What Our Clients Say
"Keoni is professional, kind, thorough, prompt, considerate, communicates well, knowledgeable and always prepared. What I liked most was the convenience for my father to meet with him via zoom, which saved time and money without the commute. Further Keoni is a local boy, so proud that we can support each other as Kanaka Maoli. Thank You Keoni for making this challenging and uneasy process of estate planning easier for dad and I to understand and put into place! We have also recommended you to friends who are considering estate planning."
"Keoni made my estate planning seem so seamless and easy to understand on what I can/should do. Options were clear and concise. Thought it would be a lot harder to do this. Had I known, I would have done my estate planning years ago!
Meetings and follow up meetings were done very professionally. He answered all concerns that I had.
I know that my kids will be taken care of when I'm gone. Only concern I have is that I hope and pray my kids will not fight and retaliate against each other. But by then, it'll be out of my hands..."
"After reviewing several estate planning organizations, we decided to go with the Law Office of Keoni Souza and we're glad we did. Keoni helped us to better understand the complexity of estate planning and explained things at our level. He has a great longevity plan set up that makes us feel confident about our future plans. We believe Keoni's services are worth talking about and we've already recommended his estate planning services to our family and friends."
"We were looking for a new estate/trust attorney for my mom for an update her estate. My mom's previous attorney had passed away with no referral. My husband, Mike, searched the web and came across Keoni's webpage. We made an appt for consultation and were really impressed with his questions that he sent us prior to the consultation to prepare us with what info he would need in order to see if he could help my mom's estate. Mind you, I live in Las Vegas and my mom lived on Oahu. We did Zoom calls which was easy for anyone to use. Once we were done, Keoni gave us a well organized portfolio that holds all the documents and it is also accessible in the cloud using Keoni's vault. I would highly recommend the Law Office of Keoni Souza for estate planning. His office will definitely get your estate in order so you don't have to worry."
"Although this is my first time working with Keoni, I found him to be extremely personable and a happy go lucky type of person; an individual you'd want to be around and get to know on a personal level. He's very easy to talk to. While planning out my estate, it was very easy to understand him and ask the questions I needed answered without embarrassment. He made you feel right at home. In the beginning I was wondering how were we going to accomplish this virtually, but in the end we did it with no problems, without having to meet in person. JOB WELL DONE KEONI!!!"
"You truly educated us on our Estate Plan. We were AMAZED with how thorough you processed our documents, and made it easy for us to have it signed and notarized. You and your Team are AWESOME!!! We are truly BLESSED, GRATEFUL and APPRECIATE your time with us! We'll definitely encourage our family and friends to get their Estate Plan done by you. THANK YOU AGAIN KEONI for being so patient with us!"
"Working with Keoni Souza for our trust was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend his services. Everything was well organized, professional, and flexible to fix our schedule and our specific requests. Highly recommend without any reservations."
"I been procrastinating, Until I came across Keoni & the staff who helped me through the process with ease. Keoni is very knowledgeable and willing to listen to my priorities! Thank you for your patience and expertise, with estate planning and most importantly leaving a legacy for my children."
"My husband and I worked with Keoni on the recommendation of my in-laws, who had also set up their Trust with him. We had put off this important task for long enough because we were unsure of what it would require of us, but we knew that we needed to get it done. Keoni made the process very easy, while also making sure we clearly understood the benefits and ramifications of each choice we were making. While setting up a Trust is a somewhat costly endeavor, the peace of mind it gives us in knowing that our children will be taken care of should anything happen to us is well worth the cost. We also appreciate that Keoni will continue to meet with us to make sure that everything is up to date and covers our needs as time passes. Having dealt with probate in dealing with settling my mom's estate, I know firsthand how important this process is. We highly recommend Keoni to handle this delicate but vital process for you and your family. Don't put it off; get it done in a timely, simple manner with a knowledgeable and efficient advisor in Keoni."
"Keoni made it so easy to create a trust plan that suits my family needs. We are a busy family of 5 with full time jobs & full sports schedules, and we knew it was important to get this done to secure our future. He gives different tiers of plans and prices and it is definitely worth the money and the time saved by going to a professional like Keoni. Keoni is straight forward, very organized and very respectful of his client's time. When notarizing the trust Keoni provided detailed instructions on how to execute, and the notary was so impressed with the tabs on where she needed to sign, where the client & their witnesses needed to sign. It was such an easy process that anyone can go to the bank and get the documents notarized themselves. I highly recommend Keoni's services."
