About 5 years ago we asked Kyle to update our trust. He did so and we were very happy with the results. Recently we realized that our family had grown and changed so much so that we needed to update our trust once again. We also realized that we had some very distinct and special circumstances to be handled significantly differently than the first time. Kyle spent time researching these circumstances and the end result is a trust suited specifically to our needs. He had excellent suggestions on how to handle everything we "threw his way." We are very grateful for his thoughtful approach to our concerns, the time and effort he so obviously invested in our trust, his careful attention to details, his recommendations, and his simplifying what we saw as an overwhelming process. We thank Kyle for all this and also thanks to his very knowledgeable and caring staff, Marilyn and Rachel, with whom we have enjoyed working.

When my estate attorney retired I decided to investigate Krasa Law as a replacement Estate Planning representative.
I found Kyle Krasa to be a knowledgeable and accommodating Lawyer. He was willing to take the time required to listen to my requirements and then to make meaningful suggestions to improve my existing estate plan. His explanations of some difficult legal concepts were concise and understandable.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kyle Krasa to others looking for estate planning.
-Richard A Regan
I consulted with Kyle about estate planning because I was curious how it could apply to me and my particular situation. He was so relaxed, knowledgeable, and personable that the information he gave me made moving forward a logical step. I now have a plan in place that makes the process of settling my affairs very specific and straightforward. It represents my exact wishes at this point in time about money, possessions, and health directives. That consultation was liberating. It made a huge difference in finally taking responsible and vital legal steps to get my affairs in order.
I am very happy with Kyle and his law firm. Kyle is very kind, understanding, and patient. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal services.
A trust had been on my mind for some time. Because I did not know who to help me with this, I procrastinated indefinitely. An associate who recently completed this process told me about, and highly recommended Kyle Krasa. I can definitely state that immediately upon meeting him, I knew I had made the right decision. Mr. Krasa is friendly, competent, and explains every detail in a manner that I understand. Marilyn (office personnel) and he are a great team. The process of a trust was completed expeditiously and financially reasonable. I am greatly relieved and totally satisfied that this matter has been taken care of. I, along with others, give high recommendation for KRASA LAW.
Kyle Krasa has performed in a very professional manner in the process of updating The Stevenson Family Trust. He has a wealth of knowledge regarding trusts and wills and utilized it in putting together a document to meet our needs as his clients. He has a presentation style that makes clear the intricate details of the trust utilizing visual, written and oral examples. Due to the difficulty of my wife traveling to his office, he accommodated our personal needs by arranging to meet with us in our home to review the trust documents. I have no reservations in recommending the services of Kyle Krasa to anyone needing assistance in setting up a trust.
My experience with Mr. Kyle Krasa has been very positive. Mr. Krasa is extremely knowledgable and thorough. He went over my existing living trust page by page and explained each page. I am very pleased with him and his work. I would highly recommend Mr. Krasa to anyone needing a living trust.
We contacted Kyle about redoing our will and estate plan as we thought the one we had was not as complete and detailed as we wanted it to be.
We found Kyle to be instructive and very clear in explaining what he did and what it all meant. He is thorough, professional and we now feel comfortable that our concerns have been addressed.
-Bill and Barbara White
We met with Kyle to redo our Trust. It was NOT dreary, boring, or hard to understand. Kyle made it a fun and informative meeting with easy-to-understand explanations and suggestions. Kyle uses a drawing board to illustrate estate planning scenarios. We felt this is a great way to present the material he wanted to share with us. Kyle covered everything we wanted to discuss and we left feeling really good about getting our affairs in order. We are completely satisfied with Kyle's legal work and recommend him highly.
-Ginger and Dennis Ward
I am very pleased with my association with Kyle and his firm. He helped me make necessary changes to my trust with patience and understanding; the latest change demonstrated how well he understsood my situation and and Kyle recommended the perfect solution which brought me peace of mind. I also appreciate Kyle's sense of humor. I don't hesitate recommending Kyle to family and friends.
