We were so very pleased with the fundamental explanations of our Trust Documents.
We felt very comfortable placing our trust in Attorney Shanawany to compile our personal information as well as creating a Trust to protect our home asset and developing a current will. Attorney "Sham" as he prefers to be called explained every aspect of our concerns in laymans terms that was easy and simple to understand. He made my wife and I feel like he knew us forever and was totally concerned about our needs to protect our assets from being controlled by the Probate court in a situation were we may both pass away unexpectedly.
We highly recommend this law firm to help you plan your future asset allocations.

Imagine the very best attorney in the USA and you have discovered "Sham" Shanawany.  First of all, we were impressed with his professional office and well-trained courteous staff members.  We were very comfortable in how everyone followed recommendations related to the coronavirus pandemic.  Secondly, we were assisted on time with no delays on our appointment times.  Mr. Shanawany helped us to make a family trust, and he did not hesitate to answer each and every question in a clear and concise manner that illuminated our minds above legal jargon.  That ability to communicate is a unique skill that is not common in discussions with the average attorney.  In general, I was always more confused dealing with attorneys when I came out of their office than when I went in.  We were made to feel that our will was his priority, and he explained options of how best to achieve our wishes in order to get our affairs in proper order.  As we all get elderly, there comes a time when trust is needed.  In a world today filled with the sins common in human nature, Mr. Shanawany assured us of the necessary steps to take care of our loved ones after we pass away.  It is important to note that he never looked at his watch and gave eye contact.  He did not make us feel rushed.  He did not make one spouse feel stupid for asking a question that might not be on topic.  With patience, understanding, and compassion he communicated with professional and knowledgeable expertise.  Mr. Shanawany has a passion for people and his genuine desire to help others is sincere.  We highly recommend him to become your attorney.  In fact, we intend to continue to use his services and recommend him to all of our friends and acquaintances.  I was under the mistaken impression that you get what you pay for, but let me assure you that services were provided at reasonable rates.  For genuine peace of mind, hire his services today.  We have a huge burden taken off of our shoulders as our business affairs are now complete.  May God Bless Mr. Shanawany forever!

We had no end of life documents or a lawyer. Looking online this law firm, and especially Sham, had amazing reviews and we can confirm them. We had no idea what we needed. We had an initial video phone interview with Sham in which he asked what we wanted to do. The details of what we wanted turned out to be pretty complicated. Sham clearly explained the possibilities in terms of having a trust versus a will. To avoid probate we went with a trust backed up by wills. The documents he produced were very detailed and he spent considerable time going through and explaining them. He would be an excellent teacher the way he presents things. Moreover, Sham is really a nice, friendly, very funny guy. Not your typical lawyer. Super professional and knowledgeable which made it a quick and easy process. We ended up with a very detailed trust with back up wills, durable powers of attorney, and living wills. Their pricing was very competitive. Highly recommended! We are all set to go, so to speak.
