Outstanding Attorney
I hired Deanna Durbin after almost hiring another highly rated attorney....he did not return calls...I have dealt with attorneys over 40 years, this is one of the kindest, most professional, and reasonably priced attorneys I have ever dealt with. I am out of town and she makes it easy with e-mails, texts, and phone calls.

The BEST! Extremely knowledgable and well-informed in the probate/estate process.
Deanna was professional, compassionate and identified with my situation from the start. Deanna was exceptional in handling my mother's affairs. When my mother had passed away, I needed someone I could trust to finalize my mother's assets while living out-of-state. Fortunately, I selected wise!!! Deanna continually kept me informed on the progress and responded promptly when needed. Again, living out-of-state I appreciated the loyalty, sense of urgency, continual follow ups and compassion that she exhibited from day one. Deanna's efficiency and know-how had taken a huge burden from me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Ms. Durbin is an outstanding attorney in every respect.
I hired Deanna to assist my Uncle with a probate matter in Akron. My Uncle and I were very impressed with how efficient and knowledgable she was. She has excellent communication skills and she always took the time to update us by email or by phone. We are in Hawaii so we are so glad we could find someone we could trust from so far away. I would highly recommend Deanna!
