John is an excellent wordsmith, and did a great job of putting my thoughts, ideas, and issues into a clear legal document.

He is also a delightful person to work with and has an excellent group of to-workers.
He was willing to spend time explaining things.
We were referred to John by a neighbor and, frankly, couldn’t be happier with the responsiveness and quality of service. The estate planning services we’ve received in the past pale in comparison. Very, very pleased with the process and breadth of estate planning John provided.

As a new resident of Arizona, with business and financial interests in numerous states, I was looking for a skilled and competent estate attorney who could help me prepare an estate plan. Finding someone with a high degree of knowledge and competence was very important to me because my estate will be paying estate tax when I pass.

John did his undergraduate work at Stanford, and it shows. He is highly intelligent and very good at what he does. He has great attention to detail.

I highly recommend John. He is a good guy to have represent your interests.
I was looking for an attorney on Phoenix who could assist met me in resolving my son’s estate. Found John on AVVO and since I am 2500 miles away on the East Coast I was concerned as we could not immediately have a face to face meeting. John, Abigail Mills (Attorney & Director), Jacqueline Bartholomew (Paralegal) were attentive, responsive and shared my sense of urgency and priority getting through the complex regulations of formal probate providing a successful outcome.
John guided me though the entire process of executing my trust. He provided complete explanations and assistance in the decisions I had to make. The entire experience was much easier than I had anticipated. I felt totally comfortable and I am now relieved that I have completed this important step in managing my affairs.

We asked John Even to revise our wills and trust this year. One of us recently received a diagnosis of metastasized cancer, so we knew this revision was an urgent problem. We were especially concerned because John had warned us of some recent changes in state law. John understood, and swiftly gathered his staff to coordinate bringing all our papers up to date. They minimized the number of office visits for us. He explained every necessary change thoroughly, and greatly relieved our minds. The papers were ready to sign sooner than we expected, in his clean, attractive and very comfortable offices.
I met John Even 13 years ago when he constructed my mother’s estate plan and we reconnected recently after her passing. John has been an expert guide through the process of settling the estate that included residences and vehicles in two states. This required coordinated interactions with an attorney in another state, a tax professional, two financial institutions and the Departments of Transportation in two states. John was always supportive and responsive by phone or in more detail by email to both simple and complex questions. Settling an estate is often a once in a lifetime task but John made the process logical, sequential and completable. Highly recommended.
I needed a court order to become Guardian of an elderly aunt due to dementia. As Co-Trustee to her Trust I needed to take control to protect her assets. John handled setting up the court hearing for the Guardianship. John was helping with various problems through out the difficult three years. With my aunt’s death in February 2013, John handled the process of changing the Trust to my EIN. He was involved up to and including the paper work and instructions for me to prepare to close the Trust.

Excellent attorney with strong character and high morals.
