My partner and I were looking for a law firm to help with our estate planning before our little girl was born. Everyone we crossed paths with at Sowards Law was generous and thoughtful. They were especially patient working with us while we navigated preparing for her arrival. We were thrilled with the final estate planning documentation package we got and recommend their services to anyone.

I worked with Sowards Law Firm to set up an estate plan throughout 2020 and into 2021. Everyone at the firm was extremely proactive, responsive, professional and thoughtful. They took into consideration my unique situation and worked diligently, even through disruptions caused by the pandemic. I would definitely work with Sowards Law Firm again.

I highly recommend the Sowards Law Firm for help in setting up a family trust. Ben and his entire firm are incredibly professional and responsive, but they are also down to earth, and they do a fantastic job of making the entire complicated process much easier to understand.
- Andy Abrams
Krystal and Melissa were both very diligent and extremely helpful with our requests. Even though we were busy or inattentive in the process, they were excellent in hand-holding us throughout and helping us get to the end. This also included going above and beyond during the Shelter-in-place order in which they repeatedly used their personal time to meet us in person to notarize and finish the process.

Very satisfied with Ben & team handling our family trusts. Our situation was pretty complicated so we had to spend a fair amount of time and thought on it. Ben offered several important strategic tips and steered us through the process with ease. He and his team was efficient and responsive.

Benjamin Sowards is a great communicator and clearly explained the options available when it comes to wills, trusts and estate planning. Also, the rest of the staff at Sowards were super friendly and helped move the process forward efficiently and quickly. Although we had to wait nearly one month before the first availability, it was well worth it.

