About Sandin Law

Kind words from the people who know us best.

Extremely Thorough and Helpful

“We had an excellent experience preparing our will and trust with Kristen Traiser at Sandin Law.  She was extremely thorough and helpful including everything we needed.  She was also really patient and understanding when we l had to bring our toddler to a meeting.  We highly recommend the team at Sandin Law.”

Sandin Law Took a Complex, Out of State Process and Streamlined It

“What a relief!!  My father passed away in the state of ND and left my brother and I in charge to manage his estate.  We live out of state and had no idea where to start.  I was referred to Sandin Law by my local Estate attorney.  We couldn’t be more thankful. Sandin Law took a complex out of state process and streamlined it.  They guided us every step of the way making a very long and arduous process straight forward.  They were able to do this so efficiently, we were able to wrap up all accounts, home sale, property management in just a matter of MONTHS, not years. On top of their expertise, the office is just plain kind and understanding.  We worked directly with Ellie Steffes, Brianna, and Kelly.  Do yourself a favor when a loved one passes–make the complicated process a breeze with this firm.  They are professional, responsive, caring and efficient.”

The Service that Sandin Law Provided was Excellent

“I recently worked with Jessica at Sandin Law for a land sale.  The service that Sandin Law provided was excellent.  Jessica was very quick in responding to my correspondence and answering any questions I had.  She did a great job informing me of the steps that needed to be done.  Their service was done quickly and efficiently.  Jessica was super easy to work with.  If you are looking for a law firm to work with for a land sale, I highly recommend Sandin Law.”

My "Go To Office" For Over 15 Years

“The Sandin Law office has been my “go to office” for developing and maintaining my long-term end of life estate plan for well over 15 years.  These folks are always accommodating, friendly, cheerful, knowledgeable and prepared to get right to the issue at hand.  Over time I have had other offices work on my estate planning matters, but none come close to the service, knowledge and professionalism that I have had and continue to get from the Sandin Law Office!”

An Outstanding Experience

“Toni and team created an outstanding experience reviewing our estate planning, providing state of the art best practice updating the plan for our family. The team approach worked exceptionally well, led by Kelly. Our “homework” detailing all assets, titles, etc. in advance of our first meeting set the foundation for the planning to come. We found a couple assets whose titles were incorrect, and the comprehensive review led to discussions in depth defining critical decisions to our overall estate plan. When the time came to sign the updated plan, we left feeling very confident everything in the details reflected not only our wishes, but also the most recent legal and accounting protocol allowing us to be most efficient possible. Most important, we feel really good about the Sandin team, and our estate plan for our family!”

Great Firm For Estate Planning

“We worked with Ellie and Sandin Law to set up our estate planning documents in preparation for the birth of our first child.  Ellie was great to work with and understood all of our needs.  She was able to explain everything so that we understood what was going into the documents.  Her team was able to get us a list of any information that they still needed to finish so that nothing was missed.  When we met a 2nd time she went over every section of every document and made sure we did not have any questions and that all of our wishes were properly documented.  Her team did a great job packaging all of our documents and made copies for us as well.  We would highly recommend Ellie and Sandin Law for any estate planning!”

I Feel Very Fortunate To Have Found Sandin Law

“A search on the Internet for an estate planner led me to Sandin Law. I made a call to their office to set up an appointment and right from the start, there was a friendly, welcoming voice on the other end of the phone, Brianna. From there, I was referred to Attorney Ellie Steffes. Ellie, along with assistance from Aeryial, set up an estate plan for me. Ellie was pleasant to work with, thorough, knowledgeable and informative, guiding me all the way through the process. I feel very fortunate to have found Sandin Law by just doing a search on the internet for an estate planner. It was something I had wanted to do for years and can now feel comfortable knowing I have it done and had exceptional people handling it! I would highly recommend their firm for your estate planning.”

Made The Whole Process Effortless

“We had put off our estate planning for a long time, mainly because we dreaded the process and didn’t know which law firm would be a good choice for us. We are so happy we chose Sandin Law.

They answered all our questions and helped us understand the intricacies involved in estate planning. We couldn’t be happier with their service and attention to detail. We highly recommend Sandin Law!”

Exceptional To Work With

“Sandin Law firm was exceptional to work with. I needed, and dreaded, the process of creating a trust. I was recommended from business associates Sandin Law firm, among others, and I’m very glad I made the initial call to Sandin Law. Brianna, the Office Manger, who took my first call was very professional and cheerful to work with. She was very helpful in setting up meetings, keeping me updated, relaying information, and sending and retrieving documents in a timely manner. Kristen, my Attorney, was extremely informative, exceptionally helpful in answering any questions I had, and very professional throughout the entire process. What I initially dreaded as a legal process that would drag on for months… Sandin Law was, overall, very professional, responsive, extremely efficient, and quick in completing the entire process.”

So Happy We Chose Sandin Law

“We were in need of updating our Will and needing an estate plan.  Our experience with Sandin Law was very easy and relaxed.  Most people needing an estate plan, Will and Living Will really don’t know what the family, tax, and legal pitfalls are and that may come into play.  Sandin Law and staff were very knowledgeable and helpful as they counseled us on what would be the best path forward for our family.  We felt so relieved to get this taken care of and are so happy we chose Sandin Law.”

Couldn't Be Happier With Our Experience

“We couldn’t be happier with our experience and Sandin Law.  Kristen and Brianna were incredibly professional, patient, detail oriented and kind.  At my Mom’s request, my sister and I were included in every stop of assisting our 85-year-old Mom in updating her affairs.  Kristen listened and took the time to answer Mom’s every question.  Kristen ensured Mom was comfortable with all the language, understood the process and offered suggestions that helped us make better choices.  Brianna was always on target and extremely responsive.  We highly recommend Sandin Law for your legal needs.”

Highly Respected By All

“Wholeheartedly, our family was very pleased with the law services Toni Sandin and Sandin Law provided us in many ways. We, as most families, needed help with estate planning, business transactions, transfer of wealth and health care directives. She recommended a Revocable Family Trust. This helped with income and legal protection, as well as, future equal transfer of assets to our daughter’s families and designated non-profits we have supported for years. Around this same time, we made the decision to have a retirement and business transfer. Toni represented ALL parties involved and was highly respected by all for her knowledge and professionalism. We were very pleased with her assistance with all these transactions. We consider Toni Sandin a friend, but as important, as an attorney and Sandin Law are wholeheartedly highly recommended by all.”

We Give Them A Five-star Rating

“Highly recommend Sandin Law and we give them a five-star rating!

We needed a law firm to represent our son’s estate through probate.  We chose Sandin Law and are very happy with our decision.  Their professionalism, knowledge of the law and compassion we were shown was above our expectations.  We also had them prepare our estate planning, wills, power of attorney and health care directives.  Thank you so much Kristen, Brianna and Kelly for going above and beyond our needs!”

Toni Is Personable And Just Who You Want To Have As Your Partner

“Why did we choose Toni Sandin to prepare our estate plan?  Toni is extremely knowledgeable, professional and has a process that is very easy to follow when preparing our estate plan.  Toni is personable and just who you want to have as your partner in preparing a very important document such as your estate plan!  What was important to me is the fact that my wife felt very safe and trusted Toni and her staff to be there for her if I were gone.  Most estate attorneys can prepare an estate plan; however, will they be helpful for the spouse left behind?  Especially if the one left behind is not astute in legal and financial matters?  I know Toni and her staff will be for either Marsha or myself.”
