After having unsuccessfully made our way through an on-line do it yourself estate plan and another attorney, we finally found Emily Buchbinder. She listened carefully to our wants, needs and situation, carefully explained our options, and executed a set of clear and well organized documents. She did a fantastic job for us and at a reasonable cost. We recommend her very highly.
