Outstanding Service
Ms. Natan and her team were a wonderful group with whom to work. I had postponed the estate planning process long enough and decided that I needed to get a plan in place. Ms. Natan's incredibly large knowledge base put me at ease. She was able to expertly guide me throughout the process to ensure that my plan reflected my wishes and also avoided the pitfalls which many times occur with estates. Ms. Natan's team was also top-notch as well. Thank you to Ms. Natan and her team - you have made a difficult process as easy as possible. JM

Excellent Estate Planning Attorney
We were referred to Ms. Natan by a friend of ours who is an attorney. We are delighted that he made the referral. My wife and I needed to get our affairs in order, as we had not yet completed any estate planning. Ms. Natan was able to advise and assist us both with our estate planning and also make recommendations to other professionals. I would highly recommend Ms. Natan and her excellent team at SSS Legal and Consultancy Services, APC for anyone in need of estate planning. S.A. and T.A.

We made a great choice
I first met Manya when I was doing a video recording for another client of her firm. That client’s matter was challenging, as there were difficult family dynamics. I was impressed by how Manya handled the matter. After seeing her navigate this difficult situation, I decided that she would be the right fit for me and my wife when we moved forward with our own estate planning. We are delighted we chose to work with Manya and her team. They are friendly, professional, personable, and made the process as easy as possible. I would highly recommend Manya and her team for anyone in need of estate planning, whether simple or complex. S.Z. and L.Z

My father unexpectedly past away while in the hospital. Unfortunately, he had failed to get his affairs in order, despite my attempts to assist him with the process. At the end of his life, he was only kept alive with life support. It became a source of contention in our family because he never left clear instructions regarding his preferences. After witnessing this, I knew I wanted to get my own affairs in order as quickly as possible. I have assets in both Canada and the U.S. and was referred to Ms. Natan because of her international expertise. I was extremely pleased with Ms. Natan and her team. She helped me locate professional fiduciaries to serve as my Successor Trustees and agents. She skillfully drafted my estate planning documents and was also able to assist me with understanding my father's estate process. Thank you to SSS Legal for helping me get my affairs in order.

Wonderful Experience
Manya Deva Natan was recommended to me by my mother and sister after having their trusts updated by Ms. Natan and her SSS Legal Team. Like them I am extremely pleased with the entire process of amending and restating my trust. Ms. Natan and her team couldn't have made it any easier! Thank you very much for all your help!

Exceptional Service and Team!
Thank you to Ms. Natan and her team for assisting me with amending and restating my trust, as well as updating my other estate planning documents. We were originally referred to Ms. Natan to assist my daughter in establishing a revocable trust, as she was turning twenty one and needed to get her affairs in order. I was impressed with Ms. Natan and her team, so when the time came to get my own affairs in order, I chose to work with her. Ms. Natan and her staff are easy to work with and highly qualified to assist. Thank you for the help! M.P.

Skillful Estate Planning
I referred my parents to Ms. Natan to have their estate planning documents re-done, and I am so glad I did. From start-to-finish Ms. Natan and her team were excellent. They were professional and organized. Ms. Natan was very thorough. She was both patient and adept at explaining the ins-and-outs of my parents' estate planning documents. She made this difficult process so easy!

Very Professional
We first found out about Manya when she was speaking at an event for ex-pat Canadians residing in California. Her knowledge of U.S./Canadian estate planning issues was evident. Although we currently live and work in the U.S., most of our family still resides in Canada. Manya made sure we structured our plan to avoid any future tax issues, while ensuring our estate would pass to our family members in Canada. We live in Northern California. Ms. Natan and her team made the process of working remotely seamless and easy. We would highly recommend Manya and her team for anyone in need of estate planning. Thank you Mana

Great service!
Thank you to Ms. Natan and the SSS Legal Team for helping us get our affairs in order! We were referred to Ms. Natan to assist us in establishing a joint revocable trust. We each had individual trusts but following our marriage, we wanted to establish a joint trust for us both. Our situation had some complexity due to our blended family. We each had two children from prior marriages. We wanted to make sure to provide for each other, as well as our respective children. Ms. Natan was knowledgeable and easy to work with. We appreciate her efforts in making sure all of our assets were appropriately accounted for and protected. J.W. & D.G.

Great Service!
Manya Deva Natan, Esq. and her team at SSS Legal and Consultancy Services were great. We were referred to her because of our family’s international ties. (I am originally from Canada and my wife is from Mexico, but we are both living in California). Ms. Natan was responsive, thorough, and easy to work with. She explained the process clearly and made sure that we understood that we needed to title our accounts in the name of the trust in order for it to be effective with regards to those assets. I would highly recommend Ms. Natan and her office to anymore in need of estate planning services.

Excellent Restatement Under Time Pressure
We had been planning to do a restatement of our trust during the summer months, when, at the start of the year, one of us learned we needed to go in for surgery. This seemed to leave us with no choice but to do a quick amendment and postpone the full restatement until later. This patchwork approach would have meant a duplication of effort and a significant waste of time in the long run. In order to avoid this, our financial advisor approached Ms. Natan and her team at SSS Legal and Consultancy Services, presented our situation to her, and asked if she could help. Ms. Natan rose to the challenge beautifully, completing a full restatement and finishing the job a week before the scheduled surgery date. And she did all this without in any way compromising quality. In fact, she was able significantly to untangle and simplify the rather complex internal logic of the earlier trust and make the new one a much more accurate reflection of our current outlook and needs. Throughout the project, Ms. Natan was focused, attentive, painstakingly thorough, and yet easy to work with. A.D. and E.D.

International & U.S. Estate Planning
I was referred to Manya Deva Natan a few months ago when my mother and I both needed to update and revise our estate plans. There is an international component to our planning and Manya was able to quickly identify several issues of concern and suggest solutions which we have implemented that will greatly simplify asset management in the future. Her attention to detail, her comprehensive understanding of estate tax law, and the ease of dealing with her and her office provided us with great peace of mind. Manya is courteous, professional, and a pleasure to work with. I am happy to give her my unqualified endorsement.

Grateful Client
Manya Deva Natan, Esq., her team and SSS Legal and Consultancy Services were wonderful to work with. My father needed to amend and restate his trust. He also needed to decide how best to divide his business. Ms. Natan was patient and persistent in helping him determine the best way to proceed with his estate planning. She also assisted him in transferring his out-of-state property into the trust. She helped us understanding the importance of having a fully-funded revocable trust so that we could avoid probate. We appreciate the time and attention that Ms. Natan and her team spent on our matter. We would absolutely recommend SSS Legal and Consultancy Services to anyone in need of estate planning. Thank you!
