Testimonials From Clients

"I've never been an Executor or Administrator of an estate, so I needed someone I could trust to guide me through the legal process. Jeff and his top notch staff flawlessly guided me through the challenges of being an executor during the 2 years of getting my uncle's estate in order. I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking for trust services or estate planning. You will find yourself in very capable hands."

Harry C. Wallengren, Jr., Cromwell, CT


“We were fortunate to have Jeff Crown recommended to us in 1996. Since then we have never looked back.

Our CPA firm and our Financial Adviser found the trusts that Jeff drew up to be perfectly executed and in our best interest. They continue to note to us: "He cares about your well being."
We recommend Jeff and his staff without reservation to anyone considering a trust lawyer.”

“While working on our financial planning, we realized that we also had to work on our estate planning. Upon the recommendation of a good friend we decided to meet and talk with Jeffrey Crown. After our first meeting we knew we wanted him to be our attorney. His knowledge and professionalism were evident.

We reviewed with him our needs, our wishes and our special family circumstances. He listened intently, asked specific questions tactfully and then proceeded to outline the positives and negatives of various legal solutions. His summaries of our several meetings served to keep us fully informed and to thoroughly understand the actions we were taking. He was most sensitive to our special needs while at the same time retaining complete objectivity.

Several times over the years, changes in our family circumstances made it necessary for us to amend our estate plans. Always, in his prompt responsive way, he was there for us. During one of these times we witnessed his ability to work with other professionals, always keeping our best interest in mind. This has helped greatly to keep our plans up to date.
Recently, upon request, Jeffrey met with us, our family and our financial planner for a general review of our estate plans. This provided everyone concerned with an opportunity to become aware of our intentions.

We recommend Jeffrey Crown without reservation. He has added peace of mind to our retirement.”

Mr. and Mrs. Vincent Hricko, Torrington, CT


"I want to take this opportunity to thank Jeffrey Crown for providing legal and estate counsel for over thirty five years to three generations of our family.

The Trustlawyer LLC team helped direct the Bruemmer family in preserving wealth through the years by acting in the utmost professional and knowledgeable manner. I appreciate Jeff's help in acting as a family mediator and in his role as our counsellor during the difficult time of settling my father's estate.

As Executor, I felt confidant that, while I had difficult medical issues, our needs were being met and acted upon. Thank you Jeff and Staff"

“I've had wills and trusts drawn for me in the past by general practice attorneys. Jeff specializes in trust law, and I can tell you there's a huge difference in the quality and thoughtfulness of the product. There are so many concepts to think about when preparing documents such as these. Jeff is able to explain them in language that's easy to understand and then incorporate them into the drafts with the proper legal language. I feel I have a most thorough and expert set of trust documents now, and that they'll "do their job" if and when necessary.”

Neal J. Zimmerman, West Hartford, CT


“After my husband died, I became the owner of a multimillion dollar business. I knew we had stocks, IRAs, insurance policies, property, etc. We also had a family of three, their spouses, and grandchildren. Prior to my husband's death, I was a domestic engineer, active in community affairs, school and church. I depended upon my husband for handling all money matters. It was all overpowering. I knew I had to have legal advice to sort out my life. After some time with Jeff Crown, I knew every detail there is to know about a will, especially when a family and a business are involved. I now know of wills, taxes, power of attorney, and much more. He continues to keep me informed of all the latest changes that come about with taxes. When you need him, he is always there -- immediately. When you leave his office you feel what you have accomplished. He knows his stuff, he is knowledgeable and there is no use of legal jargon that you do not understand. I called a business person with much money who I recommended and her spontaneous reply. After 10 years I still hear from Jeff about new changes. Her answer was ‘I think he's an excellent guy.  Thanks for the referral.’”
