We definitely chose the best attorney for our estate planning document. Our needs were met as to what specifically we needed to accomplish. We are very satisfied with the service that Mike provided for us and found him thorough, efficient and truly caring as to the quality of his work.

First-Class Estate Planning
I hired Mike Massey in 2019 outside of Avvo to develop Texas estate planning documents. I found Mike to be a virtuous man - humble, patience, friendly, with good legal acumen. In addition, Mike is efficient and thorough while demonstrating strong problem solving solutions. I highly recommend Mike Massey Law to anyone, no matter their family relations, medical situation, material possessions, or legal issues to assist in one's estate planning.

Exceptional Integrity and Competence
Mike Massey is a person of exceptional integrity and competence; the two most important qualities needed in a lawyer. His ability to make a complex process clear and straightforward was greatly beneficial to our family. I thought about trying to do our family's estate planning on my own through Legal Zoom. There is no way that I could have come close to the quality of Mike's work. The cost/value proposition was exceptional; I could find no other law firm in Austin that provided the same services at the same costs. Thank you Mike.

Estate Planning Made Easy
Like most adults, we knew estate planning is an important component of planning your family's future. Also, like most people, it was an intimidating process to contemplate. I can say,without reservation, Mike Massey Law (Stephanie and team in Austin) broke the estate planning process down so that it was easy to understand, easy to tailor to our needs, and easy to complete. Definitely recommend and will definitely return in the future!

Wonderful experience
Needed to get some trust documents changed. The document changes were made quickly and accurately. Reviewed the documents a few days prior to the meeting and they looked perfect. Went into their office and Stephanie went through them with me and asked if there were any question from which she answered immediately while I was there and we completed the documents. It was a pleasing experience. I had seen other attorneys and one wanted $250 for an hour premeeting and one wanted $350 for notary. None of that here. They care about you and will get it done, and done right, without all the rip-off garbage. Good job. Thank you.

Personal, Professional, and Prompt Attorney
We contacted Mike to review our trust and other legal documents that we had put in place several years ago. He was very helpful and easy to work with. He immediately concluded that the revokable trust we had did not need re-doing (saving us a great of money. I’m sure). He suggested that our Power of Attorney documents and advanced directives needed to be expanded and more detailed. He was able to develop these documents in one week. I felt his fees were fair. Our follow-up and document signing with Stephanie and Alberto went smoothly and all our questions were answered. I recommend Mike and his firm without reservations. James Gilliam

Simple and easy!
Quick, easy, and fairly priced work on setting up our family trust. Stephanie was super friendly and pleasant to work with. She answered all our questions, offered some things for us to consider, and was our advocate all the way through. The signing was quick and well organized. Made checking this long postponed task off SO painless!

Excellent and Fast Service
When Mike Massey was not available, Stefanie Long would correspond with me. She was very helpful in letting me know what Texas law would allow in my Will and explained items I didn’t understand. She made sure my Will was done correctly and in a timely manner. She made the signing process very easy by having everything organized . I also chose Mike Massey Law Firm because they were less expensive and could process the documents much faster. I highly recommend Mike Massey and Stefanie Long in assisting you with your Will.

Stephanie Esq
Stephanie has been communicating with me promptly and periodically for all my needed amendments to the the Original WILL. For all my proposed amendments she explained to me the way it can be structured preserving the content of my amendments. Reminders were continuously sent to me about the Meeting for signing at your office in Austin [418 Grace Lane). Even during signing I asked her some questions for clarification. She clarified distinctly. In the last minute I requested for elimination of a paragraph and she deleted and printed a new page and added to the WILL. For sending the original of the "Revocable transfer of Death Deed" to the Williamson County, Stephanie made it so easy for me. Overall, I am immensely pleased with her strong approach to helping the client on legal matters as well as the retention of existing client. For all my future needs, I will strongly prefer Stephanie Esq.

An important task made easy
We needed to update our wills and other estate documents. We were easily able to book an appointment and met with Mike for our initial meeting. Mike took the time to go over all considerations for our estate, powers of attorney, and medical directives. We followed up with Stephanie Long, who drafted new and updated documents. She took the time to review all of her drafts and amend as necessary. Several days later Stephanie had the final drafts ready for signing. To say this process was organized and efficient doesn't do justice. Stephanie had all of the forms laid out ready to look over and sign, and Melissa the staff notary was also present. All documents were signed, witnessed and notarized on the spot. We were presented with a beautifully organized binder containing all our executed documents, guides and FAQs. The whole process from initial meeting to the execution of all documents and delivery of completed documents took just over a week. Kudos to Mike, Stephanie, et al. It doesn't get better than that!
