Whenever I got on a plane or did something adventurous the thought of unplanned mishaps bothered more often then I imagined. I finally went online and searched for a nearby attorney. This brought me to a few lawyers and I browsed their websites. I requested a few appointments online and Brian emailed not long after to set up a consultation meeting two days later. I met with Brian and he was very professional. The first question he asked me, besides how I was doing, was "my reason for starting a living trust and what I was looking to accomplish". I told him everything I had in mind, he wrote down every detail and was EXTREMELY engaged. I knew I wasn't paying him for his time but he didn't mind answering all my questions, he even took the time to explain them thoroughly and gave me great suggestions. After answering all the 100+ questions I had, he then told me the cost and did not request a retaining fee. I was shocked that he did not want a retaining fee (like most lawyers I've dealt with) but was most concerned about whether this was the typed of service I was expecting and was looking for. I knew that I was going to hire Brian to execute my documents because how professional, HONEST, sincere, helpful, and patient of a character he showed during our meeting. After meeting Brian I didn't look into any other lawyers. After leaving his office feeling confident, Brian kept me in the loop during the trust draft and ask if there were any last minute changes I would like to make or add anything additional. What a detailed oriented person! I finally got my living trust completed and I feel accomplished! Now I can get on a plane or go to hang gliding class and feel at ease! THANK YOU BRIAN for helping me through this process and making it a stress free experience. I hope whomever reads this will really consider Brian because he is a QUALITY person and lawyer.

“After contacting numerous attorneys, Qualls Law Firm stood out as the best. Brian contacted me personally within the hour, inquiring about my needs, making recommendations and scheduling a free at home consultation that weekend. At our initial meeting, Brian spent a couple of hours assessing my situation, answered all of my questions, provided sound legal advice and prepared my estate planning documentation. Given my personal situation, I was able to continue to contact Brian via text, who continued to provide sound advice. He treats his clients like family and I will recommend Qualls Law Firm to everyone I know.”

“Brian was everything we wanted in an Estate & Trust Attorney. He was very knowledgeable and took his time explaining all that is involved in setting up a trust. He took his time with us and we felt no pressure. We had a previous lawyer but I always felt uncomfortable with him. He never tried to explain the ramifications of anything that was put in the trust. He actually had done us more harm than good. Money was his biggest motivator. Brian is not that type of an attorney. We highly recommend Brian to anyone interested in setting up a Living Trust.”

Brian made what could have been a very unpleasant situation into a good and pleasant experience.
Brian Qualls helped us settle our estate matters in an emergency situation. Within two weeks he had our Living Trust and all pertinent documents prepared and back to us for signatures. Now, this impressed us so much we gave his name to some of our friends, whom called Brian for their Estate questions.
Brian not only impressed us with his expeditiousness, his knowledge of Estate Laws and relatable subjects, he left us at ease with the work performed for us.
As an aside, I worked in law firms for 37 years and am quite familiar with the inner workings of them. Brian Qualls Law Firm, from what I saw of his interview process, document delivery/explanation, signatures and notarization of finalized documents, proved how absolutely organized his office is and the ingenious way he has set things up. As a Legal Assistant, I am very impressed. He does not waste time!

My experience working with Brian Qualls on our two trusts was outstanding. (Note: This conclusion is based on previous experiences, as the primary trustee of five Missouri trusts, during which I worked with several different attorneys).
My own trust was a bit involved so it was important to use an experienced California specialist who could produce a personalized trust that would avoid subtle but expensive problems later. Such expertise can get very expensive by the hour in the SF Bay area but Brian charged a reasonable fixed price so I knew up front exactly how much it would cost. Although he does come to San Mateo CA we interacted mainly by email and phone which saved me time as well.
Brian was always very responsive & pleasant to work with on the many details involved. And, he was also happy to answer my many questions both before we got started working together and, at no extra charge, as needed years later.
Pleasanton, CA (Yelp 2019)
We needed to update our Living Trust, which was first compiled 18 years ago. We wanted to make several changes. Brian made the process easy, understandable, orderly, and surprisingly enjoyable.
He welcomed our questions and answered them clearly. He was professional, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. It's a wonderful relief to know that our "affairs are in order" in this unpredictable world and that we can call or meet with Brian with any additional questions or updates in the future, should our circumstances change.

Brian is terrific and I highly recommend him. My wife and I were able to get all of our living trust and estate planning questions answered in our first consultation meeting, making it an easy decision to do business with the Qualls Law Firm. The process and communication was very clear and straightforward. Brian is kind, explains sophisticated topics with ease, and clearly is passionate about his business. We're based in Pleasanton so having a local attorney was icing on the cake. Brian is the best!

Brian was referred to us for creating a family trust with all the related documents, and we were exceptionally pleased with his service. The process was very educational and clear. Brian explained everything we needed to know and answered all our questions concisely. It was a very good experience, and we strongly recommend him for estate planning.
In fact, we just contacted him again with a question regarding a contract for a solar system, and he helped us right away without even charging us. We feel Brian was the right choice for a long-term relationship as our personal attorney.

Brian Qualls created a trust and will (and related documents) for me. He listened to my concerns, answered all of my questions, and prepared my documents in a timely manner.
I used to work as a paralegal for many years (including working for an estate planning law firm); and I found him to be one of the most professional and knowledgeable attorneys that I have encountered. I highly recommend him!

Brian was extremely supportive with helping me revise my will and related documents. Although I was tempted to try to revise them on my own, I'm grateful I didn't since he provided valuable information I vneeded to consider and would have never thought to research or include otherwise. (These types of mistakes can be costly and time-consuming, so it's well worth engaging a professional to guide you through the process.) He was flexible with scheduling our appointment, very prompt with preparing my paperwork, and made signing the documents a breeze. He is personable, punctual, patiently explains all steps, and clarifies any confusing concepts. I highly recommend Brian's legal services and will definitely contact him again for our future legal needs.
