Testimonials

I was so lucky to have found such a great attorney.

I use Attorney Wessels with my UC Berkeley legal plan.  I was so lucky to have found such a great attorney.  She is always on time for appointments and has a lot of great suggestions.  I am a single senior who needs a lot of help.  She also made accomodations for my cats if I die before them.  She has a lot of useful information.  There is a notary right below her building you can use.  I had great success with her and I would recommend her. I drive all the way from Rio Vista.  My former supervisor from UC Berkeley suggested her to me.

I highly recommend her.

My spouse and I came to Sarah for help with our same sex family legal documentation and were extremely pleased with the service we received. The area of same sex marriage is enormously confusing and in-flux and we entered the process feeling overwhelmed and frankly terrified of the mountain of paperwork that might await us. Sarah was immediately responsive on the phone. In person, she was warm, welcoming, and competent and clearly knew the field (few legal professionals do). She interviewed us and created the trust, will, and other documents we needed to ensure security for us and our son. She followed through quickly and sent copies to all the appropriate parties. We have recommended Sarah several times and will do so in the future. Sarah is a wonderful asset for our family and we plan to keep her as our lawyer for years to come!

Sarah was instrumental in preparing the estate planning documents for my wife and I.  She was great to work with and took the mystery out of the process.  I would wholeheartedly recommend her to friends and family.

Sarah Wessels updated our estate planning collateral recently. She is very professional, caring, not pretentious, and demonstrated excellent counsel as she took the time to listen to our personal situation and answering all our questions.  We found her to be very passionate about estate planning as evidenced by her website.  As a matter of fact, it was her website that originally attracted us to use her services and meet with her. We had already met and interviewed a couple of other attorneys and after meeting Sarah, our decision was easy.  She was very willing to work with our ARAG legal benefits provider and though her main office is in the Oakland area, she was very flexible meeting us in our area (Livermore) having a network of remote offices throughout the bay area. We liked her relaxed style and holistic approach to estate planning.

I had recently purchased a home in SF and was very concerned about the impact to family if something were to happen to me. I always hear cases about the hardships involved with probate sales and disputes amongst family members that can occur. I contacted Sarah regarding my concerns and wishes to setup a Living Trust. She responded quickly and we setup an appointment for a consultation. My family members came along and had questions that she not only answered but provided clarification and examples of the law. I knew immediately  that she was very good at what she did and knew the Estate Law’s well.  She also gave good insight and reasoning, which helped clarify how the Trust would work. I felt confident that I was working with the right person. Sarah is extremely organized and prepared all the documents in a nice neat binder, that made the signing process easy. I had my parents setup their Trusts with Sarah too. I definitely recommend Sarah for all your estate plans, premarital agreements, probate, trust administration, adoptions, and tax matters.

Sarah has advised me on estate planning and she is everything you want an attorney and counselor to be: thoughtful, professional, and thorough.  She’s easy to reach when you need her and follows up to make sure the issue you raised has been successfully resolved.  I recommend her and her services enthusiastically.

Patricia A. Pelfrey, Richmond, California

I knew I had found someone that I could trust.

We came to Sarah for help with our first-time estate planning. As an LGBT married couple, we had a lot of questions about our status and its impact on our estate, our taxes, and a range of other issues. Sarah really put us at ease and helped us through the process. We’ve really enjoyed working with her.

Sarah completed a comprehensive estate plan, including living trust, for my husband and me.  We couldn’t be happier with our experience.  She was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with.  She clarified the process, and delivered everything in a timely manner.  It is reassuring to have her as a resource for family law matters, and we have happily referred her to friends.

Sarah  helped me with estate planning by preparing my living trust, including an advanced directive, and durable power of attorney. She did a terrific job and presented it to me very well organized in a folder with tabs. Sarah was very easy to work with and answered all me questions promptly. She was very accessable and made appts with me at a convenient time for my schedule. She is easy to talk to, informal yet very knowledgeable,  and I felt totally comfortable giving her all the information she needed to put together my living trust. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Sarah, and would recommend her to any of my friends or colleagues.

Sam A, Pleasanton, CA

It was great working with Sarah.  My partner and I engaged her service to write wills and other documents necessitated by the absence of marriage rights.  Sarah’s process was thorough and she made the process easy.

Ron C, San Francisco, CA

Ms. Wessels is an excellent and caring attorney, and she is enjoyable to work with. You couldn’t ask more from a family attorney. She is passionate at what she does, and takes the time to really understand your situation to provide you with good advice. I was searching for a family attorney for a while and couldn’t find one that I really felt comfortable with. I made many calls and had numerous telephone conversations with family law attorneys in San Francisco and Oakland. I was glad to finally find Ms. Wessels and am very happy with her work.

I am so glad I found Sarah.  It took me a long time to decide to update my Will to a Living Will due to personal questions that I had regarding life changing decisions.  Sarah was very easy to talk with, extremely patient, caring, informative, and took her time to explain everything. Oh, and did I also mention that she is really sweet.  I am sure I asked her some of the same questions over and over, and she always patiently went over everything as many times as I needed her to.  I never felt rushed, although I know we talked for quite a while.  By the time I was satisfied with the information, I knew I had found someone that I could trust.  She also made sure to mention to never hesitate to call her if I had any other questions.
