I could not be happier with my experience working with Gabriel Katzner. He is professional, accessible and clearly explained all my options. He patiently answered my questions and was thorough in his explanations. My experience with Gabriel was so positive I recommended him to several friends.

Gabriel Katzner has taken me through a very difficult process. A large part of my estate is going to a university, in memory of a sibling. Gabriel Katzner was not only caring and very knowledgeable, but worked hand in hand with the Planned Giving Department, making the task less stressful. Today we signed the final documents, thanks Gabriel I couldn't have done this without you guidance and patience. Thank you.

Great working experience with Gabriel and his team on my estate planning issues, including a health proxy, power of attorney and many other legal documents. He walked me through everything and then mailed me a binder with tabs for each section...very professional, reasonable fee, and nice person too! Highly recommend! Thanks Gabriel!

Gabriel Katzner made it seamless for me to get a will in place. As someone with a busy schedule it was important for me to have someone who could guide me through the process and lay things out in a clear and concise manner. In addition to preparing a will Gabriel did a great job with laying out the different options of doing a will vs. a trust and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Timely, efficient and knowledgeable are a few of the words I would use to describe my experience with Gabriel.

From start to finish, Gabriel Katzner made the uncomfortable task of writing a will comfortable. Years ago I actually purchased an inexpensive will (from a website) and figured I was covered, but my wife wanted a will from a real estate planner and I am glad she stuck to her guns. From start to finish Gabriel Katzner communicated with us on a regular basis. The information he required was thorough, and the final will was a legal work of art. I highly recommend Gabriel Katzner for estate planning.

With our baby having turned one year old, we wanted to prepare an estate plan, and Gabriel did an absolutely outstanding job helping us with that. He never tried to push his services but walked us through our options and helped us form a solid understanding of what we needed. The subject matter is very involved and requires thinking through a number of considerations, completing quite a bit of paperwork, and coordinating this work with financial and other service providers. Throughout the process, Gabriel held our hand, was always quickly available to answer any questions, and truly went the extra mile to help us with the paperwork. I find him to be someone I can trust and work with for the long term. I couldn't recommend Gabriel's service more highly.

Working with Gabe was super easy and professional. He gave us confidence from our first meeting. He helped us determine the right services for us and was very patient as we took forever to get through them. He was very responsive, working what felt like around the clock, to turn things back around and answer all our questions. I would absolutely work with him again and recommend him to others.

Gabriel did a superb job for my wife and me in the preparation of our wills and other documents of that type. Not only he did an excellent job but the way he did it was also excellent: he listened to our concerns and questions, took time to explains the different concepts and options, provided quick feedback when requested, was very available and courteous, very professional -- without being pompous or condescending. In a nutshell (i) we were very happy with his work, and, (ii) he made us feel at ease working with him. I would recommend him without any hesitation. jean barut

Gabriel did an amazing job explaining all of the options available to me and my family, and helped me find the best path forward. He was affordable and carefully walked my wife and I through the entire process of creating a full trust, to best protect my children. This process was easy, and I feel great about what we were able to put together.

I'm incredibly happy I made the decision to work with Gabriel Katzner on my estate planning. If you are thinking about tackling the intimidating task of estate planning for your family, I HIGHLY recommend his service. You won’t be disappointed. He is incredibly thorough and detailed and very prompt via email and phone, he explained all of my legal options in detail. He presents the options where appropriate, and will let you come a decision on your own. If you choose to work with Gabriel you will not be disappointed.

With a baby on the way, my husband and I decided it was vitally important for our family to be secure if anything were to happen to either one of us. I reached out to Gabriel initially wanting a phone consultation before hiring him. I was very impressed with the amount of time he was able to spend on the phone with me, completely patient with all of my questions, and there was no pressure to hire him. We did end up hiring him and it has been an extremely pleasant and helpful experience preparing our estate plan. He was always knowledgable, professional, responsive, thorough, and patient. We've worked with other lawyers before and Gabriel has by far been the best.

