Especially empathic
I had severe addiction and mental health issues and obtained Gina as a legal guardian The crack cocaine had really damaged me though those have now vanished and I 've been crack free 4 8 y. and sober for 3 yrs.Gina put up with a lot of psychological abuse from my temporarily damaged psyche.The abusive language was embarrassing enough to review.One of the other reviews mentioned her empathy and I agree.I m convinced she realized I couldn't help some of it starting with the non stop talking and endless interrupting. I was not very kind and owe a portion of gratitude to her for having patience and Christian compassion so I can miraculously claim 3 years clean.I never would have tolerated my behavior.

Ms. Bevack has handled several estate planning and probate filing issues for me. She is very quick to respond to any inquiries. She has a wealth of knowledge in her fields of expertise. But most importantly, she is empathetic and caring to those she is helping.

Gina Bevack
Gina did an excellent job laying out our options and answering our legal questions. She was extremely professional and personable which made us feel very comfortable, and had a very strong knowledge of estate law. She was also very helpful providing us with a few different accounts who could help us with our tax questions.

Professional, provides a great value for the work done and an all over good person
Gina did wills and a trust for my husband and I. She is clearly very knowledgable in her type of law and so easy to work with. She explained the contents of our estate planning documents in a way that made it so easy to understand.

Gina Bevack Review
Gina is very professional and has indepth knowledge of trusts and living wills.Overall, we were very pleased with the work she did for us. She drafted separate living wills/trusts for my husband and I. The only problem we had is that when we went to put our assets into the trust (savings, checking accts) the bank would not allow a joint checking acct to be put into separate trusts. This created a problem for us. We now have separate accounts- which personally feels wrong as a married person. I don't believe she knew this would happen because when I called to discuss it she seemed surprised. In addition, it is a long tedious process to get all the joint accounts separated out. I would have paid extra to have her office handle all the paperwork involved in getting accts transferred into the trust but it wasn't an option.
