I first met Ms. Augusto when I was referred to her partner, Jim Sloto, to prepare a guardianship for my son, who is disabled. My husband and I were extremely impressed with her demeanor, knowledge and ability to explain the guardianship process in non legalese terms.. We also used Ms. Augusto and Mr. Sloto to update our special needs t trust and other estate documents and have found their legal fees to be reasonable considering the high quality of their services. We have referred many of our friends to their office with total confidence and in every instance have received positive feedback.
Jackie helped me through a complex situation with my father's estate. I can't say enough good things about her, she was knowledgable, understanding and most importantly always responsive with any issues that arose. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a lawyer in her field of expertise.
A counselor in the truest sense of the word. Jackie is not only knowledgeable, but also very responsive. When dealing with probate matters, Jackie frequently deals with the most sensitive of subject matters and often at very difficult times in the clients' lives. Her sensitivity makes her eminently relatable. When my father passed away, she provided prompt and invaluable advice. I highly recommend her.
Ms. Augusto worked on my wife and my will and estate planning and it was a great experience. She is very thorough and technical and has a clear command of the law in this area, but was also great from a service standpoint, taking time with my wife and I and walking us through everything in non legal jargon. It was an excellent experience and definitely a huge value to me and my family. I will refer Ms. Augusto to anyone looking for an attorney in her area of Law.
Jackie is a fine lawyer. She understands the law well and she is able to apply her knowledge to her clients' needs. She has a wonderful personality and she is respected in her field by other lawyers and judges. She also has the ability to collaborate with other attorneys, including opposing counsel, which usually means a better result for the client. 5 Stars across the board!