I reached that time in my life when I realized that finally had to set up a will. I worked hard for my money and did not want to leave it to NY State to figure it out the wrong way! I came across Gabriel Katzner. I read his reviews and they convinced me that he would be a good fit. Gabriel responded after I sent an introduction email. We chatted on the phone a bit and I received a questionnaire to complete. We arranged to meet in person to review the options of a Will versus Trust. He addressed my questions and concerns, and explained the pros and cons of the options available. It took me a few months to decide on what I wanted to do. During that time, Gabriel responded to my additional questions, concerns, and scenarios I had thought about via email and over the phone. His answers were excellent, detailed, and helpful in figuring out what I wanted. I finally completed my Will and it was a straightforward process for my situation. I wholeheartedly recommend you consult with Gabriel with your estate planning needs. You don’t want to mess up something as important as what you leave behind.

We have been beyond happy with the work that Gabriel has done on our estate planning project. He is prompt via email and phone, takes the time to explain complex legal issues in terms we can understand and seems to genuinely care about the well being of our family. We really liked the fact that he has a young family himself, so he understands exactly our concerns and what we are trying to accomplish when planning for our children’s future. He is incredibly thorough and detailed – a priceless quality in your attorney. He provides advice where necessary; but also simply presents the options where appropriate, and will let you come a decision on your own. We have been incredibly happy working with Gabriel. If you are thinking about tackling the intimidating task of estate planning for your family, I HIGHLY recommend working with Gabriel Katzner. You won’t be disappointed.

Gabriel had assisted me in preparing personal legal paperwork. From our first conversation over email, he was very thorough and explained all the steps that would be required for the process. This was during the holiday season, so he was very transparent of his upcoming vacation and made sure that it fit within my timeline. Gabriel was very responsive. He responded to emails very quickly, even on the weekends and always delivered what he promised. He was always on time for our meetings and was prepared to make sure the process was as efficient as possible. He also gave me some personal legal suggestions that were outside of my request, but they were truly appreciated. It also showed his expertise on many legal topics. I would definitely work with Gabriel again for any legal matters that are within his expertise.

Gabriel did a fantastic job with my project - a first-time will and trust setup. He was responsive, always on-time, detailed, and great at explaining options to me and ensuring I understood. He stepped me through the process of estate planning quickly and efficiently; I appreciate that he made good use of time. He was also quick with email and phone replies and setting the date/time for the signing. I found Gabriel via the Hyatt Legal Plan, and he exceeded my expectations. I will use him again when I need to update my will.

My wife and I had a fantastic experience working with Gabe Katzner. He was professional and well-prepared for the two meetings we had with him (each time we were in and out in less than 30 minutes). We appreciated how promptly and thoroughly he responded to our questions to help us became more knowledgeable of the legal options available. As a couple still in our 20's (i.e. not yet homeowners or parents), we appreciate the peace of mind Gabe has already given us and look forward to working together with him as our family and legal needs change over time. An added bonus to working with Gabe are his email newsletters. Within a month of signing our own trusts, we have already shared his newsletter with two other couples who live out-of-state both for the good tips and as a reference of what they should look for in an estate lawyer.

I contacted Gabriel for estate planning through my company's Hyatt Legal Plan and was very pleased. He appeared knowledgeable, was personable, addressed my questions and concerns, and was easy to contact. If he wasn't available when I called, he called back quickly. He was also very accommodating in terms of meeting or scheduling a phone call. All in all he was responsive, caring, and made what seemed like a complicated process, comfortable and easy.

My husband and II were truly impressed with Gabriel at our very first meeting. He made us feel at ease even when we felt we had overwhelmed him with the many questions we had for him. He is super organized, efficient, knowledgeable and above all, very patient and thorough. No questions and e-mail messages went unanswered and in very explicit and easy to understand language. Actually, we were a bit surprised that our e-mail messages were returned so quickly, normally within hours, not days, which is very rare nowadays. Gabriel is a smart and experienced attorney. Very professional. Even though our case was not very complex, yet he took time to explain in details all the legal terms that confused us. We definitely and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an estate planning lawyer.

We found Katzner Law Group from the list of Hyatt Legal Plans and did our own research on reviews and referrals from social media networks. ALL THE POSITIVE REVIEWS WERE ACCURATELY DESCRIBED BASED FROM OUR EXPERIENCE WITH GABRIEL KATZNER (A LAWYER WITH EXCELLENT KNOWLEDGE OF ESTATE PLANNING AND ACCOUNTANCY). We recommended five of my co-workers and five of my friends to Katzner Law Group because they have superior and excellent knowledge of estate planning. PLEASE NOTE GABRIEL KATZNER IS A VERY CARING PERSON WHO RESPONDED TO MY EMAILS AND QUERIES COMPLETELY!
