This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

Cared enough to give it their all during our time of need.
Gina and Jack truly went above and beyond on very short notice to prepare a Transfer on Death Deed for my sister in failing health. She even took the time, without an appointment, to explain the different types of deeds with me and why this one was the best option. Always professional, kind and responsive. I live in Nevada, but have property in California. The law firm has a client for life. I'll be back if I need an attorney for California assets.
