Stefanie set up my estate plan prior to a major surgery, as I had no previous plan at all. She is so patient, making sure I understood everything, and very professional. I would highly recommend Stefanie.

The best lawyer we could ask for! If you are ever in need of a lawyer that is smart, knowledgeable, funny and responds quickly we highly recommend Stefanie at the Montecito Law Group. We needed some help putting together a trust/will and asked our friend Robert to recommend someone who could help us. He recommended Stefanie. Not only did Stefanie do a great job putting together an "easy to understand" trust for us she also helped us with some real estate questions we had and her fees were very reasonable. We highly recommend Stefanie and have referred her to our friends.

Attorney Stefanie Herrington has far exceeded our expectations in her trust and estate work for us. Her consultation with us and and her preparation and presentation of comprehensive trust and will documents demonstrate a high level of professional expertise, flexibility and deep knowledge of state and federal laws as well as local customs and challenges. We highly recommend Stefanie Herrington and her team.
Moving from the Midwest to California a few years ago, we knew our estate plan would need a major review and updating. Our standards were rigorous since I was a retired attorney and had some experience administering an estate, and we had previously been represented by an excellent attorney in the Midwest. After long and careful consideration, we chose Stefanie Herrington because we were impressed by her intelligence, upbeat attitude, and tireless leadership and service to the community of Carpinteria, particularly Carpinteria Girls, Inc.
Stefanie's personable and flexible approach has enabled us to navigate easily through difficult and uncertain issues. Her clear and warm communication with a light touch of humor and thorough, creative solutions to thorny issues have inspired us with confidence and trust in the road ahead.

I highly recommend Stefanie Harrington. She did my mothers trust and created a special needs trust for my son. She goes above and beyond to help her clients. She's more then an attorney, she's a kind person who is always willing to help others.

Stefanie and her team at Montecito Law Group have provided excellent legal advice and work product for me on a number of complex, trust-related estate planning matters. Specifically, Stefanie obtained court approval to amend an irrevocable trust for substantial tax savings, advised on prospective strategies for dealing with a QPRT trust, and restated my personal revocable trust to address changed circumstances. In all cases, the work has been timely and skillfully completed to a high standard.

I have known Stefanie for years, due to her volunteer work within the Carpinteria community as well as her excellent reputation as an estate planning attorney. My wife and I had been putting off converting our assets into a revocable trust for years. When an impending vacation lit a fire under us and created a serious time crunch, Stefanie did an amazing job completing the documents before our departure, all while clearly and tactfully explaining all aspects of this complicated legal instrument. We could not be more pleased.

When a parent dies or becomes incapacitated, the legal issues are entangled with emotional ones. Stefanie has been extremely skillful--and equally sensitive--in cutting through the legal craziness and advising us in a clear and compassionate way. Thanks to her, we've been able to handle a challenging situation with confidence and even a touch of humor. I would recommend her without reservation.
