My parents created their trust with the Collins Law Group in 2008 and when my father passed in 2017, the law firm assisted my mother and my siblings with the administration that takes place after the first spouse passes away. The Collins Law Group has been wonderful to work with throughout the years. They have steadily held free informational seminars, which they have transitioned to webinars due to the pandemic. They really care about the community and it shows with their free educational webinars. I recently attended one of their free webinars and it was surprising to learn the mistake that most married couples make which is to place their home in joint tenancy. I most recently came in to create my own trust and Attorney Lioness assisted with the creation of my trust. Attorney Lioness was a delight, she was very accommodating to my schedule. The law firm even gave me a video of my trust. I was able to watch the video and go through my trust, which explained the trust in a concise way. It will be of great benefit for my family to watch it as it will go through everything that needs to be done and the roles that each person will have upon my passing. I recommend this firm because they know what they are talking about, they are trustworthy and very professional.
More families should plan with this firm. I have been a client of the Collins Law Group since 2004 and since then, they have been offering free educational seminars to the community. For the past fifteen plus years that I have been a client at the firm I have consistently received newsletters from the firm with the most recent updates to the law. This is great because it is important to keep your trust up to date with the changing laws. I just came in to update all of my documents and Attorney Lioness took the time to answer all of my questions. She was very gracious in assisting me. I currently run a Civil Litigation firm and I get to see first-hand the things that people experience when they are going through probate and how costly it can be when you do not have a trust in place. It is best to invest in a professional experienced attorney to create your trust to avoid probate.
Attorney Ebbay is the attorney who drafted my living trust. She was immensely helpful in providing me with the guidance I needed to assign the division of my estate amongst my children. Planning with Attorney Ebbay and the Collins Law Group has been comforting. They are very thorough, high touch treatment and are extremely sensitive to the nature of the decision making when it comes to planning. My parents have been clients of the Collins Law Group for over 15 years and when my father passed away three years ago, I began to get involved with their trust. Working with the firm has been pleasant because they are informative and thorough with their work. I can now see firsthand, the impact that this whole process has and the importance of sharing this line of thought process with my own children. When my father passed and the Collins Law Group stepped in, I was made aware of the provisions of the trust and how the trust should be handled and today when I signed my documents, I was presented with a video that explained my whole trust, article by article. This video will be helpful to entice my children to this line of thought process as well as their responsibilities for when I am no longer here.
Our experience at the Collins Law Group was a particularly good and efficient experience. The webinar offered by them was highly informative and it answered most if not all our estate planning questions. Prior to our planning, we were not too familiar with any estate planning, we had a general idea of what a trust was but did not know just how much you could tailor it. The staff provided my wife and I with excellent service. Attorney Ebbay answered all our questions and accommodated our work schedules for our appointments. Cameron, the Paralegal who assisted Attorney Ebbay with the signing of our documents was extremely helpful during the process. At the signing of our living trust, we were presented with a tailored video of our living trust. This video made the portfolio containing our trust less intimidating and easier to understand. The video went over what our trust covers and the responsibilities that our representatives will have upon our deaths. Overall, great experience with this firm and its staff.
At the Collins Law Group, you will get great professional customer service. I loved the personalized treatment and how accessible they are. Prior to becoming a client, I had no knowledge of estate planning. I just knew through friends’ experiences that probate was not pretty. After attending the information webinar that the firm offers, which by the way is free, I learned that there are various options setting up your trust without hindering the benefits of your beneficiaries and to protect my children from any possible divorce. On the day I signed my trust, the firm presented me with a customized video. This video will be greatly beneficial to my family because it will provide them with a clear picture of the role that they have been assigned to as well as serve as a guide to some of the duties that they will have to handle. I would recommend that more people plan with this firm because they offer professional services and this firm will be there for you in the future, they are thorough and complete, I really do not know if there are other places out there like them that will offer the same type of service.
Both my mother and I got our trust done at the same time with Attorney Lioness J. Ebbay. When it comes to Estate Planning, the Collins Law group is very experienced and highly knowledgeable. Attorney Ebbay took the time to answer all our questions and explained the whole process. I registered and watched their free webinar on Wills & Living Trusts. During the webinar, both Mom and I learned the importance of having a trust and most importantly the difference between a will and a trust. The whole staff at the Collins Law Group was great to work with. They were very accommodating. They went out of their way to provide mom and I excellent customer service. Before we signed our documents, we watched a video that went through the trust and the way that the video is formulated, it made it quite easy to navigate and follow along with our trust. The best part was that we each got to take our video home. I personally liked that because I can sit and watch it with my family any time without me having to interpret what each article means, they can watch it and hear it and understand it themselves.
Brilliant! The communication was clear from beginning to end. My goal was to avoid the cost of probate. That was accomplished.
The video they give you when everything is finished is amazing.
My mom went thru probate and dealing with the creditors was a hassle. I wanted to be prepared if anything were to happen, so I reached out to the Law Group. Everyone needs an Estate Plan!!
At first, we procrastinated. Then we took the time to attend an in-person seminar. That lead to us completing our Trust. Our time with the Collins Law Group was VERY POSITIVE. Don’t be like us and procrastinate just get it done.
The group is friendly, welcoming, made me feel comfortable, accommodating, easy to build relationships with and are people you can Trust.
My husband and I had an excellent experience! Did you know that when you’re married you don’t automatically get to make decisions for your spouse? You need paperwork to handle your spouse’s affairs. We learned this during our consultation with the attorney.
All of our questions got answered and the team was caring. The Trust Process was well explained, easy to understand and helped us build our family’s safety net.
