Stellar attorney, great human!
My experience with Allyson was an absolute pleasure! She is an incredibly well organized attorney who was professional AND personable thru all steps of the estate planning process. I can see how this experience could easily become overwhelming and confusing, but Allyson excelled at explaining everything and setting a pace that made it manageable. Additionally, the final document package was easy to navigate, precise, and included thoughtful resources and guidance to help simplify the process. Highly recommended!!

Committed to excellence!
Allyson has been there to help my clients with their estate planning needs. What I love about Allyson is how patient she is, explaining everything in simple terms that are easy to understand. When you deal with Allyson, she makes you feel like her friend and like family! She is trustworthy, honest and intelligent. I know without a shadow of a doubt, when I refer to her, my clients (often aging and vulnerable) will be in the best hands possible!

Expert Estate Attorney
My husband and I worked with Allyson Shepston when we decided to create our Estate plans and related documents. We had an initial consultation and were very impressed with Allyson's knowledge, along with how the process of working with her would flow. We hired her immediately and went through this process. Working with Allyson was seamless. From the consultation, we knew exactly what to expect and she prepared us on all information needed and decisions we would need to make. We felt completely confident in her knowledge and she was always professional and easy to talk with about our decisions. Allyson made the process run very smoothly and we are grateful to have her expertise as our Estate Attorney moving forward as well.

such a professional attorney
I am a local insurance agent / broker here in in Scottsdale, AZ. I have been sending my clients and family to Allyson Shepston for the last couple years and I couldn't be happier with her service. She is professional, caring and knows estate planning inside and out. I higher recommend Allyson to anyone looking for great service!

Consultation
I saw Allyson concerning possible personal trust account for me. She was very helpful in helping me understand how they work and also gave me advise of working on my finances. She advised me to meet with a financial advisor, which I did. This is starting me in the right direction in getting my life in order. Loved meeting her and working with her.

Good Experience
My husband and I met with Allyson recently (April 31, 2017) to review and update our trust. She was warm and engaging, and spent an hour and a half with us reviewing our current documents. We explained to her what we were trying to accomplish and she let us know that our current trust was up-to-date and would cover all that we wanted to do. She would not except any money, calling our 1 1/2 hour session a consultation. We told her, of course, that if anything changed we would seek her expert help at that time. Like so many others we were wary of lawyers, but Allyson was an unexpectedly pleasant surprise.

Simply the best
Having the title of Lawyer carries a negative expectations and often the punch line to many bad jokes. Allyson will give you the opposite - her knowledge, experience and "bed side manner" are simply the best. While preparing our family Trust she not only thought of possible future outcomes, she made provisions within the Trust to protect our assets and kids from these possibilities. All the while explaining everything in 'human talk" not "lawyer (confusing) talk." I have recommended her with confidence as the BEST Trust attorney out there and will continue to do so.

Estate Planning
Allyson completed our living trust, wills, power of attorney and other estate planning documents. She is knowledgeable, thorough, patient and explained things completely. She designed the documents so they are flexible and will not require return visits for small changes. We will happily continue to recommend Allyson to our friends and anyone that needs estate planning.

Helped with deadbeat renters
Allison Shepston is an excellent lawyer and legal advisor. She helped me to evict and get a judgement against some horrible renters that squatted in my house and refused to leave. I would highly recommend her. She was courteous and professional at all times. When we got to court, the other party didn't have a chance of winning.

I will Rest in Peace
My wife and I desperately needed to update our estate plan. We hadn't touched our documents in so long, literally half of our kids weren't born yet. Regan might've been in the White House, actually. Regardless, I called Allyson Shepston for help, and it was definitely the right call. She updated us on estate laws, explained our options, asked us some pertinent (sometimes scary) questions and walked us through the process of updating our trust, will and instructions - all those things you'd rather not think about, but you oughta do. My wife and I would highly recommend Allyson Shepston. She is personable and professional. She is thorough and very easy to work with. She is an expert and translating Lawyer-to-English, and, bottom line, she's very good at her job. Heaven forbid, if I kick the bucket tomorrow, I'll rest in peace knowing everything (legally speaking) is in order. It's also a plus that all the kids will be mentioned by name during the reading of the will!

Allyson Shepston review
We recently had the pleasure of working with Allyson to obtain new wills and family trust. Allyson took time to get to know us and made certain she understood all of our requirements. She is extremely knowledgeable in estate planning. We were impressed with her attention to detail. She has a "can do'' attitude and nothing was insurmountable. Allyson put us at ease through the entire process. She has our highest recommendation. WN and JN ( retired physician)

God Sent
Where does one go when searching for an elder law attorney? I was lucky to have Allyson recommended to us during a very difficult and stressful time in working through my parents wills/trusts. Great attorney...and a wonderful person too!

Trusts, Wills & related documents
I am a difficult customer with an extreme amount of side issues. Allyson handled every problem as it came up and treated me as if my problems were no problem for her to handle. She did work for both my adult daughter and myself. These projects included; 2 wills,2 Trusts, 2 Medical Powers of Attorney, 2 Business Power's of Attorney as well as multiple transactions re: out of State Property and Multiple Out of State Trusts. I will NEVER use another attorney unless I need someone who operates in a specialty that she doesn't handle.

Allyson Shepston Review
Following my highly unsatisfactory experience with a mega size legal corporation Allyson Shepston was recommended by a respected business associate of mine. In my case, Ms. Shepston proved to be well grounded in her knowledge of complicated family and investment situations. She provided various options regarding Trust options, wills, special needs plans, and long range planning. Allyson explained them clearly and concisely and guided me through the decision process. At all times Allyson was professional while remaining focused on my personal needs and concerns. She also recommended other professionals (for my needs) without hesitation. In my opinion, accepting responsibility, follow through on promised action, and personal concern for a client or customer is rare in today's business climate. These unique assets are an integral part of Allyson's character. She has become a trusted advisor and friend. I sincerely value and respect her professional and personal integrity.

Great attorney
Allyson handled my estate planning and was able to answer questions about out of state family members' estate planning options, too. I was impressed with her knowledge and her ability to explain all of my planning options along with the pros and cons of each option. She got the work done quickly for a reasonable fee, and I felt like she was very thorough. I heard about Allyson through other folks who had hired her to handle their estate plan; they recommended her highly, and I agree!
