We feel so lucky that we were able to find Goldfarb & Luu...
When my dad got sick we didn't know what to do. His finances were a mess and we couldn't afford the care he needed. We had spoken to social workers, advocates, the hospital, the rehab facility, but no one could give us clear instructions on what to do... only advice on how to fill out some forms. We were referred by an advocate to a different lawyer who wanted to charge us before they even knew if they could help us. Not even 5 minutes of time... We were referred by a friend to Rebecca and Dinh. We did some research before calling them and they had so much good feedback on every website. We were skeptical at first. How can a law firm have all 5 stars and such rave reviews? We met with both of them for an extremely detailed overview of what we needed to do and further information needed. They were kind, calm and clear. They didn't rush us and I could tell that they care about their clients. They sprung into action immediately because some of the forms we needed were due within a few weeks. Their communication was constant by phone and email. All of their other staff were also smart, helpful and efficient, especially Anita. Despite our case being very complicated, we were able to achieve all the goals we discussed by the deadlines required. We feel so lucky that we were able to find Goldfarb & Luu and recommend them to anyone looking for an elder attorney!!!
Goldfarb & Luu impressed me with their knowledge and expertise.
Of all the decisions you will ever make in your life the most important will be the definition of the manner in which you wish to be treated during a lengthy convalescence due to injury or illness; the treatment you will receive at the at the end of your life, and the plans you make to provide for your loved ones after your death. One doesn't want to hesitate, nor make a mistake, regarding these times. There are dire consequences for you and the ones you love. You want to do it right the first time. There are no second chances. The area of Estate Planning and Elder Law is a maze in which even the best attorney, unfamiliar with this area, can get lost, make irreversible mistakes, and defeat their own best intentions. A smart Attorney, unless an expert in this area, will not attempt to navigate this complex area alone. As an attorney, retired, I am generally knowledgeable about the area of Estate Planning. But no expert. I know when I am out of my element and expertise. So I appealed to an attorney friend of mine, an expert in the field of Family Law, for the name of a law firm specializing in the field of Estate Planning and Elder Law. He recommended Goldfarb & Luu. At our initial interview Goldfarb & Luu impressed me with their knowledge and expertise. They corrected some of my own assumptions as to the process and law regarding my estate plan. I felt very comfortable with them, their expertise, and hired them to design my Health Care Directive and Estate Plan according to my wishes. The product of their work reflected the manner in which I wished to be cared for in the event of my incapacity due to illness or injury, and, of course, the manner in which I was to be treated at the end of my life. In the final analysis only you know specifically how you wish to be treated under those circumstances. It is unfair to burden your relatives and friends with second-guessing your desires under the pressure of your incapacity or death. The best of your intentions may fail in the absence of expert planning. There are no second chances. It's "too late when it's too late!” My Health Care Directive and my Estate Plan are in place. I rest easy knowing that Goldfarb & Luu Incorporated my express wishes in those documents, and that those decisions will not burden my family or friends.

