Conscientious and caring team
Rebecca and her entire staff went above and beyond to help me receive the documentation I was entitled to, in order to create a trust for our daughter. I felt that because we built a relationship first, it then made the entire process much more fluid and personable. I would highly recommend Goldfarb & Luu for any estate or trust planning needs! They are professional, courteous, and prompt.

Caring, knowledgeable, efficient!
When my dad got sick we didn't know what to do. His finances were a mess and we couldn't afford the care he needed. We had spoken to social workers, advocates, the hospital, the rehab facility, but no one could give us clear instructions on what to do... only advice on how to fill out some forms. We were referred by an advocate to a different lawyer who wanted to charge us before they even knew if they could help us. Not even 5 minutes of time... We were referred by a friend to Rebecca and Dinh. We did some research before calling them and they had so much good feedback on every website. We were skeptical at first. How can a law firm have all 5 stars and such rave reviews? We met with both of them for an extremely detailed overview of what we needed to do and further information needed. They were kind, calm and clear. They didn't rush us and I could tell that they care about their clients. They sprung into action immediately because some of the forms we needed were due within a few weeks. Their communication was constant by phone and email. All of their other staff were also smart, helpful and efficient, especially Anita. Despite our case being very complicated, we were able to achieve all the goals we discussed by the deadlines required. We feel so lucky that we were able to find Golfarb & Luu and recommend them to anyone looking for an elder attorney!!!

A lawyer's lawyer
Rebecca reviewed my old trust which needed updating. I really was so impressed by her and Dinh's professionalism, attention to detail. While calm and laid back, Rebecca is a meticulous professional. The trust documents were beautifully prepared. I was very impressed and happy with the work. I'm also happy to know she and her firm will be there for me and my family when I will need in the future. I feel secure with her as my estate lawyer.

Wills, trusts, estate planning, advance directive
She is very knowledgeable and thorough. Details are never amiss. She is insightful and understanding which helps guide you through family considerations - an essential element in estate planning. Although estate planning is not something that most look forward to, she is so pleasant and uplifting, she makes the process much easier and even enjoyable. Her advanced directive guidance and document is amazing - helping you to set forth what it is you want and making sure the documentation supports your wishes. The process truly helps you recognize what you would like to have happen at that stage of your life. You are in good hands. She will stand up for you and protect you. You can count on her.

Planning ahead !
We found Rebecca most valuable to help us plan our Will and Advance Directive. She knew all the right questions that we never would have thought of on our own. In addition to being a fine person we found her to be most professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend her firm and services.

Choosing the best team for our estate planning and trust issues...
Both Dinh and Rebecca were able to help us through what seemed like an overwhelming process. I can't imagine trusting another firm with such personal and important information. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly that these two professional and yet warm women. You feel like family from the minute you walk in the office.
