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.
