We highly recommend Paul to help with estate planning. My husband and I have complex assets, that left us paralyzed with even starting the process for over a year.

I have nothing but praise
and gratitude to him.

Upon contacting Paul, he simplified everything, educated us on what we needed to do, has been readily available to answer any questions and helped us tackle this huge responsibility. I have nothing but praise and gratitude to him and would recommend Paul to all of my friends. I get the sense that he can tackle any matter of complexity in this area. If you are overwhelmed by the task ahead, save yourself time and call Paul.

In regards to our situation, Paul was patient and through in his explanation. He was easy to understand and set us at ease. He is all so easy to reach and gets back to you immediately. It is a pleasure doing business with him.”

Paul has been very helpful in setting up wills and similar documents for me and my family. He is patient, well-informed and, most important, knowledgeable about the main considerations in this area. I would recommend him to others as well.

Paul

I hired Paul to prepare my will at the recommendation of a friend and was extremely satisfied with the experience. I was not familiar with the process of creating a will and he asked me all the right questions and took the time to focus on my unique child custody situation regarding my divorce. Paul really listened and then covered parts of the process I had not even considered.

Paul was prompt and responsive in all of our communications.

He is friendly and personable /easy to work with but also knows his business which gave me great confidence that my heirs will get theirs correctly so to speak should I check out unexpectedly.

Paul did estate planning for me and my wife — a complicated matter with significant net worth. He believes in working efficiently. For example, when doing an estate plan, he first has clients fill out a questionnaire, so he doesn’t waste time going over basic information. When possible, he charges a flat rate for the work — and sticks to it. He is also not dogmatic when it comes to process. if you have an idea for working more efficiently, he will try and accommodate you. Paul is digitally savvy, both in his own practice and on behalf of his clients. And he welcomes clients in nontraditional relationships. Finally, he has a good sense of humor and irony: something missing in a lot of attorneys (or at least they don’t exhibit it to their clients).

“Paul was very attentive listening to our personal situation and then tailored the Estate Plan, including Wills, Trusts, and Healthcare, to our family’s needs.

Paul is very personable, empathetic,
and easy to work with.

Maybe the best thing is his ability to explain legal terms in layman’s language, demystifying the process. We look forward to working with Paul over the coming years

My wife and I have worked with a number of attorneys through the years . We are in our mid seventies. It was now time to select an attorney that would help us set up our estate for the distribution of our assets to our five daughters when we were no longer alive.

We never knew any lawyer would be this professional.

Paul G. Holland is a must for anyone person, couple or family to hire for complete peace of mind in estate planning. We now know we made a great decision hiring Paul.

After meeting with Paul to set up a trust for my family, I was very impressed how my calls were immediately returned and all my questions were explained in terms I could understand. I thought this process would be long and extensive, but Paul made it easy and I would highly recommend his services.

Gail

I contacted Paul to assist me with my will and estate documents. He took the time to listen to my desires and provide suggestions based on his understanding of wills, POA (power of attorney), health care directives. He made a difficult task much easier and I would highly recommend him.

Neil

My estate involves two past marriages, my second wife’s death, trusts, stepchildren and my upcoming third marriage. Paul did a great job explaining the ‘ins and outs’ and potential scenarios that might occur, and then he customized our estate plan to our situation —

no cookie-cutter stuff here!

My fiancee and I were very pleased with his product and the fixed price approach for the completed package. Very thorough, first-class job.

He was able to simplify it
in a way that made sense to us.

He helped orchestrate our wills, trusts, and our advance directives. He was able to do it in a timely and professional fashion that we were impressed by. We plan on recommending Paul to friends and coworkers at similar stages in life.

    Paul Holland provided me with excellent services. He not only handled my case in the most professional manner, but you could tell that he honestly cared about the outcome of the case.


    Mr. Holland responded immediately to every question I had.

    He always kept me up to date on my estate plan.  He helped me achieve exactly the outcome that I was looking for and I’m truly grateful for all of the assistance.  I will not only use him again if ever needed, but I will recommend him to anyone that could use his services.

    Holly Wheeler

    Paul was extremely patient and helpful to my husband and me while we were preparing our wills. He clearly answered all of our questions and didn’t mind going over some matters several times until we fully understood them. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an honest and dedicated lawyer.

    Cathleen

    I was extremely pleased with Paul’s representation. He was easy to talk with and had honest and accurate answers. I can tell you from my experience that there are lawyers out there that care nothing for their client personally. They find ways to paper shuffle and delay proceedings, even against their client’s wishes, in order to increase their billable hours. Mr. Holland is NOT one of those lawyers. He will do everything he can to accomplish your estate planning goals and avoid unnecessary costs to his client.
