I only have good things to say about [Ivette].

“I've worked with Ivette to draw up our family trust documents and I only have good things to say about her. She is competent, thorough, and honest. She did a great job of educating me along the way and answering every question that I and my wife had.

We procrastinated a fair bit throughout this process and Ivette's office was good about gently reminding us to get our documents together and nudging us to get everything done. I've sent a couple of other people to speak to Ivette and they've each relayed to me that working with her was much easier than they expected estate planning work to be.”

  • My objectives have been realized, and you both were a big part of those accomplishments!

    “I have experienced much progress during the past two months. My mother has settled into her new skilled nursing facility and seems reasonably content there. With your help I successfully transferred title for 10% of my property from my trust to my mother’s trust. I also applied for Medi-Cal benefits on behalf of my mother and just yesterday received approval. My objectives have been realized, and you both were a big part of those accomplishments! Thank you very much for all your help.”

  • The whole process was made very easy...

    “I used the services of Santaella after hearing a community presentation by Ms. Santaella on "Trusts". I am so happy and pleased with their services. I worked with Ivette and she was so efficient, thorough and explained the process to me completely as we completed my documents. The whole process was made very easy starting with a questionnaire, prompt responses by email, meeting with her and then finalizing, complete with the notary present in her office. Her office even handled the recording of the trust and I promptly received my copy of the recorded final document in the mail.”

  • She is truly passionate about what she does, and her integrity is of the highest caliber.

    “Ivette helped us draft a very specific Advanced Health Care Directive and a comprehensive will. She took the time to get to know the needs and values of my wife and I, all the while being sensitive and kind, especially since drafting a will can inherently be sensitive in nature. I have since recommended her services to my family, and I will continue to refer to her. She is truly passionate about what she does, and her integrity is of the highest caliber.”

    “Ivette Santaella is very personable and makes the entire process of creating an estate plan much easier. What I appreciated most was her willingness to help me through the pre-work, answering questions and making sure I was clear on the language and terms of the trust. I value her as a knowledgeable attorney and someone I trust.”
