What a helpful kind lawyer
Brent has helped my family receive VA benefits for my mother. He was extremely helpful throughout the years. He was available for every question my family had. Once my mother passed away he helped us finalize the trust. He was so wonderful to work with. I would recommend him to anyone.

Professional and Personable
Brent was organized and very knowledgeable as we created a trust for our estate. He explained complex things well and took as much time with us as we needed. We never felt rushed and every little detail was taken care of to our liking. He has a great sense of humor but is always professional. I highly recommend him to anyone in estate planning!

Estate Planning - Living Trust
Brent was referred to us through my financial advisor, after I retired in 2021. We determined that having a living trust in place, would be in our best interest, due to medical issues. Don't want any issues down the road, with probate. We were able to meet with Brent in Phoenix to set everything up and again to finalize the living trust. He was very helpful with all of it, explaining each part as we went along. Brent is very professional and thorough, easy to talk to and we felt very comfortable and confident with the service he provided.

Hospital School Teacher
My husband and I were lucky enough to begin working with Brent in 2016 to untangle the complicated affairs of my elderly parents and apply for a VA pension. Not only did his legal knowledge and skills far exceed our expectations but he also became our most trusted advisor and friend. We then hired him for estate planning including establishing a trust. He was so thorough that even the bank was impressed! I have worked with many professionals through the years. Brent Kellenberger is the gold standard, the best of the best. His compassion towards those most vulnerable; his willingness to guide others with integrity; his patience and kindness during his clients' most difficult life situations -- these are only a few examples of his rare true servant leadership. Thank you, Brent, for setting the example for all of us.
