David Folkenflik is a top notch professional who helped me administer my Auntie's estate. There were 10 surviving beneficiaries, several of whom have dropped out of the mainstream. I was grateful for his tenacitiy and his knowledge of estate matters. My Auntie died on Januuary 22, today, October 1, I have received the Final Dischage from the Courts. I think that is a testamony to David's exceptional attention to detail and outstanding ability to keep the details moving forward.

David is a very competent attorney who knows the system well and provides excellent advice on how to proceed and deal with the ups and downs of a case. I felt that he did a good job of explaining things and of keeping me informed of status and progress as it occurred. I feel his fees were reasonable, and that he clearly explained them up front. There were no unexpected surprises along the way. He was always very friendly and happy to answer my questions no matter how seemingly inconsequential. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is need of an attorney for the types of law he engages in.

I have known Dave for a very long time, and have referred many family and friends to him for legal advice on car accidents as well as wills, and POA, etc. My boyfriend and I were recently in a car accident and immediately turned to Dave for advice. He was empathetic, knowledgeable and prompt with his communication with us. He directed us to quality medical care while he carefully navigated the legal maze we suddenly found ourselves in. I would reccomend David Folkenflik and his team to anyone in need of expert and competent legal advice.

I have known David since the early 90’s and have used David at various times through the years to prepare and/or update my will, living will, power of attorney and set up a trust for my child. I have also called or emailed him over the years with various legal questions. He does not hesitate to refer colleagues if he does not practice in the area of law where I need information. He is very professional and trustworthy. I can highly recommend him.

David was great to work with helping me file probate with the courts on my father’s home after his death. He was extremely prompt in filing the necessary papers and continued to follow-up with the clerk. David kept me posted through the entire process via emails and phone calls. I was told by another attorney that it would take 6 months to complete the process but David got it accomplished in 3 weeks!

I am an area attorney and I always use the professional services of Dave Folkenflik when I have a settlement that has to go through Probate. Dave not only knows Estate Planning and Probate but he also practices in the area of personal injury law so he is uniquely qualified to assist me in getting settlement proceeds through probate in an efficient way. On top of that he is a consummate professional and is very good with clients.
