I have been a client of Andrew Matteson’s for several years. He is easy to work with, understands your needs and how to accomplish your goals regarding your estate.  He goes over every item and walks you through every step.  His staff is friendly and professional.  I would highly recommend him.

August 7, 2019

Initially, I started my will and trust process online with Legal Zoom. However, it wasn’t working out because I felt these two legal documents needed a lawyer I can trust who specialize in these matters.  In addition to the thoroughly organized binder containing all my legal documents, Andrew introduced me to something perfect! He provided myself and all the people I designated to manage my estate complementary USB cards.  Having this card readily available in my wallet is fantastic because if I become incapacitated, it is easier for my designated executors to execute my wishes. Now here’s why you can trust this testimonial.  I am a young Generation X person in my early 40’s who makes a living developing e-commerce sites. You can imagine a lot of intelligence going into the work I do.  So believe me when I say Andrew is the right person and someone you can trust to set up your will and trust right!  I also want to thank Andrew’s staff for their experience in making the process smooth.  Thank you, Team!

July 16, 2019

I have recommended Andy many times through the past 15 years and my clients have always returned highly satisfying reports. Thank you for helping me to get my house in order.

July 10, 2019

Andy was very helpful working with me on my trust. He was always patient in pointing out various ways of dealing with problems which might arise in the future.  Andy is easy to work with and I was comfortable with his suggestions and would recommend him to any who might need his services.

July 3, 2019

I was very impressed with Andrew from the very first visit to his office. He brought up things I needed to know and do in order to complete the things to be completed.  I would highly recommend to all.  Thanks to him I now know all about my Will and everything else that needed taken care of.

June 24, 2019

Thank you for continuing to provide me with excellent advice and necessary revisions to my Trust to keep it up to date. I have appreciated you and your staff answering my questions and taking whatever time I need to complete the update Trust to my satisfaction.

June 3, 2019

We were very pleased with Mr. Matteson and his staff. Every step in the process was explained thoroughly – for the first time we completely understand how to carefully choose the wording in our Will and Trust.  This was not our first experience with an attorney, but our best experience.

May 28, 2019

Andrew Matteson handled my parent’s estate and when the time came helped me settle their wishes. At that time we started our family trust with him as were so happy with his services. Now 17 years later we updated our trust and again Andrew and his staff were amazing.  He is so helpful and so knowledgeable 100% great service

May 20, 2019

My Trust was done originally in 2004, family circumstances required an update. Mr. Matteson professionalism and attention to detail was the reason I returned to his services for the update.

May 14, 2019

Andy is a wonderful attorney, we’ve worked with him on settling my parents estate as well as updating our living trust. He is extremely thorough, detail orientated with excelled communication skills.  He explains every step of the process and follows through with commitments.  We highly recommend his services.

May 13, 2019

It was a pleasure working with Andrew. He helped us clearly define our goals and develop the roadmap to insure our goals were met.  I recently lost my husband and Andrew reviewed the plan my husband and I made, discussed options and took the time to help me clearly understand all the changes.  I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone.

May 9, 2019

Andrew Matteson is everything you would hope to get in an Estate Attorney. I retained him to help guide me with my former father-in-law’s estate as the successor trustee. He was well organized, knowledgeable of the law and the procedures in helping me settle the estate and distribute assets to the beneficiaries.  Given his thoroughness careful follow through and well organized office support staff, I could not recommend him more highly.  I was thorough pleased with his work and guidance.

April 29, 2019

We really appreciated the way Andy presented the “blue print” of how our Trust would be set up. Andy and his team made the entire process so easy for us.  Once we received the final Trust binder, we were very impressed with how comprehensive it was.  We thank you for giving us piece of mind.  (

April 1, 2019

Mr. Matteson, Thank you for all your help and fabulous advice. You were very thorough and informative. Gave us peace of mind.  Thank you.

March 25, 2019

Our Attorney, Mr. Andrew R. Matteson, was very patient with our procrastination and numerous questions. It’s not a subject most people care to discus, let alone think about.  Thank you for helping us through this difficult, but necessary, step we all should take.

March 21, 2019

The Law office of Andrew Matteson was highly recommended to my wife and I by our financial planner in 1998. Merging two families together we wanted someone that understood our needs and had the ability to explain things to us clearly. We have met with Andy on several occasions since then and he has always been very professional and always listens to our needs.  I would highly recommend Andy and his staff for any of your Elder Care needs or estate planning.

March 21, 2019

Andrew Matteson is the kind of attorney for older people in particular. He spoke slowly and precisely, making sure that we were understanding the information he was conveying to us.  He also spoke to us in laymen’s terms so that we were able to understand.  We certainly will recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney among our family and friends.

March 6, 2019

Our neighbors recommended Andrew Matteson to us. He made are experience in revising our trust very enjoyable.  They’re so knowledgeable and caring.  I would recommend them to family and friends in Sun City, Del Webb.

