Anthony C.

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… Read More… “Anthony C.”

Dr. and Mrs. N.

In the past several years we have had to work with several attorneys regarding our business, the passing of our parents and the managing of their estates. We thought these experiences went well until we experienced a whole new level of professionalism and caring from Selena Sverdlova at Capital Planning Law. Selena was able to help us plan for our future, our businesses future and the future of those we entrust with our well being and estate. The amount of knowledge this young lady has regarding so many areas of law is impressive. He attention to detail is impressive and Bailey, her fur baby got along wonderfully with our fur baby Daisy. It is comforting for us to know we have a “true” professional attorney in our corner looking out for our best interest.

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.

Candice M.

I just used this attorney  to make my will , revocable trust,  durable power of attorney etc. up-to-date.  She definitely goes above and beyond what you would expect from an attorney. First of all, she will come to your house if you would like. Reminds me of the old-time doctors who made house calls.  And she really read through everything with a fine tooth comb and she found mistakes that needed to be rectified and she dealt with title companies for me. They did not want to do what  needed to be done. She was forceful and got the job done. She even brings dog treats for your dog. I would not hesitate to recommend her and I already… Read More… “Candice M.”

Alan B.

Now I know why Attorney Sverdlova has so many 5 star reviews. Our Mom passed away and we needed to transfer a property deed from my Mom’s trust to my sister and me. I contacted her via email and she responded within a few hours seeking a good time to talk. We ended up with her planning to call me between 8-9 PM that night. 9:45 the phone rang, her last meeting had run late she apologized for the late call and asked if I could still talk. We discussed the issue and during the call she volunteered that she would handle the matter on a (very fair) fixed fee. I really appreciated that as I had planned to bring up fees because well you know how some attorneys can be. We planned to handle everything by mail but the USPS took several weeks to deliver the materials I sent her so it ended up with my sister going in to handle her end when she was in FL and I did the same a couple of weeks later. Attorney Sverdlova was very patient and thorough when I met with her. She was super careful with all the details. I’ve got way more experience with attorneys than I wish I ever had and everything considered, quality of work, responsiveness, and fees I can’t think of another attorney who has done a better… Read More… “Alan B.”


Yelena Sverdlova of Capital Planning Law 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… Read More… “C.F.”

Barry L.

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… Read More… “Barry L.”

She was very knowledgable in real estate law and helped me maneuver the home buying process. I have also consulted with her on several occasions with regard to my will and other estate planning documents.I recommend Ms. Sverdlova to my friends and family and would 100% recommend her to others.I very much trust her… Read More… “Audra L.”
