Dera helped review our 20 year old family trust and made several suggestions for updating legal language to help protect our family, assets, and future. We were very pleased with her professional, yet easy to talk to style. My husband appreciated her humor to ease stress of serious matters. We would highly recommend her for getting your estate in order.

Dera was an excellent lawyer. She went into detail explaining everything and allowed us to ask questions. Great personality and great smile! Would recommend her to anyone.

Ms. Johnsen-Tracy met with me to learn my aunt's special needs trust situation, met with my aunt and me another time then with me a third time and in less than two weeks had the project completed.

Dera listened to our wishes and wrote a plan for us that reflected our concerns and needs. My wife had problems with her mothers estate, which caused her family years of head aches, heart aches & steep legal bills. We feel our new wills / trusts will stand the test of time, and will be executed properly when the time comes. We feel our assets and family are protected. Thank you Dera.

I had attended a Horn & Johnsen (free) informational session on Wills vs Trusts and took advantage of the free consultation session offered to review our particular situation.
My husband and I decided that the trust was the best option and found the price to be reasonable considering it included bi-annual reviews &/or updates to the trust to keep it current.
Dera is very professional and friendly. Her explanations and examples were clearly stated and she answered all our questions.

We felt very confident in our estate planning. Dera explained everything in a way we could understand. If fact, we've requested her assistance in another business matter and look forward to working with her again.

I just finished guardianship for my daughter with special needs with Dera and I have also done estate planning with her. She is excellent and very knowledgeable! She was very easy to work with. Her whole team was a pleasure to work with. The processes for each service was smooth and painless. I felt that all my needs were taken care of and would not hesitate to recommend Dera to anyone.

I have had to hire an attorney several times and the old joke about "Dewey, Cheatem, and Hau: Attorney's at Law" certainly applied to those times. Last year, I had to find a new attorney and I had several people tell me about Dera. I have worked with her two times and each time I met with her, she has renewed my faith in the honesty and goodness in the practice of law. She has always taken the time to thoroughly explain what needs to happen and why. She is friendly and a very able attorney. Her fees are fair and reasonable and, unlike many others, she doesn't nickle and dime you to death nor does she charge you a percentage of your monthly bill for things like office supplies. Her work product is excellent.
I encourage you to consult and/or hire Dera. Her word is her bond and while that may seem a little old fashioned by today's standard, like me, you too will find her to be a blessing.

We were very pleased with our experiences with Dera Johnsen-Tracy. She was always on time, answered our questions in simple language, and was flexible in meeting our needs.

I first met Dera through an organization, Women in Finance, where she assisted in educating women to gain knowlege and control of the necessary information to prepare for their current and future life stages. I was very impressed by her style and professionalism. I knew I wanted to update my outdated will and felt she would be someone I could feel comfortable with talking about something so personal and emotional. She not only made the process easy and was very pleasant but when finished handed me a completed, organized binder, where I could add information for easy access and was easy to review.
