We have known and used Shirlene Bastar's services for over a dozen years now--both for business and personal and recommended her to many relatives and friends. Besides her extensive wealth of knowledge, she is a great listener and very professional. She has a great way of looking at something from many different angles and does so prior to offering her expert advice. Don't hesitate to align yourself with a true pro!
Shirlene helped me set up my company and wrote contracts that made sure my interests were protected, while also providing fair terms for my clients. These contracts have helped me negotiate multiple business relationships. Not only are her written documents spot-on, but she's always been exceptionally responsive and available to help me with time-sensitive questions. Highly professional and easy to work with, I have great peace of mind that my interestes are protected. I look forward to continuing to work with Shirlene in the future!
Ms. Bastar has assisted me and my clients with our Estate, Succesion and Business Planning for many years. She has a way of taking a complicated subject and making it understandable for everyone involved in the process. She is attentive to details and prompt in preparing and delivering documents. Ms. Bastar is also friendly ande pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend her firm for your Estate, Legacy, Succesion and Business Planning.
I have been working with Shirlene Bastar since 2007, and she has been instrumental in not only the establishment of my company, but also navigating the bumps which inevitably arise along the way.
Shirlene is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and professional. She and her team are highly responsive and always take the time to answer any questions I have, and fully explain my options to me. Shirlene is fair-minded and kind - two qualities that I value highly in an attorney and believe are difficult to find.
I have recommended Shirlene to others and will continue to do so.
She handled a very difficult situation for me with grace and determination - advising me where to push and where to step back - the result of which was the best possible outcome under the circumstances. The situation was not only legally vexing, but also very emotional, and Shirlene's patience as I filtered out the emotion was instrumental in the successful resolution of the situation.
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.
have used her as my primary attorney for over 10 years. She has helped set up retirement , negotiate contracts , help set up a partnership in my practice.In the practice she helped set up a structure to allow partners to buy new equipment and make it safe and equitable for partners with different goals . She helps ensure financial structure is adhered to. Sets up yearly reviews to cover legal and financial issues. I refer anyone who asks for legal advice .
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.
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.
Shirlene not only goes the extra mile for us, but does so with compassion and understanding. She is extremely knowledgeable and has her clients' best interest at heart.
I have worked with Shirlene for several years and she does a terrific job with both estate planning and business law. Great to work with and fairly priced.