The Sowards Law Firm saved my family from probate. We tried an online legal document company. We thought we were protected, but Ben Sowards was able to point out several errors and mistakes with the documents. Mr. Sowards fixed our documents and helped us to avoid probate. I will continue to recommend their services to my friends and family.
- Ralph H., Milpitas, CA
My husband and I were nervous about meeting with a lawyer. I know they can be expensive. The Sowards Firm was very reasonable and took the time to help us understand what we were signing. Our kids were also happy with their services and are now thinking of hiring Mr. Sowards.
- Carol A., San Jose, CA
Just before my mother died Mr. Sowards came to her home to review her wishes and make her will. He took time to make sure she was happy. I was satisfied with the experience and it was much easier than I expected.
- Bill T., Palo Alto, CA
I’ve known the attorneys at the Sowards law firm for many years. They have helped me buy and sell a couple of businesses. They saved me a lot of money. I continue to call them when I have a complex legal issue or a quick question. They are worth their weight in gold!
- Steve J., San Jose, CA
I am happy that my parents hired the Sowards Law Firm. They helped us through a difficult time and made everything easy to understand. There was no way we ever could have handled things on our own. I really appreciate all that they did for us. They were recommended to my parents by some family friends. It turns out these friends have referred lots of other friends to Mr. Sowards over the years.
- Suzanne M., Morgan Hill, CA
Ben and his staff are wonderful. He spent extra time and effort to give me the best service available. I would recommend very him highly. The only regret I have is that I did not know him a lot earlier. He would have saved me a lot of money and heartache. Thank you Ben for your expertise and legal advice.
- David E., Longview, TX
I highly recommend Sowards Law Firm. Both Ben and his staff are very knowledgeable and thorough. After years of trying to convince my parents to get their estate in order, I finally got them to see Ben. He walked them through the whole process and explained all of their options. They were really happy with the timeliness and results they received. Both my parents and I recommend Sowards Law Firm to our friends and family.
- Carrie N., San Jose, CA
Ben and his staff took all the time we needed to understand our estate planning options. The group as a whole was very efficient and they kept the process streamlined. Ben himself is very approachable and friendly and drew examples for us on his yellow legal pad to explain various concepts. We were very pleased with the results and consider the SOWARDS Law Firm our trusted attorneys.
- Debby B., Los Gatos, CA
Ben and his staff treated me like family. After using him to explain my mother’s living trust to me when she died, closing out my brothers estate when he died, and then closing out my past husband's estate when he died, Then letting Ben and his staff write up a living trust for me and my new husband. I don't think I would let anyone else handle my estates. Thanks Ben and Julie!
- Patricia S., Oakdale, CA
Sowards law firm helped my wife and I put together a trust, all went as planned and they were professional, curious, and all paperwork was completed in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to return for additional legal assistance, and I also recommend their services for anyone looking for excellent legal advice and services within their area of expertise. I give them 2 thumbs up and 5 stars!
- Frank & Karen G., Boulder Creek, CA
Ben was fantastic! He listened carefully to what we wanted in our trusts, asked great questions, explained things in a way we could easily understand, gave us lots of options, advised us on whether to go with one joint or two separate trusts, and gave us all of the pros and cons of each. Ben also went above and beyond the call of duty by talking with my daughter to ensure that he made appropriate provisions for my disabled grandson, and actually did some research on my daughter's options that helped her decide what to do with her own trust as well... and never charged extra for that work! When we went to Ben's office to sign our trusts, he went over everything in plain language and made it a very painless process. Besides the original signed documents, he is providing electronic copies on flash drives, so we can upload them and share them with our children. This was the smoothest and easiest legal process I've ever been through, and I credit Ben as the reason. Besides being very experienced and knowledgeable about estate law, Ben is a very nice person. I enjoyed working with him. If you go to this firm, you won't regret it!
- Cheryl J., Mountain View, CA
Ben Sowards is an all-around great guy, and I highly recommend him. Ben focuses on what matters: the client. Being an ethical, intelligent, family man plays to his strength of caring about satisfaction, and he won't stop until the client gets it.
- Kyle L., Eatonville, WA
Ben is very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend him, I've been referring him for many years.
- Michelle L., San Jose, CA
If you have arguments that don't follow, prepare to be crushed! Benjamin Sowards is always prepared to defend his clients.
- Victoria S., Salt Lake City, UT
Sowards Law Firm was one of several law firms recommended by my financial planner. After reaching out and talking to all of them, we felt that Sowards Law Firm was the best fit for us. They were neither the cheapest, nor the most expensive, but the team is very personable and the prices are very reasonable.
This was my second time doing an Estate Plan and Ben made the process significantly easier and quicker than my previous experience. He walked us through the entire process in the first meeting and answered all of our questions. Ben went out of town in the middle of our process and the transition to his staff was seamless with no hiccups. We completed the whole process in a very quick time compared to my previous experience and with a lot less complications despite having some complicated things in our estate.
I have recommended Sowards Law Firm to others and will continue to do so in the future.
- Chris D., San Jose, CA
My husband & I just updated our living trust with The Sowards firm. It's is always a pleasure to work with nice & professional people. From the front desk to our attorney, everyone is very nice and friendly, which makes the whole process almost stress free! It is in fact a complicated step with many things to discuss and think about but Benjamin & his team are very good and patient at explaining the legality of every step and decision we make.
We knew we were in good hands! Never something we like to think or talk about but now, we can sleep better, knowing that our wishes, concerning our health or our assets, will be followed. It is a family business and we greatly recommend their expertise.
- Rozanne W., San Francisco, CA
My husband and I created a first-time living trust with Sowards Law Firm, and had a really wonderful experience working with Julie Sowards SriRanga. We were initially intimidated by the process, but Julie was very patient and broke down all the technical terms and all the ins and outs of estate planning in a way that we could understand. She is experienced and knowledgable, and gave us solid insight and expertise into the decisions we were making. Because of her guidance, we felt very comfortable with the decisions we were making, knowing that we could return to Sowards at any time to modify our existing plan as needed. Thanks Julie! We really appreciate the help you gave us!
- Emily M., San Francisco Bay Area, CA
Attorney Ben Sowards and his staff have always been prompt and thorough with their assistance. I always walk away feeling confident with their advice. I will continue to rely upon their legal expertise.
- Tina D., San Jose, CA
We were looking to find an attorney to help us with our estate planning a couple of months ago. After contacting Soward's Law Firm, we immediately found the staff to be very knowledgable and helpful. They assisted us with the first steps and informed us about Mr. Soward's free seminars and workshops in Campbell. Unfortunately, we did not find time to attend those seminars but knowing that he runs these workshops proved to us that he specialized in exactly what we were looking for. His staff guided us smoothly through the process. After getting an in depth and fully detailed one hour complimentary consultation with Mr. Soward, we decided to work with his office, and we are so happy with our decision. Mr. Soward's work ethic and attitude was so professional and he was extremely up to date and knowledgable in the field. He generously spent one more hour explaining all the details in our plan of action and did not even charge us an extra fee! We would definitely recommend his firm to anyone.
- Mahtab E. and Mehrdad C., San Jose, CA
Not having much experience with lawyers, Sowards helped my family set up a living trust, answered all of our questions in a way that we could understand and helped come up with the best option for our family!!
- Jon O., Campbell, CA
Mr. Sowards was extremely helpful in setting up a Trust which was a bit complicated. Because of his care and expertise, he saved our family much grief. Since setting up the Trust, when I've had any questions or issues I needed help with, he promptly got back to me with what I needed.
As an out of state resident, Mr. Sowards treated our case professionally and efficiently. Very happy with his services and results.
My company hired Ben to create a contractual agreement, which he did promptly and at a great value. Ben was great to work with and was responsive to all of our needs. Highly recommended.
