Excellent Experience
I recently hired Attorney Juliet Gavriel Cohen to create a trust for my assets to be passed down eventually to my young son, if anything should ever happen to me. I was a bit overwhelmed by the complexity of the job at first, in part because I sought to arrange a trusted third party to help handle the assets if my son should inherit at a young age. Attorney Cohen's guidance was impeccable - she explained the process very clearly, she was always available to answer my follow-up questions, and she handled herself with all the patience, poise, and sensitivity one could hope for when tackling such an emotional and profound task. I can't recommend her enough. Rego Park, Queens, NY

excellent work on will
Ms. Gavriel wrote my will, and I was very satisfied with the process. She explains things well and is very respectful. Of course, the real test of her work will be after I die, but I don't think I'll be able to post a review then. In the meantime, I was perfectly satisfied with her work.

Highly Recommend
My experience started with attending a probate seminar back in October, 2017 with regard to settling my father's estate after his passing. I had no experience whatsoever in how to proceed and was extremely nervous and anxious. When I signed on with Ms. Gavriel's law firm, she put my mind at ease and consulted with me on the entire process from beginning to end. Every experience at the law firm was exceptional and thorough from the first meeting to the signing of the final documents for the estate. Ms. Gavriel was very professional, extremely caring/compassionate, and knowledgeable. I had very personal questions, and she listened with a pleasant and kind demeanor. If the need arises again, I will be using her services and recommend others do as well.

Happy Experience
Juliet was always available when I had questions (and I had quite a few). Her responses were always prompt and explanations were very clear & concise. I would highly recommend attending her seminars first. After attending, I was convinced that she was the attorney I needed & I wasn't disappointed.

Five Star Plus Rating
Just finished signing a "Trust" that Juliet Gavriel prepared. Had been to several seminars by other Estate Planning Attorneys and felt like they were trying to sell something. With Juliet, I felt that she wanted what was best for me, and wanted me comfortable with whatever decision I made. She answered my questions, spent time with my family and was very thorough and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend the Law Offices of Juliet Gavriel, P.C. and her staff to anyone contemplating Estate Planning for the benefit of themselves and their families. P i

Pleased with our experience with Ms. Gavriel
My husband and I were planning to draw up a will. After attending an estate planning seminar led by Juliet Gavriel, we decided to do a trust. Ms Gavriel was very professional, personable, and extremely knowledgeable. She walked us through the entire process, explaining in detail each and every step. We were very pleased with our experience.

Knowledgeable lawyer who expresses a love for her job
Juliet Gavriel is a knowledgeable lawyer who expresses a love for her job and a desire to inform and guide her clients. She not only gave us an overview of every aspect of a trust, but she addressed all of our concerns and questions until we understood exactly what happens throughout the life of the trust. One of our major concerns was our need to get in touch with her if we have any questions, or if issues come up involving some aspect of the trust. She assured us that she would always be available to answer any questions or concerns that we might have. Since then, we have called her many times, sometimes just to confirm what we thought was going to happen. Each and every time she answered every question, never rushing us, and showing complete interest and understanding. We are very happy that she is handling our trust and would not hesitate to recommend her to others needing these services.

Very Satisfied
My wife and I went to several estate planning seminars conducted by different estate planning firms. We picked Ms. Gavriel to do our estate plan. From her easy explanations, patience, great service, and attention to detail, we are very satisfied to be Ms. Gavriel's clients.

Knowledgeable and thorough
My wife and I had done a trust before. Much to our surprise, when we came to review our existing plan, we were very surprised to find out that none of our assets were transferred into the Trust. We were very happy to have met Ms. Gavriel and now we have a complete estate plan.

Highly Recommended Estate Planning Attorney
It has been a pleasure to work with Juliet Gavriel. She has been patient, professional and answered all of our questions. For our family creating a trust was a very daunting endeavor, but she has made the process easy.

A Very Comfortable Experience
I just recently signed revocable trust papers with Juliet Gavriel. In fact, the papers were signed on Christmas Eve. Ms. Gavriel obliged my last minute request for a date change because our previous date conflicted with some banking matters I needed to attend to. This accomodation was typical of the concern she had shown throughout the process of setting up my trust. The whole notion of trusts was new and rather mysterious to me and my partner, but Ms. Gavriel was not only thoroughly knowledgeable about this aspect of law, she was able to explain it patiently and in layman's terms, step by step, making sure we were at ease with her explanations. She or her assistant always returned our calls promptly and responded to our emails in a timely manner. We felt that her support was there when we needed it from day one up to the signing. Highly recommended.

Best attorney in NYC
We used Ms. Gavriel's services for my parent's estate planning. It was a very scary process to even think about, especially not knowing anything in reference to how this would work. Ms. Gavriel explained everything thoroughly, she kept us informed throughout the whole process, and gave my parents a sense of tranquility that was priceless. Strongly recommend!!!

I MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMEND the professional services of Juliet Gavriel, Esq. I had attended several 1-2 hour seminars given by various Estate Planning Attorneys and even started the process of creating a Trust with another attorney. Then I attended Juliet Gavriel's seminar and was so very impressed by the depth of her knowledge, competency, trustworthiness and personableness. The choice was clear; I am very pleased that Juliet Gavriel prepared these very significant Trust documents which will have a profound effect on my heirs. Thank you Juliet for giving me great peace of mind knowing everything is order. I am glad to know that I can always rely upon her wise counsel in the future.

"I consulted Juliet with respect to a trust that my mother-in-law had set up prior to her recent demise. The trust included a house in which my mother-in-law had resided. I asked Juliet for help in drafting releases that will need to be signed upon the buyout by my wife and by my wife’s sister of their respective interests in this house, which is now owned and continues to be occupied by a third sister. The advice I received from Juliet was invaluable. She is not only very knowledgeable, she is patient and compassionate as well. These qualities are important in her field, since she must frequently encounter families in distress, families who, already reeling from the loss of a loved one, then have to deal with financial issues that tend to bring out the best and the worst in people. Juliet’s calmness and poise helped us to navigate these roiling waters."
