar.
    • Shirlene handled my Real Estate matter.

    Very relaxed and friendly, but VERY professional. I would also recommend her partner who is a CPA. Shirlene's strong skills in family, estate, and real estate law, and her partner's excellent skills in estate and tax planning, are a perfect combination. Exactly what we had been looking for. They have saved us a lot of money (and headaches). We will continue to work with them for our personal and corporate legal needs.
