Testimonial Review
My wife and I completed our Wills in 1991. In the 31-year intervening period, we gained three grandsons, one of whom is a special needs person, and we very recently lost our only son. We decided that we needed to create a Living Trust for our family while updating both our Wills. We identified three law firms specializing in Estate Planning and thoroughly researched each firm. We decided on the Starr Law Firm and interviewed their senior partner, Bert Starr. The law firm had a particular strength in writing Special Needs Trusts which was important us. In the middle of the project, I had a medical emergency and they worked with us without any pressure and even offered to accommodate us in any way possible. The end result was an Estate Plan that was very comprehensive, very thorough, and it met our expectations entirely. My wife and I are very happy with our choice of the Starr Law Firm and would recommend the firm without hesitation.

Thorough, professional and friendly!
We moved from another state with a revocable trust which was drawn almost a decade ago. In establishing a financial relationship locally, we were given a few names of attorneys who could update our trust. We choose Starr Law Firm and reached Laura upon calling the office. We had an initial conference call with Laura and Bert, finding both to be thorough, knowledgeable and friendly. We have attorneys in our family (in other states) and we deal with many through our company dealings. Laura and Bert answered our questions with skill. They worked with our schedule since we had to travel back to take care of work related issues, but most of the paperwork could be handled by email. Mike in their office is also very helpful, which is an added plus. Everything was explained in depth, they made sure we were comfortable with the way the trust is structured and we know we can call with any further questions. This is the second time we have worked with trust attorneys, in two states. This process was far more streamlined and our document signing was as expedient as could be. They are also very attune to the concern for public health, so they went out of their way to make sure we knew what their Covid safety practices are. This was something we needed to do before tackling other things involved in moving, but now we are confident knowing our estate planning has been updated, which frees us up for the next steps in our lives. We highly recommend Starr Law Firm's services and look forward to referring them to others.

Very professional and friendly
We had our estate documents prepared by Laura. Despite being a young attorney, one may think she has no experience. My experience with her is the contrary. She was very approachable and answered all the questions we had and had a lot of suggestions. She came accross very professional yet friendly. Highly recommend her!

don't know what title means
Laura was my attorney for estate planning, including an updated will after my husband died. It was a somewhat emotional exercise, but Laura was warm, supportive, knowledgeable, dependable, clear about the process and timeframes, produced quality work, and helped simplify the amount of paperwork. Overall, Laura was a pleasure to work with and an expert attorney.