Kyle has been instrumental in my mother's care for the last 6 months. Diagnosed with kidney cancer at the end of August, she needed immediate help in updating her trust, will and advanced health care directive. Kyle was recommended to my mother by her school chum of over 70 years. Her friend insisted that Kyle was the very best so my 81 year old mother was not interested in any other lawyer despite the fact that his office was located an hour away. When I called to ask for a meeting not only was Kyle willing to make the drive to Capitola but he was also willing to meet us on a succession of Saturdays so I could be present. Last Friday night my mother passed away and I sent an email to Kyle Saturday morning asking what steps I needed to take next. He phoned less than an hour later offering his immediate assistance and cell number so I could talk with him during the weekend if needed. Kyle's professional manner and thorough planning are only overshadowed by his kindness and generous spirit. Thank you, Kyle. You are very much appreciated and admired in our family.
As PG Chamber President for the past 19 years, I had several options of Estate Planning attorneys. I selected Kyle A. Krasa based on reputation and several referrals. From the initial contact, I found Mr. Krasa prompt and responsive. It was truely a pleasure to do business with KRASA LAW. I found Kyle to be very patient, detailed, and exceptionally professional. Best of all, he was able to make us comfortable and treated us with respect. My wife and I were extremely impressed with his service. I highly, highly recommend KRASA LAW. It is the best investment we made in years.
We needed to have our trust updated and are happy that we were referred to Kyle. We were extremely pleased with his clear and concise explanation of the many complexities of estate planning. Kyle's thorough and professional manner made it a distinct pleasure to work with him. We would recommend him to anyone looking for estate planning guidance.
-John and Margaret Eller
We have had many opportunities to observe Counselor Krasa at work in Monterey, in Salinas with our clients, and in Pacific Grove. He has always shown himself to be exemplary in his civility, politeness, and ability to hear and "read" the client accurately the first time. He is considerably patient, highly ethical, and passionate in his teaching legal concepts, particularly regarding estate planning and trusts. Mr. Krasa was especially attentive to and gently considerate in helping our 90+ year old parents in their time of need. We have greatly enjoyed recommending Mr. Krasa over the years to those who have need of his services.

When it came time to start looking at how to put together my living trust, I decided to attend an estate planning presentation by Kyle A. Krasa. I was so impressed by his easily understandable and informative approach to estate planning, I immediately made an appointment to go over my concerns about putting together a legal document which makes it beneficial to me and my heirs at the end of my life. Kyle A. Krasa helped relieve my conerns. I feel this attorney put my end of life legal affaris in order in a trustworthy and competent way.
-Robert L. Keator
This is to thank you for the clarity of your explanations of inheritance laws, of the advantages and disadvantages of various modes of “joint” ownership of components of an “estate,” for your efforts to guide Peggy and me (though without coercion) in the direction most advantageous for us, and for preparing for us finally and splendidly organized our Living Trust – so well indexed that even I can navigate myself through its articles and pages to whatever I want to find.
I’m impressed by how well you were able to merge some of my own ideas of what should be expressed in an Advance Health Care Directive with the less specific medical instructions in the Probate Code version.
It helped also that you and your staff were able to do so many of the ancillary tasks – emendations of deeds, notarizations, et cetera – without requiring Peggy and me to make repeated visits to your offices, or to other agencies. It was a great convenience for persons, such as we, who no longer have the desire or the ability to drive. Thank you very much.
-Dr. Leon Bernstein
We worked with Kyle Krasa to focus our estate planning and set up a trust appropriate for us. Kyle presented information in a clear and fluid manner, always hitting the right tone. You can tell that he is the son of educators as a white board is always close by. Kyle's competent and casual manner allowed for easy communication. He asked questions and answered them clearly and consisely. He is an excellent listener. Kyle was recommended to us from a mutually respected colleague. We are happy with our choice and appreciate his work.
-Mary L. Adams and John Bailey
We asked Kyle Krasa to review our Estate Planning and he found many items that needed updating. We were very pleased with his clarity, vocabulary, and kind presence. As a result we recommended his services to friends and they found him to be very professional and appreciated his following thorugh on matters at hand in a timely manner. One of our friends, a retired federal judge and his family, used his services. His son, a Superior Court judge from Southern California, also appreciated the referral and thanked us.
- William and Connie Ziegenbein
We were referred to KRASA LAW by a trusted advisor who understsood our need to complete and update our Living Trust. It was important for us to find legal counsel who was competent, concerned, and locally accessible. Kyle Krasa did not disappoint. He was all of that and more. We found him to be personable, professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Through this thoroughness, peristence, and guidance, we were able to meet our goals.
