  1. Keep legal control in the family
  2. Protect your savings and property from lawsuits
  3. Give what you have, the way you want at the least possible cost

Probate attorney Jacqueline R. Bowden Gold strives to work with the Personal Representative (PR) and Trustee in the most cost-effective way.

GODSENT!!!
I had a very complicated probate involving a home. It was a very sensitive and emotional time for me. Jackie was extremely patient and understanding. She fought long and hard and did not give in. Jackie worked all hours of the day and always responded to my calls and emails. Jackie treated me as a friend and not just a client which helped so much during the process. Thank you Jackie!!! I look forward to working with you again in the near future! I will recommend Jackie to all my friends and family!

A Beyond Special Person and Outstanding Attorney!
I am so grateful to have been referred to Jacqueline R. Bowden Gold, Esq. for estate planning which was completed in April, 2022. While it took awhile for me to write this review, I felt I needed to let others know about Ms. Bowden Gold cause as her name says, she is gold! Jackie possesses the unique combination of qualities that are often a rarity to find. She is not only an extremely professional, competent, knowledgeable, ethical, trustworthy attorney with impeccable communication skills, but she is also a beautiful person who conveys sincere compassion, kindness, integrity & respect. She made me feel like I was her only client, put me at ease during a most difficult time in my life. She responded to all my questions and concerns in a timely manner & I can’t thank her enough except to say how she touched my life in such an important, special meaningful way! I always felt she would go the extra mile and possessed such high moral and ethical standards for herself that was displayed in the work she did for me. She prepared a most comprehensive, impressive estate planning portfolio and was even available to answer questions from my family members. I would highly recommend Ms. Bowden Gold and, in fact, have and they also raved about her. Quite frankly, I don’t know how she does all she does!! But she does and I thank her for all her help and guidance!

Great choice for my Estate planning
I contacted Ms. Bowden to do Estate planning for my family. Ms. Bowden was very thorough and took the time to explain everything in a way that was easy to understand. She provided excellent advice and answered every question I had. I was in contact with Ms. Bowden on numerous occasions after the initial consultation to get guidance and clarification, she was always prompt in responding and eager to help. On the day we met to sign our documents, Ms. Bowden went through the whole document and explained every aspect of it to my wife and I answering every question we had along the way. Estate planning is a very serious matter and it helps having someone who is patient and understanding to get you through it. We had a great experience with Ms. Bowden which is why I would highly recommend her to anyone needing and attorney for their Estate planning

Will and Power of Attorney Documents
Jackie was excellent in helping us get my Father-In-Law's documents created. We live out of state and needed a Florida attorney to create his Will and POA for him in Fl. Jackie was able to accommodate us in a very timely manner. It was great working with Jackie.

Jacqueline R. Bowden Gold Review
Jacqueline R. Bowden Gold is an excellent Estate Attorney. We hired her to provide Estate Documents for our mother, who is aging and needed a plan that was specific, customized to her desires, and amendable as life changes. Jacqueline provided what we asked for and more. She listened very intently, and provided “what if” scenarios based on her knowledge, which were very beneficial in helping us decide from a choice of various estate documents. We are happy with the service we received and highly recommend her.

Outstanding experience with Jacqueline R. Bowden Gold
Jacqueline Bowden Gold at the offices of Rarick & Beskin came highly recommended to us by a few friends, so we contacted her regarding some personal legal items. Jacqueline and her staff were incredible! We had various legal matters to work through and they made us feel valued, heard, and most importantly, conducted business with kindness and integrity. They stayed in-touch and kept us updated at all times. It's not often that a company truly steps up to provide a client with Plus 1 service, but Jacqueline did just that. Rarick & Beskin is very lucky to have Jacqueline on their team! Thank you again for everything you had done for me and my family. We appreciate you!

Excelente Abogada muy profesional y bilingue
Agradezco infinitamente a Jacqueline Bowden Gold y su equipo de trabajo por aconsejar y ayudarme hacer mi testamento. Las primeras consultas se hizo atravez de zoom virtual lo que ayudo grandemente no salir de casa por consecuencia de la pandemia. Tambien ella y su equipo hablan espanol lo que fue de mucha ayuda a entender el procedimiento y el documento. Si usted esta buscando por algun abogado que le tramita el testamento y otros documentos Yo recomiendo a Jaqueline por su etica, profesionalismo y excelente actitud de ayuda.

Inmejorable atención legal
Llegué a la consulta con Jacqueline luego de revisar sus antecedentes y otros comentarios por Internet, los cuales eran todos buenos. Y la verdad que todos tenían razón. Ella trató nuestro caso, originado en la Argentina, con una dedicación, transparencia y habilidad que nunca pareció que estábamos a miles de kilómetros y tratando con otro sistema legal. Fue nuestra mejor decisión contratarla para que resolviera cuestiones de derecho familiar en USA que habían comenzado lamentablemente con la muerte de un familiar directo. Su español, para aquellos que no dominan el idioma inglés, tanto escrito como hablado, es excelente. Los tiempos y los pasos que fueron ocurriendo habían sido previamente preanunciados por ella, por lo que nunca sentimos que nuestro caso podía no ocurrir tal como nos lo había anticipado. Recomiendo fuertemente su contratación ante situaciones del derecho de familia en USA.

Probate
We can't say enough about the manner in which Jacqueline handled our case. She explained the process and guided us through the necessary steps to handle the Probate case. All of the involved parties were out of the area and also during the pandemic, not a simple or normal situation. Jacqueline has a great work ethic, stayed on mark with our needs and helped us whenever we requested. Would highly recommend Jacqueline to any of our friends or family.

Excellent Attorney Experience
I very seldom post reviews but I felt that my experiebce working with Jacqueline, her paralegal Christy and her firm could prove helpful to others looking for an attorney. I will preface my next comments by saying that I do not live in Florida and had been referred to them by another attorney out of state. Not knowing what to expect, I was very impressed with the level of assistance and excellent legal guidance they provided. When I reached out in January with a time critical need to move some property into an existing trust - Jacqueline and Christy got it done in an expedited manner - exactly what I needed. When I reached out again for some additional real estate transactions after my Mom passed, both responded exactly as before with the same level of attention and detail oriented completion. They set the tone early on of professionalism, responsiveness and excellence along with considerable patience with my numerous questions. I would highly recommend Jacqueline and firm for your legal needs!
