Superb, extremely knowledgeable and ethical attorney
Mr. Kassabian exceeded my expectations. From the moment I consulted with him, I felt at ease and knew I found the right attorney for me. He took the time to explain the importance of an estate plan. He was patient, understanding and caring when answering my questions. He was thorough and helped me navigate different scenarios. Because I have a high net worth estate, he carefully explained the consequences of estate, gift, property and income taxes. He was also able to assist me with my real estate and corporate assets. He created an estate plan that protected my assets for my loved ones. Because of his real estate and corporate transactions experience, I also retained him to handle other matters not related to my estate plan. I strongly recommend Mr. Kassabian. He's one of the best attorneys I know.