"My husband and I had gone to Keoni to prepare out Trust for our family. He is very knowledgeable since he himself has experiences working through issues with his own mother and had shared his story with us. He was very patient in explaining things not only with my husband and I. But also my older children so they will know what to expect and their rolls when the time comes. Any time we had a question, he would be there and promptly answered any calls or emails we sent the same day. Its been a year and he's still following up with us to see if everything is current to ensure our families well being. We have confidence in saying if you're looking for legal services. Keoni is an excellent choice and will strongly recommend and refer to our friends and family."
"My husband and I are very pleased with Keoni’s estate planning services! We went to see Keoni to make sure our son would be taken care in the event something unexpectedly happened to us. What stood out about our experience with Keoni was his high level of service, communication and desire to educate us. What set him apart from other attorneys we met was his responsiveness (we would typically receive a response to emails within 24 hours). We are happy to have met Keoni and look forward to working with him in the decades to come."
"My husband and I worked with Law Office of Keoni Souza on creating our Trust documents and Estate Planning. We recommend EVERYONE to work with Keoni. If you haven't thought about trust documents or your will - you should definitely reconsider. Keoni took the time to educate us on the importance of these documents as well as broke down every part so it was easy to understand. The entire time we meet via Zoom and on Saturday mornings which was ideal for both our schedules. When I initially was looking to work with law firms, other law firms were not available on the weekend. Keoni is very responsive to emails and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. He even offers a complimentary phone call prior to working with you to see if he can be of help. It was on that initial phone call that I made my decision to work with Keoni. He showed that he cared about our situation and was eager to help my husband and I. In addition, Keoni made the process super easy! It was actually fun as I learned so much and now fully understand the importance of power of attorney, having a will and placing all your items in a trust. In addition, he offers a complimentary Legacy interview which you can pass on your values and morals to those close to you. We thought that was really unique. It was a great experience and we are happy with the end result. We look forward to having Law Office of Keoni Souza and Keoni as our estate lawyer for years to come."
"I am deeply grateful for the Law Office of Keoni Souza. Keoni was extremely reliable, thorough, generous, clear, and supportive throughout the entire process of developing my estate plan. He offered patience and clarity and assistance that went beyond my expectations. It was unique also in that he offered a complimentary Legacy Interview to pass on more than just my money, a complimentary Kids Protection Plan to keep my kids out of the foster care system and out of the hands of other strangers, complimentary triennial plan reviews to ensure that my plan keeps up with my life, assets, and the law, 24/7 online access to planning documents, specific trust funding instructions and support, convenient virtual meetings so I didn't have to sit in traffic or even leave my home, asset tracking so my beneficiaries can find everything on their own and nothing is lost to the state's unclaimed property program, as well as an optional membership program to help me keep my plan updated annually so it doesn't fail my family, flat fee plans as opposed to hourly billing to keep costs in check, no-charge phone calls or emails for questions about my plan so that I don't have to worry about surprise bills in the mail. I highly recommend Keoni Souza for this very important endeavor."
"Keoni is a very kind, humble and caring person that will help you get what you need and will go thru each stage so you understand. I highly recommend him and if any of my friends ask I will have them give him a call. Thank you Keoni for you all your help."
"I just completed my estate planning with Keoni and I would like to send a big Mahalo to him for such a great experience. I have been putting off making my plan for a few years because I couldn't find the right company that made me "feel" comfortable. Keoni's webpage appeared in my FB feed and once I listened to his story, his "why" behind going into estate planning, I knew I found the right person. He is down to earth and passionate about what he does. He will explain the whole process in layman's terms to ensure you understand it all. He is VERY organized and when he told me he color coded his forms to make it easier for the notary I was in heaven as I do the same thing in my line of work as a nurse...just another sign I was at the right place 😁 If you want a worrisome free experience I would recommend you give him a call!"
"Wow, such a heart enduring experience. I did it solo as my child father passed. He was so kind and understanding when I asked way too many questions. Thank you!! I will recommend to ALL I know! Mahalo!"
"If you’re looking to secure your family’s estate, Keoni Souza is the person to contact. He is professional, efficient and offers a package that most do not. I’m addition to the basic estate planning, he includes a video legacy interview, hard copies, digital copies, online access to your documents and best of all a package that allows you to update your documents annually! I highly recommend Keoni Souza."
"Keoni created a living trust for my parents, and he was great to work with! He answered my parents' questions patiently and answered my emails in a timely fashion. He also followed up as he worked through each step of the process. I appreciated that he checked in to make sure we were moving items along to completely the trust in a timely fashion. I really appreciate how informative his initial session was and he presented all the information in an consistently understandable way. If possible, I recommend you attend one of his informational workshops, available on his website. It's what really convinced me that he could meet my family's needs."
