Client Testimonials

What our clients say

As a same-sex couple we knew how important is was for us to have a well-drafted estate plan in place. Because we are not afforded the same legal rights, privileges, protections and benefit as married couples we wanted to find an attorney whose specialty included wills trusts and estate planning for domestic partnerships. We were delighted when we found Bridget. She was an absolute joy to work with, expertly guiding and advising us every step of the way. And not only did Bridget fit the bill, her bill fit our budget! We highly recommend Bridget to any couples who are seeking to protect their partners and their financial future.

JEANNE COLE & MARYPAT PLOTTNER

Bridget helped revise and update our living trust. She carefully listened to our needs and implemented our wishes. She explained in simple to understand language the decisions we needed to make and the choices available

JEFF WEISS PETALUMA, CA

It was our second marriage and I had two children from my first marriage. We weren’t sure what needed to be done, but I wanted to make sure everything was fair. Bridget helped us make informed decisions by explaining in plain English. We ended up with peace of mind – knowing everyone is taken care of.

MATTHEW HANNIGAN SAN JOSE, CA

Our family grew quickly in the last five years, we knew we needed something in place to provide for them. We didn’t always agree who should take care of the kids if we couldn’t. Bridget gently helped us resolve the conflict between my wife and I – we were able to decide on someone we both wanted. She helped us get past the stumbling block and we were able to finish our Trust and not worry about what would happen to our girls.

ROB MAPE LOS ANGELES, CA

I was successor trustee of my uncle’s estate. It was complicated, with over 8 different family beneficiaries. Bridget helped me get the estate organized and distributed within four months! She was really easy to work with and handled some difficult people on my behalf.

DENISE LYNCH SEBASTOPOL, CA

We just wanted to thank you for all of your help and kindness with Granny and her estate. You have always been there at the drop of a hat guiding us in the right direction. We hope that you know you are more than a lawyer to us, we consider you a friend as well.

DAREN BABCOCK PETALUMA, CA

Bridget was able to point out some aspects of the law that were of particular benefit to us in establishing a special needs trust. I highly recommend Bridget Mackay as an attorney that can help you establish or revise your family trust, because she is a knowledgeable and caring attorney – a hard combination to find!
