What Clients & Fellow Attorneys are saying about Ben Connor

Client Testimonials

Outstanding Professionalism with Clear Communication

We were introduced to Ben Connor and his Law Firm over 20 years ago and quickly became comfortable with Ben’s knowledge, experience, reputation, plus fair and reasonable fees. Our estate planning began with Ben creating a thorough and complete Living Trust and Will with all related legal documents, then updated with amendments (when necessary) and subsequently, restatements for our legal protections as laws and our circumstances evolve. Additionally, Ben has been the ‘go to, legal guy’ for establishing our LLC Business Formation with Operating Guidelines and Agreements; Irrevocable Trusts; and he’s provided guidance, direction and referrals on other legal inquiries we’ve had. His professionalism is outstanding with clear communication, collaboration with our accountant, tax & financial advisor professionals, and final document production and deliverables. The organized document binders are the finest. We highly recommend Ben and his Legal Services without any hesitation.

He was Kind, Patient, and Took all the Time We Needed

Ben created an excellent Living Trust for Laurie and me. He has been a personal friend for many years and finally I asked his advice after leaving the state of Ca. He explained our options from A to Z so that we could actually decide for ourselves what we wanted done. He answered all our questions, was kind, patient, and took all the time we needed to ensure we had a firm grasp regarding Living Trust and all the other documents we needed. Once I have the final copy of our trust I will be sharing it with our financial advisor and our CPA firm which I know will readily agree with all that Ben has put together. The best part is he taught me things about moving from California to Utah that will make a huge difference in my trust as the rules are different for Utah than California. I will get the same advantages in Utah that I had in California. I would recommend Ben highly to anyone!

We Trust Ben Completely

We met Ben through a mutual friend, and when we decided to set up a living trust, he was the only one we felt could provide us with the expertise, sound advice and personal service we preferred. Ben’s extensive knowledge, his ability to listen and ask questions we hadn’t even thought of and his calm, professional manner were invaluable in providing us with a trust that was not only legally sound but tailored to our situation – including pet provisions. We trust Ben completely and never felt we were “on the clock.” He responded promptly to phone calls and emails and kept us informed every step of the way regarding the status of the trust documents. If you are looking for someone with integrity, extensive knowledge, an ability to communicate complex issues clearly and who will put your best interests first, look no further than Ben Connor. Ben has become more than our estate attorney – he’s a true friend, and we appreciate all he did to give us peace of mind – that’s priceless!

Truly Cares about his Clients

Ben is an excellent attorney who also truly cares about his clients. He created a wonderful Living Trust for me and my late husband, as well as an LLC for our business. He was very thorough, explained all of our options, and patiently answered any questions we had. I have recommended him to friends and family and will continue to do so as I have great respect and confidence in him.

Excellent to Work With

Ben Connor, my trusted and knowledgeable Lawyer who is excellent to work with and whose documents are well written and complete. My husband and I first worked with Ben Conner years ago. Before we met Ben, the idea of developing a Trust, Wills and other legal documents was overwhelming. Ben explained how he works through the process of preparing the right documents for his clients and why each document adds the protections his clients need. He put our minds at ease as he answered every question thoroughly and patiently, in language and with examples, that someone without a law degree could understand. Ben listened to our needs and concerns, then discussed our options. Ben used his many years of experience practicing estate law, to include protections we had not known about. He made sure we were educated on and understood estate law as it would impact us, so we could make well informed decisions. As with our Trust, Ben guided us through decisions for our Living Wills and Medical Powers of Attorney documents. Making end-of-life decisions for our documents was uncomfortable, difficult, and daunting and Ben made sure we understood and were comfortable with each decision. This past year, my husband unexpectedly became terminally ill. I learned how important and complete each document Ben had prepared was. My husband’s Medical Power of Attorney and Living Will provided his final wishes, directives and care decisions. The head of the hospital’s Pallative and Hospice Care Department commented that these documents were the best written and most complete she had ever seen. Knowing my husband’s wishes, allowed me to get through the most difficult day of my life. Because we had followed Ben’s recommendation to title our assets into the Trust, I was saved an incredible amount of time, frustration and money after my husband passed. When we worked with Ben many years ago to write our documents, I never could have imagined how important they were going to be. I am now updating my Trust and other documents with Ben. As before, his knowledge of estate law is comprehensive and his approach, leadership, compassion and caring make me confident my updated documents will again be exceptional legal work. I chose Ben to update my own documents due to my trust in his ability, the respect I have for his work and my personal experience of needing the full scope of Ben’s excellent documents. I would highly recommend Ben Connor to everyone. In fact, I recommended Ben to my sister who is currently working with him on her Trust and important documents.

