Great service
We needed to have our estate plan updated and we were referred to Mr. Walny. He and his firm are just fabulous to deal with. He explained everything to us in a manner that was extremely easy to understand. I am confident that we are set up perfectly for the future.

Review for Eido M. Walny
We were looking for an estate planning lawyer not knowing if we needed one or not. Eido was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us in layman's terms, sometimes more than once. He took his time to make sure we totally understood every option available to us and gave us his professionally opinion but did not make us feel pressured to choose one or the other. A very down to earth man. We really enjoyed working with Eido.

Very professional and knows his craft
Honest and willing to assist. We know attorney fees can be overwhelming for the average consumer so despite me being low on cash Eido didn't act all funny with me he was still helpful ans answered all my question. I wish I was in a better position to obtain him. HE STILL GETS 5 STARS for his efforts

Top notch attorney
We used Eido to do our estate plan. He was patient, knowledgeable, and very capable. He made this process really easy for my husband and me. We really appreciated that his services were charged as a flat rate and that he told us what the fee would be upfront. He's not cheap, but he's not expensive either. He's fair. We really enjoyed working with him and recommend him highly.

Review for Eido Walny
Eido Walny is everything one could ask for from an attorney. He is extremely competent yet open minded, trustworthy, and a great listener. He would be an asset to anyone in need of estate planning.

Great estate planner
Eido is a top notch estate attorney. He made the process exceptionally easy for my wife and I. We understood the documents we needed and know that as the situation changes we'll have a proactive attorney who will guide us.

Incredible customer service coupled with excellent expertise
Eido is not only the most responsive attorney I have ever worked with, but probably the most responsive vendor on my team. Eido consistently gives me solid advice from a couple of perspectives, and is not afraid to utilize his network when a question is outside of his area of expertise. He is personable, and can communicate complex concepts in clear concise terms. I regularly recommend and refer business to Eido and I have received nothing but good feedback from those I have referred. Mr. Walny is a valued and trusted member of my team and I look forward to working with him long into the future.
