I first met with David while working with my father on his estate and trust (eldest son responsibility). My Dad was very pleased with the years of work David did for he and my Mom, and it was fairly involved with out of state retirements; charitable donations, and several other matters. The brothers were reassured because of the meetings we had, and I know Dad has no concerns about his wishes or plans.
Because David is so thorough, clear in explaining what's going on, and imparts a strong sense of safety, knowledge and responsibility, my wife and I had David draw up our wills and set up a trust for our boys. If you have assets you want to share, both with family and hopefully philanthropically, take the time and the reasonable cost to have David set you up correctly.
A one size fits all template from the web isn't how I want my wishes delivered or my life's work shared.
And David is a funny guy. Extremely smart, and nice. I strongly recommend him and his team.

After my mother's sudden and unexpected death, a friend referred me to David. He was an invaluable resource to my family during a hectic, difficult time. He guided us through the probate process, providing clear, thorough information in a compassionate way. He is always reachable, gets back to clients quickly, and takes time to explain things. In the years since my mother died, I've worked with David to prepare a trust of my own. In short, I cannot recommend David highly enough to anyone looking for a probate or estate planning lawyer.

David prepared the estate plan for my husband and I that was quite complicated, dealing with properties in 2 states. He is very knowledgeable and listened to our requests. He guided us in the law, but left the final decisions up to us. We also needed some immediate action for some real estate transactions and David responded efficiently and correctly. Not to mention that he is a professional with a sense of humor.

I met Dave in 2008, and have used his services over the years. Dave is very knowledgeable and I trust his advice. He made the necessary tasks of completing wills, trusts, POA painless and fun. Dave is very professional, respectful and expedient. He explains matters in a way that is easily understood, and I feel comfortable working with him. I recommend his services highly.

I can't recommend David Brown highly enough. He has helped me through complicated estate planning, setting up and revising a Trust. He has done everything expediently, professionally, and has explained everything thoroughly. He has excellent suggestions, as well.

David Brown has my highest praise and recommendation. As a member of the California Bar for over 50 years I am probably more critical of lawyers than most. David prepared a rather complicated Estate Plan for my wife and me. He impressed me with his broad, in depth knowledge of the law, his understanding of the pertinent issues and the information necessary to create a good Estate Plan. He was always courteous and timely as was his excellent staff.
He kept us fully informed throughout the process and was always completely responsive to any questions we had.

David Brown is an excellent attorney for wills, trusts, and probates. He has done legal work for us and a friend over the last 3+ years. During that time we have found him to be understanding and caring while at the same time to be professional and attentive to our needs. His vast experience and knowledge were invaluable in our estate planning.
Most recently he guided us and drew up our trust and will. He first provided us with a list of documents and information that we would need to start and then met with us to begin the process. He explained everything well and engaged us in thinking about the will and trust. We returned to his office when the papers were ready to be signed. Again we met with David and he carefully explained what each part of the document represented. His office staff is very efficient and professional as well. They answered questions or referred us to David when necessary.
We first had contact with David Brown when he was assisting an elderly friend with her trust. He was so kind and sympathetic to her needs. She trusted him completely. When she died David managed her estate wishes with systematic thoroughness meshed with kindness and gentleness. He always was available to answer questions or allay concerns.
We highly recommend David A. Brown.

David helped us with our will many years ago and with the passing of parents and dealing with that, we decided to establish a revocable trust. He was very efficient telling us exactly what we needed to bring for the preliminary meeting and then went through it with us step by step, explaining each section in terms we could understand. His easy going demeanor, sense of humor and professionalism made this a hassle free and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend him if you are in need of a great lawyer.

My husband and I hired David Brown to help us prepare a living trust. That process went very smoothly, and we were very happy with the services of Mr. Brown and his staff. Sometime later we had an issue involving selling a home with members of our extended family, and David provided an extremely helpful consultation on a short timeline. We highly recommend him.

My husband and I used Mr. Brown for estate planning. We were very please with his services that went above and beyond of what we thought we needed. He enlightened us in estate planning areas that we had never thought about and were very necessary for a thorough estate plan. Also, we did comparisons on the fees charged and found him to be reasonable and comparable to other attorneys. What we like most about him is that he appears to love and enjoy what he does for a living.
