Testimonials

Susan Geffen saved my life! An elderly relative was the victim of lottery fraud and was acting as the neighborhood ATM, in total over $200,000. Her legal expertise, compassion, and expertise in geriatrics guided the family through a successful process of care management and understanding. At all times the victim and the family trusted Susan and received compassionate support. Her referrals to other professionals were stellar and her reputation among her peers is impeccable. I recommend her without qualification.

After moving my 88 year old mom from Chicago to California, I was looking for a competent attorney to review and make some minor changes to her living trust. Susan B. Geffen has a wonderful “desk side” manner with her elderly clients and even helped my mom recover $3,000 that her prior attorney in Chicago refused to release from escrow of the sale of her home 2 years ago. I would highly recommend Susan B Geffen’s services to anyone dealing with elderly parents.

My parents and I retained Susan Geffen’s legal services to navigate through the Medi-Cal process and to preserve my parent’s assets. The process was long and hard, but Susan hung in there with us, even when my parents seemed reluctant and indecisive. Susan showed her professionalism and concern for the elderly by continuing to provide legal services and guidance without payment during a period between the two phases of our journey. I would recommend Susan to anyone in need of legal services relating to the elderly and elder care.

When my wife of 53 years suddenly became terminally ill, I asked Susan B. Geffen to provide assistance with new wills and trust documents on short notice. She worked diligently and completed the requisite documents in record time. She also provided in-valuable advice concerning bequests and gathering information for estate tax filings.

-Steve K., Rancho Palos Verdes

I highly recommend her for estate planning and elder law questions.

Before we called Susan, everything was CHAOS. I knew there were some ways to protect my parents assets while getting them the help that they would eventually need, but it was impossible to navigate on my own and I didn’t feel Legal Zoom was the best option, My father saw Susan’s ads in the paper and we attended one of her seminars and walked away with much more direction…Then finally decided to call Susan, hoping she could help us. I felt we needed a lawyer we would trust, who specializes in what we need and Susan seemed to be completely on top of her game. I got a good vibe from her and felt she was genuinely compassionate about elder care and knew what we needed. I also felt like Susan had a very ethical way of figuring our needs out. She read us correctly and gave us the peace of mind we were desperately needing, and we did it at the correct time. She put together a trust for my parents and asset protection for all of us. She worked quickly and we are now protected and I will be able to care for both of my parents if need be without any of the complications I saw coming had we not called a lawyer. Susan was perfect and we are extremely pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend Susan to any Gen X-er from The South Bay who cares about their aging parents and protecting the assets they have worked so hard to have. Trust me, you are better off in the end…And Susan is the lawyer for you!
