"We were referred to Laura Adell to help complete our estate plans. She is the ultimate professional - very respectful, knowledgeable and thorough. Laura worked around our schedules, answered all of our questions and took the time to explain complex issues. She made the whole process as easy as possible for us. Throughout the process - and since - she has been available to answer any and all questions. We highly recommend her services."

"My wife and I had a need for professional advice and help in settling two estates at the same time: one was a probate, the other was a trust administration. Previous to engaging Laura Adell we had engaged another attorney who did not successfully meet our needs and caused a year-long delay in the process.
Once we engaged Laura however she immediately advised us of our options, offered us several approaches (while clearly explaining all alternatives and providing us the risks for each), informed us of all costs upfront, then assisted us with all required forms, filings, and administrative support that we needed.
Our experience with Laura was EXCEPTIONAL. She clearly demonstrated expertise, an attention to detail that I have personally not seen in years, and a compassion and understanding of our concerns that was unprecedented.
As an internationally certified Quality Manager and Quality Auditor, and a General Manager for one of California's largest electric utilities, my standards for customer service are unquestionably high. It is safe to say that Laura exceeded all of my expectations...in fact, saying she exceeded them doesn't do justice for the level of support and peace of mind she gave my wife and I."

"Laura took all of the mystery out of the Estate Planning process. She answered every question I had patiently and simply and made me think about issues and options I had never even thought of."
"Laura Adell did an excellent job of helping me think through and document my needs and wishes with respect to a Living Trust, a Will and a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care and Asset Management for estate-planning purposes. I'm a 'death with dignity' advocate, and Laura helped me draft, within the current confines of the law, the broadest possible expression of my right to control my final exit. Her research and advice were tailored to my wishes, but with appropriate questions and suggestions during the process. Laura was easy to communicate with, thorough in her attention to detail and followed up promptly on all matters. When it comes time to update my documents, I will certainly use Laura's services again."

"Having waited many years too long we finally decided it was time to protect our children by executing a family trust. Now having no knowledge of what a trust was, what it meant and how it worked, we were completely baffled on how to go about this. In conversation with a friend it came to light that we were in the market for a good attorney to help us through the process (which quite frankly terrified me). A friend recommended Laura stating that she'd had the greatest confidence that Laura would be the lawyer for us. With no hesitation I tell you now that Laura was the absolute best fit, hands down!
Laura knows everything there is to know about her chosen law specialty. No question was left unanswered and we never felt uneasy or unsure about any decision she helped us make. We feel confident that we have an estate plan that will protect our children. We sleep better at night knowing that we've done all we could to make sure the needs of our children are met and that we've done all that we could to prevent further grief and frustration to those left in our absence.
Thank you Laura."