-Jerry and Mary Harvel
Having Mr. Kyle Krasa as our living trust and special needs trust attorney has been a rewarding and pleasant experience. The mass amount of information, time, and concerns, that are required to accomplish this type of legal document have been eye-opening for both of us. We are thankful for Kyle's attention to detail, his extended help, and profesionalism. We are truly grateful.
-Marie and Armando Di Carlo
Kyle recently redid my will and trust. Extremely competent and always available for questions. Very caring and does excellent fact finding as to my assets and my wishes upon my death. Takes the time to answer questions in a relaxed atmosphere. I would definitely recommend KRASA LAW for any of your will and trust questions or completely redoing an existing trust.
- Ken Nelson
We were somewhat intimidated with the whole process of creating a living trust and had put it off for many years. Through our dear and long timed friends, Kyle Krasa’s name came up regarding this particular subject. I’ve worked with Kyle’s father, Peter, and have the highest regards for him. So we thought that his son Kyle would also exhibit true professionalism along with kind and gracious mannerisms.
Kyle has surpassed our high expectations regarding our journey through the legality of establishing our living trust. From the first meeting, Kyle understood our apprehension and was exceedingly patient, answering each and every question. If a certain point was not understood, Kyle would find another avenue to explain it more fully. We found that usage of the dry board and markers was an awesome medium to use!!!
We mustn’t forget that Kyle also managed to make this whole process not so solemn. Kyle is not only very kind and gracious, but he’s a very funny guy. This made the whole experience a very positive one, which we are grateful for.
Kyle Krasa is someone whom we can highly recommend for his expertise and kindness.
-Willie and Sharon Andora
Kyle A. Krasa, Esq. of KRASA LAW is one of the finest young men of our aqauaintance, either here in the United States or overseas. Kyle is a sincere, serious, and attentive attorney in every respect. Kyle and his wife, Amanda, are a fine credit to our community and we wish them good health and good fortune in the years to come. If anyone has a legal question to resolve, contact Kyle - he will find an answer.
-Col. Leonard L. Carter and Jytte W. Carter
Kyle helped us a great deal in updating our older trust as well as advising us on my mother-in-law's estate after her recent death. The tax code in the U.S. with regard to trusts is to complex for an atorney who does not specialize in estate planning as Kyle does to set everything up properly. I honestly recommend Kyle.
KRASA LAW has been my "trusted adviser" for many years and I have the deepest respect for Kyle A. Krasa and his staff. A more dedicated and trustworthy group would be hard to find. Their meticulous attention to details and concern for their clients' interest leaves me feeling completely at ease in their care.
We find dealing with KRASA LAW very satisfactory. All advice is clear, concise, and professional. We have recommended KRASA LAW to our friends.

Not a Question of Logic.
If you ever took “Philosophy 101,” you will most likely remember working out those necessary and sufficient statements. One pondered whether it was possible to have Y without X and / or did X guarantee the presence of Y? If you didn’t muddle through these kinds of statements, you will recognize the type of statement as the “If, Then” form. Every parent and every child is familiar with the relationship between conditions and consequences. These opening statements may seem a strange way to start a testimonial, but they were spurred by the following disclaimer, which can be seen at the top of this web page:
“Disclaimer: These testimonials or endorsements do not constitute a guarantee, warranty, or prediction regarding the outcome of your legal matter.”
One can translate this to Y ≠ X or X is not sufficient for Y. In this litigious society, one is prudent to issue such statements, but I disagree that they are required in Mr. Krasa’s case. Nothing in life is guaranteed, but we can make good choices for potentially better outcomes. We didn’t read the testimonials or his disclaimer. We chose him because we recognized an old fashioned value: probity, defined as “the quality of having strong moral principles; honesty and decency.” An additional definition also applies: “Strict adherence to a code of ethics based on undeviating honesty, especially in commercial (monetary) matters and beyond legal requirements.” Thus, without reservations, he is our choice for our family’s estate planning, because what Mr. Krasa offers goes well “beyond legal requirements.”

Mr. Krasa, my wife and I are very happy with the Estate Planning assistance that you have provided. From the beginning you were professional and attentive to our specific needs. After attending one of your seminars my wife and I realized that you were interested in providing exactly what we needed and not some boilerplate package that included items that we did not need. This alone was important in helping us understand the specifics of our estate. Our one-on-one consultation with you was pleasant, painless and revealing. The products that you generated based on our discussion were accurate and succinct. You stayed with us explaining each step of the way through the process of funding our estate and worked with the various financial institutions to make sure the funding was successful. We look forward to periodic reassessments of our estate needs with you and feel that we have received invaluable assistance at a reasonable and affordable price.
