I was recommended by a friend years ago. When I used their services for the first time, I noticed their honesty and quality of work were superior to what I was used to from my previous lawyer. So, we stuck to them all these years. They have done a number of real estate transactions for us and recently my will. I would highly recommend their services.
Richard Housen has been my lawyer for sixteen years. Over the years he has provided excellent service in a variety of legal matters. Housen Law continues to provide exemplary service and demonstrates a commitment to clients that goes above and beyond.
My husband and I recently had our Wills prepared by Housen Law. We were very impressed with the professional manner we saw, and we were given excellent guidance that helped us through this process. The rate charged for doing the Wills was a very good rate compared to other law firms. We were also amazed at how fast the Will was prepared. The previous Wills that we had done by a different law firm did not compare to the Wills prepared by Housen Law. Both my husband and I would highly recommend Housen Law. We all need the peace of mind, that our wishes are carried out after we go, and I am confident that Housen Law will do that.
I recently attended Housen Law after the passing of my wife. Richard demonstrated a warm, genuine care and concern for my affairs. He took the time to fully explain my options in a clear, practical manner and provided me with the most professional support and expert guidance I could have asked for. I am extremely satisfied that all matters regarding my will and estate have been properly dealt with by Housen Law. – F.C.

My experience with Housen Law was very positive. They were very professional and the service was excellent. My file was ready with the documents for me to sign when I arrived. Every piece of document that I signed was explained to me in detail. I received my account and payout statement quicker than I expected. I was very satisfied with the service and I would recommend Housen Law without hesitation.
Recently I decided to revisit my will due to family changes and health issues. I decided to choose Housen Law knowing of Richard's years of experience and his involvement in our community. I was pleased with the time Richard spent explaining the implications of each possible decisions re choosing executors and ensuring my beneficiaries are well looked after.
