Excellent attorney.,
Probably one of nicest and most friendly attorneys I have met. Very easy to talk with and answered all our questions. We hired her to draw up our trust. We can rest at ease that it is done.

Efficient & Caring
When faced with the probate process we were completely at sea. She helped us through every step from the opening of probate to the final disposition. Her small office allowed for fast personal attention to any question or concern you may have. We could not have asked for better legal representation.
Response from Leah Larkin April 29, 2019
Thank you for these kind words, Roxann & Herb. It was a pleasure working with you both. I appreciate you trusting my office with your family's probate matters. -Leah

Attorney Leah Larkin is the best forget the rest. She is brilliant and powerful in what she does. I used her twice in the past, as my probate attorney. I am about to retain her again for another family matter. No matter how far you have to drive to her office, you won't be sorry. She takes her time with you, and is very caring of your situation.

Thoroughly impressed
I currently reside in Texas and had a California real estate matter that needed professional attention. Quite frankly, I found Leah Dixon on line and after speaking with her on the phone, retained her services. I was a bit nervous being out of state and not really knowing her. My nervousness was quickly put to rest as we moved forward with the matter. She kept me informed throughout, charged what she quoted, and delivered a successful resolution. I would definitely recommend her without hesitation.

Leah Dixon is competant, knowledgable and very trustworthy. I cannot say enough good things about her expertise. She has real 'heart' for her clients and will always do the very best job. Other people I know have hired Leah and are very happy with her representation of them.

Fantastic and Smart Probate and Trust Attorney
Leah is competent, bright and on the ball. I first hired her about three years ago personally to update our living trust. I own a real estate office in the Inland Empire that lists lot of properties that are in probates or trusts. There are often complex legal and title issues that need to be unraveled before the properties can be sold.The only person I call or recommend to my clients is Leah Dixon.

Real Estate & Loan Agent
I have such a high level of respect and admiration for Leah Dixon. She is smart, knows the law, and is determined to get what her clients need. Leah also has compassion for her clients. I have gone to Leah for probate & estate legal guidance, done business with Leah and worked with other people that have been clients of Leah’s. In all aspects of working with her, I have seen the same outcome – Hard work, happy clients and successful results. I suggest that anybody else who wants success as an outcome, work with Leah Dixon. With Leah Dixon, comes success.

Client Review
While visiting my mother this summer, I discovered that she didn't have a Durable Power of Attorney for healthcare. I made an appt with Leah. She went over the things that she thought my Mom needed and answered all the questions we had about her estate plan. We decided on doing a trust and durable power of attorneys for both healthcare and finances for my Mom. She explained all this legal stuff in terms that we could understand. Leah and her staff were easy to work with and very knowledgeable in estate planning. I would highly recommend her.

Very Knowledgable and Professional attorney
I had Mrs. Dixon draft up a Durable power of attorney for healthcare for me. She was very professional and was able to answer all my questions. She was very patient with me, as I really interested in understanding the process. It was always easy to get a hold of her and she always returned my calls. My husband and I are needing to set up Trusts and we will definitely use Mrs. Dixon again.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Probate Consultation
I contacted Leah's office seeking an in-person consultation, and was told the fee for a half hour is $275. There were no appts. available while I was in town so I agreed to a Zoom meeting. I would be Emailed details and instructions beforehand. Didn't happen. My phone rings at the time I was supposed to have the Zoom meeting. It was Leah who just wanted to do a phone call. I asked a couple general questions, but really got no answers, I got options. I was seeking direction, but she had no idea of the specifics of the case; which would have been necessary to properly advise. Leah disagreed. She insisted that a 23 minute cold call is the same price as an in person half hour consultation. If I had learned one thing in our conversation, I could at least have that. But I didn't, I was more confused about how to proceed than ever. When responding to my concerns, she was cold and uncaring. The exact opposite of all the other reviews. I wish my experience could have been 5 stars. In the end, I paid her $275 but feel it was a total waste, and very surprised at the unprofessional behavior everywhere I turned.

Response from Leah Larkin September 20, 2021
Victoria, I’m sorry to hear you found no value in our consultation. Before we ended our call, I did ask you if you had any further questions and you did not. Additionally, I followed up with you and ask if you had additional questions or specific questions or if I could help you any further and you didn’t respond. Handling a formal probate administration without an attorney is an overwhelming task and your frustration with the process isn’t surprising. When we spoke you had general questions about how to proceed in your administration. I’ve been practicing probate for over 17 years and I know the next steps for your case (or any case) without seeing your specific documents. You told me where you were and asked what to do next. I answered with specificity, even giving you the contact information for other professionals who could help you with your next steps. Unfortunately, I don’t think you liked the answers to some of your questions. It’s my duty to be honest and not sugar coat the process. Probate is complex and, as I said in our call, having a half-hour consultation will not give you the knowledge to handle the legal administration of a case pro per (without an attorney). If all the probate legal questions could be answered in a half hour or even hour consultation (whether it be in person, zoom, or telephone), then probate wouldn’t need specialist attorneys to manage the demands and specifics of the courts and probate code. I wish you the best of luck and if you have more specific questions about your case, feel free to respond to my email or give me a call back and I’d be willing to assist you. Take care.