We were very pleased withe service that was provided for us by KRASA LAW. We would highly recommend Kyle to anyone that needs this type of service. Thanks again Kyle for all your help!
-Lou and Frieda Walker.
I highly recommend Kyle A. Krasa for any kind of work having to do with Estate Planning. He is extremely amiable, affable, and amicable. I'm also going to recommend that my son and compnaion see him for their Estate Planning. You will be very happy that you chose Kyle.
I met Kyle through Rotary many years ago and was impressed with his diligence and dedication to the principles of Rotary. I also noted his dedication to his chosen profession, and specifically to his area of expertise: estate planning.
Once I made the decision to use Kyle’s services, I have never looked back. In his patient manner, Kyle explained every aspect of the process and made my wife and I feel very comfortable that we had chosen the right professional to represent our interests.
I highly recommend Kyle Krasa’s estate planning services to anyone looking to work with a knowledgeable and ethical professional.
We were very impressed with KRASA LAW for several reasons. At our first meeting, we found Kyle Krasa to be a warm, sincere person who demonstrated his expertise in Living Trusts by clearly explaining the process to us. At one point where final signatures were needed, Kyle personally came to the skilled nursing facility where my husband was recuperating from surgery. In addition, the final binder with detailed sections of procedures is a handsome, professional product. Kyle and his staff have consistently been personally responsive during other times we had questions. Thank you Kyle and Marilyn for being client friendly.
- Bob and Janet Dreier
When I needed an attorney recently to make a living trust, Mr. Kyle Krasa was recommended to me by a good friend. Mr. Krasa is highly professional, trustworthy and a pleasure to deal with. He was very thorough in explaining all the details and making sure every possible situation that could arise was addressed in my living trust. He made all the legalese easy to understand and was always very respectful. He also made a living trust for my mother, who was ill at the time and required special accommodations on his part, which he did gladly. I really appreciated his tactfulness in dealing with the difficult questions required in doing a living trust.
I highly recommend Kyle and can’t say enough about his integrity and thoughtfulness.
-Manuel Jaimez and Victoria Jaimez
San Jose, California
We can't say enough about the wisdom, intelligence and patience Kyle has brought to turning our Living Trust wishes into a reality. Making sense of complex tax laws, estate intricacies, and family issues was handled by Kyle with sincerity and ease. He helped us plan accurately and achieved our highest goals for this often difficult process. It's never too early to start this thinking, and with Kyle as your guide, it will be smooth and mostly painless... and even done with a knowing smile. His seminars are extremely helpful in getting started, and his blog updates have provided thought-provokers for keeping our own thinking sharp. We took advantage of the complimentary first meeting kyle offered, and from then on we were thoroughly convinced we did the right thing with the right lawyer.
- Doug Weaver and Nancy Zimmerman, Pacific Grove
Kyle Krasa did an excellent job of restating our Family Trust by bringing it up to date with current laws. He did this in a very timely and efficient manner. Kyle is young, bright, and very knowledgable. His manner of explaining in "English" instead of "legalese" made the updating of our Trust a very pleasant experience. My wife and I would be happy to recommend KRASA LAW to anyone needing Estate Planning.
-James P. Calandra, CPA and Karen F. Calandra, Real Estate Broker
When my father passed away unexpectedly in Monterey, I was waiting for a flight at the Atlanta airport (I live in GA) and I began to search the Internet for Estate Lawyers. I interviewed three lawyers and when I met Kyle Krasa, I knew that he was the one for me. Kyle has a very easy going, calm & friendly demeanor and is also extremely knowledgeable, professional and efficient. He gave me great advice and very valuable information as to how to executed my father's trust. He made it easy for me to work with him remotely and I trusted him completely. I would highly recommend him without hesitation to anyone needing an Estate Lawyer.
Kyle A. Krasa was extremely helpful to my husband and me with our living trust. He is very knowledgeable and takes pride in the work he does. We would highly recommend him for any assistance you may need.
