Very Knowledgeable and Caring
My husband and I were referred to Ms. Yadgarova by family friends who were delighted to have worked with her. My personal experience was exceptional. She is knowledgeable and an experienced attorney who explained and guided us through estate planning. She took her time explaining the whole process and was very patient with us. We would definitely work with her again.

Smart, knowledgeable, and compassionate
I would recommend Ms. Yadgarova to anyone looking for help with estate planning. She helped me in planning my mother's estate and her advice was a godsend. Not only does she know her stuff, but she was able to explain the most complicated parts to me in layman's terms. She accommodated the needs of me and my family and was always available, accessible, and responsive, during one of the most trying times of my life. You're in such great hands with this attorney! I trust her with my life!

Worth every penny !!!
My husband and I were very happy with Mrs. Yadgarova and highly recommend her to our friends and family. We had hired her to handle our estate planning and she was very informative and professional. We were new to all this and were very happy to see she was dedicated and spent a lot of time with us answering all our questions/concerns.

Amazing
So easy to work with. Helps every step , makes the process of wills very easy to understand. I'm so glad I found her, she was recommended by a friend. I have met many lawyers and they all try to take their time and make more money. Irina was straight to the point

Professional and smart
Irina helped me and husband to create a will, health care proxy and power of attorney. She was very knowledgable and very professional. Answered all my questions thoroughly, and was easy to talk with. She also was able to help out my mother in law with her Medicaid/Medicare elder planning. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs legal help.
