Great Experience
Contacted Todd Hillock after reading reviews to update our very outdated Family Trust. Appreciated the thoroughness and time spent along with much-appreciated advice helping us make a difficult decision involving family members. Todd listened, provided guidance and direction to meet our needs. Highly recommend Todd Hallock.

Highly Recommend Todd.
My husband and I met with Todd for our estate planning. He took the time to sit down with us, get to know us personally, answer any questions we had, and recommend what was best for our situation. He was not only very knowledgeable, but very caring and honest about what we needed. The week after we signed our documents, my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Had we not listened to Todd's recommendations and put things in place, we would have missed out on some very crucial planning opportunities that would not be available to us following the diagnosis. In the process of visiting with doctors and other advisors, there multiple people who commented on the high quality of work Todd did for us. It took a lot of stress out of our situation, knowing we had all the necessary documents in place, and done by someone we trust. I highly recommend Todd!

Wils and estate planning
It was a very positive experience to have Todd Hallock review and revise our wills and trusts for up to date estate planning. He is very thorough, knowledgeable, competent and a very nice person to work with. He pointed out several changes in the law which directly affected us. He was also very prompt in working with our financial advisor and tax accountant. We were very satisfied with the services we received and would recommend him to anyone.

Outstanding Attorney
Todd is by far the best Attorney I have had the opportunity to work with. I have worked on many transactions over the years and had to enlist some of the top Law firms in the California area. I find Todd's experience, professional knowledge and ability to understand complex issues comparable and at times superior to some of these firms. Todd also brings a practical and realistic view on is counsel. I find that he is a great sounding board on business issues and will often help give a different perspective on the issues. Lastly, I find his rule of ethics and fiduciary responsibility refreshing in an environment where it is not always discernible whether an Attorney really has your best interest at heart.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Hallock was amazing through what we thought would be a month long issue that turned into over two years. He was very knowledgeable of the laws and help us through a difficult and emotional procedure. We always felt like we were in the loop of what was going on with our defense. Mr. Hallock also stepped up when opposing counsel was not.

Review of Todd N. Hallock from long standing client
I have enlisted the services of Todd Hallock and his staff on a series of issues for over ten years. Todd's expertise has been instrumental in handling issues for me that have ranged from property litigation and liability protection, to wills, living trusts and power of attorney. He has also advised me on estate tax issues and rental agreements. In all areas and at all times, Todd's courtesy, concern and ability to commnicate freely were of enormous comfort to me. His ability and competence has helped me out of, or kept me from, difficult situations more than once. His staff members are bright, friendly, knowledgeable, and are always a pleasure to work with. I have also benefitted from his referrals to other local professionals whose services I have required over the years. I would recommend him without reservation.

It was a pleasure working with Todd Hallock
I worked with Mr. Hallock for both personal and business legal reasons. He was always extremely professional and articulate. Work was done on time and as stated. I would definitely recommend Todd Hallock for any legal reasons, and I would not hesitate to use his services again.
Posted by Rigo | May 24, 2011
When I moved to this valley and took over this business I started asking my clients who they would recommend as an attorney for me and my business. After 6 months of searching Todd was highly recommended. After working with Todd for the last 6 years, I have impressed with his moral character and his effective method of taking care of my personal and business needs.
