May is an outstanding professional. She did Wills for all our family: myself, my husband and then she did additional work for our son's family too because they wanted to be done with May as well. Her detailed and meticulous approach were something every professional should learn in order how to really be performing. Not only did she helped to draft our Wills twice and included all the necessary changes right on time, but she did that while I was very busy travelling and so there were no delays and complications from all that for me too. She always responded to my communications as early as possible from her side and I can't recommend her enough to anyone who is interested in quality rather than just someone who does not care about their work ethic and clients that much. Moreover, her rates for such work were very-very reasonable too.
May was the fourth Wills and Estate lawyer I went to talk to and it was like day and night between the prior lawyers I met to May's approach. Firstly, May suggested that we list my assets separately so it would be easier for my family members to identify where to search and for what assets in the Will (exactly what I wanted right from the beginning) in case if something were happen to me unexpectedly and I wouldnt have time to go over through these with them. Secondly, and right from the very start, I also wanted to formally separate what I want to leave to each family member, considering their level of responsibility and maturity along with the fact that I do not want to disclose it all to the family members for now in all the details so not to cause any family disputes, and May totally supported me on that contrary to all previous lawyers who just wanted to draft very basic standard Will without any of these details as it would take too much of their time to do it for such fee, even though I was okay with paying the higher rate but, in order, just to make it all right the way I want it for me. Thirdly, I also wanted to draft a Power of Attorney/Power of Care in case if something unexpectedly were to happen to me and May also prepared these documents for me.
All in all, many lawyer nowadays want to do as minimum amount of work as possible and just to get the money out of clients without any care at all and this was definitely not the case with May. May Elajami is definitely a very diligient professional who you want to have a long lasting relationship with and to be your Family Lawyer in general altogether. Definitely recommend her to All!
