We hired Attorney Bouman to re do the existing family trusts and 3 new trusts for 2 daughters and a grand son. He explained matters clearly at beginning and all trusts were completed within 2 weeks efficiently. Always answered all questions quickly during the review period. The charges were reasonable and as agreed previously.

We were very pleased with Tom Bouman's legal assistance. He orchestrated our Will and Living Trust. He was efficient and made sure we understood all aspects. Tom was available for questions and clearly explained our responsibility as well as his.

Tom recently helped my wife and I with updating our Estate Planning as new residents in Arizona.
He is very professional, ethical, organized and analytical.
He listened to our requirements. gave good advice and guidance,
and explained difficult concepts clearly.
He made a potentially depressing subject stimulating and educational.
It was a wonderful experience.
I would recommend him to anyone.

I have known attorney Tom Bouman for many years and we belong to some of the same attorney organizations. Without a doubt Tom is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys in Arizona. His book “Arizona Estate Administration Answer Book” is the probate and estate settlement book which many attorneys rely upon. I have two offices and I keep a copy in each office. His knowledge is vast and he cares deeply for his clients. Tom not only knows the law but also thinks out of the box to solve problems for clients. He is a pleasure to work with, generous, and very caring. I would not hesitate to refer my family to Tom.
