Highly Recommend
Roman Aminov has be somewhat of a guardian angel for my family. Our first meeting was great because he came to my house to meet my grandmother and help her with her estate planning. Next he helped my mother with her deed transfer. And then he was there for me when both of them passed away to help me with probate court and a deed transfer. He was so kind and caring with all my family been through as well as informative and professional. Even is office staff Alyssa Kang was helpful and professional. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need.

Honest, hard-working and fast
Roman Aminov put my mind to rest regarding my probate case. After going round in circles for the summer with two prior attorneys, it was a huge relief to find Roman. From the moment we spoke, he inspired confidence in his ability to handle my case and I no longer felt alone in the process of dealing with the New York surrogate courts. Roman communicated with me on a regular basis and was very straight forward with billing. He is very efficient and kept me up to date throughout a very difficult process. I have no question about his integrity and never had any doubts about what I was being billed for. Roman and his staff really do "treat you like family." He was never too busy to speak with me and would answer my emails within minutes of me sending them. My only regret is that I did not find Roman sooner and I also am sad he cannot do my personal estate planning since I live outside of New York. He knows the law and, just as importantly, he knows the people in the court system and has built up professional relationships with them after thousands of cases. My emails and phone calls prior to meeting Roman and trying to go it on my own would go unanswered but Roman would get results fast. By the way, his fee in the end, was significantly less than the fee quoted by the two earlier attorneys. If I could rate Roman higher than five stars I would. I can't think of any negative input in nearly nine months of working with Roman. As a duly licensed CPA, I attest to his professionalism and diligence in serving his clients.

A true superstar in his field.
Not only did Mr. Aminov and his staff do a masterful job drafting my own will, but I routinely refer my clients to him and they have always told me that they are very happy with his services. His depth of knowledge in his field is impressive and he a gentleman who takes time to explain things to his clients. I cannot speak highly enough of him or of his firm.

Roman Aminov and his team go above and beyond to meet their clients needs. After receiving multiple quotes from different firms, Roman and his team provided us with a competitively priced estate plan. He not only is a great attorney but a fiduciary for his clients. If you are looking to set up an estate plan, him and his firm are the place to go! He will provide you with all your options and not pick what is most profitable, but what is best for you. True meaning of a fiduciary!! Thank you Roman!

A Leader in the Estate Planning Industry
When I met Mr. Roman I had just suffered a significant loss and didn't know where to get help. I chose this firm based on reviews and they exceeded my expectations. They helped me navigate my painful journey so that my focus was mostly directed to my personal healing rather than healing and legal/financial matters. My friends have followed my recommendations to involve Mr. Aminov in their estate planning needs. Recently, I needed another service and again, Mr. Roman Aminov, Rose, Alyssa and others made me felt special: from the cosy office to the welcoming reception office you feel people care. They are on top of call backs, keeping you updated and even making recommendations for future needs that might evade you. I rate Mr. Roman Aminov 5 Star because they are that good! I highly recommend this service for all your estate planning needs.

The Epitome of Professionalism
When I recently found myself in needing all sorts of financial and legal elder planning on behalf of my mom (from power of attorney to possibly establishing a trust to further Medicaid planning), I consulted with over a dozen lawyers. I ultimately chose Roman Aminov for numerous reasons: Prior to meeting Roman in person, he answered all my questions patiently and expertly. I especially appreciated him raising issues that other attorneys did not during our numerous email exchanges and phone calls—in other words, while other lawyers saw mere boxes to check, Roman took the time and effort to understand our unique situation and was able to tailor his knowledge and advice accordingly. He was always prompt in his replies, never made me feel rushed, and consistently made me feel confident in his recommendations. It's also worth pointing out that given where my mom and I live, meeting him in person eventually involved inconvenient travel. I say this NOT as a knock against his practice. Just the opposite. I point this out to forcefully underscore how confident I felt in my decision to choose Roman—a decision validated upon meeting him in person. He was friendly, attentive, and truly the epitome of professionalism. As a result of working with him, my mom and I both feel more secure and prepared for our future. Should we need further estate and elder-law planning, without hesitation I would seek Roman's counsel.

