Great work for our trust, will and advance directive.
Great experience! Sarah helped us set up a family trust, living will, and advance directive. We did everything by email, which made things fast and efficient. She answered all our questions thoroughly and to our satisfaction.

Estate Planning
Our family was paired with Sarah through an employer-sponsored legal plan. She informed us of new and updated guidance for estate planning since our last documents were completed. She was sensitive to our needs and timely in responding to requests. Thank you Sarah and team!

Excellent and quick service
I was paired with Sarah through my legal insurance benefits plan through work and I could not have been happier. She was responsive and helped me understand my best estate planning options and quickly completed and finalized the documents. I highly recommend Sarah and her staff.

Estate planning - Professional, efficient, thorough and organized
I would highly recommend Sarah for estate planning services. Nobody wants to do this, but she made it easy and stress free. She answered all our questions, she was clear and organized, we didn't feel rushed, and her responses to our emails were thoughtful and detailed. We appreciate her help with this, and would recommend her highly.

Exceptional Service, Highly Recommended
I would absolutely recommend Sarah and her team for your Estate Planning needs! I was looking to create my documents around estate planning. Sarah and her team are extremely personable and friendly. They are happy to walk you through the different documents and setup based on your situation. They were able to speak with me and determine which is the best approach for my needs. The documents were created and sent quickly. She also walked me through what the post-process was and all the different options I had available to me to ensure I was doing it correctly. I was able to have some edits made and within a few weeks I was all set! I could not believe how easy and streamlined the process was. Sarah and her team answered all my questions promptly. I had a wonderful working with Sarah and her team and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Estate Planning
Sarah was very attentive and flexible. We decided to do estate planning after the birth of our second child and she was very patient, answered all of our questions (multiple times). We were also able to do everything online and over zoom, which made it so much easier during the public health emergency. I highly recommend her and her firm.

Professional and Easy for our Estate Planning
We worked with Sarah on our family's first estate plan (wills and power of attorneys for me and my husband). Sarah made it so easy for us to do this entirely remotely! Everything was clear and simple from the beginning and the process was flawless. I highly recommend Sarah and her team.

Efficient Estate Planning
I found Sarah through the Connecting Rainbows directory which connects LGBTQ+ families to affirming attorneys who are equipped to handle our unique family needs. Sarah made the process very easy and straightforward for us to have our wills, power of attorney and advanced directives in place to supplement our rights as a legally married couple should the rights given in our marriage license change in the future. We plan to come back for help with second parent adoption as well.

Estate planning made easy
I was nervous to begin the Estate Planning process b/c it's a topic I knew little about. Luckily we found Sarah who made the process easy and stress-free. She was thorough in her responses to my questions and a pleasure to work with. I would 100% recommend her to anyone interested in beginning this important process.
