Professional, knowledgeable, and affordable - just the attorney I was hoping for when I met with Lauren to review and update my trust.  I highly recommend her to anyone interested in a living trust.

Lauren was very courteous and helpful with my situation. She answered all my questions regarding all of the estate documents that were prepared for me. She is very knowledgeable, efficient and prompt. A very nice and helpful attorney. I highly recommend Lauren Smykowski.

Lauren did excellent work on our trust. We were her first same-sex couple and she made an extra effort to make sure our estate would be protected. The entire process is well planned out. The first cut of the trust documents was emailed to us. We reviewed it, came up with some modifications and questions and sent it back. A couple of phone calls and an email later, all our questions were answered and the trust, our wills and health care directives, and a new deed for our house were ready for signature. All under two weeks.

Lauren showed us every courtesy. In addition to managing the trust package, she notarized our Kaiser Health Care Directives and a revised deed without additional charge.

I highly recommend her services.

Super professional, super nice. I was so worried that I wasn't able to decide what to do but she helped me step by step and made it easy. She spent lots of time with me to explain everything. I'm very lucky I found her and I wish I could give her more than 5 stars. Highly recommend her to anyone who is worried about doing their will and trust.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! I cannot express the joy of finally completing my much needed Living Trust with the help of Lauren Smykowski. She made the experience so simple. After a very lengthy procrastination of doing a Living Trust because I thought it would be a big headache and hassle , my Living Trust was completed in under 2  weeks, headache and hassle free. All I did was give my information and wishes, then sign. All for a very reasonable price. Ms Smykowski made herself available to answer all my questions and addressed all of my concerns before and even now that my Trust is completed. I am eternally grateful to Ms Smykowski for making this experience a GREAT one and look forward to her handling other family members Trust. Thanks again Ms Smykowski, for a job well done!!!
