My wife and I recently met with Jeff to update our wills as well as other estate matters as we approach our late seventies. We could not have been more pleased with our whole experience. The legal jargon was reduced to layman’s terms while we received the benefit of this man’s vast knowledge and experience. His demeanor was that of a family member as was that of his in-house associates. A quality product was the end result of a most pleasant and learned experience. We highly recommend Jeff as the man for all phases of estate planning.

Formerly from New Jersey I have been a California resident since 1980. This past year, I had the misfortune of having my brother and sister both dying within 3 months of each other. My siblings and I had not communicated in the past 20 years and there was no other family to take care of the burials and final affairs. There were monumental problems with the Estate beside the location on the east coast. My sister left everything to my brother, who in turn, died two months later with no lawyer and a missing will. I didn’t know what to do. I spoke with a friend of mine who still lived in New Jersey. He recommended Jeff Press, who he described as an excellent probate lawyer.
When I finally spoke to Mr. Press, I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and experienced, as well as sympathetic and friendly. He helped me through the nightmarish legal problems and seas of red tape often encountered by understaffed, unsympathetic, and inert, New Jersey state and local government authorities and offices. Over the next six months, Jeff and I had many conversations and I felt at ease and trusted him. He became a new friend to me in my times of confusion, and found him to be ethical and humane.
I rate his service as top and would recommend him to anyone who has Estate problems.
I would like to thank you for your diligence in seeing this confusing process through. Your professionalism and patience led us to the appropriate outcome despite my frequent bouts of frustration.
The legal system moves slowly at times, a difficult thing for a “type A” like myself to deal with. Because of your persistence and thorough understanding of estate law, the outcome was, as you know, substantially better than what was originally presented by the executor.
Thank you again Jeff,
One of the most important decisions one can make in a lifetime is how to provide for those, near and dear, after death. Selecting the best estate advisor is also of paramount importance since one must be comfortable with the resulting final document. So saying, I would not only suggest, but firmly direct, anyone to Jeff Press, my estate attorney of choice.
In establishing, and later updating my will, Jeff Press has considered and addressed areas which other attorneys, for whatever reasons, overlook. He is ultra-comfortable and most capable in his field.
Am I satisfied with Jeff Press? Absolutely! And, all others seeking and using his good counsel will be equally satisfied.