- Joe and Norma Favalora
In Kyle's seminar on "2010 Estate Tax and Capital Gains Tax - Rules and Impact," he took what could have been a very complicated subject and explained it in a simple and understandable manner. I appreciate that he was able to slice through a subject full of possible options and narrow it down to a few steps that were just plain practical.
- Jeff Varnum
After seeing firsthand what the lack of a trust does to families, we resolved to complete this long overdue goal of ours this past year.
The difficulty was finding someone with solid estate planning knowledge and credibility. Our previous attempts left us unsatisfied and without a trust. We tried an attorney through a legal benefit program offered by one of our employers and the “trust mill” route that seemed to be more of a ruse for gathering information to sell investment instruments than complete an estate plan.
Thankfully, a work colleague and our insurance agent separately referred us to Mr. Krasa. With two credible referrals, we felt confident in at least meeting with Kyle. It was evident from the first meeting that Kyle is a professional, knowledgeable and compassionate person who provides multiple options for his clients. He made a complex process rather simple and was quite patient in explaining any questions we had. When we wanted to include provisions for our surviving pets, Kyle arranged the necessary meetings with the beneficiary and documents to be included in our trust.
We have since referred Kyle to others seeking estate planning—some out of the Monterey Bay area as we think a trip to see Kyle would be well worth it.
- Greg Dukart and Lisa Fimby-Dukart
As in the case with many couples, my husband and I procrastinated about updating a very out of date trust. Finding Kyle was truly fortunate for us and our family. His professionalism and patience with our many questions has been very comforting. A potentially confusing process was explained very clearly and with great care. We feel confident that any future changes in our trust will be treated with the same integrity and we highly recommend Kyle to anyone needing assistance in this area.
- Tim and Diane Leister
Mr. Krasa helped close friends establish a trust, so when I needed help in addressing some complex issues pertaining to a trust that was established for my children by a relative in the State of New York, I sought his consultation and assistance. During this process, I appreciated Mr. Krasa’s integrity, kindness, dedication, clarity, knowledge, and skills in his work. He helped to resolve the problem in the most expedient and consumer friendly manner. He is renewing my faith in the legal profession.
- Jane Odegard
We had been thinking about our trust for quite some time. I noticed one day Bay Tax services had invited Kyle to have a seminar, and we decided we should get on with the dreaded event. After attending 2 of Kyle's seminars we knew there was no one else we wanted to have help us. No question is out of bounds. There are so many things you don't realize effect the trust. Kyle answered all our questions, and made sure we fully understood the answers. His professional approach, knowledge, and patience made this process flow with ease. We couldn't be any happier and would recommend him to all. Thank you, Kyle
- Mike Donahue and Michele Parrish
I have dealt with many attorneys both on a personal and business level in the past fifty years. I'm pleased to say that Kyle ranks among the very best. I feel very fortunate to have met him at his seminar several years ago. Now that we have spent more time together working on my estate I'm even more impressed. Kyle's knowledge and clarity by which he explains things has made a very difficult process a great deal easier for me. When I consider how young he is, it is quite amazing. I have already recommended Kyle to several of my friends. I feel comfortable doing the same to anyone who may need an estate planning attorney. It's been a pleasure doing business with Kyle.
- Ronald T Kohen
For a number of years I put off writing a will and setting up a trust. I am so glad that I connected with Mr. Krasa to draft these documents for me. He was helpful every step of the way. No question was too small or insignificant for him to address. He was always professional and respectful of my wishes while giving me legal advice on potential scenarios. I am very glad I had Mr. Krasa draw up these documents. It has given me peace of mind to know these are in place and that I can rely on Mr. Krasa for future updates.
I highly recommend him for estate planning needs.
After many years of procrastinating, we attended an Estate Planning Seminar presented by Kyle. We were immediately impressed by his knowledge of a subject we knew little of. Each time we met with Kyle, he was very pleasant and patient with our many questions and concerns. Kyle has a way of taking a difficult subject and making it easier to understand. We were also impressed by Kyle's professionalism and thoroughness he exhibited during the creation of our Trust. Not only did Kyle create our Trust, but he also helped 3 generations of our family (our grandmother, our parents and our brother's family) create or update their Trusts! It is comforting to know that Kyle is just a phone call away to help us with our continuing questions. We are all very satisfied that we have someone as dependable and trustworthy as Kyle helping us with our family's estate planning.
