My Husband & myself recently attended the Estate Planning Work Shop by Attorney Eden Rose Brown.
Attorney Brown provided valuable information for all levels of service, the requirements & laws pertaining to planning, preparing documents and ongoing oversight & review! However the manner of presentation & examples exceptional illustrations & understood!! In other words brought to non Attorney level of understanding & how to proceed with planning and documents.
We feel fornuate to have access to such outstanding Attorney & entire Law firm. Our plan, is to have Initial Design Meeting in near future.

I attended Eden Rose Brown’s trust workshop last weekend. It was excellent. She described complicated issues in ways that were easy to understood and made the material interesting with stories of actual cases. I was bummed that she could not take my father’s complicated California case, but she spoke with attendees during lunch and after the seminar too. She recommended a qualified Southern California attorney she knows personally and he provided me with good advice. I definitely recommend her.

My husband and I attended Edens class on estate planning. Man what an eye opener!
Her depth of knowledge was amazing. She had us thinking of issues we had never thought of. Her examples were real life ones.
I recommended her to both our kids and my personal clients. Everyone needs to spend some time with her. It truly was Life Changing.

Eden knows the subject cold and is happy to educate us and repeat things as necessary. She solicits our input but also prompts us in areas we might not be familiar with or have thought about. Her communication skills are excellent -- always making the effort to be crystal clear. Her approach is warm and friendly, and she respects our pace, our hesitations, and our uncertainties as they arise. She is impeccably organized, as is her office staff. She delivers a rich and rewarding experience, as well as a practical one, every time.

I called for a consultation. The first person i talked to was very nice and said a paralegal would be calling me back. The paralegal called me back promptly and she was also very pleasant. After I told her my situation she informed me that I needed a different type of lawyer and gave me a refferal and provided me the phone number. My short experience with each person at the firm was super pleasant. I wish for each consultation to be so pleasant.

We first met Eden at her Family Matters Workshop and were impressed with the easy-to-understand presentation, and her knowledge of the options and nuances of estate planning.
After making the decision to retain Eden, she very clearly and concisely explained various choices involved in planning our estate, and helped us make educated decisions about our plan.
She designed a customized plan based on our specific desires, needs and goals. In setting up a charitable plan as part of our Revocable Living Trust, she offered several helpful suggestions and told us of charitable organizations that met our legacy objectives.
Eden showed a passion for her work and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have found her and her staff. They made what seemed an overwhelming task surmountable. They are all consummate professionals. Their expertise, patience and helpfulness made the document preparation process a pleasant experience.
The personnel, process and results far exceeded our expectations.

Eden was excellent. She took the time to get to know us and our specific needs in estate planning. She gave us examples and clearly explained why she recommended various actions. Eden goes well beyond just writing a will. She is well versed in setting up trusts and has the staff to help execute those documents. Our plan has 5 years reviews to change anything needed. We have never been so organized. Our children will have everything in one spot and not have to hunt or guess.

We have a fairly complicated estate planning situation and Eden and her staff helped us work things through to a very satisfactory result, and a plan that meets our needs and that we can age with. Eden is a very good questioner and listener, with years of experience she brings to bear on the situation, bringing up many potential issues I never would have thought of. I appreciate her flat fee approach vs. billing for any time spent. It may have amounted to the same thing, but it was nice to be able to discuss things without feeling like the meter was ticking.

My parents, who are also clients of the Eden Rose Brown firm, purchased a "Grad" package to provide me with some basic legal documents before I left for college. Although I'm only 18 and don't have much in my estate yet, Mrs. Brown and her staff treated me with respect and patience, and were genuinely interested in learning what was important to me. She explained that as I was 18, I was an adult and my parents no longer had the legal right to get information or have control over my accounts or my medical care in case I got injured or sick or died. To make sure my parents had control if something happened to me, Mrs. Brown prepared a simple trust, power of attorney, medical waiver and health care directive as part of the prepaid package. She also included a Docubank service that provides immediate access to my legal documents 24 hours a day, even if I'm out of the country. The medical team at my school was really shocked when I handed them my advance directive and HIPAA waiver during orientation! They said they wished more students were that prepared when they come to college. I enjoyed working with Mrs. Brown and her team, and I appreciate that she provided both me and my parents with peace of mind while I'm away at school.

While recognizing and researching the need for estate planning, my husband and I were impressed with the philosophy, ratings and awards, and website of the firm of Eden Rose Brown. After making our initial contact, we attended one of Eden's free, three hour Family Matters New Client Workshops. Eden's passion, expertise, personal interest, and experiences were evident as she clearly and engagingly explored and communicated the various aspects and choices involved in estate planning. Eden was genuine and friendly, and stayed long after the class ended to answer questions and talk with individuals. We are amazed and encouraged by the wisdom and excellence of her counsel and feel much more knowledgeable and informed as we proceed with developing our estate plan. After attending Eden's presentation, we are confident that her law office will provide the most personalized, comprehensive and professional estate planning support available.
