Estate Planning to Protect What You Love

Our experienced estate planning attorneys can help protect your life’s work from the Government, Taxes, Lawsuits, or Creditors, or Nursing Home.
My husband and I attended a dinner seminar at Season's Restaurant that Matthew books in a private dining area at the restaurant. Not only was the dinner great, but the seminar itself was very informative and Matthew made it really easy for us to follow along as he explained the procedures of how to create a trust. We still had a few questions for Matthew so he invited us to dinner again (at Season's) so we could fully understand how he would prepare a trust for us. After attending the second seminar (and yes, another delicious dinner) my husband and I realized that Matthew Crider was the attorney that we wanted to prepare our trust for us. The overall process was relatively simple -- Matthew met with us in his Davis office, explained the process of the paperwork he would need, how we could obtain it and what the fee would be to prepare our trust. Any time we had a question or problem, either Matthew or someone from his office was available to answer our questions. I really liked the finished project; everything neatly contained within a binder and tucked away up on the shelf. Matthew will meet with you every few years to go over the information in case you have a life change; so far we have not had to use that service. I was so pleased with his work, I recommended my sister-in-law use him as her attorney to prepare her trust.
Matthew helped me set up my trust/estate. He was very professional and efficient. I highly recommend him!
Matthew and his team are very resourceful and thoughtful for their client. They will explain all technical details and lead you to the arrangement that you are happy with. That was my first time doing planning of this sort, but they will help and make sure you will have the knowledge quickly.
After putting off estate planning Power of Attorney and Health Care for years, I turned to Matt for his guidance. He walked me through many scenarios to ensure I had it "right" for me and my family when the times comes for making decisions. Both Matt and his staff are personable and professional and make this a much easier process than I anticipated.
I am at retirement age and I discussed options with many of my friends and neighbors who had planned their wills and trusts. I looked at different law groups including attending a Crider Law Group free seminar. I generally believed lawyers who advertise can't be that good but Matthew Crider's absolutely no pressure informative approach appealed to me. When my mother died, she used a well known law firm so I knew what to expect. Crider Law Group was very comparable. Matthew's rates are reasonable no matter how big or in my case, small your estate is. I was able to take my time and ask any and as many questions as I needed. Their nonjudgmental friendly approach made the legal decisions alot easier to make. It relieved alot of my anxiety, especially around my healthcare wishes and my pets. I highly recommend them.
Matthew doesn't just provide a trust, or a will, but helps you develop a comprehensive estate plan taking into consideration the needs of your entire family. He's a good listener and was a pleasure to work with.
Matthew and the entire Crider Law Group are an absolute pleasure. Michelle and Lori are both extremely easy to get ahold of when questions arise and always respond promptly if a message is left for them. The entire group made my entire experience easy and stress free. They are beyond accommodating and always go above and beyond to please clients and make sure every wish is fulfilled when it comes to their client's future and their client's families future. I would give 10 stars if allowed and will continue to use Crider Law Group in the future for any legal purposes.
Matthew and his team were great and easy to work with. I needed 3 legal issues resolved. 1 - Change my name legally, 2 - A prenuptial agreement and 3 - A family trust. All 3 were resolved easily and professionally. If I need legal counsel in the future, I would not hesitate to contact Crider Law Group for assistance. I would recommend Crider Law Group for your legal needs.
It was a pleasure working with Matthew, he's very knowledgeable. Michelle was also very helpful and helped me out quite a bit when I needed responses quickly. I recommend their services and would use them again.
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Matthew in "putting our affairs in our". In my initial meeting with Matthew I found him to be professional, personable and helpful -- just the sort of person one needs in attacking such an important matter. Once we agreed to work with him I was amazed at how his team jumped into action - we had several people working with us to address our needs and help us with the documents, but Matthew was never far away and everyone on the team was kind and professional. We are very pleased and I love the peace of mind knowing that we have this in place.
We had a professional and pleasant experience working with Matthew and his team. The office is highly responsive and attentive. The process was made simple and tailored to meet our needs. Michelle and Lori were great to work with as well.
Excellent outcomes, great listeners, and a genuine commitment to meet their client's specific needs.
I had a very good experience with the Crider Law Group. I worked directly with Matthew Crider in creating a trust. Matthew was very informative each step of the way, answer all my questions and concerns. I will no doubt in the future continue to depend on Matthew and his incredible staff for other legal needs as they arise.
Crider Law Group put together our Family Estate Plan and Will with expertise and professionalism. It’s peace of mind that took a big weight off our shoulders. We should have done this years ago but its never too late. Thanks Matthew and Staff.
Matthew and his Staff are very responsive and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend them for all Estate Planning needs.

