I contacted Attorney Ziskin to discuss my mother’s trust and estate.
Attorney Ziskin put me at ease at once. He was professional, thorough, warm, and genuinely interested in making sure my needs were met. He helped me navigate through all my questions until I had a clear understanding of my next steps.
I sincerely appreciate the assistance Attorney Ziskin provided and would absolutely recommend him.

Attorney Ziskin is a shining star in the elder care law community. I found him to be very knowledgeable and compassionate about my particular circumstance. He is an extremely good listener and has a wealth of experience and expertise in navigating and understanding all the complexities that come with difficult and unique issues that can arise while trying to protect elderly loved ones. I highly recommend Ken.

Attorney Ziskin was extremely helpful. He was efficient with my time and addressed the property tax assessment concerns in a timely manner, communicating with the assessors office about my issue and obtaining confirmation that vital forms where received and set for review. Kenneth was sensitive to my need to economize and was generous by charging fairly and being considerate and professional, clarifying my options to seek alternative cost saving services pending the complexity of the case.

Ken Ziskin is thoughtful of my circumstances and sensitive to my feelings. He was amazing at protecting my interests during my life as much as after life. I am so happy to have chosen him to represent my estate. He provided me with documents as well an e-copy of my documents. His wife, Hinda, supports the whole effort and is there to help. I appreciate them both.

I have been reading Ken Ziskin’s articles in the Apartment Owners Association magazine for a number of years and was always intrigued and impressed by the topics and his knowledge. Ken, and his assistant, Hinda, sponsored a seminar on Estate Planning for Property Owners which I recently attended. Again, there was excellent information presented of the do’s and don’ts on a number of topics such as how to hold title, appropriate insurance coverage, pros and cons of using LLCs, Capital Gains Bypass Trust, and protecting heirs from a variety of issues.
As a follow up to the seminar, my wife and I scheduled a free consultation with Ken where we reviewed our situation and discussed a number of points relative to our needs. We already have a trust which Ken was kind to review. Since we have no children our Estate Planning is simpler than most and Ken said that while there would be some benefit to rewriting the trust, the benefit would be negligible. We also discussed several other areas which could stand further examination by my wife and me.
Our needs today don’t necessitate significant changes, but it was very reassuring to have a review by a competent, honest attorney. And when our needs change (and they always do!) Ken will be first on our list to consult. I would without hesitation recommend Ken to anyone exploring Estate Planning. You will be well advised!

Was referred (more specifically, highly recommended for his expertise in property tax situations and successes with other AOA property owners) to Ken Ziskin by CA AOA. Ken's consultation appropriately and succinctly guided us. He even directed us so that we probably wouldn't need legal representation. If all doesn't work out with the assessor's office, he offered to take our case. Would highly recommend his services.

Many years ago I drew up an inexpensive trust and it had none of the provisions I desired today. I went to one of Kenneth Ziskin's "Apartment Owners Association" lectures and decided I definitely needed to make changes to my existing trust. After consulting with Ken, I found out many of the provisions in my existing trust were outdated and not enforceable.
Ken helped me make decisions about issues I had never even thought about, and he really cared about my concerns and making my new trust work for my goals, even though he wanted to stress the importance of tax consequences.
I got an additional perspective on how to structure the trust from Hinda, Ken's wife who very efficiently helps Ken. I am divorced and single with children of my own and an extended family. (As with many people, it's complicated).
I would thoroughly recommend Kenneth Ziskin for Estate Planning, Wills and Trusts.
