Estate Planning
Kabbe Law was recommended to us via a family friend. They were extremely helpful and attentive to our needs. The process was both informative and easy to navigate. They took the time to listen, and then patiently advise on the multiple possible outcomes of our decisions.

Great Firm - Great Team
Yet another seamless and personal experience with Jeff and his team. Over the past few years they have lead me through Estate Planning for myself and my parents.

My wife and I were extremely pleased with the estate planning Mr. Kabbe completed for us. Our initial meeting was friendly, never intimidating, professional and through. The question and answer exchange was informative, concise and understandable without the threat of confusion due to “legalese verbiage”. We both left our estate planning meeting with Mr. Kappe with complete confidence and satisfaction about our future.

Trust/Estate planning
We used Jef for our Estate Planning and we had a great experience! Everything was very well organized and very well communicated. We felt like we understood the process well, and had a great experience with Jef's support team.

Highly Recommend!
We have been extremely impressed by the professional, knowledgable, and very thorough estate planning process we just completed with Jeff Kabbe at Kabbe Law Group. Each member of the team was personal, kind, and went out of their way to answer any and all questions we had; especially in the area of planning for a family member with special needs.

Timely and careful guidance.
Jeffrey guided me through necessary updates pertaining to my estate planning with clarity, timeliness and professionalism. He is accommodating and resourceful and handles communication in an organized and deft manner. I gained a more informed understanding of the issues through his careful review of what I was trying to achieve. I look forward to working with him again. Thank you.

Estate & Retirement Planning
Jeff was referred to us by our financial advisor. We're extremely satisfied with the final product. Jeff's method of simplifying the process & his knowledge of estate planning eliminated any concerns we had.

Mr. Jeffery Kabbe
We consulted with Mr. Jeffery Kabbe concerning a Special Needs Trust we have for our daughter. The trust was started by another lawyer a few years ago. Mr. Kabbe provided us with excellent information about making the trust the beneficiary to our retirement accounts. He explained some financial things we did not understand or realize. He assured us that the trust is a valid Special Needs Trust. His advice and input was more than we anticipated. We believe he went above and beyond our specific needs by recommending we consult with a lawyer familiar with Social Security to address those concerns.

Outstanding service!
I recently worked with Jeff Kabbe and others at The Kabbe Law Group and was very pleased with their service. Jeff showed extreme patience and was very thoughtful as he advised me through some difficult decisions. The staff went out of their way to be sure I was ready for the sessions and comfortable throughout. I'd give six stars if I could!

Amazing attorney
Jeff has helped me with estate planning over the past year. He is not even close to your typical lawyer. He cares, listens, and is very personable. Although he has a very busy practice, he always makes himself available. He is very straightforward, honest, intelligent, ethical and professional. His office staff welcomes you warmly every time as if you are family. I consider both attorneys at Kabbe Law Group, Jeff and Natalia (his wife and founder of the law group) personal friends who really deserve their stellar reputation. I felt compelled to share my experience, because it is rare to find these combination of qualities in this profession.

Jeff Kabbe review
Jeff has done an outstanding job on the case he had worked for me. His passion for the law is outstanding. His research was so detailed he covered every scenario possible. His briefs were thougtful and well written.His dedication to my case was awesome, he worked while he was on vacation! I would recommend Jeff to anyone!!!

One of best lawywers I have ever worked with
Jeff is very comprehensive in the estate planning process and takes the extra time to explain exactly in layman's terms how the clauses work etc. He suggested different ways to go about getting to our goal and took the time to discuss each one. In addition, he responds very quickly and immediately to phone calls and emails, which I have found to not be true of other lawyers I have worked with in the past. I would recommend Jeff to anyone needing a top notch estate plan and wants to actually know how it works!
