"I have experienced much progress during the past two months. My mother
has settled into her new skilled nursing facility and seems reasonably
content there. With your help I successfully transferred title for 10%
of my property from my trust to my mother’s trust. I also applied
for Medi-Cal benefits on behalf of my mother and just yesterday received
approval. My objectives have been realized, and you both were a big part
of those accomplishments! Thank you very much for all your help."
"I retained Lubna Jahangiri and Linda Blackwell to assist me with
a real estate challenge. My property is not in an area of close proximity
to where I live. I required advice and a solution for a difficult tenant
situation, as well as some education on the leasing laws of California.
Both Lubna and Linda were professional, transparent and timely in all
of their responses. They solved my problems to my satisfaction in a matter
of days. They went the extra mile, demonstrating sensitivity to time zone
differences, making themselves available at odd times. I could not have
asked for a more positive experience and solution to a most frustrating
situation. I'd recommend Santaella, Blackwell and Jahangiri to anyone
with a legal issue. Their integrity and expertise was immediately evident
even from 17,000 kilometers away! "
"Lubna has a combination of experience and education that is truly
exceptional: she is an adjunct professor, a successful litigator, and
a veteran attorney. She is compassionate with her clients and contributes
significant time towards making a difference in her community. I highly
recommend Lubna as an attorney for small businesses and entrepreneurs."
"Ivette Santaella is very personable and makes the entire process
of creating an estate plan much easier. What I appreciated most was her
willingness to help me through the pre-work, answering questions and making
sure I was clear on the language and terms of the trust. I value her as
a knowledgeable attorney and someone I trust."
"Ivette helped us draft a very specific Advanced Health Care Directive
and a comprehensive will. She took the time to get to know the needs and
values of my wife and I, all the while being sensitive and kind, especially
since drafting a will can inherently be sensitive in nature. I have since
recommended her services to my family, and I will continue to refer to
her. She is truly passionate about what she does, and her integrity is
of the highest caliber."
"Ivette Santaella is an experienced, energetic, client-focused attorney
who moves her clients through the estate planning process with ease and
clarity. Her consultative approach ensures that her clients understand
the process, make informed decisions, and recevie an estate plan that
provides a solid foundation for years to come."

"I used the services of Blackwell & Santaella after hearing a
community presentation by Ms. Santaella on "Trusts". I am so
happy and pleased with their services. I worked with Ivette and she was
so efficient, thorough and explained the process to me completely as we
completed my documents. The whole process was made very easy starting
with a questionnaire, prompt responses by email, meeting with her and
then finalizing, complete with the notary present in her office. Her office
even handled the recording of the trust and I promptly received my copy
of the recorded final document in the mail."
"Lubna represented my company in a recent contractual issue. In my
interactions, I was very pleased with her understanding of my situation;
she was very responsive to my questions and patiently explained all aspects
of the case and available options to me. I found her to be detail oriented
and very effective in getting a speedy resolution in my company's
favor. I would whole-heartedly recommend her services to any other company."
