Client Testimonial

My brothers, Randy and Roger and I cannot thank you and your staff enough for the work that has been accomplished regarding the estate of my parents.

I need to bring to your attention the incredible job that Holly Thornton did for us. Her personal quest to see that we were justifiably taken care of, is of special note. The phone calls, requesting clarification of many issues, the trip to the estate location, and the confrontation involving certain persons who tried to abscond with trust funds, are just a small portion of what she did for us. To me, I feel that she went above and beyond her job calling and it is sincerely, deeply appreciated. She did all of this with a sense of humor and a personality of confidence and caring.

Holly is a gem. I’ve been involved with more than a few businesses and I’ve found it rare that someone that can enthusiastically dive into a convoluted mess, which is what I thought of our particular situation, and come up with solutions. Again, this is very deeply appreciated.

Your office deserves high praise and will be highly recommended to any and all who need estate help.

Client Testimonial

I appreciate the support from you and your entire staff as I navigated the unfamiliar role of Trustee/Executor for my stepfather and brother last year and this year.

Especially during the first few weeks after my stepfather…died, in March 2010, Holly Thornton not only gave me a great overall description of what needed to be done, and when, but she also helped me keep my focus/sanity when family emotions ran high. Her confident guidance…was contagious and gave me confidence that I was doing my job well.

When an issue came up that Holly believed needed additional input she would sometimes tele-conference me in with Missy Roche, whose advice was always on target. Evan Press reviewed some of my financial reports before I sent them to the beneficiaries and made helpful suggestions. As you may recall, my stepfather’s daughter engaged her own attorney which was a little “nervous making” but you and Holly dealt with that which gave me the breathing space to do my job. You sorted out the tax returns, both Personal and Trust, complete with Form K-1 for the beneficiaries. Thank you, thank you…

There have been so many ways that you and your staff have been helpful to me: tax returns, real estate transaction advice, banking issues, record keeping advice. It was all good. The lion’s share of my contact with Hornstein Law Offices, however, was through Holly and she always had a good, practical solution to any problem I brought to her and every single phone call ended with me feeling better and ready to charge forward. What a gift!

…I wanted you to know how much I appreciate you and your team.

Best regards, Brenda A.

Living Trust Testimony

I feel so passionate about the importance of a “Living” Trust that I wanted to tell everyone who is even thinking about it. . .DO IT NOW! My name is Pam and this is my story.

In August of 2008, my husband and I decided it was imperative that we put our assets and affairs in order and finally do a Living Trust. We had talked about it for years but had always put it off for whatever reason. We didn’t have time, we didn’t want to spend the money, etc. In September of 2008, my husband’s health started to deteriorate and, in November, he was admitted into the hospital where he was to spend the next 48 days and then to a skilled nursing facility for the last 17 days of his life. During this ordeal, I was dealing with so many things. . .doctors, nurses, insurance, financial matters and decisions that had to be made. However, the one thing I did not have to worry about was the very important fact that we had done our Living Trust. When I was asked for Robert’s Health Care Directive and/or the Power of Attorney, I had it!

I had come home late one night from the hospital and will never forget a phone message that was left by Holly from Hornstein Law Offices. They had heard about Robert and she called to say they were so sorry and they were praying for him. She also let me know that our Living Trust was PERFECT and that if anyone questioned it or I had any problems to call and Steve Hornstein would take care of it. To this day, I think of that call and the reassurance it gave me knowing that our Living Trust was perfect and had been done properly.

It has been 7 months since my beloved husband passed away. I have spoken to Holly many times regarding questions I had. She has always been there for me. I cannot put into words the comfort that has given me.

In closing, I would like to thank Holly and Hornstein Law Offices from the bottom of my heart. I would not hesitate to recommend Hornstein Law Offices to anyone who is thinking about doing a Living Trust. The most important message I want to send in telling my story is this. . .do not wait until you or your loved one are in the midst of a tragedy to try and put your life in order. DO IT NOW!!! Yes, it takes time and, yes, it costs money, BUT, the comfort and assurance it will give you knowing it’s done and done right. . .you absolutely cannot put a price on that. And, when I pass on one day, I know full well that my affairs are in order with a Living Trust that was personalized and tailored to fit me. I have the knowledge and the peace of mind knowing that the estate Robert and I had built over 41 years of marriage will go to our children the way we wanted. These decisions and instructions have been made by us and not by the courts.
