I hired Kathryn to update my will/estate planning. Our timeline to make changes was only about two and one half weeks because I was traveling out of the country and wanted to finalize my estate details before I left. Without missing a beat, Kathryn's advice was professional yet friendly. Because of her knowledge of the law, she presented me with options that I could understand, so I could make personal choices and feel comfortable with my decisions. Her attention to detail was obvious as she followed through in a very timely manner and we were able to finalize my estate before I left the country. I have not hesitated to refer her to my friends and family. She is an excellent lawyer and nice person.

Kathryn Gapinski did a phenomenal job as my lawyer for estate planning. She explained everything in both legal language and how that translated into language that I could understand. Since Ms. Gapinski was so thorough I felt like the process of estate planning was as pleasant as it could be. She helped me feel comfortable by being very organized and accessible, she informed me of every step and I had input in each step. Again, if there was something I did not understand, Ms. Gapinski had easily accessible examples that made sense of why someone may make a choice either way. Ms. Gapinski was incredibly neutral while giving me the legal facts, but she also is very easy to work with because she has a professional sense of humor. I feel like my estate planning was created with me and my wishes and that I had every piece of information I needed to make an educated informed decision. I highly recommend the exceptional Kathryn Gapinski to anyone.

Kathryn is a very talented, well organized and thorough attorney who makes the estate planning process stress free and clear. She listens very carefully to your needs, and crafts the legal paperwork to fit them, rather than some standard template. She is patient, and tirelessly goes thru as many iterations as necessary to insure that the documents exactly reflect your needs. Finally, I am confident that my estate plan is now a complete functioning whole, with every detail covered thanks to Kathryn. I highly recommend her!
