Very Pleased!
Brian's the best! He made something that should be depressing (death, taxes, wills, etc) and made it enjoyable. I feel at ease knowing Brian took care of me and my family.

Testimonial for Brian J. Deaver, II, Esq.
December 15, 2017 Brian Deaver has earned my trust and respect by his excellent work in creating my Estate Plan which includes the Revocable Living Trust, Power of Attorney and Advanced Medical Directive. Brian Deaver has the demeanor and all the attributes of a dedicated professional and I believe his in-depth knowledge and work ethic will serve you well. I highly recommend you contact Brain Deaver to discuss your Estate Plan. I appreciate Brian Deaver's offer to meet with my family (which I accepted) to review my Estate Plan and develop a working relationship with my Successor Trustee. Brian Deaver is committed to excellence and I am confident you will enjoy working with him. Sincerely.

Extremely efficient
My wife and I only had to meet with Brian two times. Once to go over all of the details of our RLT and gun trust and the other to sign all of the paperwork. Most of the work came from funding the trust when we had to go to our banks and contact our financial institutions. I will remember the saying we made the box now you have to fill it. Having all of our assets shielded from taxation/probate will save our family much more than we spent not to mention the expedited process compared to probate. I am completely satisfied and would highly recommend Brian to anyone that has children or is planning to have children.

Thank you Brian J. Deaver II
I attended a Estate Planning Seminar In Pikesville, MD some months ago. Brian was the presenting attorney there. I listened to his presentation and learned a lot. So much so that I felt confident making an appt to meet with Brian about a trust for my husband and I. We own three properties, 401K’s, IRA’s, bank accounts etc. and all of that stuff now is in the trust and will avoid probate. Working with Brian was a painless process. He is incredibly kind and patient with questions. He always took the time to explain to me anything I asked, I never felt rushed. Thank you, Brian. I’m happy to give you this review.

Very Smooth Experience Implementing a Living Trust
Brian was attentive, thorough and highly competent. I hired Brian to update my will, as well as implement a power of attorney, a medical directive, and a revokable living trust. He also provided tremendous support in assisting me in funding the trust, working with my banks and credit unions to ensure everything was completed properly. Brian is very organized and completed the entire process very quickly. When completed, he presented me with all of my documents in a very organized and professional binder. Brian's legal advise was insightful; he has tremendous passion about estate planning, and provides excellent customer service. I would highly recommend hiring Brian for your estate planning needs.
