Customer Service Coupled with Expertise!
I am very impressed with the level of knowledge, detail and personal service I received from Marina Vinsky. She made the process painless and asked all of the questions that I did not even think of. She made great recommendations and really explained all of the options until I was comfortable and understood the result of my choices. She also let me know when to contact her in the future and what else I needed to do so the trust would be complete. I appreciate her knowledge of everything required in this area. She loves it and it shows.

Marina Vinsky - Client Review
My partner and I found Marina through our employer's EAP program. Marina worked with us to produce a Living Trust, and she made the experience a very easy and enjoyable one. Most importantly, she was very sensitive to our needs and ended up serving as a true coach for me. She guided me through some of the difficult decisions that had to be made and did so with a high degree of empathy and professionalism. What began as the fulfillment of a goal to secure my financial matters has morphed into a solid and ongoing relationship. I now proudly say 'my attorney.' I have had others in the past, but Marina is now my 'go to' person. We will be working on a pre-adoption process next, and I have every confidence that Marina will provide the same level of excellent service.

Highly Recommend
Whilst finalizing a divorce, I was referred to Marina Vinsky with regard to creating a Revocable Trust, Advance Health Care Directive, Power of Attorney and a Will. Marina is extremely knowledgeable in all of these areas and I would highly recommend her professional services to anyone in need of the above.

Marina makes things simple and easy to understand
Marina clearly explained what my options were, their advantages and disadvantages, and how to get what I wanted. Then she made it happen -- quickly, competently, and on short notice.