"Thank you so much for all your support, your excellent service, and friendship! I was so happy and excited to received my portfolio. And I feel so relieved and at peace to have completed a Will and Estate Plan for me and my kids with a trusted Attorney! Keoni sincerely cares what he does for his clients by educating them in protecting themselves, their family and future. Most importantly, coming from a single parent of two young children, his Kids Protection Plan gives me an assurance that every aspect from protective custody to healthcare information is covered should I become incapacitated or get into an accident. In all the zoom meetings with Keoni, he took you through each step by explaining and guiding you thoroughly until the final step. What makes Keoni stand out as an excellent attorney is his relationship that he builds and maintains with his clients. I definitely recommend Keoni as your Will and Estate Planning Attorney. He truly cares and keeps your best interest at heart. Mahalo Nui Loa Keoni!"
"Aloha, we found Keoni's law office via a friend who had retained his office previously and had outstanding results. We highly respected this person's opinion so we contacted Keoni and inquired about his services. After the initial email chats, we set up a Zoom call to meet. It went very well! He explained everything in depth and, although I consider myself somewhat legal savvy, I was not too familiar with this field of law. He was able to thoroughly explain every question or concern, in a way that made sense to us. His professional fees, at first, seemed a bit higher than others but, you know the old saying... "you get what you pay for?". Well, it DEFINITELY applied here. Keoni went FAR ABOVE and beyond our expectations and was worth every penny we paid! He knows his stuff! Our will/probate documents were ultimately delivered in an extremely professional organized custom binder, with all of our docs divided by tabs for easy reference. 100% easy breezy! Keoni did not request we upload this review - WE wanted to compose it ourselves to share with all of our aloha friends (yes, you!) who may require these services in the future. Keoni is most definitely your "go to guy" for all of your will/probate needs! Since receiving our wonderfully presented legal docs, I've had to reach out to Keoni with a few additional questions. All of my questions have been addressed, professionally and promptly. True white-glove service all the way! You're truly in good (no great!) hands with Keoni's law office. We highly recommend him! 5 stars for Keoni!"
"This year was the year for me to make sure I had a plan in place for my 2 daughters if anything would happen to me. I messaged Keoni and within 24 hours i was able to schedule a consultation. I’m so glad I did! Keoni was a pleasure to work with. He made this process so easy. His knowledge, expertise, patience, and understanding of Family Planning and his personal story that he shared made my decision super easy to retain him and his firm.He knew exactly what plan I wanted. He did not push one plan over the other. He is very thorough when explaining the different plans.He went over what each plan entailed ( Will vs a Trust). The icing on the cake so to speak was The Legacy Interview that was completed at the ending of the estate planning process. This is the Special Touch that makes him stand apart from any other Family Planning firm/office. The whole process during the COVID 19 pandemic was made so much easier by virtual meetings. We had time to talk and share stories during each meeting. We would go beyond our schedules time and at no time did Keoni cut the meeting off. We had about 3-4 meetings to complete the process and each time Keoni would follow up with an email to remind me what was next and/or in the mail. He was easily available to answer my questions in a Very prompt manner. If you are debating on a Family Planning lawyer, look no further! I am at ease now with the plan in place for my daughters and I. When someone knows and have already experienced what I was worrying about, Keoni’s FIRSTHAND experiences that he shared made me realize I chose the PERFECT fit for my needs. Thank you so much Keoni!!"
"Great service and the online planning option was easy! Thanks!"
"I wanted to create an estate plan and first looked at those “answer the questions and get a will" websites because I wanted the process to be easy and didn’t want to leave my house if I could help it. But I knew those cheap documents was not what I needed. So I was happy to find Keoni and his firm. I used the virtual estate planning option and it was so easy and yes, I didn’t have to leave my house. We met a couple of times online for meetings and when I got my finished plan, it was better than I imagined. If you want to go the online planning route, Keoni and his firm is the way to go. You won’t find better."
"I am so grateful to have found the Law Office of Keoni Souza to set up my estate plan. I had complicated family and business issues that I was sure would be a problem considering I’m in Hawaii and California, but Keoni handled everything with ease and great skill. From start to finish, he made the process so easy. Unlike other lawyers I’ve worked with, Keoni was and continues to be very responsive when I call or email. On top of that, my plan came with extras that I haven’t seen at other law firms that not only add value to me, but add extra protection to my family and assets. It’s clear that Keoni really cares about families and that’s the kind of lawyer I am thankful to have supporting my family and business now and throughout the years. I highly recommend this law firm if you want the best planning for your family and business."
