Very satisfactory process and outcome
My husband and I retained Paul to put together an estate plan for our family. He was a pleasure to work with, listened to our questions and thoughts, and explained these complex matters exceptionally well. Paul is easy to contact. He was very responsive to our questions. We are very satisfied not only with the outcome but also with our experience working with Paul. We highly recommend him.

On top of the game
I feel very fortunate to have Paul as my attorney. I had no idea of the complexity of the processes of probate, estate trusts etc. He set out a game plan step by step and has stayed on top of everything to a T. The process and requirements was explained in terms that made complete sense. His expertise has made a very difficult time a little bit easier for me. A highlight for me was his prompt replies to any questions or concerns I had. Highly recommended.

Estate Planning
Our Estate Planning with Paul was a long overdue task to “get our affairs” in order. He made the experience easy to understand and he was supportive, knowledgeable and professional throughout the process. Paul is very personable, empathetic, and easy to work with. Maybe the best thing is his ability to explain legal terms in layman's language. We will always seek for his help whenever the situation calls for a lawyer.

Knowledgeable, communicative, efficient
We are fully satisfied with the process and outcome of our estate planning with Paul. We chose him based on his expertise in trusts and estates law. You do not want a part-timer whose practice is mostly in criminal defense or real estate for your estate planning. From start to finish this took us less than a month for a process of moderate complexity.. Most of this was done remotely, by Zoom and phone. Paul is available and communicative. Alternative choices are fully explored, leading to decisions whose implications are clear, and in which we have confidence. Highly recommended.

Highly Recommend
He helped my husband and I with our estate planning with total professionalism. Being a 2nd marriage for each of us and both with children from previous spouses, it gets very complicated. Paul Holland helped us understand our options then created a plan that protects each other and our children. We are very pleased with the whole process and also very relieved that we finally did what we needed to do after years of procrastination. It was a pleasure working with him.

Comprehensive Estate Plan
Paul was very attentive listening to our personal situation and then tailored the Estate Plan, including Wills, Trusts, and Healthcare, to our family's needs. Paul is very personable, empathetic, and easy to work with. Maybe the best thing is his ability to explain legal terms in layman's language, demystifying the process. We look forward to working with Paul over the coming years

Exceptional individual and practice
Paul came recommended from a close friend. My wife and I are beginning the estate planning process for our growing family and we could not be more impressed with Paul's practice. Clearly he is very knowledgeable about the complicated world of wills, trusts, taxes and estate planning, and he was able to simplify it in a way that made sense to us. He helped orchestrate our wills, trusts, and our advance directives. He was able to do it in a timely and professional fashion that we were impressed by. We plan on recommending Paul to friends and coworkers at similar stages in life.

Exceptional partner for estate planning
We highly recommend Paul to help with estate planning. My husband and I have complex assets, that left us paralyzed with even starting the process for over a year. Upon contacting Paul, he simplified everything, educated us on what we needed to do, has been readily available to answer any questions and helped us tackle this huge responsibility. I have nothing but praise and gratitude to him and would recommend Paul to all of my friends. I get the sense that he can tackle any matter of complexity in this area. If you are overwhelmed by the task ahead, save yourself time and call Paul.

Attention to Detail, With an Eye on the Big Picture
I am a fellow attorney who has engaged Paul on 3 different occasions over the years to prepare a new will and related estate plan for me (as a client). Each time, I had an excellent experience with Paul. Paul provides exceptional quality, while also offering an excellent value. Paul's knowledge and professionalism instill instant confidence. His demeanor and communication skills instill an instant comfort level with difficult subject matter. Paul is held in very high regard by his peers, and he is the T&E attorney that many other attorneys engage for their own trust work with full confidence, when the need arises.

Estate planning
Paul Holland was a pleasure to work with. He has excellent inter personal skills. Paul obviously has first class command of his subject in the field of Wills, Trusts etc., but still was able to communicate with us in a readily understandable way. He came up with some interesting solutions in our particular situation, and the resultant documents were beautifully prepared. His office environment is professional, yet pleasant. In summary Paul is a class act, and we can enthusiastically recommend him.

Retired
My wife and I have worked with a number of attorneys through the years . We are in our mid seventies. It was now time to select an attorney that would help us set up our estate for the distribution of our assets to our five daughters when we were no longer alive. He took the time to explain everything so throughly that we hardly had any questions, we had thought of, left un answered. We never knew that any lawyer would ever be this professional. Paul G. Holland is a must for any one person, couple or family to hire for complete peace of mind in estate planing. We now know we made a great decision hiring Paul.

Review of Paul Holland
Following the death of my husband, my children and I had numerous estate questions which Paul answered with patience and kindness. He was and is always available to handle every matter, and he made the process understandable at every step. Additionally, he worked with me to update my will and establish the legal documents I wanted. Throughout all of this, Paul has ensured that what he does reflects what I want and need.

Professional with a great personality!
After meeting with Paul to setup a Trust for my family, I was very impressed how my calls were immediately returned and all my questions were explained in terms I could understand. I thought this process would be long and extensive, but Paul made it easy and I would highly recommend his services.

Excellent Service! Exactly the outcome I was looking for!
Paul Holland provided me with excellent service.  Mr. Holland not only handled my case in the most professional manner but you could tell that he honestly cared about the outcome of the case.  Mr. Holland responded immediately to every question I had and he always kept me up to date on my estate plan.  He helped me achieve exactly the outcome that I was looking for and I'm truly grateful for all of the assistance.  I will not only use him again if ever needed, but I will recommend him to anyone that could use his services.