March 6, 2019

My wife and I needed to update our trust and we were pleased with the services provided by Andy and his staff. Andy did his homework and was well prepared for our meeting.  He listened carefully to our needs, asked important question we had not considered, and created a diagram as we talked to ensure a common understanding. This diagram served as a blueprint to the high level structure of the trust, making the process easy to follow and in terms easy to understand, and at the same time helped us streamline and simplify the trust.  Andy and his team were very thorough and efficient and we were very impressed with the end product.

March 4, 2019

Outstanding by all means. Since our relationship started 12 years ago, Andrew Matteson has produced and delivered, on our behalf, the best Estate Planning.  His team have serviced our interests beyond expectations and we feel that our directives have been duly stated and will provide the security that our family relays on.

February 22, 2019

Very good and understanding and patient. A very caring person. Thank you.

January 24, 2019

Everything we contracted for was completed on time and at the price agreed to. Andy’s information and advice was given clearly and with sound back-up.  Andy is very knowledgeable in his specialty and is a joy to work with.

January 17, 2019

I contacted Andrew Matteson through a referral as I needed to revise my Trust. The original Trust document was drawn up by a Southern California Law firm and was my only exposure to the process.  I must say my experience with Andy was quite a contrast.  I was particularly impressed with Andy’s patience and attention to the many details that are so critical to creating an infallible document.  The original Trust was lacking in a couple of important areas and with Andy’s eye for detail and with his advice the corrections were made.  He clearly explains the procedure, the mutual responsibilities and the required follow ups.   The experience was gratifying.  I would proudly recommend this law firm without hesitation.

December 31, 2018

The association with Andrew was painless and more than satisfactory. His staff is well-trained and efficient and available at all times. It was a pleasure to do business with someone as personal and knowledgeable as Andrew and his staff.

December 10, 2018

Andrew R. Matteson was a pleasure to work with and answered my questions clearly. He was extremely organized and appointments were made in a timely manner and easy to arrange.

December 5, 2018

We have rated Andrew Matteson and his team a “10” because our recent (& previous) experience with them has reflected “outstanding” work, in every aspect of the Trust update process. We particularly appreciate the detailed blueprint & diagrams that Andrew creates & uses to give us a visual picture of the Trust decision we made.  He is very thorough in explaining every aspect of the trust, so we can be confident that each decision we made, clearly represents what we feel is in our best interest – and, we actually leave his office each visit, clearly understanding every document that we initiated and signed.  Andrew’s team members are friendly and helpful, as well.  We have and will continue to highly recommend the services of Andrew Matteson’s law firm to many.

November 26, 2018

Our original trust was prepared in 1998. Since then we’ve had a couple of Restatements.  When we needed our estate plan looked at again we were referred to Mr. Matteson.  He far surpassed our expectation. He analyzed our estate plan and discussed reasons why certain items should be changed.  No other attorney has provided us with as much information as Mr. Matteson.  For the first time we have a good understanding of what our trust does.  We highly recommend Mr. Matteson, and his staff, to anyone who has estate planning questions.

October 31, 2018

He got the job done correctly and it was complicated. It took longer than I expected with so many office visits and cost more than I expected. His staff is excellent.

October 12, 2018

I am completely satisfied that Andy was able to assist me in getting all my thoughts on paper. He made recommendations that were very helpful to me in making my estate plan complete.  Andy took enough time with me so that all my concerns and questions were answered.

October 11, 2018

I have worked with Andrew and his staff on three Trusts since 2006. They are always very professional and reliable.  I rest easy with them on my side.

October 9, 2018

We sold our previous home and needed to transfer the necessary deed requirements to our new residence. Andy Matteson explained and carried out the update information in a very professional and competent timely manner with minimal office contacts on our part.  We definitely recommend him to anyone needing to seek legal advice.

September 29, 2018

When my wife and I were looking for an Attorney to draw up a trust for us we sought the recommendation from friends and was referred to Andrew. We found Andrew’s relaxed visual method of explaining development of our trust to be extremely helpful and easy to understand.  Andrew was in no hurry and took the necessary time to ensure we had all of our questions answered to our satisfaction.  The entire process of getting our trust outlined the way we wanted it all the way through the signing of the documents was unrushed.  Andrew’s staff was very helpful and enjoyable to deal with.  We would highly recommend Andrew Matteson to anyone who was interested in a competent and caring attorney to help with your estate planning.

September 25, 2018

Enjoyed meeting Andy and his staff. Was very impressed how everything was explained! Diagram was of great help to understand the making of a trust and how it’s “built”. The whole meeting was very impressive. Would definitely recommend!

September 24, 2018

Attorney Andrew Matteson patiently took the time to explain to us page by page on how to fill up estate planning documents by giving us examples, choices and scenarios.

September 4, 2018

Mr. Matteson was very well organized. Our binder was in very good order with tabs identifying the various sections.  He explained everything in detail and answered any questions.  Our Dr. was impressed with the HIPAA document.

August 23, 2018

Extremely professional and complete. I recommended Andy Matteson’s office to my son and daughter and will certainly recommend Andy’s office and practice to other friends.

