Super helpful!!
My wife just gave birth to our first child and shortly thereafter my mother-in-law scared the living crap out of me about not having a will. I didn’t know the first thing about estate planning, so after looking around at a few different lawyers online, I got a free consultation with Greg. He was MEGA-helpful!! No pretenses or legal jargon to intimidate me; he came over to our apartment and didn’t mind all of our piled up dishes and dirty laundry. Greg was able to guide me in the decisions I never wanted to think about or deal with in a way that made me feel at ease. Even more he talked to me like a friend and someone who genuinely cares about my needs and my family's best interests.

Easy, stress-free, affordable
We were daunted at the thought of doing wills because we didn't have a sense of cost, what else we should be asking about, and generally felt rather ignorant about the whole process. Greg's mission statement drew us in. We were pleasantly surprised that for one flat (reasonable) fee we would get wills, power of attorney, HIPAA, living wills and instructions! Having him come to our house as opposed to going to an intimidating office setting was also convenient. Greg walked us through everything and answered our questions knowledgeably and patiently. He anticipated details we had not thought about and he communicated and managed our expectations really well. All in all the process was stress-less, easy and affordable. Greg really cares about providing and making accessible professional legal services to ordinary individuals like us. It feels awesome to have this matter taken care of! Thanks, Greg! We are happy to recommend him.

Fantastic Estate Planning Made Easy!
Greg was absolutely great to work with, we are very pleased with the final Estate planning documents we have a result. Greg has a lot of experience and thus the know-how to make what could be a complicated process actually very user friendly. We have a special needs son and a few other complex family situations that needed to be addressed in our documents, Greg was patient and thorough in working with these issues. I would highly recommend Greg's services and wouldn't hesitate to go back to him in the future.

The most thoughtful lawyer & easiest process to get your will done.
We just signed our will, living will, power of attorney, etc., with Greg at our dining room table this fall 2018. I have to say Greg was the most helpful, thoughtful, and responsive lawyer we ever could have imagined working with. Greg made the entire process super easy. He answered every one of our questions and addressed every concern we might have had. He was respectful, a great and concise communicator, and a wonderful listener. He’s especially gifted at explaining legal concepts in plain English which is really helpful. He allowed us to think about ideas and what we wanted to write in our will – but he also made good suggestions that we never would have come up with ourselves. Although we delayed our own process several times, Greg would check-in with us and see if he could help us think something through. If he practiced law in Oregon, where I'm from originally, I would book him for my Mom and family in a second. Hire this guy! And honestly, just get your will done. Check it off the list. You’ll feel better when you do. I would wholeheartedly recommend Greg’s legal services in a heartbeat. He’s also just a really lovely and fun guy to talk with.

Highly Recommend
I hired Greg Berlowitz to create a will and estate plan for me, and found him to be professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. What really set him apart was his ability to listen and understand my specific needs and concerns, and to make sure they were reflected in the legal documents he created for me.

Wills
We procrastinated on having our wills drawn up for the longest time. I am so happy that we hired Greg. He made the process so easy. Greg was super organized & helped us to organize us, as well. Greg finished our wills, etc in a very timely matter. We received much more than we thought we would. The final product was a binder full of organized, easily understandable material. Greg was professional, yet easy to follow & personable.

Estate Planning
After procrastinating for years, we hired Greg Berlowitz to help us with Wills and Powers of Attorney based on the recommendation of a trusted neighbor. Greg was able to set our minds at ease, explain the various documents and the costs involved clearly, and assist us with our decision making process in a kind and practical manner. We found Greg to be responsive and easy to work with. We confidently recommend his services to anyone considering Wills and Estate Planning.

Will, HIPAA, Living Will and Power of Attorney
I had an old, outdated will since my husband died over 6 years ago. On the recommendation of a friend, I contacted Greg with a deadline for a new will, since I was going to be traveling within a month. He promised he'd have the will (and other pertinent papers) prepared before my trip, and he did! He responded quickly and comprehensively to my questions. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who wants an honest, dedicated lawyer.

Wonderful to work with Greg!
Our last kids just turned 18. We hired Greg to update our will and transfer everything into a trust as well as create healthcare power of attorney for our non-minor children. Greg was fantastic. He came to our home, explained everything clearly and helped talk through some of the healthcare decision making power of attorney issues with our kids. He has great follow-up and a wonderful manner with people. I would highly recommend his services.
