Client Testimonials

I can’t say enough good things about my experience working with Nancy Budd on our estate planning. She is very knowledgeable and articulate in explaining the many complicated aspects of estate planning. Most important she makes what could be very difficult and uncomfortable topics like advance health care directives easy to have.

As my parents got older they needed to update their Trust and Power of Attorney, and create a Living Will and Advance Directives. They had previously worked with a company on Oahu, but they found their fees to be very expensive. Also during this period of my parent’s life, we needed a more personal touch and direct contact with the attorney versus having to deal with someone off island on the phone. A friend of ours referred Nancy Budd to us.

From their initial visit with Nancy Budd, they felt very comfortable working with her and her staff. Nancy patiently helped my parents and guided them through the complex legal process of completing their Trust, Power of Attorney, Living Will and Advance Directives. Her fees were competitive but most important of all, Nancy and her staff (Ululani Perreira) were compassionate and accessible.

After my father died Nancy helped my mother update all records to reflect his death and to make sure all legal documents for my mother were updated and taken care of. When my mother recently passed away Nancy was again there to help us with all legal matters in carrying out my parent’s Trust that they had painstakingly developed. She was patient and compassionate throughout this very difficult process in our life.

I am very grateful for the legal advice and compassion Nancy provided us during an important time in our life when we realized that my parents were aging, and we had to prepare for their final journey. My husband and I have now set up our own estate plans, grateful for Nancy’s attention, expertise and advice. I highly recommend Nancy Budd to provide legal service for your Trust, make a Power of Attorney, Living Will and Advance Directives.

Nancy Budd is a woman of integrity. She is a woman of her word and her word is her bond. She is intelligent and is an expert in performing her work. Knowing the law, Nancy is a consummate problem solver and in my experience with Nancy, there is nothing she couldn’t resolve or solve regarding my personal legal requests.

Here is what makes Nancy a cut above any of the lawyers I have ever engaged. She treats each client personally and not only cares about their legal matters, but genuinely cares about helping each client through sometimes difficult and emotional life experiences.

For example: my mother, Anna Sloggett, was a long-time client of Nancy’s. Over the years, a comprehensive, clear and concise estate plan was created and updated as my mother’s situation changed. In the years she was dying, Anna had many questions about her personal and financial well-being. As mother could no longer travel, Nancy made regular visits to Anna’s home to work through and sensitively alleviate her concerns. For that and many other reasons, my mother loved Nancy as a trusted advisor and dear friend to the day she passed. Nancy continues to be a treasure to our family.
