Estate Planning
My wife and I used David for estate planning for our 2 young children and we are very happy that we did. He took estate planning and other complex topics and made them easy to understand. He was patient with our questions but also very thoughtful on how to help us with some of our unique circumstances. Not only that but as other questions have come up he has made himself available and willing to answer those as well. I have recommended David to a number of people and they all have had a similar outstanding experience. David prides himself on his professionalism and it shows in his work and interactions.

Strong recommendation as an estate lawyer
My wife and I had an estate plan drawn up by another lawyer about 8 years ago. When it was time to update it, our original lawyer had retired so we need to find a new lawyer. This site was actually one of several source we used to select David. It has turned out to be a wise decision as David has proved to be very proficient in the area of estate planning with a wealth of experience to draw on. I attribute this in large part because he has a sincere passion for this area of law and interest in providing his client the highest levels of satisfaction. He certainly made the process as easy as possible. Although our original plan was sufficient, there were items that David addressed in our updated version that will definitely add value. We are grateful for those who left their reviews and are happy to add our feedback as well.

Fellow Attorney And Satisfied Client
I have known David for almost 15 years. He is exceptionally bright, kind, and the most exceptional wills/estates/probate attorney I know. Before deploying to Afghanistan as a U.S. Marine I turned to David for assistance with my will. David walked us through every step and prepared my will so that my family and I could have peace of mind while I was gone. Now, as a fellow attorney - I refer any of my clients who need estate planning or probate assistance and I have the confidence of knowing that each and every one of the will be well taken care of. If you are searching for an attorney to plan your estate, look no further. He is a focused practitioner with an exceptional knowledge of estate planning matters . I highly recommend David without reservation for all of your estate planning needs.

A firm I can always count on
David Mammel has been my business and estate planning attorney for quite a few years. He is easy to work with and very thorough in his work. He probes issues that need to be addressed and handles all of the details necessary. I especially like the plain way he speaks so I can understand the sometimes confusing legal issues involved in business and estate planning issues. But more importantly, his high level of integrity is what has me continue to work with him.

Estate Planning
David helped us put together our Estate Plan Documents. He was very patient with us even though we asked him to explain certain terms and concepts more than once. His guidance made a difficult process much easier and we were pleased with the final documents. We even got a compliment from a financial representative who received a copy of the Certificate of Trust, he said the document was very thorough and well organized. We felt the same but it was nice to hear our thoughts confirmed by someone who has experience with such documents.

Review of David Mammel
When circumstances in my life changed David was able to navigate the confusing issues and make them understandable to me. He spoke plainly so I knew what was actually being conveyed in my estate plan. He asked a lot of questions to make sure I was being covered the way I wanted to be covered. And I actually changed some areas in my original plan because of the probing questions David asked so my wishes would be carried out exactly as I wanted. His high level of integrity made it easy to work with him.
