Former Clients' Testimonials

"Carolyn was a wonderful coach - very efficient and made everything make sense.  She was very informed on all aspects of the filing process to help things go smoothly.  She gives you confidence and supports you through the whole process.  Thanks so much for everything.  D.H."

"My experience with Carolyn was amazing... I could not believe how confusing resealing probate could be. I honestly could not have done this without her. She carefully walked me through the process step by step and made sure everything was done correctly.
Thank you for making this potentially very confusing and expensive process extremely easy and affordable.  

"My parent's died within months of each other and although I knew I was their executor, I had no idea as to what that title entailed.  My dad was adamant that I was smart enough to carry out their wishes without help.  I knew I wasn't.  My parent's financial planner recommended By Your Side Probate Services.
I was reeling with grief and Carolyn very confidently guided me through each step of the probate.  Every question I had was answered quickly and clearly.  I was able to probate the will with no difficulty and she ensured that every step was done correctly.
As a small business owner, I am very aware of customer service and word of mouth advertising.  I can confidently recommend Carolyn to anyone who is an executor.  This is not a job to do on your own.
I cannot measure my gratitude for her assistance.  It made what was one of the worst years of my life so much less stressful.  M.K."

"Carolyn was a true professional during our probate process. As we appreciated her ability to keep us on track through the process while also providing insight that we would have otherwise not known. While it seems that many companies try to take advantage of those who are grieving, it's a breath of fresh air to work with someone who is not trying to take advantage of you or rush you through a process that you feel unready for.  P.G."

"Carolyn, on behalf of my family and I, we would like to thank you for helping us thru a very stressful time.  You are wonderfully knowledgeable and efficient.  Your fee is extremely reasonable and our experience was very positive all the way around.  Everything went smoothly and we are very happy.  Thanks again.  L.B."

"Carolyn was amazing to work with when my mother-in-law passed away.  I highly recommend her services.  R.E."
