DE-lightful Counse
Ms. Toga helped me and my partner put together an estate plan. She was articulate, graceful, insightful and "smartful." I can't speak highly enough for her help, I would also add helpful to the list in the prior sentence.

Real Estate Transaction
Linda is beyond professional and to the point. My hope for any legal transaction is that it is quick and smooth; and this is what you get with her help. Her attention to detail is phenomenal. I have dealt with many attorney's and very rarely do you come across someone who has your true interest at heart. I wish I had met her earlier. Thank you, Linda!! I will be sure to use you for future business.

Successful house closing
I had the pleasure of retaining Linda for a house closing. The sale turned out to be more complicated than anyone expected, with outstanding liens and botched foreclosure proceedings. But Linda was always on top of things and gave sound and valuable advice through out the entire process.

Excellent Lawyer
We attended several estate planning seminars and finally choose Linda Toga to prepare our Will and other documents. She explained things clearly and do not push us to purchase the service that we don't need. I am grateful for her sound advice and very happy about her work.

Estate Planning and Health Care Documents
I retained Linda Toga to prepare my Will, Power of Attorney and other health care documents. I was impressed by her expertise. She asked me all the right questions to make sure the documents reflected what I wanted.

Excellent estate planning
We recently engaged Linda to assist us with estate planning for my parents. My sister and I live out of state and had only 1 day available to meet with Linda. To our amazement, she was able to clear her schedule to asssit us with some items that were of an urgent nature. She has a great ability to communicate with our elderly parents and make them feel comfortable while planning for their estate. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs assistance in this area.

Accessible and Knowledgeable
I asked Linda to help me with my Estate Planning two years ago. Recently I asked for help once again because I wanted to make some changes. She has always provided excellent service and is a very knowledgeable professional. Linda keeps you informed of her progress. I have recommended Linda to many friends and family members. You can always reach her directly without giving your message to a third party.

A Rare Find
I was referred to Linda M. Toga by my divorce attorney. I had been notified that there were matters left unattended by my deceased ex-husband that needed to be handled and I would need an attorney that specialized in Estates to clarify things, help me through the process and deal with his Estate attorney on my behalf. Since it took me seven years to finally get divorced, you can imagine the anguish of having to go through more, thinking that it was finally over and it wasn't. My initial call to Linda put me at ease. I found her to be "matter of fact", "no nonsense", "thorough", "factual" and sincere. She tells it like it is, keeps you informed of her progress on your behalf, is extremely knowledgeable, organized and is a distinguished, dignified representative for her clients. Needless to say, she was able to close my account in a few months. She made what would have been a painful and arduous ordeal, bearable. Thank you Linda, for those of us who don't have anyone to turn to.....its comforting to know we can count on your honesty. You truly are "A Rare Find"! Signed, A very grateful client!

Highly Recommend Services of the law office of Linda Toga
We had need of legal documents regarding permission for minors to travel with us to Florida for our daughter's Sweet 16 trip. Hardly a huge job for an attorney, but Ms. Toga provided the necessary papers as well as the services of her office for the signing and notarizing of documents. She was in constant communication via email until all was in order for our trip. We highly recommend Linda Toga to anyone searching for a professional, courteous attorney who provides top notch legal services.

She is a "10"!
Linda Toga gets my top-rating for excellence! I hired her on high referral 10 years ago ad haven't been disappointed for a second. I enjoy the professional, personalized and "friendly" service. I have a general suspicion about lawyers as I work in the criminal justice system, but her I trust, as over the years she has consistently provided outstanding service. My elderly father needed all that paperwork, as well as estate paperwork, including sale/closing of his home as he entered assisted living.; she even sensitively handled a family dispute. Every detail was attended to and all the while she updated me in language I understood. Linda's knowledge and resources seem vast. I had previously used another firm, and although the lawyer was nice, his firm was large and I felt lost as another cog in the machinery. She is a "10"!

Terrifically Diligent
Linda Toga impressed me when she gave an informative talk at Stony Brook University; based on her gentle and professional demeanor, data disseminated, Q&A session and handouts, I knew she could fulfill my "elder care" needs. In the privacy her office, she patiently listened to me, made valuable suggestions, and devised a plan of action that ultimately resulted in my having documents for an updated Will, a Health Care Proxy and Power of Attorney. I am confident and delighted to have LindaTonga as my lawyer. I have recommended her to others and they are very satisfied as well.

Highly Recommend Linda Toga
We came to Linda on the recommendation of a good friend. After putting off making new wills for many years, Linda made the whole process easy. She explained all the things we needed to address like living wills, health care proxy's and power of attorney in addition to our wills. We would highly recommend her..

Excellent Lawyer
Linda has done a excellent job with my legal case. She was very attentive in learning about what my problems were and provided excellent advise and legal counsel what needed to be done. She was right on top on responding to the opposing party. Linda researched my matter and provided firm legal representation in replying and dealing with the opposing party. She has kept on top of my case which I expected to take an extended lengh of time and has kept me informed as needed. I highly recommnd Linda for legal counsel and advise.

Knowledgeable, Smart, Conscientious Lawyer
Linda Toga was helpful, knowledgeable, and very efficient in helping me settle my husband's estate and in answering any questions which arose during the process. I have been able to call and consult with her on several different matters and she has always been professional and informative. I highly recommend her (and I have) to others.

Top notch attorney without all the overhead of a big office!
Linda is fantastic! I was first attracted to her because she offered information on her web site. After speaking with her I discovered she was very knowledgeable, accommodating, flexible and efficient. We had her do some legal work for my elderly mother and our house title and it was executed flawlessly. Everything took place just as she said it would and she was very warm and supportive during the entire process. We are planning on using her again for our own estate planning just as soon as we can figure out our best strategy - I know she will provide excellent service at a fair price - and I won't be subsidizing someone's high-end Garden City office rent and support staff. Too bad she can't clone herself!
