Very helpful
Corey offered useful advice concerning a charitable trust issue I was dealing with. He understood my objectives as well as my concerns and I will definitely follow up on his recommendations.

Goes Over and Above
In December, my world was turned upside down. My best friend, my mentor, my dear father passed away. I needed legal assistance to guide me through the probate process. I called Corey's office on a Sunday and left a message on his answering machine. Because it was a Sunday I didn't expect to receive a call back until Monday at the earliest. I was pleasantly surprised and extremely grateful when I received a call within a few hours on the same day. I was so emotional and sad and needed legal advice. The minute I started explaining my situation, Corey immediately put me at ease and took a considerable amount of time explaining the probate process to me. I retained his services and he made a painful situation bearable. His level of professionalism, his people skills and compassion far exceeded my expectations. I will always remember how he took the time on a Sunday afternoon to return a phone call. He sensed the sadness in my voice. He kept me informed and answered all of my questions from start to finish. I would recommend this wonderful lawyer without hesitation. Not only does he offer outstanding legal services, he also offers free seminars which are very informative and open to the general public. I would recommend anyone with estate planning needs or anyone who wants to empower themselves with valuable information to attend one of his seminars. Over the years I have heard a lot of bad comments and jokes about lawyers and used car salesmen, but Corey is definitely one of the good guys.

A Great Estate and Probate Attorney
Corey came highly recommended to us when we were looking for an estate planner. After our first meeting, we understood why. He's very knowledgeable, thorough and enjoyable to work with. He took the time to understand our wants and needs and created an extensive plan personalized to our young family that reached far beyond our expectations. Not long after, Cory also helped us through the probate process for a loved one. Through both experiences, he gave a clear understanding of each process and what we should expect, was quick to answer our questions and kept us updated along the way. We are glad we found Corey and have since recommended him to our own family and friends.

Excellent attorney for trusts and wills.
Corey helped us revise and update our trust and wills. He showed great interest in us and was extremely thorough. Corey spent considerable time explaining the whole process. We believe he is an excellent attorney and would recommend him to anyone needing help revising or creating a trust.

Review: Corey Rasmussen
Corey, was great. He went above and beyond my expectations. He came to our house to provide services (more than once). He was very patient and helpful to me. He actually sorted my mail related to our business! He was easy to talk to and explained things at a level that was understandable to us.

Excellent service based on expert knowledge
Working with Corey was fantastic. My wife and I were setting up a new business, and needed to have a complete estate plan established. Corey not only covered the basics, but included important protections for our children's future that I never would have thought of. He also made sure we understood how to use the information in order to update other assets like life insurance. I have recommended Corey to several of my friends, and will continue to do so without reservation.

Integrity, Knowledgeable, & Caring
I was asked to write this review for Corey Rasmussen & I feel it is my pleasure to be able to do so. After my husband passed away I knew that my assets were a mess & needed to be corrected & changed. I knew of all the problems that my family would have with my Estate if something were to happen to me. After I had put this off for a very long time a friend gave me Corey’s name & told me to just call him. After my initial meeting I understood the recommendation. Corey was very knowledgeable & very professional he put me at ease & was very easy to talk with. Corey listening to all of my concerns & was very interested in me & how he could best help he also offered several recommendations which were put in place. He took the time to explain all of the steps with the Estate Planning Process & he was always well prepared & proactive which helped me obtain a favorable outcome. He was very thorough & answered all of my questions. He furnished me with all of the important information necessary to make the best decisions for me & my family. He has always been available to me to help work out any problem that might have arisen. With Corey’s knowledge & help he made something that was very difficult for me & seemed to be unobtainable so very simple. Corey & his staff are the greatest always very professional & courteous, Even though my time with Corey & his staff has been short I feel it was time well spent. Thanks, Corey

Living Trust review with revisions
My wife & I worked with Cory several years ago to revise our Living Trust. Several of our beneficiaries passed away recently and this prompted us to meet with Cory again. This time we attempted make our trust more comprehensive to minimize the chance that we will need to revise it again anytime soon. Working with Cory we developed a plan to leave our assets to a number of relatives & their children. We adopted a number of Cory's suggestions.

Nothing but Net Great experience
When invited to write a review of Mr. Rasmussen I enthusiastically accepted the invitation. After our first consultation my wife and I were very impressed with Mr. Rasmussen and decided to use him and his services to help us with our living trust. We felt that Corey was interested in a relationship and was focused on our specific needs. He was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our question. I did not feel rushed during the process and appreciated the care he took in making sure My wife and I understood the options and were comfortable with all the decision that had to be made. I felt like he was generous with his time and appreciated his honesty, responsiveness and professionalism. My wife and I thought Mr. Rasmussen went above and beyond in helping us set up our living trust and organizing two small business. We both offer our recommendation for the person and services of Mr.Corey Rasmussen Mark