August 22, 2018

We employed Andy to execute a Revocable Living Trust for us. He spent a lot of time and effort to totally satisfy our wishes.  Since we wanted to leave a good part of our trust to charities, Andy worked closely with our financial advisor to make sure the charities would receive 100% of the amount designated to them.  Andy also recommended a fiduciary service to us.  We were very happy with them as well.  Andy and his staff were very personable and easy to work with.  We highly recommend Andrew R. Matteson, Attorney.

August 15, 2018

The entire team was: professional, knowledgeable, answered our many questions. Were on time and we never felt rushed.  It is very comforting to put our affairs in order with Andrew Matteson.

August 9, 2018

Andrew Matteson Law has been extremely helpful in dealing with all the necessary things after my husband passed away, with updating our trust. The whole staff was very friendly and helpful even with questions I had regarding articles of mail I had received.  Thankful they were there to walk me through the whole process.

August 8, 2018

We just updated our family trust with Andy and enjoyed the experience. He is methodical and clearly explains each step of the process.  We never felt rushed in our appointments and were never made to feel inept if there was something we didn’t understand.  He also helped simplify our original trust which we appreciated.  Andy’s admin, Sam, was terrific too.  She is friendly, professional and helpful at all times.  We would have no hesitation in referring Andrew Matteson’s law firm to anyone, in fact, we already have!

July 19, 2018

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Andrew Matteson to be your attorney. He shows that he cares very much about his clients and about what he is doing.

June 1, 2018

We can’t think of anything that Andy didn’t cover.  He was very thorough and knowledgeable and a great help to us both. We learned many things that we hadn’t previously been told by our former trust people.  The entire staff was efficient and pleasant.  We will definitely recommend them to our friends.

May 23, 2018

Andrew’s process from start to finish was outstanding.  His three step approach from information packet, to interview, followed by document signing was thorough and complete.  Lastly, his detained instructions and paperwork to support funding the trust was instrumental in fully completing out “homework” in under two weeks.

May 12, 2018

Mr. Matteson’s efforts have showcased impressive knowledge and professionalism combined with delivering great customer service which delivered phenomenal results.  He was very proficient in the development of my 5 part “Estate Planning”.  He also provided a very professional staff that can support your needs. I worked with Andrew directly to complete my “trust” and at the end when everything was completed, he provided a memory stick with all my trust documents for myself, as well as my trustee and beneficiaries.  I would highly recommend this Law firm and I would whole heartedly recommend Andrew Matteson for legal representation.

May 11, 2018

Changes in my life dictated that I needed to upgrade the Miller Family Trust of 1999.  To rectify this situation in my life, my son, Doug III, recommended you via a mutual friend.  I was favorably amazed with the rapid approach you presented with your “blueprint” depicting “Team Order” and “Team Status” as “Active” to simplify the whole process.  We are extremely please with not only the document but also the “portable chip” given to all parties enabling them to produce immediate results during an emergency.

May 10, 2018

Our pleasure, having just worked with Andy Matteson on our trust papers.  As an attorney, he is very organized, detail-winded and goal-oriented.  Listening to his clients attentively, he leads them, step by step, through the process to arrive at the final product which is exactly what they wish, presented in a lucid and coherent plan.  Andy wasted no time in getting the job done right for us, therefore our recommendation.

May 2, 2018

February 20, 2018

It was a great experience working with Andrew Matteson (Andy). The wife and I had a will drawn up 10 years ago.  A close friend recently had his done, and we discussed how thorough Andy was with his.  Very complete.  I was surprised of what was left out of mine.  I went to Andy with mine.  We added things that would help our children understand clearly a benefit from.  This man dots his “I’s” and crosses his “T’s” and I am fully content with the work he has done for us.  You will to.

February 2, 2018

I really enjoyed working with Andrew Matteson. His team was thorough, professional and walked my wife and I through all the steps of our Trust, ensuring our understanding of the process. I would recommend Andrew and his team without hesitation.

Andrew and his team have helped us through setting up and completion of 2 trusts in the last 17 years.

September 13, 2017

Having retired and decided to get my affairs in order, I was recommended to contact Andrew Matteson by a colleague and friend who had an excellent experience with Mr. Matteson herself. I was not disappointed!  Mr. Matteson was extremely personable and knowledgeable and was able to make the entire process of deciding on a trust vs a will and all aspects of a trust quite straightforward and clear.  The trust “map” and subsequent binder made clear to me what my role in the development of the trust entailed and will guide my successor trustee through her/his role when the time comes. Getting an appointment and follow up meetings were easy, prompt and efficient, as were Mr. Matteson’s office administrations a wholly satisfactory experience.  I would happily recommend Andrew Matteson in the future.

September 11, 2017

We are very pleased with the work that Andy and his very qualified staff did regarding our Family Trust.  From our first meeting to the final meeting Andy walked us through the process and was excellent about explaining every detail.  We are very happy that our friends, Mike and Joan referred us to him.  They had used him to handle their work along with Joan’s elderly mother’s trust and were very pleased with how Andy handled the process as well.  We want to thank Andy and his staff for an excellent job, you have met all of our expectations regarding an issue that requires attention to details.  We would not hesitate to refer our friends or family members to his office.

