Chris presents an easy to understand explanation of the Georgia probate process and its potential impacts on one’s estate and heirs. Very responsible to questions and attentive to family concerns and interests. Prompt responses to questions and concerns. Very professional and a pleasure to work with.
Estate planning is a difficult and emotional process. Chris was able to help us make these difficult decisions in a way that will leave our beneficiaries a clear, concise guide to our wishes after our death. With knowledge of the law in our state and under her guidance, we are very comfortable in our decisions and planning.
Chris was extremely knowledgeable about the law and helped us to make a perfect estate plan for my family and children. I was worried that my kids would spend their inheritance as soon as they got it, and she was able to help me set up my estate to filter to them in increments. That is solid peace of mind in my book! Chris listened to everything I had to say, and was always willing to bend over backwards to get back to me and answer my questions. I would recommend her to anyone.
Chris, we think you are wonderful! You always answered your phone and eased my mind on each call. We were impressed with both your professionalism but your friendly manner. We think you’re great, we don’t really wanyt you to use our names, but you may certainly tell everyone you’re the best and we are so happy to be your clients!
We really enjoyed working with Mrs. Behrndt and her staff. She answered our question using as much time as needed for our understanding…we never felt rushed. And our “homework” caused us to consider Estate Planning details we never would have thought on our own. I’ve already recommended her services to a friend!
You and your staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. We appreciate being able to bring our daughters (names omitted for privacy) in also. We have recommended you to friends and family.
Chris explained the types of Trusts and the process clearly at the presentation we attended and at both of our follow up meetings. We are pleased with how thorough she is answering questions and with the books she provided of our information. Last but not least we appreciate that she takes our calls and patiently deals with our questions or any issues we encounter.
Made the process fairly easy and painless. Glad to have taken this step and would do it again.
Nancy and I were extremely appreciative of the assistance we’ve received in establishing our Trust. We thought we had everything we needed with our prepared Wills but learned we were sorely deficient in planning. We’ve learned a lot and the process has helped us to organize our records and important documents as well. Thanks so much. The expense was worth the results.
Chris offers a valuable service overlooked by many of the baby boomers. Her professional and efficient presentation allowed us to have the confidence that the process would be handled quickly and completely. A very good experience.
Thank you so much Chris. You have really helped me and my family get peace of mind.
You were very helpful to me. I know my family will be protected and you do not know how important that is to me. Thank you for always being there for me, answering my questions and taking my calls.
Chris is very good about getting back to you the same day to answer any question you may have. I have been very happy with her customer service.
Chris was very professional, yet personable. I especially leik the way she explained everything to help me understand our options. We were happy with her service.
Chris has been a wonderful and helpful estate planning attorney. I recommend attending her seminar and decide how you can avoid probate, update your Will, etc. Her services continued after you signed the papers for your estate planning. I’m very impressed with services that the offices provides especially, she always answers your phone calls and emails w/o charging additional money.
Chris Behrndt the estate planning attorney of Thomas Walters law offices, helped guide us through our complex legal situations. She took time to listen and offer her expert advice on the best structure for our estate planning needs. She answered all our questions and addressed our concerns and returned our phone calls in a timely manner. Since we were doing trusts for members of our entire family, we were offered a package deal at a very reasonable fee. We also liked their onetime fee structure that will cover the cost of any additional changes to the Trusts for the life of the Trusts. Everyone at the law office was very professional and mindful of our situation. The level of customer services exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Chris Behrndt and her law firm for anyone looking for an affordable solution to estate planning. The Tan Family.
A no nonsense and concise treatment of all estate issues. Chris and the team work together very efficiently to provide you a comfort level in all family matters.
Thank you so much for your help and service in my estate planning. All the information you provided was what I had been looking for the last five years. I had attended (and dragged my son & daughter in law) to lunches about estate planning. They turned out to be selling investment opportunities or something. Your presentation & information was excellent- easily understood and covered the essential information. It was also professionally delivered. I so very much appreciated the final document and follow up. Thank you so much for an outstanding presentation, completed documents, advice and follow up. You are greatly appreciated.
Thanks for help setting up our trusts and answering all our questions.
Chris is an extremely insightful and strategic Estate Planning attorney. Regardless of the complexity of our personal estate and family matters, she considered not only legal strategy, but also, the basic practicalities in her estate planning advice and our trust options. Chris’s demeanor and personality enabled us to develop a trust and confidence in her advice, which when it comes to our families future, we deem critical. She consistently worked to develop innovative strategies that helped us achieve our ultimate goals. We consider her our estate planning “Lifetime Lawyer.