Excellent Attorney

Excellent Attorney who is wonderful to work with and create the perfect trust!! Ben Created a living trust for my partner and I. Prior to Ben, the thought of creating a trust intimidated me. I was over whelmed with just the thought of the process and put it off for years. That all changed when we met Ben!! From day one, Ben’s kind and genuine concern for us put us at ease. Ben was EXTREMELY patient and answered all of our “rookie” questions. He explained the complexity of estate law in ways we could understand. He patiently guided us through the process while discussing our various options and helped us create the perfect trust to meet our final wishes. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ben and HIGHLY recommend his services to All.

Amy

Trusted Advisor

Trust is very important when working with an Estate Planner, and after working with Ben Connor on our estate planning we highly recommend him without reservation. Ben walked us through our options in a clear, concise and easy to understand way. His depth and breadth of knowledge regarding estate planning, the laws and his personal concern for us as people (not just clients) convinced us he could be trusted and was the right person to guide us. What was most important to us is that he listened with compassion; he was easy to talk to; and the trust documents are thorough and comprehensive. In addition to being completely trustworthy, Ben’s breadth of knowledge gave us the confidence that he was looking out for our best interests. If you want someone who can be relied upon to do what’s best for you in a timely, professional, honest and personal manner, I highly recommend Ben Connor of The Connor Law Firm. You won’t be disappointed.

Excellent Living Trust

Ben created an excellent Living Trust for Tug and I. He explained our options from A to Z so that we could actually decide for ourselves what we wanted done. He answered all our questions, was kind, patient, and took all the time we needed to ensure we had a firm grasp regarding Living Trust and all the other documents we needed. Our CPA firm said it was the best Living Trust they had ever seen! I would recommend Ben highly to anyone!

Bonnie

A Godsend

I have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Connor during the updating of my mothers’ trust estate. It was a privilege and unique learning experience. Upon my mothers’ passing, I hired Mr. Connor to assist me, as the executor of the estate, in the dealings of this complicated exercise. I could not have survived and gotten through this experience without Ben. He clearly pays great attention to each and every person involved in whatever action he is undertaking. Trust is a huge factor when one is facing the unknown, Ben will get you through this. His sense of honesty/humor and knowledge is a godsend.

Great Attorney, Good at Explaining Issues

Ben created a Living Trust for my husband and me. He was terrific at explaining the complexities of estate law in ways a non attorney could understand, what the different options were for us and gave us great guidance to help us decide what worked for our wishes. He is very congenial and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him.

Ben crafted an excellent Living Trust for Lorna and I. Answered all our questions and explained our options. Ben gave us examples and choices so we could select the best options for our family. I and Lorna would, and have, recommended Ben to our friends and anyone needing a good knowledgeable Attorney.

He Actually Makes It Understandable!

My wife and I use Ben for our family estate planning. We leave his office and actually understand our plan. When we forget something, or have a question, we either call or meet with him. And Bingo! We understand it again. Both my wife and I feel very comfortable working with Ben. Sharing personal and family details is not always easy. He really stays on top of things. And no, we are not related to Ben.

Ron

Our Trust Lawyer

Ben E. Connor has been our Trust Lawyer for years. A real professional, Ben has updated our Legal Estate Trust several times in order to keep abreast of ongoing changes in Estate Law. Personable and congenial, Ben has a real talent in being able to convey the many facets of the new laws, and making them understandable to his clients. He created a Living Trust and Will for my Mother in Law. Upon her passing, these documents passed the legal tests in all matters, and were highly praised by our Estate Lawyer as making his job much easier. I will happily refer Ben E. Connor and his Firm to future clients. He really knows his Estate Law!