August 14, 2017

Over the many years we have worked with Andy Matteson and his staff we have found them to be efficient and respectful.  Any questions we have are answered.  Andy has made the Trust a simpler road to follow.

August 3, 2017

You made this so easy.  You explained it all so well.

July 5, 2017

My financial advisor introduced us to Andrew Matteson in 2011.  In the past, I have used 3 different attorneys to update my will and none of them as thorough as Andrew.  He was very patient and made sure that we understood everything he was doing for us.

June 27, 2017

Working with Attorney Matteson and staff was all that we expected and more.  They were able to present clear and concise answers to our change of Trust questions. All documents were prepared on time.  An out of town participant received specific instructions and was most impressed with the thoroughness of the preparations.

Andrew R. Matteson was highly recommended to us by my dad and my brother who both had their estate planning completed in the past.   We worked with Andy recently to plan our estate as well and were happily satisfied with the process and our experience.

April 27, 2017

Andrew and his team provided very comprehensive estate planning services.  They are very efficient and worked very hard to ensure they understood our goals and objectives.  We feel very confident in the end result.  We have recommended his services to other family members who now also use Andrew & team for estate planning. He also helped us coordinate with our financial advisors.  This made the process a seamless and simple experience.

April 26, 2017

Highly organized, thorough and explained everything in a very understandable way. As a retired Attorney, I appreciated all of this.

April 24, 2017

Andy and his staff were very helpful and thorough.  My husband and I appreciated Andy's complete and detailed approach.  We met with other estate planners but had no apprehension coming back and choosing Andy and his staff.  Professional, courteous, punctual and friendly.

April 24, 2017

We have used Andy as our estate Attorney for a long time and we have been extremely pleased with his service.  He always takes time to explain things so we understand everything that he is doing.

March 27, 2017

This is the third time we have had Andrew update our trust. Each time he has been very thorough and attentive to details large and small. He is patient, a very good listener and has the ability to explain details in an understandable manner.

March 27, 2017

The people at the firm were very helpful to me in completing my estate planning. Everything was done on time. The pre-talk with Attorney before our meeting, helped me think how I wanted to set up my estate.

March 17, 2017

My financial advisor recommended Andrew to update my trust. I couldn’t have been happier. He was experienced, knowledgeable, thorough and a very effective teacher. He explained everything in a way that I understood all the details of the goals and decisions I was making. I valued his advice and he helped me put together my trust quickly and easily. I highly recommend.

March 6, 2017

I highly recommend Andrew Matteson for anyone seeking to have a willing trust prepared. He has many years’ experience in this field and is very well organized. I was amazed at how he had tabbed the binder indicating where signatures were needed, which greatly helped to speed up the process. He made certain his instructions were thoroughly understood before proceeding on to the next item. I believe his fee is very reasonable. He is very personable, and I was very pleased to have chosen him as my attorney.

March 2, 2017

At the very end of our meeting, I said to Andy “well, this is it. It’s all taken care of then”. He said “no, we have to check on your mobile home “(or something like that). It was 1/3/17. We had our final meeting to sign paperwork for the Mobile Home on 2/22/17. If we hadn’t asked, we would have thought we were totally finished. However, we thought our Attorney and his staff were very professional!

February 15, 2017

I have been a client of Andrew Matteson’s for the last 14 years. Due to life events I have used his services to start a trust, change a trust, or as a trustee, help in settling a trust. I have found him extremely knowledgeable, helpful and available for any questions. He goes over all the details, to make sure you understand the decisions you are making. His staff is friendly, and readily returns phone calls, I would highly recommend Mr. Matteson for all your Estate Planning Needs.

February 13, 2017

I first contacted Andrew in 2006. He was recommended to me by my financial advisor. I wanted to review my will and discuss other necessary legal documents. In clear English, avoiding legal jargon, Andrew reviewed my present will and then explained the necessity of an updated will and a family trust. Within a week the will and trust were ready for review. Again, very clearly, we reviewed the documents so that I thoroughly understood them. This past month (Jan of 2017) we repeated the process and I was very happy with the process and results. We also spent some time on my POLST reviewing various options relating to my healthcare when I would no longer be able to participate in decision making. Somewhat more complicated that I first thought. If I need any more changes in the future, I will return to see Andrew. I guess that speaks for itself.

February 9, 2017

Andy and his staff have helped us through a difficult and confusing time. Andy takes his time and explains questions we have in detail and makes sure we understand. I feel confident that Andy, has answered all of our needs and he is much appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work!!

January 30, 2017

Andrew Matteson and his staff are always courteous and professional. My questions are always answered immediately or in a timely period.

January 23, 2017

About sixteen years ago, my husband and I were ready to set up a living trust on our assets. After research we chose Andrew Matteson, as our attorney. Due to life changes, I have had to revise this trust four times. Mr. Matteson has always listened to me and my concerns and worked with me to set up a new trust in a timely fashion.

December 27, 2016

I found Andrew Matteson to be very helpful in every way.

November 29, 2016

I undertook the task of being the record keeper of my Mother’s Estate. I feel the office should have explained the importance of the sheet that listed the beginning balances to be used for my mother’s assets. Because of that the beginning balance for her checkbook I used was different. Otherwise things went well.

