I have known Stuart for over ten years. During this time, I have worked with him on a combination of personal and professional legal issues.
Stuart is incredibly adept at taking very complex legal principles and explaining them in a manner that just about anybody can understand. I am also impressed at how practical the advice is that he gives his clients. Clients can actually use the advice he gives to make their personal situation better. He is a great team player, willing to involve other professionals, including other attorneys, when he deems it best for the client. Stuart is very patient, a very good listener, and a very straightforward communicator. I can't imagine what else anyone could ask of their counselor.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Stuart to anybody seeking exceptional legal representation. Whether needing a simple will to be drafted, or developing and implementing a strategy for avoiding probate, or dealing with probate issues after the fact, Stuart O'Brien is the advocate you and your family need.

My family and I hired Stuart O'Brien as our probate attorney for my sister's estate in Missouri. Because our family lived out of state we dealt with all of the correspondence either on the phone or e-mail. I was the Personal Representative and had never been through this process before. Stuart took the time and patiently explained the process as each step came up. Every question I had was answered throughly until I understood. Stuart was excellent at returning phone calls, and often I was the one returning his phone calls checking to make sure I had completed the task before the deadlines came up. I learned so much and enjoyed every conversation we had. He has an incredible sense of humor and knows when to implement it even in the trying times we shared together. He went the extra mile and would drive through my sister's neighborhood and let me know if her house was ok since it sat vacant for awhile. The entire process took two and a half years to complete and I enjoyed many conversations regarding my sister's probate peppered with what was going on in each of our communities. We have since finished up the probate and I can't believe how much I have learned and how much better off I am now that I know how to set things up for my family in case of the inevitable. Better to be prepared than unaware. Thank you, Stuart, for educating me on all the legal aspects of planning for the future and all of the laughs from your hilarious one liners!!!
