Beyond Excellent
Carla provided an excellent consultation for our family regarding elder guardianship proceedings and all it entails. This was our first experience with an attorney, and she provided instant action items we could take on our own without having to retain legal services. I never expected an attorney to actively encourage the least litigious course of action possible, but Carla’s heart is to truly honor elders by finding the best possible outcome for both their care and the family’s peace of mind. Carla helped our family navigate a potential crisis in the least intrusive manner possible. I cannot explain the immediate lifting of what was becoming an incredible weight on our shoulders. In one consultation, she gave us renewed hope. We are forever grateful, and would not hesitate to retain Carla if there is a need.

Experienced, Knowledgable, Kind and Compassionate
We were seeking an attorney to assist us with the unexpected task of Guardianship for our daughter nearing eighteen. A rare genetic disorder resulted in some mild intellectual disabilities for our daughter and forced us to seek protection for us in her affairs. We were clueless on the impacts and requirements not to mention quite emotional about the process. Carla kindly guided us through our options and made recommendations to fit our situation. She took into account our needs, financial concerns and was courteous in keeping our daughter as the priority. Carla and her team kept the process moving smoothly and quickly. When it was time for Carla to meet our daughter she made her feel comfortable and even followed up with a staff birthday card for her. The experience was not one we anticipated but were thankful to have Carla lead us through to completion. We would recommend her services and will seek her counsel again in the future.

Creating a Family Trust
After putting off the many tough decisions for so many years, I am glad that when I finally bit the bullet, Carla was there. At the ready, willing and able to get us through what we thought would be overwhelming. Instead, she and the Berg-Bryant staff, broke it down, answering our questions, providing solutions for all of our concerns. Carla turned my trepidations into a memorable experience...in spite of a Pandemic!

Personalized, Trustworthy Representation
As a recent widow, with no children and a high risk patient, facing upcoming surgery, I needed to put my affairs in order. A new friend had recommended the Berg - Bryant Elder Law Practice. Being medically home bound, arrangements were made and I met CARLA TRINCA-CONLEY, a joyously spirited young lady., with a great sense of humanity and kindness. Accompanied by her wonderful assistant GRAY, a delightful young gentleman who is quite accomplished and as is CARLA, quite genuine. This law team made complicated issues easy to understand. They saw to it my final wishes were documented as I wanted them to be and that I was reassured of its protection and execution. I was made to feel as a client should feel. Respected and heard. And cared about after the bill was paid. I feel a true fondness for CARLA, GRAY, JOANNE and LIZ in the office as well. Sincerely. I highly recommend this magnificent young attorney CARLA TRINCA-CONLEY.

Caring, Considerate and Kind
The entire team was warm, kind and knowledgable in helping me navigate through unknown territory while managing my mom's last wishes. They were quick to respond, always offering sound advice and doing so in a manner that made me feel as if they truly cared about my well being while understanding I was still grieving my Mom's passing. I highly recommend their services!

An attorney-angel
An attorney/angel—that’s what we found in our lawyer Carla Trinca-Conley. I had just lost my mom and now I faced huge expenses to probate her will, even though there was nothing in her estate. But thanks to Carla and the team at Berg Bryant Elder Law Group, we pulled together all the documents needed to allow only a simple filing of the will, which Carla had already taken care of by the day of our appointment! Instead of a Hail Mary, we got a Hail Carla! Bless her and all the staff at the law group that has served us meticulously since 2009.

Very Helpful!
Carla was very good at explaining the details of a will to my elderly father. She answered all of our questions and my father was very pleased with what she was able to do for us. She also made me aware of other issues that I need to address to protect my father's assets. I highly recommend her!

What a blessing!
We are so grateful to Carla for helping us at a very challenging time. Like so many, we did not get our legal documents in order until a crisis happened in our lives. Carla was able to prepare, explain and execute all of the documents very quickly. She is an excellent communicator and made the process easy. I will recommend her to anyone who asks, without hesitation. She has been a blessing to us and I am grateful to her and all of the staff who made our visit so positive and pleasant.

An answer to a prayer!
Carla was the answer to our prayers. She demonstrated amazing patience with our 91 year old aunt as she thoroughly explained options to all of us. She is a great listener! Carla took the time to also guide us through the next steps after we had the executed documents. We were completely overwhelmed when we arrived. We left feeling very encouraged and clear about next steps.

Client
Carla could not have been a better blend of professional and personal for taking care of the affairs of my older brother. She very patiently and competently answered both my questions and my older brother's questions, as we updated his estate papers and various Powers of Attorney. She took care of the matters in a very timlely fashion, with great grace. She easily gained the confidence of my brother, which made the whole process go more smoothly, with an end result that pleased all of us. We could not be happier!

My hero!
I was under an extremely tight time constraint in getting my mother's legal documents completed, as I am visiting from out of town. I was able to get an appointment with Carla in two days time. She and Debbie came to the nursing facility where Mom is located and very patiently explained each aspect of each form so that we could all understand it. She was an answer to prayer!