We have worked with Chris a number of times in the past, and find her to be professional, honest, and sincere. She does what she says she is going to do, with no surprises. When we ask questions, she takes the time to help us understand, and make purposeful decisions. We have nothing but good things to say about our experience with her and your firm.
Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we were with the services we received from your law firm. Chris provided us with an amazing, valuable resource and experience. We have worked with a few law firms in my life for various reasons, but the experience with your firm was professional and personal. Frankly speaking, Chris was always available to answer my questions, down to earth, and helped us to not only get through such a tough time, but also, helped us to plan ahead so we would never have any problems in the future. I would recommend Chris and your firm to everyone who wants a honest, hardworking lawyer, who is actually on your side.
The development of an Estate Plan was something my husband and I knew we had to do, but it did not know where to start. We received the Advertisement leaflet and made an appointment. Chris explained every step of the process in Simple terms. At our appointment for one on one, we felt respected, cared for and were given the feeling of being the only clients in that office for the day. The attorney, and staff of the firm are knowledgeable, efficient and helpful above and beyond our expectations. We have already recommended Chris to our friends and co-workers. We want to say thank you for such a complete portfolio of our Estate Plan.
I have been extremely pleased with Chris and her firm. She is very knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to do business with. I will certainly recommend her to my friends and associates.
I have been thinking about Estate Planning for a long time so when I received the invitation from Chris I went. It was time and Chris put on an outstanding presentation. I was ready. At her office Chris answered all my questions in a very easy to understand and simple and fast…It was well worth it.
We have never wanted to consider estate planning. It made us feel very uncomfortable. However, when we went and listened to Chris, she made it easy for us to think about, and she has been amazing to work with. You can’t go wrong working with Chris and her firm.
This was an easy process and well worth it. A valuable service and great attorney.
We are very pleased with the Trust Mr. Ross outlined for us. He did an accurate and professional job in a timely manner. We are also pleased that he told us all the time frames to expect the different products & he followed up and completed everything within the time frame.
Oren did a fine job helping us with our Estate Planning. He took time explaining the ins and outs of trusts and helped us to arrive at the solution best suited for us and our family. We highly recommend Oren.
Oren is very professional and great for estate planning.
My experience was great. It was beyond what I thought I needed. Oren answered questions before I even knew I needed them answered. I would recommend him, because my experience was wonderful.
Our experience was very positive. We knew we needed a Trust, but Oren made us realize how much we needed it and that the time was right. He educated us on everything very well. He did a lot of work for us. Oren also did some extra things for us we did not even know we needed. He was great about meeting all of our expectations.
Oren met with us at his office, we formed a very honest and fulfilling partnership for our legal needs moving forward in our lives. He was very forthcoming on what would be the best approach to meet our needs and wants so as to protect our estate upon one and then the others’ leaving . We feel so comfortable knowing that our estate, medical, and after life desires are now set legally. Again, Oren knows what’s personally and legally right for you to best feel good about your future.
Having worked diligently for over 46 years, my husband and I have peace of mind that our assets are protected while we maintain control. The complex process of estate planning was simplified by J. Oren Ross, and we are encouraging other family members to consult with him.
I am glad I chose Thomas Walters Estate Planning. Now, I do not have to worry about my estate and trust issues for my lifetime.
We had been thinking about creating a trust for our estate planning for some time. We had actually seen a few presentations, but decided to wait. When we saw the presentation from Oren, we were impressed with the detail and true Customer Service Orientation of what he said. we met with him and he made it easy & understandable. He was very open to explaining thoroughly all the questions we asked. I would recommend Oren, 100%, for your estate planning needs! Thank you Oren for a great job.
Oren and his team have done a great job through all three phases of the process. I enjoyed the educational seminar that was thorough, the interview and discovery of our particular circumstances, and was quite impressed with the document created and the time Oren took to explain everything page by page. Oren’s promise to follow up and service any changes to our Living Trust at no additional cost was strong inducement to do business with him. I was pleased when I heard from him at the one year anniversary asking if anything happened in the past year that required updating my Living Trust. Now I know I made a good choice in choosing Oren and his team to help me manage something so important to my family.I highly recommend Oren Ross.
