What Clients Are Saying

  • My family used Ed Terzian for a complicated and contentious situation and I felt compelled to write this review. After having engaged 3 other attorneys, one of which was from a high powered firm and had great reviews but failed us miserably, we found Ed as a result of a referral and were so thankful as he is extremely honest, consistently available when we needed him most, worked outside of his normal hours when needed so he went above and beyond for us.

  • My spouse and I met with Vanessa to create trusts for our 3 children, a task we had been putting off for at least 5 years feeling overwhelmed by what we thought we’d have to do; but Vanessa made it enormously simple for us.  Worksheet to help us identify all our assets, asking questions to walk us through options, talking about upside/downsides and relaying her experience with other clients in similar situations to help us decide which way we wanted to set things up.

  • Couldn’t help myself but chime in and put the word out that our experience working first with Vanessa and now with Ed has been fantastic!

    As the owner of a business myself, I always enjoy observing from a client perspective how a business is run and from that, I always look for lessons on how I might improve my own business from what I see in other operations.   (more…)
