He responded within 10 minutes via email. He asked many questions and was thorough, kind, caring and though he couldn't help me, he was quick to let me know how to widen my search! I would recommend Mr. Palley to anyone!

John assuaged a lot of my worries and concerns regarding my estate planning. For me, his greatest strength was that he listened to all my questions and answered in them in language that I could understand. No hidden agendas and no misleading -- just straight-forward and helpful advice and execution.

I am an attorney who specializes in medical malpractice defense in Maryland. I was named the Executor of an Estate in Sacramento County, California and rapidly learned that my Estates and Trusts experience in Maryland was not up to the task of California Probate. I searched for an experienced Estates firm to assist me through the process and found John Palley and his firm.
I cannot say with enough enthusiasm how strongly I would recommend John and his firm. He was incredibly accessible, knowledgeable and supportive though the whole process. Additionally, I found his Associate and his staff to be equally accessible, helpful and professional.
Thanks to John and his team for a very successful outcome!

Mr. Palley was so helpful, kind, courteous and very interested in my issues. Mr. Palley took the time to investigate my issues and respond to me before making any conclusions. He made sure he knew what he was talking about and not just a "for instance" kind of lawyer as the one I had spoken to before Mr. Palley. I am so glad I found Mr. Palley and would highly recommend recommend him for anyone that wants an awesome lawyer that is truly interested in protecting their best interests.

It was a pleasure working alongside Mr. Palley on a complex and hostile probate matter. Since then I have referred clients to Mr. Palley and remain comfortable doing so based upon his knowledge, experience and people skills.

John Palley provides "Top Shelf" service!!! He assisted my family with a Living trust and Will. The process was easy and turn key. John took the time to understand our situation and put together a program that put our family in the best position to be protected. His knowledge and responsiveness is second to none. I highly recommend working with John. He is a man of integrity and professionalism.

John Palley helped me through the probate process when my husband passed away. His knowledge of probate law and estate planning including testamentary and special needs trusts is unmatched. Mr. Palley guided me through one of the most difficulty processes a person can go through. I would recommend him to everyone I know.