I’m most happy with the work Oren did on my Estate for my family and loved ones. I’m most happy with the Trust put in place to avoid arguments between my loved ones and my belongings being stuck in court for months, as well as family fighting over things. I have one person over my trust to say what goes to who. It’s worth the money to know what you worked hard for will go to who you want it to go to, and when you leave here, you’re in peace. Thank you Oren and Thomas Walters.
I highly recommend using Mr. Ross if you are considering estate planning in the near future. He recently establishing a revocable living trust for me and I was more than satisfied. The binder that Mr. Ross provided is well-organized and detail-oriented. As an attorney, Mr. Ross is extremely proficient and knowledgeable in his field. He explained every detail in terms that, as his client, I could understand. My questions and concerns were always addressed with compassion and in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Ross to friends and family in the future!
My husband John and I met Oren at a luncheon invitation for Estate Planning. The seminar was very informative. We scheduled to have a private meeting at his office. Soon after the meeting I was diagnosed with cancer. Oren was very accommodating to speed up the process to get the paperwork finalized before my surgery. We are very thankful for his expedience and how thorough everything was explained to us. Oren stated we were the first to have our Living Trust completed in record time. We are so happy to have chosen Oren and his team to complete our Estate Planning.
Estate planning isn’t an event anyone looks forward to embracing. I realized the necessity of having a will, trusts, living proxies, etc.after having to deal with the passing of my mom. Due to the expediency of my parents handling their final affairs it lended me the opportunity to go through an arduous time with ease and assurance. A couple of months after my husband and I attended an Estate Planning Seminar hosted by Attorney J. Oren Ross II. The seminar positively gave us the impetus to get our legal affairs in order, it was fascinating to comprehend real life scenarios of the “what ifs?” and “why nots!”. Mr. J. Oren Ross II and his assistant explained the legalities in layman’s terms. The entire Estate planning was structured and condensed in a binder that is contoured to every individual, that is the beauty of it all. A go-to Guide as well as a safe keeper of all the important & pertinent documents needed to be forward to the survivor of interest. Mr. J. Oren Ross II rendered services that are immeasurable and in an expeditious manner.
We first met Oren Ross at a Financial and Estate Planning dinner seminar. Oren’s presentation convinced us we needed to take action with respect to planning our estate, even though we are middle income without a million-dollar portfolio. They handled the entire package for us - medical directives, wills, powers of attorney, and established a revocable trust that when the time is right, is easily transferred to an irrevocable trust. Oren and his team were professional and responsive to our needs through the entire process, from our first meeting, to signing of the documents, to follow-up information and activities. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Oren over the coming years until we eventually form the irrevocable trust.
My wife and I are pleased to recommend Mr. J. Oren Ross, II based on the Estate Planning documents he prepared for us. He worked to creat a 3” thick ring binder containing all of our financial information, required end of life documents and of extreme importance to us a single binder that contains items such as life insurance value and contact number, bank and brokerage account, land deeds, etc. Having all information organized and understandable will lessen the burden on our children upon our passing. The Estate Planning documents takes all the guess work out of the picture; our survivors will know exactly how we want all things handled.On a personal note we found Mr. Ross to be professional and understanding as to our questions which we did ask more than once. He keeps his appointment time and has his staff is available as witnesses, assembling documents, etc. during our final meeting so we left the meeting with the complete package. We are positive that your experience will be as perfect as ours.
Oren and his company (Thomas Walters) put together a Living Trust for my wife and I. We have property in multiple states and Oren handled the complete processes to move all our properties into our Trust. Oren answered all of our questions promptly and professionally. We would give Oren and his company 5 out of 5 stars.
Oren and his staff did an excellent job with our estate planning needs. They were able to do what we wanted done in a timely manner, were willing to work with us over a period of time and we feel confident everything will be handled easily and efficiently when the time comes.
We are very pleased with the services of J. Oren Ross II in setting up our Living Trust. He gave a very thorough overview of the different kinds of trusts and their uses and the advantages of using a Trust vs. Probate. When setting up our Living Trust, Oren answered all our questions in plain understandable terms which made it easy for us to make decisions and proceed with confidence. With his help, we were able to complete everything we needed for our Living Trust and four Inheritance Trust documents. I really like the notebook that he put together for us to have all the documents and forms in one place. We highly recommend Oren to anyone who is considering planning for their estate and making it easy on their heirs in dealing with asset distribution after their death.
