Tara Cheever was extremely knowledgeable, very professional and very helpful! All this and very safety conscious during the early pandemic, as well. She certainly knows what she is doing, and she is a genuinely NICE person as well.  Highly recommended by both me and my wife.  Thanks Tara!

Tara’s professionalism and enthusiasm are contagious! She is a great referral partner because I know that she follows-up immediately, is very professional, and of course, discreet. I have never had a time when I wouldn’t enthusiastically send Tara my best clients to help them with any of their legal needs.

I already had a trust in place but it needed updating. Tara was extremely patient and thorough at addressing my questions and concerns. I have a much better understanding of my estate plan now especially because the shortcomings were corrected. I have recommended Tara to two families I know who are thinking about establishing an estate plan and trust.

Our experience with Tara and the development of our family trust was made easy by her well planned process.

Tara is a solid hard working attorney who strives for excellence.

- Maria Hill Escondido, CA

I recently had Tara Cheever put together an estate plan for me that includes a will, trust and powers of attorney for both financial matters and health care. I was very impressed by Tara, her knowledge and her process for accomplishing our goals. She’s professional, kind and empathetic. One thing she did after the completion of my plan was offer me the opportunity to do a legacy tape for my family. Tara asked questions and I answered them. I was a little leery before I did it, but am so glad I did. It’s just something extra to leave to your family as a way of expressing your love for them.
