Mr. Drobny made the whole estate planning process bearable. He was very easy to talk to and explained any questions in detail. I was very satisfied with the estate plan that he prepared.
We have had Mark as our Estate Planning attorney for close to 25 years. He keeps us informed about Estate Planning issues in a very timely manner. We have referred many friends and business associates to him. All have found his advise invaluable.
Mark did an excellent job rewriting and updating our trusts and wills. He also explained the pertinent legal issues in layman terms so we could under stand them, with out talking down to us.
19 years after Mark set up our original trust, we had it updated with latest tax law changes. His office is the very definition of efficiency. Mark had us bring everything needed to our meeting, explained everything to my wife's satisfaction (no easy task) and had us return 2 weeks later to sign the documents, explaining each as we went. Well worth the monry (cost was very good and we got a break as repeat customers!).
Mark and his team assisted us with setting up a TRUST for us and our family. They were very thorough, and did their best to explain everything to our understanding and in laymen's terms (not in unintelligible legal mumbo-jumbo)... Mark and his team were very prompt and thorough, professional, kept commitments and were available for questions during the process, without charging for every second you talked to them. They present the finished product in a well organized binder and a process outlined for those that will be involved in your plans (I liked that a lot).. This was not our first rodeo, and our experience with Mark and his team rises way above and shines bright next to our previous experiences regarding this matter.
My dentist husband and I have been clients since 1998 and we have been superbly taken care of in all our Estate planning matters. Mr. Drobny is well known and respected in California Dental circles. We reside in the Los Angeles area and Sacramento has never been a problem since most matters are handled easily over the phone. His is a highly efficient office and since I am the picky one in our family, if you require great service, you'll receive it there.
Emily was an excellent provider for my trust...She was very clear and attentive tony questions and understood my position with developing a new trust...I would highly recommend her for anyone who is trilling to be clear with what the trust needs are. Thank you to Emily for such an outstanding effort...
Mr. Drobny was recommended to us by our investment company and we were very pleased with the job he did for us. He is extremely easy to talk with and made us feel very comfortable.
We have been with Mr Drobny for 30 years. He wrote our original trust and as our life changed, he helped rewrite the original trust. New trust laws and our changing life stages required an entirely new trust. He pointed out many things we never thought of, and knew how to handle things we found difficult.
It was an amazing experience to work with Mark Drobny and his office staff. I met with him and showed him the Trust I had done without a lawyer, asking him to update it. He was most concerned as I had amended it several times and he explained that there were many conflicts and my estate could go to the "wrong person". He believed I should get a new trust immediately. In eight days, his office completed a new trust, will, power of attorney, and advanced health care document. I received the draft documents via email, made changes, called staff in his office, etc. to complete this process in a very short time. Each person was very helpful and responsive. I met with one of the other lawyers in his office to sign the final documents (Philip Sousa) and he was also very competent. My anxiety was relieved greatly by having these documents completed in such a short time. He also discounted the costs (I think he did this because I had much of the paperwork completed prior to visiting him the first time). Also, I contacted him originally because of the excellent estate planning workshop he presented where he offered a free consultation if we so desired. He did not pressure me to re do my trust, and it was my decision to ask him to do this. I would certainly recommend his services to others.
