Fastidious and Friendly!
I needed to update my trust, will, health directive, etc. The attorney I used previously was extremely unresponsive so I asked friends and co-workers for recommendations. One of my colleagues recommended Yuliya with the most specific, and magnificent, praise - and I'm so glad she did. Yuliya was everything I wanted, and better than I could have anticipated. She communicated clearly, set timelines which she always met, and gave me much better advice on estate planning than I had received in 10 years of my "relationship" with the other attorney. Yuliya is also extremely nice, and easy to talk to. And the icing on the cake? Her prices are quite reasonable compared to other attorneys doing the same sort of work. She is absolutely the best!

Trust attorney/estate planning
Mrs. Yuliya Magomedov is a terrific trust attorney. She was incredibly patient and explained every step of the process in details. She worked around my needs and she did my trust which was more complicated than I anticipated. She's a caring person as well. She helped me to sort through all difficult decisions that arise during the process, she gave me incredible insights. I'm deeply thankful to Yuliya. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a trust or estate planning service

Very Knowledgeable, Well Organized, and Very Professional
I first met Yuliya when she was a customer at my business center in San Francisco. When it came time to update my estate planning, I turned to Yuliya for a trust, will, health care directive, etc. Yuliya started with a comprehensive questionnaire, from which she accurately and quickly determined my needs, and then created the legal framework the final documents I needed in a very timely and professional manner. There was none of the irritating nickel and dime petty stuff and wasted time so often prevalent with many attorneys. I am a very satisfied customer and can highly recommend her services.

Professional and knowledgeable. Great service!
I went to Yuliya to get a Revocable Trust created because I had recently bought the property and was recommended to her. Prior to meeting with Yuliya I had no idea what a trust was. After our meeting, I knew everything about it. She is very professional and knowledgeable in her field. She knows everything you need about creating a trust, how they work, and the ins and outs. When working with Yuliya to get my trust created, she made it very easy. We used an online portal to post our documents and timeline. I was also given a few lengthy PDFs to fill out and basically kept it very simple for me as a client. I'm very happy with this and would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you!

Real Estate Plannig
We just did a revocable living trust with Yuliya. When we started this process, we were in the dark about many things it involves. Yuliya made everything possible to make the process smooth and clear. She was highly professional, attentive to detail, and very friendly dealing with all types of questions we asked. Yuliya provides top-notch services in a timely manner that can satisfy all clients.

Estate Planning Services
My wife and I consulted with and hired the services of Yuliya Magomedov for our Estate Planning. She is a very professional Attorney and explained and guided us through the entire procedure of Estate Planning. Our process was smooth, clear-cut, and efficiently done - until the official signing and she expertly explained again the contents of the Estate Package original documents which now belongs to us as the Trustees.

Estate Planning - Highly Recommended!
My wife and I just redid our Living Trust in late March 2018. Our point of contact was Yuliya Magomedov. From start to finish Yuliya was professional, courteous and extremely efficient. The initial contact was a done over the phone. All subsequent interaction was completed either by phone or email. This worked well for us as we were able to ask questions or respond to questions on our time availability. Yuliya was very patient and answered all of our questions that arose during the preparation of our trust. The final signing of documents was completed in M & C's office on Noriega St. which was very convenient for us. We highly recommend Magomedov and Cronin for your trust and estate planning needs.

Terrific Will/Trust Preparation - Great Lawyer
Short backstory: I've known for years that I should get a will/trust prepared. But being an attorney myself, I am very critical about the attorneys I hire. Also, plenty of good old-fashioned procrastination. Anyway, I finally committed to get it done. So I asked around, getting several recommendations from other attorneys and friends. I emailed and spoke with a couple firms, but for whatever reason I still wasn't moved to hire them. (More procrastination?) Then, Magomedov & Cronin was recommended to me by my financial advisor. Because of how much I like and trust my advisor (Sean Kenmore @ Affinity Capital Advisors in Berkeley), I decided to inquire. After a few emails and calls with Yuliya, I was convinced she was the one to prepare these documents for my family. She combines professionalism and solid legal knowledge with a very approachable and easy-to-deal-with style. She was also quite effective at being gentle but persistent at reminding me to follow through with providing her the necessary information. Once I got her everything, there was a brief meeting to sign documents, and we were done. Hallelujah! And she still periodically reminds when there is something I need to do to ensure the trust is secure. Awesome. So of course, I highly recommend Yuliya and her firm, Magomedov & Cronin.

