I called Roman Amino with questions regarding all of the above in my title. Mr Amino took the time to explain all my options and email me information. His staff was very courteous and professional. At the time of signing all my documents, Mr Aminov had no problems reading through each line with me and carefully explaining what everything meant and entailed. In a world where everyone is always in such a rush, I can appreciate how Mr Aminov took his time learning about my needs and fulfilling them so that I may have peace of mind. I have the highest opinion of Roman Amino and his ability to do his job in such an excellent manner.
My experience with Roman Aminov and his firm was AMAZING. My Father passed away in October and I needed Letters of Administration. I went to the court myself and all the paperwork they handed me was a little overwhelming. I contacted Roman and met with him SAME DAY, around 6:30pm. With speed and efficiency I spoke with his assistant, Sarah numerous times throughout the week to make sure everything was in. A week later my paper work was ready to be sent. I was warned that it could take between 2 to 3 months. A little over a month later...I have my letters in hand. AMAZING! Best decision I made was to contact Roman Aminov!
Going thru this process seemed daunting at first. Not knowing what to expect or how to go about it. Mr. Aminov and his staff were professional, courteous and hospitable. I would highly recommend Mr. Aminov and his services. He was always quick to respond to my calls and emails and was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. Use him. You won't be sorry.
Have you ever had to sell a home previously own by a now deceased relative while maintaining the relationships between family members who are also beneficiaries? I didn’t realize just how stressful that could be before taking on the responsibility of being the executor of my mother’s estate.This is why I am thankful for and to The Law Offices of Roman Aminov. His patience and professionalism, understanding and kindness and even constructive refocusing were exactly what I needed to get through the probate process and the sale of my mother’s property. He was considerate of my needs and took, what I felt, was great personal care in my well being, both emotional and financial.I had a very pleasant experience and I owe that to Roman and his team. I would recommend The Law Offices of Roman Aminov ten times over.
My experience with Roman Aminov was excellent. He helped me organize my aunt's estate at a very difficult time and brought my family successfully through the probate process. He was VERY responsive to my questions and he always kept me aware of the status and progress of my case.
Roman was hired after my initial attorney failed to produce fairly simple estate related petition. He was, from beginning to end, responsive and always available to answer all questions I had about the process. He was also very patient when I was getting worried that the process was taking longer than I expected. He clearly explained that the process takes couple of months to be completed.In addition, his fees, while not the cheapest, was very reasonable for the services he provided. I was very pleased with his initial work and hired him to do additional work as I write this review.
Mr. Aminov walked me and my spouse through a complete estate plan while explaining all of our options in the process. He genuinely cared about us and kept us informed and involved in the process. I am grateful for his assistance and am extremely impressed with the high level of knowledge he has in the field as well as his ability to convey that knowledge to us in caring manner. Thank you for all your help!
Roman handled preparing a will, revocable trust, power of attorney, health care proxy and disposition of remains for me .(should my health care proxy wishes fail). He is concerned and considerate and takes the time to explain and make suggestions to best handle and provide for his clients. My love and thanks to him.
I was recommended to Roman from a close friend of mine to complete my will. Myself and my wife are very selective when choosing professionals to deal with because we want to choose someone who has passion for what they do, trustworthy and is well versed in their field. . I can tell you that when choosing a lawyer- Roman was the right choice for us.Fabian and AnnMarie
There’s only one word that defines Roman Aminov as a professional and a human being – excellence. He is a brilliant, highly knowledgeable and professional estate attorney–at-law with a golden heart. He specializes in Elder Care issues and we came to see him to elaborate such important to us documents as wills, Powers of Attorney and Health Care POAs. We couldn’t have made a better choice! Mr. Aminov was with us every step of the process, patiently listening and explaining to us every issue of our concern, working with us in an invariably relaxed and stress free environment. There has never been a moment of tension or rush, and at all times we’ve been getting from him completely undivided attention. Mr. Aminov and his equally caring and competent staff would be always available for whatever questions that would arise during this exercise. Our emails and phone calls were promptly answered without delays and Mr. Aminov’ advices proved to be invaluable and to the point. Our experience with Roman (as we ended up addressing him since he quickly became much more than an attorney - our trusted friend) was highly satisfactory and we whole-heartedly recommend his services to anyone seeking up-to-date and highly professional help in this field. We keep him in high esteem and respect and it’s imperative to acknowledge that he shows genuine concern/care about his clients making it, rather than pure financial considerations, his main priority. We’re profoundly grateful to you, Roman, for your truly professional and at the same time friendly and caring attitude and for giving us much needed peace of mind at this stage of our life. From the bottom of our hearts we wish you and your loved ones only the best for now and always.
