I worked with Carol on trust documents for my mom when my dad passed away and I had to go through the nightmare of probate, and vowed "never again" on going through probate. She was excellent -- really knew her stuff, and because I'm an education-oriented person, myself (MBA in finance), I appreciated her collaborative, educational approach. I highly recommend her for this work -- she's savvy, strategic, and educational.

Ms. Di Giacomo worked tirelessly to assist our family as my husband was suddenly hospitalized. Out of state, he was in a coma, and close to death. I was overwhelmed and scrambling to get papers for the hospital and doctors. One doctor was questioning my husband's living will.
Upon hearing of our circumstance, she immediately sent me copies of his living will, healthcare and durable power of attorney ...and phoned me frequently to check on us, giving further assistance as needed. After his death, she assisted me with his estate. At that time I was in shock and grieving. I thank God now, for Ms. DiGiacomo's keen insight and advice helped our financial, and family stability.Her professionalism and compassion meant everything to my husband, to me and our family. I would highly recommend her.