November 28, 2016

Mr. Matteson did an outstanding job in helping me update my estate plan.

November 22, 2016

We have been clients of Andrew Matteson since 1992. His office is an inviting and comfortable environment. His staff is efficient, friendly and accommodating. We are very happy to give him an “excellent” report, and we do offer him as a referral to our friends looking for an honest, thorough and friendly estate attorney. He is very professional in conduct, commitment and meeting time agreements. He is extremely well organized, and explains things carefully to assure we understand exactly how our trust is written so our desires are carried out correctly. Andrew suggested legal ways for charitable groups to receive maximum benefits from estate gifts. He is also understanding and sympathetic to family situations. He is good at listening and when asked, offering possible solutions to avoid family controversies. Andrew also works well with our financial advisors. We feel blessed to have him attending our estate plans.

November 17, 2016

Dear Andrew, My son (Arthur) and I wish to thank you for a smooth and seamless transition through much paperwork that would have exasperated and mobilized us. Your swift and professional manner in dealing with our situation was greatly appreciated. We would not hesitate to recommend you to family or friends. Sincerely, Marie and Arthur Beauchamp.

November 16, 2016

A recent meeting, upon our request, regarding a change of beneficiaries resulted in our complete satisfaction. Not only were our requests implemented but helpful insight was provided by Andrew which was well appreciated. Yes Andrew, “the wall around the castle” has been straightened.

November 15, 2016

Andrew was on time. He had done is homework and was ready for each of our meetings. He explained each page or document with intensity. I asked a lot of questions & Andrew was patient with me.

October 31, 2016

In January 2003, my wife and I asked Andy for his help in setting up our Trust. Andy patiently helped me making changes when my wife passed away. Now, 13 years later and my 6th visit asking Andy to again help me with my wishes to update my trust. He has done so, more than just my Estate Attorney I am pleased to call Andy a trusted friend. His staff are also wonderful people to work with. I know when my time comes I can trust Andy to help my executor like he has helped me.

October 13, 2016

I am most impressed with the professional procedures in which Mr. Matteson and staff conducted.

He and his staff were thorough, well-organized, knowledgeable, and kind, and made what could have been very onerous and confusing procedures into manageable tasks. Even though his office is in Sacramento, and my mother and I lived in the East Bay, we were able to communicate easily and he came to see us when necessary. I know that my mother was very confident in Andrew’s abilities and appreciated his expertise in trust law, and so did I; additionally, we felt the cost of his services were quite reasonable.

This is our second update of our original 1997 trust with Andrew. Andrew also handled my dad’s 2 revisions of his trust and the closing of his estate. Obviously, we have confidence in Andrew or we wouldn’t keep coming back. It is very easy for me to communicate with Andrew. He understands and supports my forward planning and attention to every detail. Others seem to get impatient. During our most recent planning meeting, our son had to become personally involved. He is extremely sensitive and all of these planning, forms, and the decisions he would have to carry out was too hard for him. Andrew handled his concern in a very clean and understanding manner. The only negative experience I encountered was a communication problem with Andrew’s staff. I had a meeting scheduled with Andrew but unfortunately he got tied up in an urgent situation. The staff failed to communicate the reason for the delay and keep me posted on the time frame. It would have been better to inform me of the delay and offer to reschedule my appointment.

One recommendation we most appreciated was that of Private Professional Fiduciary Lisa Berg to aid either of us, or our son, if help becomes necessary.

March 17, 2012

We highly recommend Mr. Matteson to anyone in need of planning a living trust and accompanying documents.

September 19, 2011

Andrew Matteson prepared our Revocable Living Trust in 2002. There have been changes in the law in California since then. Also there has been a change in the relationship between parties that needed to be addressed. Andrew prepared a revision with options that accommodated the changes that were necessary. He also recommended that we align our IRAs with the beneficiaries that we identified in our Living Trust. This was accomplished through a Trusteed IRA with a reputable Trust Company. This process took several months. We were advised of the progress of these changes along the way either by Andrew or his staff until its completion. A final review made sure that we understood and approved of these changes. We would highly recommend Andrew Matteson for anyone to plan their Estate whether it is simple one or in our case a complicated plan.

They helped me with some difficult dealings with stock companies.

June 25, 2009

This is truly a team you want working for you when you’ve had a loss of a family member with a living trust! It is hard enough dealing with a loss, and the last thing you feel like tackling is legal paperwork. However, Mr. Matteson and his staff were so kind that it made all the paperwork flow so that one was not overwhelmed. Mr. Matteson traveled to our town which is over 3 hours one way not once but twice to guide us through the process! Thank you Mr. Matteson. A big ‘THANK YOU’ to Jessica for making sure I sent the right papers and answered all my questions with a smile. What I respect Jessica the most for: she gave me the correct answers the first time and if she didn’t know the answer, she didn’t guess but reassured me to find out and get back to me – which she did 100% of the time. Great job Jessica!

