Charles Amen is an attorney who combines professionalism and expertise with genuine interest in and empathy with his client. After finally making a long-overdue appointment to create a will and an estate plan and feeling embarrassed about my delay, I found Mr. Amen to be knowledgeable, personable, and reassuring in regard to my many questions and concerns. His approach was straightforward and positive. I felt confident that my legal matters were in capable hands. Mr. Amen addressed appropriate actions related to my past decisions, present issues, and possible future needs and took plenty of time to explain details of my estate plan including actions I should take to complete the process. I appreciated the fact that he is an excellent, understanding listener! I also commend the staff for making appointments and fielding questions in a personable, patient, and friendly manner! Thank You!
From the moment of my first interview with Jackie Capriano, I felt a sense of relief that is indescribable. After my mother had a stroke and was not going to be able to stay alone, I had not had a good nights sleep. After I brought my case to Jackie who put me in the very capable hands Margaret Givens and Gail Lee, I have very little trouble sleeping. If there is a problem, they handle it. That is it in a nutshell!
I came in with a loosey goosey document from a different lawyer Paul asked questions and we discussed many aspects of my small estate. I admit to being thrown by the cost after the first meeting,but when I picked up the final documents I was blown away! Everything is organized in one convenient book including instructions for the executor. I’m so relieved to have this all taken care of by people who understand the confusion possible for those left behind.
We are exceptionally pleased with the service provided by this firm. Mr. Gantner’s expertise to handle a very complicated Trust situation for our aged family member is most helpful. Frustration and stress would be rampant in our lives without his willingness to do all he could to solve our problems.
Paul Gantner is an amazing professional. He has been committed to being helpful and supportive with my estate and living trust planning. I know these matters are important and would recommend Paul and the firm for anyone looking for estate planning needs. Paul is especially thoughtful and knowledgeable in his approach to all issues of estate planning, especially for LGBT clients. I have been very satisfied with this process and professionalism. They will continue to be my go to attorneys for any estate matters in the future.

If you have recently lost a loved one you are undoubtedly still grieving the loss. Although you may not yet have considered the legalities that follow a death you will need to do so soon. If your loved one executed a Last Will and Testament prior to death, the Will must be probated before any estate assets can be transferred to the intended beneficiaries. If a living trust was created by your loved one prior to death some, or all, of the decedent’s assets may be held by the trust. In that case the terms of the trust will dictate how and when the assets will be distributed to the trust beneficiaries
Having an experienced estate planning attorney by your side throughout the probate or trust administration process will ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible so that you and your family can concentrate on grieving your loss.
