I met with Jeff and he helped me understand some confusing language in my parent's will, trust, and p.o.a. documents. He also provided free web resources for research into public documents and property deeds.
We also spoke about adult guardianship. Jeff seemed very knowledgeable in this area of law.

The thing that impresses me the most about Jeff is that he brings equal parts expertise and compassion to his work. He also helped us see that estate and medical planning is just as much about planning for life as it is about planning for the inevitable. That made it much easier to be clear headed and pragmatic about it. Thanks Jeff!

Jeff had prepared my will and did a good job at that, and I asked him to help me set up a non-profit for a volunteer project I am in charge of. We looked at different forms (corporation, LLC and association) to determine which fit my needs best. Jeff set up a non-profit association, wrote the bylaws and gave advice along the way. He did an excellent job.

I am impressed with Mr. Austin's thoughtful advice and answers to legal questions on Avvo. He has an in-depth understanding of the law and an ability to communicate legal concepts clearly and effectively. I endorse this lawyer!