Rex and Tami Yahnke
As a teacher, I seldom recommend other professionals unless they are exceptional. For me to recommend someone, the person must be professional in every sense of the word. In an attorney, that means that he must hold himself to high standards, be knowledgeable and supportive, as well as friendly. Kyle Krasa does not only meet these standards, he exceeds them!
It is my pleasure to give my highest recommendation to Kyle Krasa for your legal needs related to estate planning, trust administration, probate, wills, trusts, and Medi-Cal planning. During the very difficult time of mom's declining health and her passing and dealing with all the legal aspects of it, my attorney, Kyle Krasa, was and still is outstanding. Due to his forethought and knowledge, my mother's wishes were carried out smoothly.
Some of you with local school district ties might recognize the last name. Kyle's father, Peter Krasa, was an elementary school principal in MPUSD for 30 years and his mother, Joan Krasa, taught at Bay View Elementary School for 28 years.
Kyle is a knowledgeable professional, supportive, and friendly. I cannot recommend Kyle enough when you need an attorney for I am positive that you will be happy with Kyle and the results he produces.
Remember, planning ahead is always a good idea!
I first met Kyle while serving on the Board of Directors of the Meals on Wheels program of the Monterey Peninsula in Pacific Grove. I have been in the field of aging for 30 years in several capacities, but primarily as the Academic Coordinator of The Resource Center on Aging at the University of California, Berkeley. During those years I have met and worked with countless professionals, and have never encountered anyone more competent, and at the same time kind-hearted and considerate than Kyle. Thus, when my then 93-year-old mother wanted to modify her will and trust, I immediately contacted him. He did a superior job presenting options for change succinctly and clearly. After the modifications - at my mom's request - he notified everyone involved, and provided everyone with a searchable copy of the document on a compact disc as well as a hard copy. But, to me, as important as his legal expertise, Kyle treated mom with the respect an elder deserves. Too many professionals assisting older adults find speaking to an individual's care giver expeditious, and literally overlook the person they are supposed to be serving. Kyle always spoke to mom directly as he would to a younger client, and turned to me only at times when it was absolutely necessary. I've called Kyle to clarify questions mom has about her will and trust, and he's always quick to answer. In addition at my request he's recommend other professionals for mom. I feel fortunate to have found such a dependable, trustworthy lawyer, I recommend him without reservation, and will definitely contact him with my own legal needs in the future.

During a very difficult transition in life with my mother, I was fortunate to be able to meet Kyle Krasa, who helped with this transition in a very caring and sensitive way. My elderly mother's medical needs became overwhelming and the means by which to take care of these needs, were dwindling. This is where Kyle's expertise helped me work through the bureaucracy maze. He knew how to navigate through all of it, and did it in an efficient and professional way, with a great deal of patience. Most of all he was very empathetic and kind throughout the whole process and sensitive to my mother's dilemma and health concerns. He even met with my mother in the nursing facility, during the process. I never felt rushed when I met with Kyle, and he understood my sense of urgency concerning my mother's situation. He met all necessary timelines and his follow-up with me and the appropriate individuals involved was outstanding. He returned my calls promptly and was very attentive when necessary.
I learned a lot about the kind of person Kyle is, going through this process, and all I can say is that Kyle is a person of great integrity and honesty and I give him the highest recommendation. Should you require the assistance of an attorney, don't hesitate to contact Kyle. You won't regret your decision.
- Olga Menendez
It is a pleasure to commend Mr. Krasa for his conscientious and comprehensive preparation of our living trust. Our confidence in him leads us to readily engage his services again in the future should there be a need with respect to our trust or estate.
- Judge Leo McCormick and Rosalie McCormick
We are very appreciative of Kyle for updating our living trust. Now we have a peace of mind that we finally accomplished our wish that we had for a long time. Kyle was very patient with us in order to determine what we really needed. We feel very comfortable to talk to Kyle about something important, as he is very friendly, yet very professionally efficient. We are willing to refer Kyle to anyone whom we know if they ever need help with their estate planning.
- Koji and Yoshie Okazaki
We first met Kyle Krasa at a seminar on "Updating your Trust" at our tax adviser's office. We were very impressed with his presentation and decided to make an appointment with him to update our living trust. He was helpful to us in many ways - he answered all of our questions (there were many), his patience was overwhelming, he offered suggestions we hadn't even thought about, and his great personality made us feel very much at ease. We highly recommend Kyle to anyone who is looking for a trust attorney.