They brought up so many items that we could not have even dreamed of as being important in planning for the future. Recently, we went in to update various documents as result of some changes that we initiated, but more importantly, changes that were necessitated by various law changes. We would not hesitate to recommend Andrew Matteson to family and friends. And in fact we have done just that over the years. Overall, we appreciate Andrew for all the hard work that he has put in for us. His explanations of some complicated issues were said in away that we could easily understand and accept. His is a great firm to work with.

March 17, 2009

Andrew Matteson and staff helped me deal with my deceased mother’s estate with absolute professionalism, courtesy and knowledge.

Andrew Matteson and his staff are very knowledgeable and professional when helping us create a living trust. Andrew helped us understand the process and purpose of a living trust, and answered all of our questions very thoughtfully. When I asked him a question that I thought had a simple answer, he explained in detail an answer that turned out to be not so simple. I’m glad Andrew and his staff were able to guide us through this process while providing us a lot of detail and knowledge.

August 19, 2008

While in preparation for my retirement, my wife and I began looking for an attorney to assist us through an appropriate process to preserve our wishes relative to our estate. Mr. Matteson and his staff came highly recommended by another city employee who used his expertise prior to her own recent retirement. We had a vague idea of the path we desired and considerably more questions than answers. Within the first one and one half hours of our initial appointment, Andrew made the outline extremely simple to understand, guided us through the entire process, answered every one of our questions and provided alternatives for us to consider in order for us to reach our goals. From the first meeting we were convinced we made the correct choice in Andrew. Two weeks later the trust was completed, but not before he and his staff caught an oversight by our mortgage company relative to names on the property ownership papers. It was immediately corrected. From start to finish, what we thought would be a cumbersome and confusing experience, was pleasant, expedient, comprehensive, attentive to detail and well worth the small cost involved. We highly recommend Andrew’s firm for needs of this type.

August 19, 2008

Andrew Matteson was most professional and took great pains to straighten out a serious problem I had with my living trust. It had been prepared by a now disbarred attorney. This has given me peace of mind, and I would recommend his services to anyone needing a proficient, thorough attorney.

He was most kind and caring, and he and his staff were always available and helped me through a very sorrowful period.

August 14, 2008

Andrew Matteson and his staff were absolutely the best in assisting me with the Certification of Trust after my husband passed away. They were professional, thorough, extremely patient, and walked me through every step of the process which otherwise would have been overwhelming. A time line was provided from the beginning which proved accurate. Mr. Matteson and his assistant Lorraine were extremely knowledgeable and helpful in assisting with other items that would have fallen through the cracks. They were available for any questions or direction that I needed at all times. I sincerely recommend Andrew Matteson without hesitation. Even more than the professional commitment to his clients is the fact that he and his entire staff truly care. The heartfelt compassion, thoughtfulness and patience to his clients they displayed helped me through this difficult time. I am very appreciative of their guidance and assistance.

July 31, 2008

Mr. Matteson was very thorough and provided plenty of time to go over all documents, so we felt comfortable about them. His office staff was very pleasant and efficient.

July 21, 2008

Andrew Matteson explained all the aspects of the trust and other documents in ‘non-lawyer’ easy to understand language. Also, the staff, (specifically Jessica Ray with whom we had numerous contact with) was very helpful. If and when the need arises I will use him again.

July 21, 2008

I am a trustee for a friend and when it came time for me to prepare my own trust, I chose Andrew and his firm. They are very professional in every aspect of the preparation and conclusion of a trust. But, more importantly, Andrew is a caring person who understands grief.

July 14, 2008

Our experience with Andrew was informative and very positive. We had an outdated living trust which was written in 1989. He explained what and how the document needed to be changed, and explicitly went through all the necessary details for the update. Andrew and his team did a very professional job. We will highly recommend Andrew to our peers.

July 14, 2008

When we called, Andrew had a telephone conference with us. He then proceeded to ‘walk’ us through a complete trust during several office visits. He was very clear with every detail, assigning ‘homework’ for us between visits. He also coordinated with our financial advisor to be sure all areas were covered. We believe we have a good comprehensive plan for our future.

July 3, 2008

Mr. Matteson made my estate planning set-up easy. He goes through everything involved, detail by detail, so you are never confused. He was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely refer him to anyone starting this process.

July 3, 2008

The service and quality delivered was excellent. As a suggestion the binder provided could be more professional looking and show the trusts name etc.

July 3, 2008

We found Andrew to be very very thorough in all that he and his staff prepared for us. He was wise in suggesting what was best for our circumstances and in allowing us room to make our own decisions. His documentation as we progressed was thorough and proper amount of time was dedicated to bringing us up to date when follow up was necessary.

July 3, 2008

Seemed well versed in procedure. Answered questions fully. Explained items questioned by me fully.

June 18, 2008

Andrew Matteson is an excellent attorney with Estate Planning. My husband and I are very happy with his services. We would highly recommend him for your estate planning.

June 18, 2008

Andy drew up our revocable trust 10 years ago, and we recently visited him to update a few things. We continue to find Andy knowledgeable, sincere and supportive. Particularly impressive is the way he explains trust options in a clear straight forward manner. Andy has our highest recommendation as an attorney, and we look forward to working with him in the future.