A pleasure to work with
We worked with Yuliya when we were trying to put together a plan for our estate. Our situation was compounded by the fact that we had very little time to do it in since we were going out of the country, and we wanted to have the estate plan in place before that. Yuliya was willing to work with us on this tight schedule; she has explained the process, the terms, the concepts in detail, patiently walked us through exactly the kind of decisions we needed to make so that by the time we had to put those decisions on paper, we were confident in what we wanted, and it took very little time. The fact that she was always available to answer questions was great since not only would it enable us to proceed, but also would help us avoid making (costly and untimely) mistakes. For instance, we had called her from the County's Clerk office to make sure we were getting the correct documents, and, sure enough, we were about to get something else entirely, which would have delayed the process and made us miss our deadline. She is incredibly organized and efficient, very knowledgeable and professional, but also very personable and easy to talk to. We feel really fortunate that we got to work with Yuliya and would highly recommend her services!

Strongly Recommend
Magomedov & Cronin helped us prepare and execute an estate plan. Both Yuliya and Aisling are incredibly professional and personable. They communicated clearly and answered thoughtfully and thoroughly all the questions we had (and we had many!). As a result, we felt we were able to make the most informed decision for our situation. They are also very organized, conscientious and have great attention to details. I would recommend them highly.

Estate Planning
I hired Magomedov & Cronin, LLP for my estate planning needs. The entire process of estate planning can be daunting. Yuliya and her office made it simple and straightforward for me. Yuliya patiently walked me through all the different documents necessary for a comprehensive and complete estate plan, including AHCD, DPA, Trust, Will, HIPPA, etc., Seemingly, over and over again, with willingness, she explained clearly and succinctly the importance of each document, how they all fit together, when they should be used, and how. She went above and beyond when I mentioned the possibility of buying property out of state by locating and recommending attorneys I could work with.

Trustworthy, Dependable & Kind
In life.. things happen.. and it can be confusing, especially if you are injured. Pain and confusion are not a good mix, but for us.. thankfully.. Yuliya helped bring the clarity we needed. Sometimes lawyers can seem a little stand offish, but Yuliya treats us warmly, reassuring us that our best interest is her priority. She is always calm, understanding and listens to what we are saying.. guiding us in the right direction. My health and my well being are important to Yuliya, and I know this because every time I speak with her, she asks how I am feeling, how I am doing.. genuinely caring, not just about the case.. but about me. In a sea of forms and questions, Yuliya brings perspective. She separates the essential from the non essential, puts things in order of priority and helps us understand each step of the way. No question is too small for her.. or an inconvenience. Her goal is to make sure that we understand everything.. completely and clearly. Yuliya is accessible. She makes herself available to us in numerous ways, from her work phone, email and even cell phone! Giving us the comfort we need should any questions arise. In today's world it is very hard to put your trust into someone completely, but we have no reservations in placing our trust in Yuliya. She has proven time and time again, that her passion is helping others understand and navigate the confusing world of forms, questions, deadlines and law. When a letter is about to arrive in the mail regarding the case, Yuliya lets you know ahead of time, what it is.. what it means.. and what we have to do. Circumventing any problems or questions we may have. Can i tell you how thankful we are for that type of attention?? I am a housewife, with 3 children and I home school.. my life is hectic enough..add in the pain.. and my life is stressful! For Yuliya to care enough about me to let me know ahead of time what to expect.. instead of me calling her.. me asking questions..etc.. is a blessing! It's just one of the many personal touches she adds to reaffirm she truly cares. We believe that Yuliya is knowledgeable and confident in her abilities. It is this knowledge and confidence that brings us peace regarding our case. The character and integrity she has shown is refreshing. Our experience is that Yuliya is dedicated to truth and justice. Her work ethic has shown she will leave no stone unturned to bring the wrong and unjust to light.
