Steve helped us plan as if he was planning for his own child. His knowledge of estate planning was phenomenal. We were very comfortable working with him and trusting him with our future. He helped to make the legal jargon accessible by explaining things in different terms.
He charges a flat fee which was VERY reasonable, guided us through the entire process, beginning with a free phone call to discuss before we even decided if we were going to go with him – it took maybe 90 minutes! – to him coming to our home at night after our kids were in bed to hammer out details. We got a living trust, a living will/health care proxies, a Baby’s Protection Plan stipulating both short-term and long-term guardians. When we bought a new house, I just sent him an email to ask some details about the living trust, and he got back to me right away. He’ll also check in with us every 3 years to see if anything has changed.
Best money I ever spent.
Steve did an excellent job of helping us update our estate planning documents. He gave us just the right level of detail so we could choose the options that worked best for us. He was accessible and quickly responded to emails. His fees were reasonable. We recommend him without reservation and have referred him to family members.
Steve was extremely patient and thorough in explaining the estate planning process to us. He provided us with a comprehensive estate plan which has afforded us the peace of mind of knowing that our family will be taken care of in case something happens to us. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an estate planning lawyer.
We would highly recommend Steven Zelinger to any family looking to set up a trust or guardianship for their family and children. Steve very patiently walked us through an extremely complicated process and made everything easy to understand and accessible. It is not a fun subject to discuss, but this was important to us and we are so happy to have it done. We feel confident that our son will be taken care of in the event of an accident.
I highly recommend using Steven Zellinger for family estate planning. His rates are very reasonable especially considering the importance of sound estate planning. But, even more important, he guided and informed me and my wife at every step along the process. His explanations were clear and understandable. He provided us with various avenues to explore for major decisions, and we always felt affirmed that our decision was supported by the best legal advice.
