Trusts and Estates
Jonathan Forster of Weinstock Manion has handled the planning and management of our Estate and Trusts for two generations of my family and we are working on the third. Working with him has consistently been positive and reassuring. His responses are extremely timely and he has always been completely knowledgeable and thorough in his information and the manner in which he presented it. Jonathan's personal warm demeanor and sense of concern always came through whether dealing with him in person or over the phone, making often difficult tasks or times easier to manage. I have recommended Jonathan and this firm to several people looking for assistance in dealing with estate planning and all have been extremely impressed with his skill as a lawyer.

Trusts and Estates
As a recent widow, I was first introduced to Sussan Shore of Weinstock Manion in 1987. I desperately needed an outstanding attorney I could trust to manage and guide me through the administration of my estate; someone who would help me make decisions that were in my best interest; someone who was patient and took the time to listen to me and someone with compassion who would be there for me in the years to come. Sussan was all that and more. As the years passed and with amazing skill and expertise, Sussan worked with me through several estate and trust crises that required litigation. I am indeed fortunate to be her client and feel Sussan is not only my attorney, but my friend.
Marilyn Holiver
Trusts and Estates
A law firm has to provide the foundation for its attorneys to perform at their highest levels. But it is the individual attorney that brings personality, strategic planning, and the latest changes to the laws regarding family matters that allows the firm's excellence to shine. Robert E. Strauss with Weinstock, Manion has to be the best attorney for trusts and estate law in the United States. My family and I have a sound plan that will stand the test of time and provide fruit for generations to come.
