"My husband and I had been talking about creating a trust for years with little action and lots of procrastination. We feared the process would be long, daunting and time-consuming. Boy, were we wrong!

Marina at Modlin Legal Services made the process smooth, quick and virtually painless. Our meetings with her were not only informative, but quite entertaining as well. Marina is personable, highly knowledgeable, and willing to hold your hand as much or as little as you need. She was always very responsive (one time responding to an email we sent on a Friday night within a couple of minutes). She makes what seems like a long project very doable and not daunting at all!

We were shocked at how quickly the process went from start to finish. When we came upon some roadblocks (between husband and wife), she gave some very effective suggestions on ways to navigate the situation. We highly recommend Marina and will be using her for all of our future legal needs."
