Review of attorney Cloyd E. Havens II
Mr. Havens took the time to explain to my wife I every step in the process of preparing our family trust. He answered all of our questions and even furnished answers to several questions that we had not thought of. He was patient and thorough. The documents were prepared accurately the first time so we did not have to return for corrections or changes. We consider Mr. Havens the most honest Attorney at Law that we know of in California. We would recomment him to anyone needing his services.

Cloyd Havens review
We used Cloyd to prepare our family trust and were very pleased with his advice and and down to earth guidance throughout the whole process. We went back for an update of the Trust and that went equally well.

Review of Cloyd Havens II
I found that Mr. Havens was very knowledgeable and efficient in my dealings with him. He explained things thoroughly so that I understood and all of my questions were answered. He was able to work within very tight time constraints the first time I needed to use him and has done so every time I have needed to use his services. His trustee seminars are full of information as well.
