Managing a parent’s final years is emotional, complex, and often frustrating. From setting up a Power of Attorney for mom until settling the final details of her Trust, Lucille has been a calm, thoughtful, and expert adviser. When banks, accountants, insurance companies and all else sometimes feel overwhelming, Lucille and Naomi, in office, on the phone, or through email, are a source of support, friendliness, and humor. Whenever I have a thought or question, I feel as if they drop everything to give me an informed response. I feel fortunate to have the Law Office of Lucille Des Jardins to rely on.

I have had the pleasure of working with Lucille for several years now. I want people to know that in addition to being extremely knowledgeable, she is accessible and compassionate. Such kindness was especially appreciated when dealing with my mother’s affairs after her sudden death. With such a vast amount of work to be done on the trust and other issues that came up, Lucille and her staff were able to help me wade through all the trustee duties with ease. I knew if I had a question come up, they were there for me. Lucille has worked on estate planning, trust administration, advanced health care directives and several other items as well. I am very happy to send my friends to her for their needs as well. When you get such a fabulous combination of knowledge, sincerity and compassion you have a winner!

Lucille has recently handled a number of legal matters for me regarding my elderly father. These have included advice on an existing trust, and establishing a conservatorship. Ms Des Jardins is extremely knowledgeable and thorough, and is very accessible and responsive to her clients. My emails and phone calls are always returned within a day, and her legal documents are flawless. Her office staff also provides excellent support and assistance. Lucille has helped me through some very challenging emotional and legal issues with a wonderful blend of professionalism and genuine compassion. Her fees are completely reasonable; she clearly cares about her clients far more than her billing. I highly recommend Lucille Des Jardins.
