Excellent estate planning guidance
We worked with Derek to set up a living family trust and found him to be an affable, knowledgable and very patient attorney. He explained various tax state and federal laws in a simple enough way for us to understand what the trust structure would be. He was able to set up a trust in such a way to protect our family from high state and federal taxes esp. around inheritance and estate taxes. Would strongly recommend him for tax and estate planning. He does appear to be quite busy, so it helps if you contact his PA/staff occasionally to make sure the planning meetings are arranged as discussed. But that was not a major hassle, given how nice our experience was with Derek.

Excellent Estate Lawyer
Mr Jensen was able to help me sort out the details of my fathers convoluted Sestate and establish power of attorney services. The advise was accurate and extremely helpful.

Not responsive
My wife and I met with Derek for initial consolation for estate planning. The meeting was great and it seemed clear that Derek knows his stuff. We left that meeting with a plan that Derek would provide a quote and a timeline for the work that needed to be done. Unfortunately, that was the last productive contact that we had. It's been about 6 weeks since that meeting, and despite multiple requests, we have not received a quote or an estimate of when we would get one... Not sure what's going on.. Dereks Admin is Rosalie. She is nice, but keeps giving me non-commital run-around. I said that if Derek just does not want to do this work, just let us know, but all we get is "I'll check with Derek and get back to you" ?? Strange..... We are really disappointed because we have been searching for an estate lawyer that we felt good about... Thought we had found one.
