Excellent service!! Highly recommend attorney John Chang! He was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and patient. I was referred to this firm by my neighbor as they had a great experience with Mr. Chang and he definitely met my expectations.

Not only did he set up my revocable living trust, will, power of attorney, advance health care directive, he also formed a limited liability company (LLC) for my rental property. Also, he was able to refer me to a CPA and a financial advisor. Now I feel like I have a great team of professionals looking after me so I don't have to worry about making the wrong decision.

If you are looking for an estate planning attorney, look no further. Go see Patinelli & Chang now!!!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Patinelli & Chang. Mr. Patinelli was very patient and understanding when my mother, at 95, decided to make changes to her estate plan. And when she passed, their thoughtful planning and careful execution made the whole process amazingly simple and worry-free. And we didn't have to pay any estate tax.

My wife and I have been so impressed with Mr. Patinelli and Mr. Chang that we have moved our own estate plan to their care. They are very professional, responsive, and really nice guys--family men, that have made us feel like part of the family.