May 15, 2008

My husband and I were very pleased with Andy Matteson and his staff. Andy explained every aspect of the trust to us and answered any questions we posed to him thoroughly. He was very professional and amiable as was his staff. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a trust etc.

My year and a half experience with Andrew Matteson’s office and practice was very pleasant, prompt and professional. I never once felt that the direction I received was unthought out.

April 28, 2008

My good friend (who was like a Dad to me) suddenly passed on 5/11/06. This was the first time I had to settle a living trust. Mr. Matteson and his staff stepped up to the plate and carefully guided me through all the steps necessary to process everything in a timely manner, and nothing fell through the cracks. I found the procedure to be difficult emotionally, but the paperwork end went really well. I don’t know how I could have ever made it without Mr. Matteson and his ‘wonder staff’ on my side. I very highly recommend him to anyone who needs to go through an unfortunate situation. Thank you Andy!

April 25, 2008

Andrew Matteson did an excellent job at explaining and creating our trust. He answered every question thoroughly and patiently, and his support staff was also excellent. We highly recommend him.

For the many times we have met, he has impressed us with his professional and thorough approach, his understanding of estate law and his effective communication skills. He is truly an Estate Attorney we would recommend.

April 9, 2008

As the successor trustee of my uncle and aunts’ Family Trust, it was most gratifying to me that everything was in place when they both passed away, making the settlement of their estate a fairly simple and straight forward procedure. This was due to the excellent manner in which the Family Trust was set up by Mr. Matteson years earlier. Mr. Mattesons’ step by step explanation and guidance as to how I was to carry out each phase of the settlement made the accomplishment of the task much easier to perform. His professional and congenial manner, as well as his acumen of knowledge was very important in bringing this settlement to a successful conclusion. For anyone who is looking for an attorney who has expertise in estate planning and elder law, I would highly recommend the services of Mr. Matteson and his very capable staff.

April 9, 2008

Very professional and precise.

He seemed extremely well organized, systematic and perceptive while his office staff was impressively well organized and effective. We would note our experience as outstanding and most satisfying.

February 15, 2008

The process was concise and straight forward. A two meeting agenda accomplished what we needed. Estate Planning is a shared responsibility between attorney and client. There are duties on both sides that have to be completed.

January 28, 2008

Andy has been my Estate Attorney since 2003 when my wife and I asked for his help. When my wife died in 2006, Andy patiently helped me to make needed changes and now again in 2008. And his staff are patient, considerate and explain everything in understandable non-technical language. I especially appreciate Andy’s suggestions to make my trust clear, concise and complete. I recommend Andy to anyone needing an Estate Planner.

January 28, 2008

It was no coincidence that Andrew Matteson helped me with a Revocable Living Trust after my husband passed away.

Mr. Andrew Matteson is an outstanding Estate Planning & Elder Law Attorney. I would highly recommend Mr. Matteson to anyone who needs an Estate Trust Attorney. I am doing my Estate Trust with Mr. Matteson. Once you meet him you will be happy with him. My Dad had his trust done with Mr. Matteson several years prior to his death in 2005. I met Mr. Matteson at my Dad’s house when he would update my Dad’s trust. I was the Trustee of my Dad’s trust and he would go over what I needed to do. He is very easy to talk with and he will not leave you until you understand everything you need to know. All I needed to do was call his office and let him know my Dad was no longer with us. Mr. Matteson and his wonderful staff took over and made it very easy. Mr. Matteson and his staff did all the paperwork that needed to be done. Mr. Matteson’s staff was wonderful. No matter how many times I called, Jessica Ray (Office Manager) or any one who took my call, they were so polite, cheerful and helpful. I never felt like I was bothering them. Cathy Cotton, (Administrative Assistant) was so wonderful and helpful. She never got tired or impatient with whatever I would ask or need. When Mr. Matteson was going over the trust with me, my brother and friend, he was just so wonderful, and patient. Before we could ask questions, Mr. Matteson was a step ahead of us and answered them. If anyone wants an Estate Planning & Elder Law Attorney, Mr. Matteson and his wonderful staff is the most qualified. They are family oriented, always helpful and glad to be helpful to whatever your needs are. I just want to thank Mr. Matteson, Cathy Cotton, Lisa Baumann, Lorraine Andrew, Jessica Ray, and those who I met and helped me in the office for being there for me and my family.

November 28, 2007

I found his staff to be very friendly, professional & accommodating. When Andy explained how everything needed to be handled he made sure I understood everything – drawing diagrams ad interpreting “legalese” terms if there was any confusion. It took a little longer than expected, but I felt confident with Andy & his staff, knowing they would be able to settle the estate favorably.

August 21, 2007

I have been utilizing Andy’s services for about 10 years. During this time I have been totally pleased with the quality of service that I have received from Andy and his staff.

August 21, 2007

Andrew Matteson and his staff provided legal services to set up a revocable living trust for my wife and I.

Within three weeks the legal document was completed and ready for our review and signing. Mr. Matteson took ample time and great care to explain the document in simple, non-technical terms. We were pleased with the process and final product and would recommend him to anyone needing similar legal services.

