Norton Basu LLP ReviewsLEAVE REVIEW FOR BUSINESS
My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our estate-planning experience at Norton-Basu! Somita Basu gave us detailed options and led us through the will and trust process, making each choice simple and answering our questions quickly and thoroughly. I feel confident that when our lives reach another stage (or if we just have to make any changes to our will or trust), we have a competent, friendly steward in this firm.
My wife and I have an overall good experience working with NortonBasu LLP over about less than three months since late July 2021 in creating documents for my estate planning. The documents consist of a revocable Living Trust, a Power of Attorney, an Advanced Health Care Directive, and a Will. The over-90-page documents are neatly organized in six sections/categories in a nice and durable binder on thicker-than-normal paper: General/summary (15 pages), living trust (28 pages), certification of trust (4 pages), wills for both of us (16 pages), Power of Attorney for both (10 pages), Advanced Health Care Directive for both (20 pages), and personal property form (1 pages) for filling in what we want to leave behind. Glad to have worked with a team professionals addressing our questions over time. They work as a team. We started out with an initial meeting with Zakiya and quickly moved into collecting information using their online questionnaires with help from Ashley along the way. Two challenging aspects of the whole process for us were to understand, initially, the legal terms and to figure out our contingent beneficiaries. Ashley provided a document providing definitions of the terminologies - a very helpful guide for us. We also collected questions for the team and Somita met with us on the phone to address all those questions at once. We iterated over emails throughout the process and Ashley provided three drafts over time for our reviews, edits, and confirmations before signing the documents in person in the end at their Los Gatos office, in the presence of two witnesses, including a notary public provided by NortonBasu LLP. We now have peace of mind having taken care of an estate planning we'd wanted to do for years.
We were referred to Norton Basu by our financial advisor. They are highly professional and deep experts in estate planning. I had a ton of questions and they answered all of them promptly and helped put our minds at ease. Highly recommend if you are looking for creating trusts.
I am so glad that I choose Norton Basu LLP to help me in the matters of my mothers estate after she passed. Not only was everyone I worked with very detailed oriented, easy to talk to, explained everything I had questions on in a way that i can understand it, they were very done to earth and professional.
Thank you Ms Norton and Ms Basu for helping me with the transfer of my mother's estate and the close of her Tax Business.
