Living Trust
Now that we have completed the process of a living trust, we have peace of mind knowing that our family has everything in order. Sandra Diaz broke everything down for us and patiently answered all our questions.

I love this attorney!
This attorney totally redid our very old trust and made sure my disabled husband was protected. She did just as I asked her to do. It was a joy working with her and her office. They are all very professional and made me feel like my husband and I were super important.

A lawyer you can trust!
Sandra Diaz and her staff are professional, caring, and thorough. Sandra takes the time to listen to the details of your situation and offer logical and sound solutions. My husband and I normally shy away from referring friends for services, but we have referred friends to Sandra and will continue to do so. We are impressed and grateful for Sandra and her staff. You will be happy with them too.

Family Trust
We had been postponing setting up a family trust for a long time. She and her staff walked us through it and made it very easy.

She is a first class attorney!
When I went in to see Sandra I was totally confused about how to set up a trust, what was important that needed to be included, etc. etc. She was so patient and kind in explaining everything to me, answering all my questions and never making me feel rushed. I think she's wonderful.

Supportive service
Mom was suffering from dementia and I had to get through her previously poorly completed documents to properly care for her. Sandra helped me to understand the process and guide me through what I needed to do to care for Mom. I greatly appreciate her abilities during my very difficult time.

Fanstastic Information
My sibling are in disagreement with one of our siblings on financing of our mothers' care, however Ms. Diaz was able to be a fantastic third party and give us honest options for our mother. Ms. Diaz, did a great job directing us on what our options were to help us take care of our mother. Thank You Ms. Diaz I highly recommend her.

Great Estate Planning and Elder Law Lawyer
I was referred to Sandra from a friend. I finally got to the point in my life that it was time to get a trust. I should have done it years ago but I guess it all worked out because Ms Diaz really helped explain everything. She took her time with me and made sure I completed everything. She also made sure all my assets were going to be protected and we talked about what I want for my family. I spoke to three different lawyers and Ms. Diaz made me the most comfortable. I've already had my brother visit her as well. Don't put off getting your trust done. It's a relief to finally do it and feel secure. Thank you Ms. Diaz!

Very disappointed
We had a phone consultation with Sandra after waiting 4 days to get said appointment. During the consultation, we explained the issues and told her that this was a very time-sensitive matter. During the phone conversation, she implied that she could help with the financial elder abuse of my father. We sent all documents she requested for her review within a few hours of the phone call. We never heard back from her. I emailed her several times and called her office several times and still never heard anything. If she did not want to take the case, that would have been fine but she should have contacted us either way. Her failure to contact us led us to lose valuable time in a very time-sensitive matter. I was very surprised and disappointed in her failure to contact us, which seems either irresponsible or lacking in concern for our family's legal issues. My father has since passed away, further complicating the issues of the case.
