I spoke with Mr. Chavers on the phone regarding estate protection and other options to consider. Mr. Chavers was very pleasant and took his time to explain and help me understand our options. If we decide to move forward, we will definitely use his services.

Herb Chavers is one of the most compassionate and skilled estate planning attorneys I know. We have worked on many cases together and Herb has my utmost trust and confidence. I would entrust my own family to Herb's care.

Herb Chavers helped us resolve all California trust issues for two successor trustees (family members) located outside the state, so all communications were by phone and email. My initial impression when I interviewed Herb by phone was that he was knowledgeable, was able to clearly explain the issues to be dealt with, and open to discussion about his background and fee structure. In our case, there were real estate issues to be resolved in addition to all the other trust issues. Heirs of the trust were located in several states. Herb guided the trustees through the process. Where there were actions that the trustees could execute on their own behalf, he gave us clear instructions, which reduced our legal fees. Herb and his staff were always available for questions and responded in a timely manner. Herb kept us informed and up to date on all matters that he handled. He completed the work for us in 2013. As shown in our ratings, there were no negatives and no surprises in our relationship with Herb Chavers, which is fairly uncommon in most legal matters. I strongly recommend him.

Mr. Chavers has been a great help to me on several occasions. His compassion and willingness to help others is evident each time he answers a colleagues difficult or unusual question. His help is always mere moments away. His knowledge in the area of Estate Planning has both incredible depth, and breadth. If you are old enough to remember the E.F. Hutton commercials, when Mr. Chavers speaks, I always listen! I endorse this lawyer. Dan Powell
