"As an owner of multiple businesses, properties and investments, I was very concerned about putting together a simple, yet comprehensive estate plan with my complicated portfolio. The Goosmann Trust Law Counsel team took the time to step-by-step discover, understand, research and explain all my options and together we came up with an excellent creative plan that meets all my wishes. My estate plan was put in place quickly and met my expectations and timeframe. I really appreciated the personal attention, open communication, and friendly help throughout each step of the process. With my intricate plan in place, I now emphasize the importance of setting up a detailed estate plan to everyone and would highly recommend the Goosmann Trust Law Counsel services."

"I first became acquainted with Goosmann Law when my mother passed away and I was named executor of her estate, I had seen Jeana on TV and felt that was the type of firm I wanted to represent the estate. My mother's affairs were not in the best order so there were several challenges to get it probated and settled in a timely and economical way but the Goosmann firm did that in a very professional way despite all the problems we encountered. After that I knew I did not want my children to go through the same thing I had, so I met with the Goosmann Trust Law Counsel. They helped me to answer all the questions I had as to what I wanted to do and how I wanted it handled. They put together a plan based on their questions and my answers that addressed all of my concerns. I was very impressed with their concern to do what I wanted and the best way to accomplish it. I can now feel confident that when the time comes my estate will be passed on in the way that I want it to be with a minimum amount of problems for my children. I would recommend the Goosmann Law team for any legal issues that you have, they are professional, friendly, reasonable and fair."

"I worked closely with Goosmann law to prepare a living will, as I travel a fair amount and wanted to make sure all loose ends were tied up. They did a great job of guiding me through the process, and asking me the right questions that helped me to think bigger picture and more long term. I see Goosmann Trust Law Counsel as a trusted advisor, and am looking forward to a longstanding relationship with the team."

After surviving the Vegas shooting, it became even more important for us to put our affairs in order. Not only for our children, but for the many businesses we own. Goosmann walked us through the process and made it super easy and understandable. Highly recommend Sam Ferguson and his team at Goosmann.


For several years, my husband and I discussed the need for having a will. This summer, we were directed to Goosmann Law Firm to seek advice in this regard. They made this experience easy in that they were both professional and knowledgeable in regards to explaining the process of estate law. Their replies were prompt, and we both highly recommend contacting Goosmann Law for estate planning. Thank you also to the staff - all were friendly and kind.

We want to commend the fine work of Andrew Simpson and his team in handling my mother's estate. Andrew educated us in the processes and procedures to close the estate, helped handle questions from the other benefactors, and was consistently prepared to help us as we closed the estate. Andrew is personable, an effective communicator and an excellent lawyer we highly recommend. While it was a difficult path, he assisted us in a patient, positive and constructive way. "Five stars" for Andrew Simpson and Goosmann Law!