I am so very grateful that I was referred to Goldfarb & Luu
Where to start? I am so very grateful that I was referred to Goldfarb & Luu since choosing an estate planning attorney is so important, they will be the one helping you decide/express what will happen to your estate after you are no longer here to make your wishes known on your own. Dinh Luu prepared a Will, Living Trust, Power of Attorney and Advanced Health Care Directive for my husband and me. She made the whole process painless and had referrals ready to other great professionals when I had questions in regards to my son’s life insurance policies and a few other issues that came up during preparation of our documents. She made my husband and me very comfortable which was really key since during the estate planning process one needs to be open and honest when discussing the most intimate details of their personal life, finances and wishes. She was very patient and professional. Dinh took the time needed to explain any pertinent legal concepts which allowed us to make informed decisions regarding all of the issues for our specific estate planning needs. The presentation of the final product was the icing on the cake. Our estate planning documents came in a very organized leather case as well as digital copies on two small silver flash drives. I feel that Goldfarb & Luu gave us a high quality estate plan and in doing so they became our advisors for life with regards to our estate plan as well as other legal needs. Thank you so much!
We highly recommend Goldfarb & Luu to anyone needing estate planning.
Our experience with the law firm of Goldfarb & Luu in the preparation of our family trust was nothing but positive. We entered into the idea of creating a family trust with some trepidation over the complexity and enormity of the task. Our fears were put to rest upon meeting Rebecca and Dinh. The initial interview was conducted in our home, and our questions and concerns were addressed. They defined what was needed to establish our trust and told us what documents and information we needed to provide. The worksheets and checklists made the gathering of the information an easy task for us. Their efficiency in working with us to create the trust made the entire estate planning experience so much easier than we thought it was going to be. They helped us to examine the necessary protections we needed to have in order that our estate be secure for us and for our heirs. For example, they recommended an umbrella liability policy for the protection of our assets, something we had not considered. Rebecca and Dinh were personable, professional, and efficient throughout the entire process. We were encouraged to call them whenever we had questions or concerns; their flat rate fee for their services covered everything we needed and we were not charged every time we had a question. We appreciated that. We highly recommend Goldfarb & Luu to anyone needing estate planning. For us, working with them was a pleasure, and we are secure in the knowledge that our family’s estate plan has been solidly constructed.

I'm so grateful that I found two honest, honorable, and trustworthy people to handle my legal affairs.
Sadly, my wonderful mom died in August 2012. The experience was devastating, but thankfully there was a Trust to guide us. I realized, at age 65, that I needed to get my affairs in order for my children. I needed a Trust. I was nervous and intidmidated by what I thought would be a difficult and expensive experience. I was referred to Rebecca Goldfarb. We met, and I was immediately comfortable with her knowledge and demeanor.I later met with her partner, Dinh Luu to complete the estate planning process. I was equally impressed with her knowledge, and patience with my long-suffering questions. With great ease, efficiency and hand-holding from Rebecca and Dinh, I now have a Living Trust, Will, Advance Health Care Directive and Durable Power of Attorney. I'm relieved that this will help guide my children in the future. Thanks to Rebecca and Dinh, this has been a pleasant experience. They continue to check up on me to ensure that I'm OK. In this crazy world, I'm so grateful that I found two honest, honorable, and trustworthy people to handle my legal affairs.

Goldfarb & Luu assisted me with creating a “mini" estate plan for someone in her 20s without a lot of assets. Rebecca and Dinh are very friendly and helpful.

After the birth of our twin boys, my wife and I realized we needed to have some sort of plan but had no idea where to start. Luckily we met with Rebecca and Dinh who helped us create a comprehensive estate plan that put our minds at ease. They listened to our particular situation, and then expertly explained our options and their recommendations. They also patiently re-explained all the steps involved and the different choices we had whenever we had questions. Their services were truly personalized. We did not receive a “cookie cutter” solution; instead they customized a plan to our specific needs and desires. With Rebecca and Dinh’s help and expertise, we now feel confident that our family has a plan that is complete and makes sense to us.

I am a grateful client of Goldfarb & Luu. Rebecca Goldfarb and Dinh Luu helped me settle my father's estate and then some time later, they helped me with my own estate planning.

We highly recommend Golfarb and Luu!
When we were calling lawyers to help us get our legal affairs in order before having our first child, we were immediately impressed by Rebecca Goldfarb, and chose to go with Goldfarb & Luu over the other firms with whom we spoke. Not only was Rebecca extremely knowledgeable about everything we needed to do to prepare for having children, but she was also warm and friendly. From the first conversation, we really felt like she cared about us and our personal concerns and needs. We were really appreciative when she came to meet with us at our apartment when I was in my third trimester of my pregnancy. Rebecca and Dinh followed up with us via Skype and answered our thousands of questions via email. We continue to feel supported by them, as they take the initiative to check in with us regulalry to see if there are any changes we need to make to our documents. Because of Goldfarb & Luu, we feel confident that our legal affairs are taken care of both for ourselves and for our daughter. We highly recommend Golfarb and Luu!
