I specialize in probate & trust real estate and have sold over 500 estates, consequently, I deal with many trust and estate attorneys. Gerald is a trust & estate attorney that truly stands out. Gerald and his team at the Law Offices of Gerald L. Kane provide excellent advice for resolving difficult and complex issues.We had an estate that had an out of state administrator. Gerald went above and beyond to make certain the deal stayed on track to a successful close of escrow. We are happy to give Gerald Kane our highest recommendation.Paul HargravesFounder, Trust Properties USA More...
Attorney Kane handled my mother's trust. It was a pleasure working with him. He and the entire office staff are very professional, knowledgeable, and patient. I was given detailed instructions on what was needed in order to establish the trust. When my mother and I met with Attorney Kane, he took the time to answer all of our questions. After the initial meeting with Attorney Kane, I worked with Hasmik Stepanyan. Hasmik was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with as well. There were many things I did not understand when I started gathering the items for the trust so I contacted Hasmik several times. She never made me feel like I was imposing on her time. Hasmik was good about breaking down a complex answer in a way I could understand. What sets this firm apart is that they treat you like a person and not a number. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Gerald L. Kane. More...
To whom it may concern,Gerald L. Kane and Associates in my opinion is the best Trust Law Firm in the San Fernando Valley. I would highly recommend them to my family and friends. Robert A. Beverly
I highly recommend Gerald Kane and his staff. I can't imagine working through an elder care plan and applying for VA benefits without them. They made a complex process painless and easy and cut through the red tape that my father would have faced had he attempted to apply for his VA benefits on his own. Gerry is very knowledgeable and works very efficiently and his staff are so helpful and really cared about my father's situation and welfare. More...
We couldn't be happier with Mr. Kane and his staff. He did a great job preparing our trust and explaining everything along the way. We were on a tight timeline, as we were heading out of the country, and wanted everything in place "just in case". He and his staff bent over backwards to get everything done, signed and notarized for peace of mind before our trip. More...
Gerald Kane, and staff did our trust for us.Extremely professional from beginning to end. Can not give a high enough rating for service, and professionalism. They even have a welcome sign for you when you arrive. They are extremely thorough, and answered all of our questions. This was a difficult task, and they handled it great. We just want other people to know what a fantastic service they provide, thank you very much to Gerald Kane and staff. More...
Gerry and Hasmik know exactly what they are doing and they know how to expedite the difficult process of obtaining Veterans Benefits. There are always pitfalls and circumstances that the average person cannot avoid so we are thrilled that we let “The Law Offices of Gerald L. Kane” handle this process. It was a fast and pleasant experience. Thank you so much! More...

I am so grateful to Gerry and his amazing staff, Hasmik, Christina and Djoanna! They walked my father through the steps to get his VA benefits - he's a 90 year old veteran of WWII - and it has made his life exponentially easier. They are warm, efficient, caring and effective. I would recommend their services most highly to anyone! More...
Hired Gerald after speaking with other attorneys re: my brothers ability to collect V.A. benefits. From start to finish he and his staff were on top of everything. Would definitely hire them again for another trust.Thanks. More...
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Gerry Kane on revising our wills. We found not only him but his entire staff to be true professionals. They spent a lot of time with us answering our questions, emailing drafts, and making corrections even while we were there. We were pleased to learn of additional services he offered. Things that we had never even considered, like the Legacy videos. He answered all of our questions, and thoroughly explained everything. The finished product was an entire folder full of information that someday our children will need to deal with. Everything is well indexed. I know Gerry also deals with elder care issues, and have already referred a friend to him for a consult. I trust that he knows the law, most importantly. It is without reservation that I highly recommend Gerald Kane & Associates. More...