When we went to his office, the staff had all the papers in order and explained each section of the trust to me.

March 2, 2007

Andrew Matteson and his staff are absolutely the most efficient organization. My husband and I had our living trust drawn up with revisions by Mr. Matteson in 2004.

He made a point of letting me know that even though I have a co-trustee, I was his client and in charge. He was prompt and courteous. I am confident that he thoroughly covered all the bases in setting up my Revocable Living Trust. I highly recommend him as an excellent estate planner and elder law attorney.

January 18, 2007

When I first completed my trust, Andrew Matteson’s office contacted me regularly to arrange updates. Each time this was done, I paid an additional fee-generally around $250.00. Friends have their trust updated periodically at no additional cost. Since the initial fee was substantial ($1,200 in 1992), I feel updates should be included at a nominal cost especially if they are generated by law changes and consist of “boiler plate” changes.

January 18, 2007

Working with Andy was great. He was very accommodating in scheduling our meetings. His staff were very responsive, friendly and knowledgeable. We joked with him that the only way we’ll really know if our trust is set up well is when it is put to use and then it will be too late for us to write a review. But Andy was very thorough and clear in his explanations and helped us reason through an important process with attention to detail.

January 18, 2007

Our experience working with Andrew Matteson to create our Living Trust was excellent. From our first meeting with him, he demonstrated his knowledge of living trusts. Explaining each aspect of the document carefully and clearly. He answered our questions in a clear fashion.

January 18, 2007

Andy did our trust in 2000 and came to our home, which was 2 11/2 hours by car from his office. We appreciated his professionalism and referred him to several of our family and friends, also in the Bay Area. He did their trusts and all were very satisfied. So when time came to update our trust, of course, we went to Andy. He did an excellent job and did it in a very compressed timeframe to meet our travel schedule. We will continue to refer him to our friends

January 12, 2007

Andrew Matteson and his staff were professional, timely and courteous. I would definitely refer friends & family.

October 24, 2006

Very erood.

October 19, 2006

October 12, 2006

Mr. Matteson and his staff were very flexible in their schedule to meet our needs.

It was a pleasure working with Andrew. I would definitely recommend him to family & friends.

October 12, 2006

Andrew explained all aspects of a living trust simply and completely. We especially liked his diagrams. The entire package is complete with Trustee instructions and other helpful advice. It is a relief to finally complete this important document.

October 11, 2006

Mr. Matteson was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of estate planning. He was professional and prompt in providing trust documents. His staff is friendly and courteous, as well. Both appointments were punctual; efficient use of time. Legalities explained in plain language, easily understood.

October 11, 2006

Mr. Matteson’s service was great. He was very clear with his advice and I understood everything he recommended. I was comfortable discussing my trust changes with him and would return to him for any future needs. I would recommend him highly to other seniors.

August 11, 2006

Several years ago, the Matteson Law Firm prepared a Living Trust for us. Subsequently, we required that it be revised to comply with recent developments in our personal situation. During this process, we found that Mr. Matteson and his staff provided sound advice, were very efficient, well organized explaining each step and verified that we understood the ramifications of the documents as they were signed. Whenever, we called their office, we were treated as if we were their only client. It is comforting to know that the Matteson Law Firm will be available to provide the proper assistance in executing the Living Trust for us, our Trustees and Beneficiaries in the future. We strongly recommend their services to those seeking a professional estate planning law firm in our area.

August 11, 2006

We were very happy with the work done my Andy for us. We were most impressed with his ability to explain our Trust options in simple, easy to understand terms and not “legalese”.

Mr. Matteson and his staff were wonderful to work with. Not only did they deliver a very detailed & organized end-product, but they were attentive, proactive & patient in dealing with two very unorganized people! I can’t believe how quickly our estate plan came together. With Andrew’s help, we accomplished in 2 weeks what had previously taken 2 years. I would highly recommend Andrew & his wonderful staff.

Mr. Matteson was friendly, professional, and obviously knowledgeable re trust law. He answered all questions succinctly and made it clear, up front, what the costs would be to prepare a trust package for my elderly mother in law and a restatement trust package for my wife and I. They were prepared in a timely manner, and explained fully when documents were signed.

Andy & his staff are organized, service oriented and courteous. Andy gives clear explanations and procedural explanations for the “lay” person. We highly recommend him for all estate planning needs!

Mr. Matteson, who did this trust for me was very honest in telling me exactly what this entailed. He was polite, concise and thorough. He did not keep me waiting; nor waste my time or his. I would recommend Mr. Matteson to any friend of mine seeking this kind of legal work.

Mr. Matteson is extremely thorough and competent. I, Dean Hall, had previous experience with a trust with my deceased wife. Mr. Matteson covered every aspect in a much more professional manner than my pervious attorney. We would recommend him to anyone.

June 9, 2006

From the first call to schedule our appointment to our last visit to sign all the papers, working with Mr. Matteson and his entire staff was extremely enjoyable. Mr. Matteson is able to take a complex subject and make it easily understood through diagrams & explanations. Without reservation, we would highly recommend Mr. Matteson for anyone contemplating setting up a trust.
