Jeffrey and his staff helped set up wills and living wills for my late wife and me. My wife was very ill and these folks couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating given her deteriorating condition. Frank discussions were handled with great care. It wasn't long after our visit with Jeffrey that she lost her battle with cancer but because we had properly planned with him, resolving any post-death issues were made fairly simple. I heartily recommend Jeffrey and his team and thank them for their help and kindness.

He is extremely knowledgeable.
I did most of the leg work with the banks and retirement accounts would have been very expensive otherwise.

My wife and I set up a revocable family trust with Jeff Gottlieb. We started the process of deciding what estate planning lawyer to go to about a year ago. We set up meetings with Jeff and another law firm in the area. We felt that Jeff had the expertise and great attitude to put together a trust for us. He exhibited a great amount of patience with us as he translated legal terms in our trust to plain English! We're glad we finally moved ahead with his firm. We felt the price we paid for their services was fair.
Jeff's assistant, Kris, held our hands during the entire process. She wanted to be sure our documents were set up properly and that our assets were named properly to the trust. This office even filled out the paperwork to transfer most of our holdings to the trust. This is quite a process, so this help meant a lot to us.
It was a pleasure working with this firm.
