A 5 star Experience
After attending a free seminar I scheduled an appointment to discuss my needs. I received wonderful suggestions and treated with respect & concern. All of the staff were kind and attentive in making this journey to make the trust understandable & easy. I highly recommend using DeBruyckere Law.

Very Professional
Services provided were on a professional - informative - relaxed manner. All questions and concerns addressed. Also being made aware that any questions or needed guidance in the future was only a phone call away is comforting being that it is what happens in the future as we age and have care concerns, financial changes and control passed to our successor trustees that the time, understanding and patience by Attorney Debruyckere will actually be appreciated.

Super Knowledgeable
Attorney Dan DeBruyckere and his staff can be described in a single word “outstanding”. They are super knowledgeable in their field, informative, patient and courteous, give you as much time and attention as you will need to ask questions and feel comfortable with the final work product. I recently engaged this law office to create a family trust and I cannot be happier with my decision.

Excellent Client Service
My wife and I met with Attorney Dan Debruyckere and discussed concerns we had about our son and the Special Needs Trust. As an attorney, he reviewed the trust with us and assured us that at this time the trust is secure and does not need to be changed. We feel comfortable knowing that if negative circumstances occur that affect the trust, we could ask for a revision. We thank Attorney Debruyckere for taking the time with us to discuss our concerns and to explain legalities of the trust.

Went to a seminar 3+ years ago and then met with Mr. Debruyckere. I was somewhat skeptical until we had a chance to sit down with him one on one. The meeting was more specific to my situation and focused on very specific matters that needed to be taken. The results were a real sense of accomplishment and a sense of security. Our three (3) year follow up meeting was brief yet useful to address some questions. Going forward.

Our Best Investment to Date was Establishing a Family Trust
Daniel Debruyckere and his Law Firm views every client as part of their family. My wife and I recently attended our complimentary review of our Trust documents. Dan expertly answered all of our questions thoroughly and with detail. He also encouraged us to make the review a yearly event. Since the creation of our Trust in 2013, we have felt at ease both financially and from the point of view of protecting our family & modest wealth. We worked hard over the years to acquire our assets, and Debruyckere Law Offices has given us the tools to protect them.
