She believes that there is no substitute for proper legal planning to protect loved ones.

Incredibly knowledgeable
Hello my name is Alma and I am very excited to write this review for the newly re-branded IBIS; the law firm of Rebecca Yingst Price. For many years I procrastinated about updating my estate plan, and this was something I found to be very daunting and stress producing. Rebecca was referred to me by a friend and one day i decided to give her office a call to schedule and appointment. Immediately, upon placing the call i found her staff to be extremely thoughtful and sensitive to my estate planning goals. After our initial consultation and some subsequent homework assignments I found Rebecca to be extremely prepared for our first official meeting. Rebecca explained to me what I should expect to occur moving forward, and did not hesitate to offer her professional opinion where she felt necessary. Rebecca was able to bring important matters to my attention i never thought to ask, which I found to be extremely valuable. Her number one goal was to to create an estate plan that was in the best interest for me and my family. My final estate planning documents were presented to me in a beautiful easy to read format, which explained every aspect of the estate plan, along with thorough instructions on how to navigate on your own moving forward. Lastly, but most important I have been assured that Rebecca (IBIS) and her staff are just a phone call away which has been already proven. I HIGHLY recommend Rebecca for estate planning needs.

Professional, Thorough and Timely
We recently hired Becky to prepare our estate documents for our growing family. She was very thorough in her due diligence and made sure we had all the appropriate documents drafted. She explained everything very clearly and answered all of our questions. She made what can be a very complex topic seem easy. She, and her team, were very responsive and professional. It was a pleasure working with her and I would definitely use her again.

We don't work with lawyers often and Becky and her team made the process easy and clear for us. We're really glad we started the estate planning process and chose Becky to help us out. Quick to reply, personable, and expert knowledge on the topic.

Highly qualified, professional, personable!
I can't say enough about Rebbeca and her staff, very responsive from initial phone calls to follow up emails. I felt immediately comfortable with her level of experience and professionalism. I always felt my privacy was respected and valued. I was most impressed that she took the time to understand me as a person, educate me through the decision making process and walk me through every step. She is empathetic, educated and values her client relationship. Her team executed the job efficiently and thoroughly. I was very pleased and would highly recommend her for your needs.

Client
I retained Ms. Price to prepare a full set of estate planning documents, including trust, will and powers of attorney. She was understanding about the time-sensitivity of my situation and more than accommodated all of my needs. She was forward-thinking, in that her planning considers possible outcomes I myself could not have imagined. The documents were well-executed in a timely manner. Ms. Price is a highly skilled, experienced and senior member of the bar. She and all of her employees conduct themselves with the utmost professionalism, respect and kindness. I strongly recommend Rebecca Yingst Prince for her estate planning services.

Rebecca (Becky) Price review of Adoption and Will
I originally hired Rebecca (Becky) Price to provide legal guidance and leadership with the adoption of my stepdaughter in March of 2020. I was hoping to complete the process by the end of the year, even with a newly discovered pandemic spreading across the country. Becky was very flexible with meetings, provided expert guidance, and most importantly is an excellent communicator (with great patience). I am a very driven, goals-oriented customer, and Becky (and her staff) kept up with every one of my requests, questions, and anxieties. The bottom line is this..........Becky was an excellent executioner of my plan to adopt my daughter and she completed the process for us 4 months earlier than we expected. I have also utilized Becky's expertise to create and register wills for my wife and I, as well as the appropriate trusts for our daughter. I would be remise if I did not mention that the support team that works with Becky was incredibly responsive to my questions, requested expectations, and "due dates". My wife and I feel so fortunate to have picked Becky out of the stack of researched lawyers when we needed legal services. Hopefully, this review will assist others in picking the correct lawyer for their legal needs.

Makes it so easy!
I found Rebecca via the Women in Cleveland Facebook group after searching the thread for estate planning lawyers and she has been nothing short of wonderful. Before making any decisions to use her services you meet via zoom to ensure you are both aligned in what you need and what she offers. Once you decide to work together she takes what you need completed and runs with it -which as a busy professional and parent I greatly appreciate! She is very prompt and professional and thorough and provides reminders along the way which is always helpful. I used her services for my personal needs as well as my business needs. I would highly recommend using Rebecca and I'm excited to have someone with estate planning and real estate expertise I can call on should any questions arise in the future.

Easy to understand and to the point
Rebecca makes it clear and easy as to understand what you're about to go through in Probate Court. I felt very at ease and informed in our discussions about court procedures. Trusted is another word that would used to describe our relationship. I will recommend her to all I know in greater Cleveland area. Time and money will spent.

Could not have done it without her
Rebecca came into my life at just the right time. I needed a lawyer who was compassionate and understanding. I have a difficult family situation wherein the use of a trust to help pay expenses was necessary. Rebecca cared very much about the welfare of my family member, walked us through the necessary steps and in the end we prevailed. I am so grateful to her for all her help and expertise. I highly recommend her!

Great Advisor
I was referred to Rebecca (Becky) by my law firm in Alabama to handle my late father's legal affairs. He was a resident of Ohio. Long distance was not a problem at all. From the first time I spoke with her over the phone, she made me feel like I had friend in my corner that new Ohio law and wanted to know everything about my case. Her communication was excellent. I never had to wonder the status of my case. She courtesy copied me on every correspondence and when necessary, picked up the phone to talk through situations and advise me of my legal rights. My father and I were very close and his passing was still painful at the time. I think she understood that by how sensitive she handled our communication even advising me on some tough emotional decisions I had to make. She informed me of aspects of my case that I wouldn't have known otherwise because of the difference in laws between states. I didn't even know what questions to ask at times. I would definitely retain her again. She is a blessing to me and my family.

Set up LLC
Rebecca went through several scenarios of the various business options, discussing the positives and negatives of each based upon my personal goals and background. She helped me successfully navigate the legal and tax entanglements. I am now a full time consultant for a technical society and have utilized her skills on a number of occasions professionally. I have already recommended her services to a couple of my acquaintances.

Above and Beyond!
Rebecca Price was hired by myself and sister to help us with receiving benefits from an estate of a deceased cousin. Rebecca went above and beyond her job by giving us an explanation of every possible scenario that could arise. She gave us her honest opinion on the situation and allowed us time to mull over all options. On top of that my sister and I live in Pennsylvania so we were not familiar with Ohio in any way. When it came time to make a visit to Ohio she did not hesitate to give us recommendations of things to visit in the area! She made a difficult and complicated situation 100 times easier! I cannot thank her enough for not only her professionalism but her kindness!
