    Trust and Estate Planning can be confusing and unpleasant. We found the opposite to be true with Patrick's assistance. We experienced concise, clear communication, excellent command of the field, solid drafting, and a high level of attention to detail that made finalizing our estate plans easy. We would not hesitate to recommend Patrick and his firm.

    Daniel is friendly and personable with a sense of humor, certainly not a stereotypical attorney. I found an error in my trust document which Daniel corrected to my satisfaction. I had some questions about how the trust operated and why certain items should be placed in the trust which Daniel answered clearly and persuasively. Daniel seemed to be completely competent when drawing up my estate plans and I was very satisfied with the service that he performed.

    Concerned & Efficient Law Office,I am so grateful to them. My mother took very ill and I came into the area to navigate her through two weeks in an oncology ward. Among the litany of things needing taken care of was her estate planning.When I happened on Robert Ross the first person I spoke to showed real concern for the situation and Robert called me within a few hours and took as much time as needed to explain what I needed to be aware of. Everything was taken care of excellently. So thankful.

    We began our relationship with Bob Ross in 1993 with the formation of our small business. He also assisted us when we closed it some nine years later. As a result of his excellent services, we set up new Wills and Trusts. Over the years, Bob has provided much needed legal advice and was also able to provide counsel when dealing with an international banking issue that needed prompt resolution. We feel his firm is of the highest integrity and always puts his clients needs first.

    Overall Excellent Robert Ross and the the Law Offices of Robert J. Ross have consistently and professionally provided thorough and personal legal advice and service for me and our corporations since 1983. I know that I have been clearly heard on a number of past legal concerns. And the legal direction offered by Robert and associates resulted in effective and favorable resolution. I cannot remember a time during our relationship with Robert and Associates in which we were not entirely satisfied with his service. Consider engaging Robert and Associates with our hesitation.

    Concerned & Efficient Law Office,I am so grateful to them. My mother took very ill and I came into the area to navigate her through two weeks in an oncology ward. Among the litany of things needing taken care of was her estate planning. I called a list of attorneys who either wanted far too much money or were unavailable for a month. When I happened on Robert Ross the first person I spoke to showed real concern for the situation and Robert himself called me within a few hours, and took as much time as needed for me to understand what I needed to be aware of at this critical time. His associates efficiently and effectively drew up drafts, got them to me, got themselves into the hospital to speak with my mom directly so that all matters could be taken care of within a matter of five days. Thank you so much. I recommend Robert Ross and his associates to the furthest and highest degree.