- Eldon & Jean Allsup
Kyle's experience and detailed knowledge of the estate planning process provided us with invaluable guidance. He creatively and painstakingly adapted our plan to our specific situation. We are quite pleased with the results and are enjoying a big dose of peace of mind.
- Jim and Donna Champion
After my father passed away, I realized that it was long past time for me to establish my own living trust. I had consulted with several attorneys in my hometown of Hollister, but was not comfortable with them. When I first met Mr. Krasa, during my initial consultation, I knew that I had found the right attorney for myself. Mr. Krasa, in a friendly and professional manner, explained in clear detail how my living trust would work. I was very comfortable with his explanations and confident in his professional abilities. I am very pleased with the time and attention to details Mr. Krasa gave me. I highly recommend Mr. Krasa to anyone who is considering establishing their own living trust.
- Fallon Greig
Kyle Krasa has updated my living trust as well as other legal matters that I needed help on. He knows exactly what to do and how to do it. He has followed up with phone calls of concern and encouragement. I am confident with his knowledge and am relieved that I have found someone that I can go to who will fight in my corner.
- Victoria Thompson
We had been planning to set up our living trust for years, ever since our two children were born. Finally, we decided to visit Kyle based on a friend's recommendation. Kyle set up our trust for a very reasonable fee, explained everything to us clearly, and gave us confidence that it was being done right. It was well worth the drive from San Jose to Pacific Grove to have this peace of mind. We recommend Kyle to anyone thinking about establishing a living trust, especially those like us who put it off for too long.
- Beth and Jordan Cookman
My wife and I had a living trust that was made years ago, and amended four times but we were still not happy and comfortable with it. Mr. Krasa helped us resolve our feelings and uncertainties and made the trust the way we wanted. We now feel very comfortable with it. We highly recommend Mr. Kyle Krasa as a excellent advocate and friendly guide.
- John and Patricia Sousa
2008 was a very trying year for our family. Not only did our parents have medical issues, but we also found that their will/trust did not meet their changing needs. Thanks to Kyle at KRASA LAW for providing well needed direction. Not only did he bring their trust “up-to-date” but also provided liaison service between our family and Monterey County Social Services. Having someone on your side to deal with the bureaucracy is a heaven sent! I recommend Kyle to all my friends!
- Mary Bunch
My wife and I lead very active lives, and knew that a living trust was an essential part of maintaining a peace of mind about our future. Kyle helped us get past the uncertainties and provided us a positive and productive experience. He helped us feel comfortable when asking the important questions and reassured us about the choices that we made. We highly recommend Kyle Krasa as an excellent advocate, partner and guide in planning for your future.
- Ralph and Maureen Porras
We had talked about setting up a living trust for quite some time. After attending one of Kyle's seminars on living trusts, we felt the time was right and decided that Kyle was the one to help us. It's such a relief to have our living trust in place now, and it was such a pleasure working with Kyle. He made us feel very comfortable when having to make some tough decisions regarding the trust details. We have complete confidence in Kyle and will certainly continue to seek his help in any future legal matters.
- Jim and Judy Souza
My wife and I finally have some peace of mind after having taken the necessary steps to have a living trust prepared by Mr. Kyle Krasa. Kyle is not only competent and professional but was also very courteous and patient with us. He listened to our many concerns and answered a number of questions due to our ignorance about such matters. We strongly recommend Kyle for preparing your wills, trusts or estate planning.
- Dennis and Olga English
As a CPA, I am very careful about giving out referrals to clients but I have worked with Kyle professionally and personally and I am very comfortable referring clients and friends to Kyle. I have worked with Kyle on my mother's estate, setting up my own living trust, and also on a family real estate transaction. I have complete trust in Kyle to handle all my legal affairs.
Like many, we procrastinated for far too long on one of the most important things we could do to protect our children's future: our family trust. After dabbling with do-it-yourself software and wasting time listening to low price trust mills, we were fortunate enough to meet Kyle. The quality of advice and guidance that Kyle provided was far superior compared to anything we had encountered previously, and we are thankful knowing it was done right with Kyle. Most importantly, we feel we have a trusted advisor in Kyle for all our family estate planning needs, now and for years to come.
