Sandra Lee Russell

Jennifer Medeiros has been a God-send. After losing my mom a few months ago, I needed assistance with her trust plus setting up my own. I was an emotional mess. Jennifer is so professional, yet warm and caring. She has made this horrible time in my life so much easier with her legal knowledge and skill. I highly recommend Jennifer if you are looking for a truly great estate and trust attorney.

Nadine Kelly

Ms. Medeiros, As we close my aunt's estate I thank you for your professional assistance in the handling of the Trust and the entire estate. My being out-of-state presented another challenge for me, but with modern technology you made the entire process manageable. Your paralegal was very helpful as well. I appreciated your prompt response to my emails and phone calls.

Arthur Olvera

Mrs. Medeiros, I wanted to thank you for your professionalism and guidance in the administration of my father's estate. Without your expert guidance I don't think I would have been able to manage the drama that can occur. Your professionalism kept my personal feelings in check thus allowing me to fulfill my father's wishes as he laid out in his Trust and Will. I have a sense of accomplishment and you are a big part of that. Once again, thank you and your staff.
