What our Clients are Saying About us
“Russ Nesevich is a true professional… knowledgeable, approachable, understanding and was able to explain the details of estate planning so that I was entirely at ease throughout the process. I highly recommend Russ!”
“My wife and I were going on an overseas trip without the kids for the first time. We wanted to make sure that should something happen to us the kids would be taken care of. Russ helped us set up a will and testamentary trust.
Even though we only had a couple of weeks before our trip, Russ explained everything to us and prepared all of the documents in a timely fashion. He made sure we covered all of our bases and reviewed all of our legal options with us. He explained to us how to discuss estate planning with our family and relatives.
Russ is now our primary contact point for estate planning and financial advice.”
“I contacted Mr. Nesevich for updating our will. He spoke with me at length on the phone explaining what he does to make an estate plan understandable and easy to follow in a clearly designed notebook. My husband and I decided to meet for a consultation. While we were there, he explained all the areas of importance in an estate plan and asked us questions as well as answering our questions in a friendly and approachable manner.
After interviewing another attorney, we decided to hire Mr. Nesevich. We are extremely happy with the results!”
“We hired Russ to help us with a plan for our elderly parents and he masterfully navigated the family through a plan that worked for us. We are all happy to feel safe in knowing we are legally prepared for whatever the future may bring. We highly recommend Russ!”
“I highly recommend Russ Nesevich! My husband and I decided to update our Living Will. I can honestly say that there’s no comparison between our original living will and the updated comprehensive binder that was prepared by Russ. The material in the binder was well thought out and it covered all the topics that are important for the remainder of our lives. He took the time to understand our needs, hear our wishes and focus on all the details that were important to us. He even managed to incorporate the religious preferences.
Once Russ completed the will and we came to the office, he took the time to explain the entire binder, sign and notarize all the documents. It was also impressive to see that a USB stick was provided, as part of a binder. I haven’t seen that done before.
He also explained that if we ever wanted to change something it’s very easy to do because there’s no need to redo the entire document. :)”