Very professional and prompt response.
Matthew and his team made our estate planning so easy and stress free. Will absolutely be referring all our friends and family.
We had Mathew Crider write new trust wills for us early this year. He, and the office, made the process go smoothly. I hope that when the time comes, the office will treat my survivors equally well.
We have been going to Crider Law for 5 years. They do consistently great work. Matthew and his team are a pleasure to work with and have been very helpful in our estate planning process. I highly recommend them.

It was a pleasure to work with Matthew Crider and his team on our family trust. They were professional, detail oriented, and knowledgeable. Even after the trust was complete, we continued to receive helpful personalized information. I would highly recommend the Crider Law Group.
Matthew and the entire team, Michelle, Lori and Gene are very responsive and professional. Very helpful in all aspects.
The entire law office was friendly, kind and knowledgeable about Estate Planning. Their communication was fast and efficient and they helped guide us through the process of altering our old trust into a more current and relevant trust. I plan to continue working with The Crider Law Group for any further estate planning needs we have and certainly recommend them to anyone.
Great experience with our estate plan! The final result was comprehensive and well organized.
Having both reached retirement age and having concern for the future of our adult child and grandchildren, concerning our estate, we decided to research the creation of a revocable living trust.We attended an information workshop by Matthew Crider about estate planning. Having attended other similar presentations, we felt this experience was different. Matthew presented the information in an accessible way using common language without complex legal jargan. His many visual aides explained complex information which, helped to simplify and unify the many details involved with estate planning.Matthew's friendly and professional manner helped us to feel comfortable and trusting of his abilities to help us organize and plan our estate. Along with feeling confident with Matthew's professional services, we felt his pricing was very reasonable and well within our budget.Matthew and his staff, Gene, Lori and Michelle, were very courteous and helpful when answering all of our questions and concerns. The staff provided us with all the necessary documents, for our review, in a timely manner. All necessary changes or corrections were completed seamlessly.The Crider Law Firm exceeded our expectations by creating an all inclusive estate plan which, among other things, included a revocable living trust.The planning for one's possible incapacity and death, and the resulting distribution of personal assets acquired over a life time, can be a challenging and emotional process. We felt the kindness and attentiveness of Matthew helped to ease much of our stress.The resulting Estate Planning Portfolio, is a very well organized and complete document which covers many areas we would never have concidered, had we attempted creating it on our own. We are very grateful for the Crider Law Firm's support and our estate portfolio.We now, can rest knowing our heirs have a roadmap of our wishes and will inherit our personal assets without undue complications or stress.
Matthew and his team did a wonderful job in helping us create our family trust. We have been thinking of creating our family trust for a few years but kept on postponing after listening to others on how complicated and involved the process is. Without having much prior knowledge of what the content/terminology of the trust, Matthew has developed a logical step by step process with a very comprehensive questionnaires and timely short videos that guides us through the entire process. We are able to complete our family trust is a short amount of time and his team deliver a very organized and professional documents that is easy to follow and for future updates. Thank you !!
Matt Crider is someone in whom you can put your faith and trust. Great lawyer. If you've been putting off things like a living trust etc., I suggest you call and make an appointment. Totally reliable.
Matthew did an excellent job as our attorney in selling our property.I know he has a lot of clients, so his prompt responses and attention to detail really meant a lot to us. He also executed some necessary changes in our Family Trust, with great legal advice, in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of his services.
