Review
I was acquainted professionally with Jeffrey Cramer for several years through my CPA background. After a period of discussion and deliberation, my wife and I hired Jeff Cramer to help us through the estate planning process. The professionalism of Jeff and his staff in creating and administering the Life Legacy Program for us has given our family great peace of mind with respect to this important part of our lives.

Great help in estate planning
When we moved to Florida ww did not know how to update our Will and trust to protect ourselves and our family. Jeff has guided us through this and keeps us updated on the laws. When we have a question or need to change something he is always available.

Excellent Professional Service
I was referred to Attorney Cramer by another firm I found online because I need advice on how to protect my mother's assets from unscrupulous con artists. He gave me a variety of options when I consulted with him, and he very clearly and simply explained the benefits and drawbacks of each. I decided to have him create a trust for my mother, and although she was skeptical about the process, he won her confidence right away in our first meeting. He was thorough, clear, and made sure to honor all my mothers requests. He even worked with her financial advisor and created the best option for her based on the total picture of her situation. Attorney Cramer and his entire staff made both of us feel very valued, and took the time to answer all our questions and explain everything that was involved. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ethical, conscientious professional who can explain legalese to the rest of us!

Estate planning Attorney | Sep 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I had the pleasure of working with Jeff on a couple of matters. I found him to be exceptionally sharp and knowledgeable, as well as pleasant to work with. It is obvious that he is one of those attorneys who truly cares about his clients. Since working together the first time, I have referred several clients to him for estate planning and will continue to do so."
Litigation Attorney | Feb 05
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the pleasure of knowing Jeff for five years through our membership in the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys. He has always proven himself to be a very knowledgeable and conscientious estate planning attorney. I have also had the opportunity to refer my Michigan clients to him when they have had legal matters in Florida. He has always had practical solutions to their issues and my clients have been happy with his services."
Estate planning Attorney | Oct 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Jeff is a highly respected attorney in the estate planning community. His philosophical approach to estate planning is one that is focused on deep relationships and attention to detail, which all help to ensure that his client's plans meet their objectives and goals. I highly recommend Jeff because you can expect compassionate and thorough counseling."
Estate planning Attorney | May 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have had the pleasure of knowing Jeff for many years through our association with the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys. I have also worked with him on a number of estate planning matters with our clients who are Florida residents. Jeff has consistently impressed me with the caring and compassionate manner in which he counsels and advises his clients. He has a strong command of technical legal estate planning concepts and is most effective in explaining complex legal concepts to his clients in easy to understand terms. Jeff is committed to creating estate plans that achieve his clients' objectives and is willing to explore non-traditional planning philosophies designed to achieve the highest rate of planning success. His practice is highly organized and systematized to ensure each client receives the highest level of client service. I have great respect for Jeff and highly endorse him."
Estate planning Attorney | May 04
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Having known Jeff for several years now in the 'community' of the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys, what impresses me most is his dedication to plans that work for his clients. That may seem quaint or obvious, but in the estate planning field, many 'living trust attorneys' just sell form documents and move on, leaving clients with false security but real confusion about a 'plan' that has little chance of working. Estate plans that truly accomplish the goals of the clients seem to be more the exception rather than the rule. By pleasant contrast, Jeff is exceptional! He is committed, and asks clients to be similarly committed, to thoroughly and thoughtfully develop a plan focused on their goals and objectives, and then to the necessary follow through and ongoing maintenance that it takes to make an estate plan fulfill all of its purposes. If you live anywhere around Jacksonville and are serious about accomplishing your estate planning goals, I recommend Jeff."
Trusts Attorney | Apr 15
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"While opposing Mr. Cramer on a contested trust matter I was able to work with Mr. Cramer to craft a resolution with achieved everyones goals and avoided the costly litigation that was about to begin. Mr. Cramer showed that he puts his clients interest first and was creative and responsive to the difficult situation we found ourselves in."
