Best Estate Planning Lawyer
We had such a positive experience setting up our estate planning with Vidhya Babu. Vidhya was recommended to me from a local facebook group. My husband and I went into the process pretty much clueless and she was kind and patient in explaining all of our options but also making it as painless as possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Excellent Estate Planning Attorney
Vidya made the estate planning process easy for us. She clearly explained concepts and patiently answered questions. I was also impressed with her technical skills - she was able to quickly address our nuanced issues after another estate attorney was not able to do so.

A Great Attorney
Ten years ago, Vidhya developed a living trust for my wife and I and we remain in contact. I still go to her for any questions or concerns we may have regarding our trust or estate planning and she's always very responsive and helpful. If she doesn't have an immediate answer she will get back to us on a timely basis.

Peace of Mind
Vidhya was highly recommended by a friend. I did not have a will or trust because the task was too daunting. Vidhya's explanations made the process simple, and she is candid and knowledgeable. She was thorough and explained that institutions can interpret language about ownership in different ways. She suggested a portability return, and my tax person agreed. She responded to all my questions and was available to meet by my schedule. In addition to having a professional demeanor, she is fun to work with, and I enjoyed my meetings with her.

Excellent estate planning attorney
My husband and I feel very lucky we had the opportunity to hire Vidhya Babu for estate planning. She helped us create a robust estate plan which included reviewing outdated documents and redoing them to reflect our current needs. She has the qualities we were looking for in a top-notch attorney: knowledgeable, organized, efficient, and responsive. Her insightfulness and communication skills are also impressive. We highly recommend Vidhya Babu!

Superb estate attorney
I've had an excellent experience with Ms. Babu as my estate attorney. I went to her to repair an estate package which had been poorly designed by a previous attorney. She asked insightful, pertinent, careful questions, making sure she understood what I was trying to achieve. From there she made excellent suggestions for simplifying the instrument tangle created by my previous attorney, leaving me with clear, straightforward instruments which I'm confident achieve what I want. Her communication is excellent and her follow-up has nearly always been virtually immediate: she's always responded to emails the same day, every time. The office staff are friendly, efficient and professional. I'm very pleased and I recommend her unreservedly.

Vidhay Babu is an outstanding attorney
Vidhya Babu is very knowledgable and highly competent in her area. When my husband and I were doing our estate planning, Ms. Babu helped us sorting out the particulars of our case. She was very helpful in guiding us through the process. She asks the necessary questions, thereby helping us to avoid pitfalls while enabling us to clarify our intentions. She is also very responsive. Whenver we called with questions, she was immediately available to answer our query. We recommend Vidhya Babu to anyone in need of legal services. We have recommended her to a number of our friends. Everyone we recommended to her has been very satisfied with her service.
