Estate Planning
My husband and I were in need of updating our wills and were looking for an attorney that specialized in estate planning. Natasha was highly recommended to us by a retirement specialist with whom we had been working. Natasha provided us with excellent advice and revised our wills with testamentary trusts to a very high standard. We are confident our wills will be executed to meet our wishes without any legal problems because of the expertise Natasha provided. Her pleasant demeanor, confidence, and kindness made it very nice to work with her.

Estate Planning
As recent residents of Idaho, my wife and I were in need of updating our 10 year old trust. Natasha was very instrumental in doing just that. She took the time to inform us of the best routes for us to properly protect our estate, specific to Idaho laws that presented the best decisions we could make for our family! We found her to be well versed regarding Estate Planning, engaging, informative with respect to any questions we had during the process and best of all she has a dynamic personality! We 100% recommend Natasha to those in need of services in her areas of expertise. Thank you Natasha! S&J

Wonderful service
My husband and I went to Natasha to set up both estate and living wills. She was very informative on the procedure. She gathered the information and asked pertinent questions and had great advice in directing us and our wishes. When we went in to sign, again, Natasha took the time to walk us through the documents and clearly explained any questions or concerns that we had. The whole process was painless and we feel much more secure now that we have such important documents in place.

Natasha Hazlett - Estate Planning
We attended Natasha's "Estate Planning 101" seminar with Boise Schools Community Education program. As a result of her informative presentation we elected to follow up with her for our estate planning.

Estate planning
My husband and I hired Natasha to update our wills this spring. She very clearly laid out our options and provided excellent advice as we worked our way through them. We had signed wills within 6 weeks of our first meeting. Natasha was quick to reply to both telephone messages and e-mails. I would highly recommend her services for estate planning.

We asked Natasha to review and renew our wills. She did an excellent job and helped us to fill out new forms, helping each spouse in this state to avoid probate.

Knowledgeable
My husband & I had attended a class on Wiils taught by Natasha Hazlett. This was the best class we had attended sponsored by the Boise School District. We decided to have Natasha prepare our Wills & are very happy we did. She explained each process in the Will & made it clear that she is there for us anytime we have questions. My husband & I have recommended Natasha to all our neighbors & friends.

Estate Planning
Ms. Hazlett was very patient with me. While I was intending to get a Living Trust, she helped me understand that I did not necessarily need that tool, that a Testamentary Trust would be just as sufficient. AND save me about a thousand dollars. What attorney does that?! None that I had previously spoke with. During the process I had a ton of questions and she was always available to me via email and answered my questions in a timely manner. She even went as far as to postpone my final signing until she knew I was completely confident with my final wishes. As a single woman with two grown children who was going through estate planning as a part of my pre-retirement checklist, I am completely satisfied with Ms. Hazlett's counsel and highly recommend her.

Well Versed and Well Spoken
We first met Natasha during one of her community education classes on estate planning. This course was a great introduction and convinced my wife and me to pursue an estate plan. All throughout the class and the planning process Natasha gave us easy to understand examples to help us through the decision making process, all while not pressuring us one way or another.

Gave me advice regarding an inheritance issue and wrote a letter to the executor of the estate requesting additional documentation, which assisted in my receiving an increased inheritance. I was comfortable with her and felt she was very knowledgable.

Estate Planning
My husband and I first met Natasha Hazlitt at an Estate Planning workshop thru Community Education. The information she gave at the workshop was very informative and thorough. We then hired Natasha to help us complete our Estate Planning. She was very thorough and professional, certainly covered items we hadn't even thought of! A year later we needed a change made to our Wills, once again Natasha and her staff were very efficient and professional. We would definitely recommend Natasha Hazlitt. Although we hope we won't need her services again, should the need arise we will not hesitate to give her a call!!!

Friendly and professional
Recently my wife and I engaged Ms. Hazlett to prepare our wills and associated documents. Our will included a somewhat complicated inheritance trust component. We found Ms. Hazlett to be very knowledgeable and competent about estate planning and Idaho law. She was excellent about communicating with us; in fact, on occasion she responded to evening emails within minutes. We recommend her without reservation.

Estate planning experience
Natasha did a great job walking me through the estate planning process. She took the mystery and apprehension out of the process and explained everything quite well. I've procrastinated planning my estate for 15 years and I'm very happy to finally have it done. It only took about 2.5 hours and the peace of mind is well worth it.

Estate Planning
Natasha was very thorough and she explained every detail, making sure I was understanding the information. She based my estate needs on my personal circumstances, not on a blanket group of unnecessary documents. I have a complete peace of mind that all my affairs are in order thanks to Natasha and I am so happy that I found her for my legal counsel. I will be referring my friends to her in the future.

Last Will
I hired Natasha to prepare a last will and durable power of attorney. We met twice. During our first meeting she asked me questions regarding my needs, doing a thorough job so as to have enough information from me to move on. Near the end of the meeting she gave me the rate for the proposed service and asked if I would like to proceed. Upon agreement and payment of the fee we settled on a date for a future meeting. Later her office called to confirm the appointment. We meet a second time where she gave me time to read through the documents myself and then went through all the important sections with me. After each section paused to make sure I concurred prior to moving on. Once I was certain of the details she had a staff member photocopy as many sets as requested. I thought Natasha was professional in every way and would recommend her without hesitation.

No worries.....hire Natasha
An important issue that I have avoided for years...yes years. Natasha made it all so easy and understandable. Her workshop gave me the little push I needed to get started and Natasha did the rest. Feels good to have this process under control. Thank you Natasha

Working with Natasha was wonderful!
When you need legal services, you want a lawyer who is knowledgeable, fair, clear, straight-forward, and instructive. Natasha Hazlett is all of these things, and more. She listens, gets right to the point, explains the options, makes recommendations where appropriate, and then goes to work. She delivers, as promised, on time and on budget. If we weren't sure about something, she would slow down and explain it in more detail. She never was impatient or intimidating. She was personal and had a good sense of humor. I would recommend her to anyone who has need for legal services with probate or estate planning.
