The Best of the BEST!
My wife and I were in need of a estate planner. I Googled estate planner and came across Capital Planning Law. The best decision I have ever made using Google. Yelena made the process very comfortable. She listened to everything that we wanted and went above and beyond helping us through the process. I also asked Yelena for help on a business purchase. The contract she provided was mind blowing on the attention to detail. So much so, that the broker for the business purchase mentioned he had never seen such a contract in his 15 years in the industry. Yelena made sure she had my best interest and protected me. I felt so proud having her in my corner. Such an amazing experience.

Attention to detail, responsiveness and professionalism! A+
As I was looking for a commercial lawyer to assist me on a lease agreement related transaction, I was lucky enough to find Yelena, who not only offered me a much friendlier billing mechanism (instead of a large initial retainer many lawyers demand even before they’re willing to listen to your problem), but also showed tremendous dedication to my case! She is incredibly knowledgeable about contract law and was able to quickly find all the problems and contradictions in the deal that were extremely relevant to my case. The level of attention to detail, wordsmanship and professionalism she provided was absolutely remarkable! I not only fully endorse and recommend her services, but now have her on my contact list for whenever I need counseling on any commercial contract again.

Great Lawyer
Yelena helped us with purchasing a business and establishing a LLC. We had very short and stressful dead line. She always answered our phones and and e-mails within 10 minutes. She was always helpful, hardworking and answered all of our questions no matter how detailed they were. Her knowledge of law is impressive and most importantly she doesn't tell you the answers in legalese, on the contrary she makes sure that you understand everything. She is not just a great lawyer but also she cares about her clients. Me and my husband were very happy and satisfied with Yelena's assistance that she is also assisting us for our estate planing. I would definitely recommend her without any reservations.

Estate Closure and Estate Planning
I employed Yelena twice in the past 2 years. The first time was when my father passed away and the second time to prepare my will and trust which I had been putting off for several years. In the case of my father's estate, I handled many of the matters thanks to my father's trust but I needed Yelena's assistance when it came time to sell my father's condo. Since I was not familiar with real estate law, Yelena provided the legal guidance I needed to execute the sale. I couldn't have been more happy with her performance. Yelena was very responsive and within a day or two she had a purchase agreement ready for me to present to the buyers. She was there throughout the property sale answering questions and making timely updates to the agreement (usually that day). In addition, Yelena went above and beyond and answered any questions I had dealing with my father's estate in general. She filed my father's will with the county and prepared a notice of trust for me to file. Thank's to her commitment and thoroughness, I was able to close out my father's estate without any surprises. It was her engagement in my father's estate that made her an obvious choice for preparing my own will and trust. She was very thorough as I expected. She took care of setting the trust up and re-deeding my property to the trust. She prepared a binder containing my Will and Testament, Revocable Trust, Durable Power of Attorney, and Health Care Surrogate, Living Will and HIPAA. She also prepared a post-signing todo list for things I needed to take care of in addition to the documents she prepared - things you might not think about immediately (i.e. establish POD (Payment On Death) on checking and savings accounts). All in all, I was very pleased with Yelena and would strongly recommend her for your estate needs. She takes a personal interest in your situation and provides excellent legal advice and guidance.

Compassionate, knowledgeable attorney
Yelena was wonderful to work with during this difficult time. She was compassionate, professional and always very responsive to my many questions during the process of settling my fathers estate. I had no experience dealing with this process and felt lost before speaking to her. She is very knowledgeable and she gave me confidence that everything was being handled appropriately. I would highly recommend her services.

BRILLIANT Lawyer that truly cares about her customers!
I was having difficulties with the builders during the closing of my first home and went to Yelena for help. She is brilliant and very insightful. Yelena took the time to go over my contract and explain all the details to me. She also went over my options and provided her expertise so I can make a decision and benefit the most. Yelena is very responsive and always does her best to help her clients. I am extremely thankful towards her for helping with a successful closing. I highly recommend to anyone with legal issues!

Every family needs a great attorney so we found the BEST!
Yelena Sverdlova is a true professional in every respect. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of estate planning or legal representation. During our initial visit (she came to our house on a Saturday because our schedules were so busy) there were so many questions that came up and Yelena explained every document and detail of the process in terms that made it completely clear to us and our daughters. We all had questions to which she answered with extreme patience. Our discussion brought us to decide on prepared Trust’s instead of a Will. Yelena prepared all of the documents required to form two trusts. We are extremely happy with her and our decision! After our meeting and our decisions were made, Yelena prepared and brought all of the documents, ready to sign, in order, page by page. Just what you want in a good lawyer!! Precision, attention to detail (absolutely meticulous), and understanding of the laws. I have complete confidence in her ability to follow the legal path all the way to the end. She has diligently worked to prepare all of the documents and then kept working to tie up lose ends with all of our properties. She also puts the information on a Flash Drive for your safe keeping. She was punctual to the minute every time we met and her work was autographed with excellence. On a personal note; Yelena is so kind and understanding. You might not know it but estate planning is an emotional undertaking. She listened to me cry when different subjects came up and for that I am grateful to her. I completely trust her with our information. She is super sweet! Every family needs a great attorney so we found the BEST!

Meticulous & Helpful
Ms Sverdlova is quite the dedicated attorney. You can just tell she loves her work by the results she produces. I have met with and used several attorneys in the past and none of them quite showed me the personal dedication as well as meticulous attention to their work. She sat down and went through every question I had and explained everything thoroughly. I very much trust the results!
