      "Emily was invaluable in helping me"

      Emily was invaluable in helping me through a complicated probate when my husband died unexpectedly without a will. She was professional and compassionate and showed great patience in explaining all the facets of probate. She has worked well with my financial adviser and CPA to choose the best options for my financial future as well as patiently guided me through the process of writing up my Trust. I will continue to go to Emily for Estate counsel and I highly recommend her for any and all your Estate Planning needs.

      "She has nurtured my confidence that all will be well."

      I was referred to Emily by a dear friend in the wake of my husband’s tragic death. Emily’s expertise in trust administration and probate was invaluable to me. She was prompt and thorough in administering our trust. And in the endless legal facets of closing down my husband’s business, and navigating probate, Emily was always on point. Though crisp and competent in all aspects of business, the greatest treasure of all has been Emily’s unfailing compassion throughout these many months of transition. She has nurtured my confidence that all will be well.

      "I am very pleased with all the services provided by Emily Buchbinder."

      I am very pleased with all the services provided by Emily Buchbinder. I struggled for a couple of years to try to accomplish what she did in just two short meetings. We covered my estate planning needs along with some nagging real estate issues. She is easy to reach and always prompt to respond. I highly recommend her.

      "Highly Recommend"

      We have always found Emily and her staff to be very responsive and professional in advising us on our trust and estate documents. Within just the last few months, we asked her to update our documents and she included some recent legal requirements that we were not aware of. We will definitely continue to use her expertise and knowledge in the future.

      "She made me feel in control of my estate"

      I was able to read the cover letter and I am immediately feeling good about our decision to go with Emily as our trust lawyer. In all our trust endeavors, we’ve never had anyone spell things out in a way I could understand. Thank you Emily for the explanation of the documents and the to-do list. I'm starting to feel a bit more in control of our estate.

      "I recommend her very highly."

      I find Emily honest, professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to deal with. I am much more at ease now that she has helped me. She listens carefully to my wants, needs, and situation, carefully explained my options, and, in my case, executed a set of clear and well-organized documents. She did a fantastic job for me and at a reasonable cost. I recommend her very highly. It was a pleasure finding someone so competent to work with here in Santa Cruz.

      "Emily has taken care of quite a few legal matters for us"

      Over the past couple of years, Emily has taken care of quite a few legal matters for us. She drew up our trust and updated our will and associated documents; tackled a complicated inherited mineral rights issue for our family and successfully documented clear ownership for us; drew up our son’s will; reviewed and advised on legal documents for a parent’s trust, and recently amended our trust due to some changes. Emily is knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and responsive. We will continue to recommend Emily to friends and call on her when needed.
