“Michael was my parent’s trusted attorney for over 30 years. After the passing of both my parents, I hired him to help me administer their trust. I greatly appreciated his knowledge, patience and experience. He helped me to navigate several difficult situations and was straight forward about referring other professionals to me when needed. During this very busy and stressful time in my life, he helped me to clarify the path forward and was there to answer my questions both big and small. Thanks for all your help.”

“Michael Hanks has been the center of my family’s estate and taxation planning for more than 25 years. He communicates and coordinates all activities with my accounting firm and helps me make decisions that in the long term have proven to be excellent. I used Mike with my parents estate at their death and am now moving to the third generation as Mike has helped my three daughters with their financial planning and wills.

​I feel confident about the future of my grandchildren based on the advice Mike has provided to the three generations prior. Michael Hanks is brilliant and can get through the most complex problems with ease. I would not give anyone a higher rating that I give Michael Hanks.”

“When my aunt passed away, I had a very difficult time. When I was notified of her passing, I had no idea what to do. I was all alone in trying to handle everything. A close family friend recommended Michael Hanks. What a life saver! Living in Southern California made it difficult for me to handle things, as my aunt had lived in Northern California. Michael Hanks handled everything for me. Not only did Michael Hanks handle the entire probate process, he guided me every step of the way in dealing with everything to do with her death and her estate. I was in a very difficult situation, Michael Hanks and his staff made it a much easier process. Everyone was so helpful and kind. I never had to worry about a thing. I was able to take care of my family situation without the hardship of dealing with the legal matters involving my aunts passing and probate. I am truly grateful for the help of Michael Hanks and his staff.”

He has thoughtfully helped me plan my estate, and I continue to refer associates and family to his offices and can highly recommend his services.”