Absolute Confidence in Service!
I truly enjoyed my experience with Roman. Him and his staff are very warm and receptive when you engaged them in conversation. Roman is mindful of his customers and gives them reading material that guide your decision making. He makes sure that you understand the decisions that you make before finalizing your commitment. My wife is proficiency in English is still developing and he took the necessary steps to make sure that she understood everything and was involved within the planning the whole time. That very considerate and respectful on his part. My main purpose for the meeting with Roman was to put the support systems in place for my wife in case something would happen to me. And him as his staff totally delivered!!! In addition, Rose would call me up and review what was discussed and made sure that I knew how my final decisions can play out. She did a lot of double checking with Roman to make sure that I was making the best decision that I could make. I loved the amount of attention they put on helping me create living wills for my wife and I. Also, we purchased health care proxies, power of attorney and the form on who is in charge of your funeral. My wife and I purchased each of these. I truly recommend Roman and his staff. You will find that they treat you better than most lawyers, coworkers and anyone else you know. Besides being very considerate, they are intelligent and know exactly what they are doing. They invest the proper time into their customers which is also an investment in our future. A human touch within the wild.

Exceptional Lawyer!
Atty. Roman Aminov is the epitome of what a lawyer should be! It’s like talking to your most trusted son. He is kind yet honest and straightforward. He is professional and yet down to earth. His fee is very fair! I’ve work with other lawyers before in NYC, where I felt like I was in a metered cab, and you could sense the building up of the fee the longer you take the lawyer’s time. He is not that type of a lawyer. He is definitely exceptional! We left his office thinking of what else I could have him help us with!

The Best
Roman Aminov and his team was a complete pleasure to work with. Roman responded to my inquiry quickly, and answered any questions or concerns that I had. Roman also shared some information that helped save me money on things that I could do on my own, that were very simple and’ don’t require his assistance. I am very happy that I hired him, and got the results I needed so quickly! I would definitely recommend him, and hire him and his team to handle my legal matters going forward. Completely professional, compassionate, effective, and totally honest! Thank you Roman, Adelina, and Alyssa! Matt K

Everything was fantastic. 5 stars!
Roman really took the time to explain everything to my parents without making them feel pressured but allowing them to continue to voice their concerns and questions. Roman continued to patiently explain and attend any concerns my parents had. After which my parents agreed that Roman Aminov was our guy! I have also always had courteous and professional experiences with everyone else involved at the law offices of Roman Aminov. The closing process went pretty smooth as they thoroughly yet efficiently explained everything. I feel my family is in good hands with the estate planning that law offices provides. Very pleased with the overall experience and can understand why they garner such glowing reviews already.

Your best bet for estate planning care and service.
My family and I couldn’t be more pleased with the knowledge, professionalism, and legitimate care we received from the Law Offices of Roman Aminov in helping us with our estate planning. Their team was quick to respond to our initial call - on a weekend no less - and was able to provide us with an immediate consultation that Monday, which was very important to us. They quickly got our paperwork prepared over the course of only a few days, and soon after they invited us to sign the documents where they offered us the highest quality service. They were patient and informative. We couldn’t have asked for more. My family and I highly recommend their team. You won’t regret it.

Roman Aminov’s office was fantastic, extremely kind and caring ..
To simply put it Roman Aminov’s office was fantastic: Extremely knowledgeable and to the point. Most of all extremely kind and caring individuals. After dealing with my father’s passing, Roman was respectful in listening to an unfiltered stream of concerns I had. He patiently listened to everything I had to say and formalized a plan to address my issues. He took all the legal stress away from me and took care of everything. Roman’s office assisted my family with transferring my late father’s house to my mother’s name. Dealing with a loved passing is difficult for everyone; but Roman made the legal side of the situation easy to deal with. I also want to give a special shout out to Alyssa. Although I had a ton of questions or concerns, she was a fantastic person who walked our entire family through the process. From the Bottom of my heart thank you .
