Client Reviews
When my husband died, I felt I needed to honor him for his children and friends. Working through the plans was healthy because I've been a planner professionally. My daughter is not a planner and I know she would not find those endless tasks therapeutic like I did. So I've created a very specific estate plan with Diedre Braverman's counsel, detailed guidance, and support. Now I feel relief knowing that my death will not derail my daughter's life. Barbara J. M.
Diedre took the time to go beyond our initial assumptions and explained how we can benefit from strategies no one had explained to us before. Kathy
Diedre created a will, living trust, and special needs trust for us. She was very responsive and clear in her answers whenever we had questions. On issues, she provided excellent counsel. Her work product is outstanding in every way including its presentation, organization, completeness, and efficacy. We wholeheartedly recommend her. Daryl
We needed healthcare and financial planning documents in a hurry due to a medical situation. Not only did Diedre handle our situation with sensitivity and care, she exceeded our timing expectations. We have already recommended her to friends. James
Diedre was exceptional. Guided us through our estate planning with knowledge and patience. Her advice and guidance was insightful and calming. Melanie was amazing support. The whole experience was very rewarding and hugely professional. Debbie V.
Diedre and her staff were professional, incredibly efficient and competent. I was able to get my advance directives and will done expeditiously. I can rest assured that should I need any legal assistance Diedre and her staff will respond. As a medical professional I would highly recommend Braverman Law Group. Jennifer J.
It has been such an absolute gift working with Diedre, Bennett, Melanie and the Braverman Law Group. The level of knowledge and insight they all have, made the entire process of Estate Planning seamless for my entire family. My experience was superior, both in terms of legal expertise as well as in regards to the kindness and dedication they have provided every step of the way. Highly recommend! Heidi J.
I loved working with Diedre and Melanie! They are extremely professional and kind. They took the time to help me understand every step of the way! They are so smart in figuring out ways to customize my Living Trust and personalize it just for my needs. Highly recommended! Abbey V. H.
Diedre Braverman was a pleasure to work with. She took all the legal mumbo-jumbo of a trust and will and explained what I did not understand. The office run by Melanie, is always ready with whatever your expecting to see or pick up and they are really organized. It was a pleasure to work with both of them! Pete N.
