Review Forrest Carlson
  • In Good Hands

    Posted by Gabriel

    I retained Forrest to help me divide a 401K plan between myself and my ex-wife after our divorce. I am an attorney myself but wanted the job done right and I wanted to be free of the emotional entanglements that this type of case would involve. Forrest was calm, patient, and resourceful. He took what could have been a very complicated and emotionally trying ordeal and made it very easy. I could not recommend him higher. THANK YOU FORREST!

    Forrest helped execute a full estate plan for my wife and I (Will, Healthcare directive, PoA, and PoA for Healthcare). Throughout the experience, including prior to the initial meeting, he was communicative about the details of the process. Once in initial consultation, he was attentive to our concerns and wishes, asked detailed and thorough questions, and was exceedingly professional. Each interaction with him was followed up with in a good level of detail, with Forrest always making himself available to answer further questions. And on the off chance that my wife and I forgot to contact him with necessary information, he would email polite reminders asking for the materials on a reasonable timescale.

    Beyond the courtesies and general professionalism, the documents produced through this interaction were clear, and carefully written. Certain details Forrest included in the documents are particularly forward thinking. This ranged from statements about the conditions in which they should be applied (as in the PoA, and Healthcare PoA), to well crafted and statements to alleviate the conscious of those acting as PoA or executing our Healthcare directives.

    With the combination of professional and conduct and forward thinking perspectives on law, Forrest is clearly a lawyer I will continue to trust and employ in the years to come.

  • Excellent in every respect

    I've hired Mr. Carlson for trademark registration and general work in corporate document updates and yearly corporate tasks. He is quick and thorough, with excellent communication and follow-through. He was especially good at making sure that I knew, before any payment was made, what my legal options were and how much each would cost, so there were no surprises.

    Mr. Carlson is also highly computer-literate. I have an online business and he quickly learned all of the moving parts and how the law would apply to them.

    I would (and will) absolutely use this attorney again, including for my personal will. From our discussions, it is clear that he is competent in a wide range of matters and does not hesitate to research any specific topic that he needs to understand more fully.

  • Attorney to be noticed!

    Mr. Carlson handled every moment with complete poise, intelligence with every curveball, and worked with my budget at the time. I had searched for over 5 months for the right attorney before a family member found him. Not one attorney worked with me the way that Mr. Carlson did. Every case has challenges, but I truly believe there is not one situation Forrest will not give his absolute best to. I do not write recommendations often, however, this professional deserves to be noticed and hired. I did in fact do well in my case but cases can be won and lost. You will be in fantastic hands!

  • Highly Misleading

    I don't really know how much I'm allowed to disclose on here, but I will say I was compelled to write a review based on how strongly I feel this attorney does not have the capability to get what his client requests assistance with handled. Furthermore, in reference to my case specifically, he completely misinformed me regarding what the outcome of hiring him would be. I genuinely feel that I could have handled my case better on my own, in addition to saving myself some money as well.

    Forrest Joseph Carlson’s response: “Thank you for your honest feedback. It is very important that all of my clients are satisfied with the services I provide. I will give careful consideration to what you have written and continue to strive to communicate clearly with all of my clients.”

    Forrest Carlson helped us through the process of our putting our wills together. We had no idea where to start, or what papers needed to be filled out, etc. Forrest walked us through each step of the process, he was patient and professional and we now have a very clear understanding of our estate plan. I shudder to think of what could have happened if anything happened to us before this plan was in place. We highly recommend Forrest, he has the knoweledge, the understanding, and the demeanor to help people will all of their legal needs.

  • Landlord-Tenant Dispute

    4.0 stars

    Posted by Peter

    Forrest was referred to me through a lawyer referral website, and he did an excellent job of representing me when my landlord launched a lawsuit against me. Despite not being in the same country as me, Forrest worked hard to defend me and keep me informed of the process and of all the costs and consequences involved. At one point, when Forrest believed that a judge had made a legal error, Forrest launched an appeal on his own time and expense.

    Forrest could have strung the process along as long as possible in order to maximize his profits, but instead he gave me a frank appraisal of the situation and the risks involved and help develop a solution that minimized the cost in both time and money.

    While the whole situation was unpleasant, Forrest was always professional and understanding and was the only decent part of the whole affair.

    I would recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.

  • The perfect help navigating foreclosure and tenant rights

    I rented a condo a few years ago only to have the owner foreclosed on. For months I tried to determine who the new owner was so that I could talk to them about my rental contract. I was just trying to do the right thing, but several banks and individuals contacted me claiming to be the owners, none of which could prove ownership. I was feeling pretty uncomfortable after talking to a few of these sketchy individuals, so I contacted Forrest for some help and he was AMAZING! He helped me understand my rights & options, as well as helping me avoid a few scams that came along. He also helped protect me from several liabilities, and all for a very reasonable price. His billing was always what we had agreed upon, and I was never surprised by any line-items. Additional Forrest was incredibly friendly, a fantastic communicator, and prompt in his responses and actions. I have never felt more at ease dealing with a lawyer. I’ve recommended him to family and friends for a wide variety of legal issues, and they’ve all been just as pleased as I am. THANKS FORREST!
