Easily done. We met, discussed our preferences, reviewed the result and finalized the documents. Estate planning is something people have a tendency to put off, but once begun, Suzanne got us through it quickly and professionally.

Suzanne is a true professional who I have had the pleasure to work with on numerous occasions. Handling an estate is a tedious process. Suzanne has a wonderful ability to listen, understand and manage the process with various family members. Clients who use her services for estate planning are well prepared and know that their wishes will be honored. I have worked with Suzanne to provide services in selling real estate. Coordinating the disposal of personal articles, providing clean up and staging of a home can be an emotional process; we have worked together to insure successful closure. My husband and I have also used her services personally for estate planning and very happy.

Ms. Benvenuto Simpson assisted with our long overdue will with patience and expertise. She is an expert in her field and guided us through all the steps to create a will that is clear and concise.

Ms. Simpson developed a family trust for my wife and me, and provided us with expert advice on the legal and family implications of such a document. We were very impressed with her knowledge of estate planning, trusts, federal and state tax laws, and advanced directives. Our trust was completed in a timely fashion and she was always responsive to our inquiries. We were so impressed with her level of service that we sent one of our children to her for legal advice and preparation of a will. We recommend Ms. Simpson with the highest level of enthusiasm.

I found Suzanne on line after the passing of my Father In Law and changes were needed for my mother's estate. Suzanne was most helpful and made us feel very comfortable during the entire process. My mother spoke highly of her often. My mother recently passed and Suzanne once again stepped up and helped us in settling the estate. She is amazing!!

Suzanne has been helping me with Power of Attorney and Personal Representative responsibilities for a good friend who died. It turned out to be a rather complicated estate and Suzanne was very patient and thorough in explaining the process. There were multiple beneficiaries, including one that was a bit difficult. Her interactions and responses to this person were impeccable, professional and polite. I was impressed with her graciousness in this situation. It's been very pleasant working with Suzanne and I would highly recommend her to others looking for this kind of legal guidance.

I lived in VA for 42 years and had worked with two attorneys in an Arlington firm. When I moved to Maryland I asked for a referral. It turned out Suzanne had worked with this firm previously. Not only did I received the same great care that I was used to from the firm in VA, but Suzanne recommended more items I needed to consider now that I was a resident of MD. She did a suburb job on our wills/trusts/etc. I would recommend her to anyone who is aged 60 and above who needs the services of an attorney practicing in the area of elder care. She's the best, and her fees are reasonable.

Suzanne helped me come up with a plan to pass on my assets to my two children. It was important to me that it was done in such a way that what they inherit will be theirs and can not be taken from them by a divorce, or unfortunate illness. I saw what happened with a friend's assets who passed away unexpectedly in her 50's and had children in their twenties surviving her. I wanted to have input now that some day I may not be in the frame of mind or even alive to give. She helped me come up with a plan that brings me peace of mind.

We had her make a Trust for us. It ended up becoming quite complicated in the end and she seems willing to go the extra mile for us. She was eve noble to accommodate our difficult schedule to get the paperwork processed before some of the deadlines that we cut too close. She's a miracle worker!

Suzanne is amazing. She has/was always been very helpful in patiently explaining the complex issues related to our Estate Planning process. She guided us swiftly and cheerfully through setting up a Living Trust and Will and gave us great peace of mind in doing so. Our situation had a variety of unique characteristics, that and all seemed to be a matter of course for her. What answers she didn't know off the top of her head, she returned back to us as soon as it was practical to do so; with thorough and well thought out answers. At times we were unable to convene with her but she kept us on track and well informed of where we stood, despite some long lapses in our availability to meet with her. I would highly recommend her in any of her areas of expertise and continue to refer other clients to her. We plan on returning to her for future counsel in other matters. She is the perfect balance of an accessible, affable Lawyer combined with exceedingly professional expertise.
