We first met Victor Medina at a dinner he was sponsoring to discuss the world of eldercare planning for potential clients. We had no idea how fortuitous we were. To start, we were impressed with how patient and thoughtful Victor was that night as he gave each of the guests’ individual attention. He took the time to explain several options that addressed each of our questions and issues. Based on how well Victor presented himself and his firm, and how knowledgeable he was on various issues, we decided to have a follow-up meeting.
The follow-up meeting exceeded our expectations and soon proved to be very beneficial. We decided to engage Victor and his firm to handle my mother's application for VA benefits and to help us with our own future planning. Victor and his team helped guide us through the VA process providing legal expertise and indispensable experience. When the process bogged down Victor knew just what to do to get things moving again. Whenever we had questions, his office always responded quickly with clear and concise information. As we worked with the firm it became clear to us that not only had we chosen a knowledgeable and seasoned legal team but also one we could trust and cares that we make and execute the right plans for us.
As our confidence in Victor grew so did our relationship. Victor and his team have supported us in both legal and financial planning. After explaining to him what would make us comfortable, he immediately started crafting plan options for us. After careful and detailed reviews with Victor we were able to select options that fit us, and we came away with plans that made us feel comfortable and confident in the direction we are taking. Victor and his team have an amazing ability to listen and understand what you are conveying to them. We feel very fortunate to have met Victor. With Victor and his team as part of our counsel we feel we can navigate our future journey with greater confidence. That dinner we went to is the gift that keeps on giving.

Victor helped my family set up an estate plan and, in time of crisis, helped us execute that plan. He has been essential in working through the challenges associated with elder care and estate planning - and very responsive when we have needed him, and very giving of his time when needed.

The initial conference where Victor listened to our concerns and explained what his firm could do to satisfy them convinced us that the Medina Law Group was exactly the right place for us. We have had a total of three planning meetings with Victor and his able staff, all of which ran overtime through no fault of theirs, without extra charge. The result of this has been probably the most complete set of legal documents and detailed plans for our estate, our wills and our health directives that we have ever seen or heard about. Every base is covered, and everywhere we take the trust document in this process of funding our new Revocable Living Trust, it continues to impress all the professionals we work with. Every request for assistance or guidance that I have made has been handled promptly, efficiently and courteously by the Medina Law Group staff and we are already well on our way toward funding or our trust, in less than two weeks since the establishment of it. We are so impressed that we signed on for their yearly Client Care service, which provides for consultation and an annual review of our estate and health situation for a nominal yearly fee. Compared to standard hourly charges for such legal work, it’s a real bargain.

I met Victor a few years ago at a conference he organized. Since then he and I have corresponded regularly on a variety of matters. He is superbly talented and forward thinking in his ability to assist his clients. I highly recommend and endorse him.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Victor for well over a decade through our association with the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys. I have been most impressed with Victor's ability to find creative solutions to his client's estate planning needs. His background in psychology enables him to elevate his client meetings from a mere data gathering session as is most common in the industry, to structured counseling experience supported by a structured planning process. It is this skill set that empowers his clients to identify their true goals and concerns and then develop customized plans that accomplish their planning goals. Victor has a unique ability to stay on the cutting of edge of technology to enhance the manner in which he communicates with his clients and their family. Victor is caring, compassionate, a hard worker, strong communicator, and outstanding counselor. I highly endorse this attorney.
