Thanks for the guidance and excellent customer service!
We worked with John and his staff to put together a comprehensive plan for our estate. We left his office with our paperwork updated, beneficiaries in place, confidence and peace of mind. Our paperwork is all in one place, easy to understand and well organized. John and his family also contribute to our community in many ways. Thank you!

Creation of Revocable Trust(s)
John and his team carefully guided us through the creation of estate planning for my wife and I and my parents through the creation of revocable trust(s). I can't emphasize enough the care and support we received through this process and would HIGHLY recommend John to anyone who is considering the same.

Best Attorney
I have been fortunate to have met and hired Mr. Robbert in the 1980s when living in Maryland. When I moved to Delaware, I again hired him to revise some legal documents. He has always been very friendly, professional and thorough an given me great advice.

John F. Robbert
John Robbert developed my family trust more than 20 years ago before my husband's death. He has answered countless questions and handled changes and actions required since. He offers seminars to keep clients informed about changes in the law. I would recommend him unconditionally.

Very happy with my selection of John Robbert.
I was referred to John by my Financial Planner & the daughter of a friend who had passed. He is very easy to talk with & had all of the answers to my questions. My will/trust was completed in short time for what I consider a reasonable fee. No regrets. Would do it again.

15 years of great service and peace of mind
Our estate planning relationship with John Robbert goes back to July of 2005. We regularly attend his free presentations and, from the attendees at those presentations, we are not unique in having a long-term relationship with him. Over the years, our estate planning goals, as well as the environment where our planning documents will be executed, have changed. John has always been there to answer our questions and update our plans, to ensure our goals are met and that our documents are current with the environment where the plans will be executed. John provides the complete package for estate planning. From establishing our goals, creating and maintaining the plan to realize those goals, and implementing the structures to establishing our trusts. John did all the work in transferring our assets into the trust. Perhaps the nicest thing about working with John is the confidence and peace of mind created when working with someone so easy to talk to and who understands and is current on current practices related to estate planning. We are confident that when the time comes, those who will benefit from our planning will achieve full realization of our estate planning goals. We appreciate our experiences with John and highly recommend him and his organization to anyone looking for estate planning assistance.

Got me the money!
John got me all the VA money I didn't even know I was entitled to! I don't know where I would be without it.
