Dear Dana Law Firm Staff,

We want to thank you for the excellent service we received from all of you. This was a very important step for us and you made it very easy! Now we have that great peace of mind knowing that our children’s inheritance will be managed by a  family member of our choice. We are very happy with our experience and will be sure to recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you again.

Dear Attorney Dana:

I recently chose your law firm to do estate planning on my behalf. This included a Last Will and Testament, Health Care Power of Attorney, Durable Power of Attorney, Trust and Certificate of Trust.

I am writing to tell you that I was very impressed with your Firm. Attorney Scott Jensen was very knowledgeable, personable and down to earth. He explained things in a way that a lay person could understand. The paralegal was very efficient and organized as well. The whole process was completed in three weeks. The binder that you sent me is impressive and the price you charged for your services was fair.

I didn’t know anything about your Firm prior to making an appointment. I saw your advertisement in the Arizona Republic and decided to give you a try. You exceeded my expectations.

If I need any legal work in the future I will certainly contact your office again and I will refer you to any friends who are seeking estate planning legal services.

Very truly yours,

A.R.P – Mesa, Arizona


Dear Mr. Dana,

I wanted to take a minute to let you know how superb the service is that we are receiving from bankruptcy attorney Ms. Whitney Coats.  From the day we walked into your offices, we felt respected, valued and welcomed. Whitney went out of her way to make sure that we understood every phase of our case. She even directed us in keeping our legal plan and set up estate planning with your associates for us. She spent hours making sure that every I was dotted and every t was crossed even on her weekends and late hours when I would email her with concerns.

We always knew that we are in good hands. Nothing was more apparent to us than the day that we went to our bankruptcy meeting and listened to how another firm’s attorney interacted with her 6 clients! We sat there amazed that she didn’t know if their paperwork was complete when it was sent to the court. It was obvious that her clients did not know what was happening. They were asking the simplest questions. When she asked them if they completed their first classes, I wanted to yell, “Change firms to Dana Law Firm!” The attorney was a full of nervous energy making even us uncomfortable and edgy.

Whitney walked in at this point, calm, confident and friendly. The stress of the hearing melted at that point. She took the time to let us know once again what to expect both before and after the hearing. As we walked out the door with her, we knew that she has helped us move forward to a new life. We thanked her and she just said, “I am just doing my job.” Not so! Anyone can “do the job.” It takes a special person to do the job in such a caring and intelligent manner!

We have and will continue to tell anyone we meet about your Arizona Estate Planning firm, and especially, Whitney Coats!


I can’t tell you how happy I am working with Trevor. To have my estate in order if something should happen to me is a great feeling. Now all we need to do is make some charitable gift choices.

Dana Law Firm,

Thank you so much for your assistants with the creation of our Arizona Estate Plan. My husband and I feel at peace knowing that our children will be well taken care of in the event of our sudden demise. Your staff made this entire process extremely easy. We cannot thank you enough!

THANK YOU  for sharing this article and making me feel part of the Dana family.  Our experience with your firm, dealing with Kate, who was ALWAYS prompt in reply’s and communications, Todd Smith, who was so understanding of our situation and concerns, and willing to hear what our goals were, made what was expected to be an ordeal, turn into something good and fulfilling.

Your firm is one I would recommend to anyone looking to upgrade or just establish some sort of Trust Agreement.

I am honored to be a client.


Dana Law Firm,

We cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind we feel after visiting your office. We had been procrastinating updating our documents for some time. Thank you for making the process so simple! We really appreciate the time you took to explain our documents to us. We finally have an understanding of our estate planning documents and how things will operate after our deaths. Working with your firm was a pleasure.

Whitney, there never seems a day goes by that your not in our thoughts as to what has been accomplished this year. We feel very fortunate to have engaged your services.

Our relationship with you both professionally and personally has been a very positive experience. The very first day we met, with our hearts and minds racing, will never be forgotten. The way you personally came across to us was so positive that we to took on a positive attitude for our future.

There is a saying that I carry with me at all times as a reminder to me states “A life is not important except for the affect it has on another life”. Whitney, you’ve accomplished that importance with us and we thank you over and over from the bottom of our hearts.

In closing, again we thank you and wish you a very Happy Holiday Season.

We want you to know how much we appreciate your kindness in donating the time and effort of your staff to make a Will available for veterans. It is something we have not been able to afford and we sincerely thank you.

God bless you and may the year ahead be a special one for the Dana Law Firm!

I want to let you know how pleased I am with Todd Smith handling our Trust after my husband passed away in August.

I really wasn’t sure what to expect but Mr. Smith made the whole experience very understandable. I felt I was “in good hands” with his professionalism and real concern that everything be done right. He was polite and courteous at all times and I certainly appreciated his patience with me.

When it came to restructuring some of the documents for me, he was certainly on target and I have full confidence everything is exactly as I want it to be.

I would also like to express my appreciation for the help Jennifer Skubic game me when I had my many questions. She, too, was a real pleasure to work with.

Many thanks to you and your associates for helping me so much. When Thomas Flynn retired, I am certainly glad he recommended I go to Dana Law Firm.

I am writing as a client, my brother and I recently went through a pre probate estate of a small sum , but were very impressed by the honesty and commitment of Mr. Mark Andersen and Sam. We are very grateful for your wonderful law firm. Some times you become a little jaded in this society and you always here be careful to trust lawyers. Well after working with your firm I feel you should be put on a pedestal for your great work. You deserve to be recognized in the Phx magazine and my husband works at the Prescott Lakes Country Club and we are proud to inform members of your services and trust they can have with a firm such as yours.

Dear Dana Law Firm,

Thank you so much for your help and assistance in creating our Estate Plan. My wife and I were so reluctant to start this process because to be honest, we just didn’t want to think about planning for our demise. Working with your firm was so easy and your staff was able to make difficult planning painless. We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and appreciate the time you took.

“Regarding a Will Contest that was recently settled”

I just wanted to take the time and tell you how much it means to me and my family that your law firm, along with Fennamore Craig, worked so hard, and helped justice to be served. Not a lot of people would have taken the time you gentleman did to make a wrong a right. I just really wanted to thank you, and let you know that my family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

Dear Matt,

Thank you very much for your work on behalf of my parents’ estate. It appears you have an excellent team. You seem to have untangled a lot complication, and hopefully records will be more straight forward from here on.

Matthew Dana has the knowlege, patience, and communication skills needed to explain complex estate planning concepts and methods to his clients. I am confident that his advice is sound because his understanding of my situation is thorough and his recommendations are carefully and logically presented – a rarity, all too often, in this specialized, technical field.”

Matt L. of Sedona, Arizona


Matt Dana and I became acquainted almost fifteen years ago through his Estate Planning service. Since then our professional relationship has broadened to the extent that I now absolutely rely on Matt for advice and counsel on a wide variety of issues. He has consistently demonstrated a profound intelligence, a quick understanding of situation dynamics, and a solid maturity; but most of all he has been blessed with an extraordinary amount of Western style common sense. Matt certainly made the right career choice; he is very good at what he does. He has saved my family many thousands of dollars and guided us around many potential problems with his financial advice and legal skills. His office staff is knowledgeable and comprehensive, the Dana Law Firm is a great team.

Carl Z. of Sedona, Arizona


My wife and I have been most impressed and pleased with the estate planning advice provided by Matt Dana. He was able to explain our options patiently, clearly and effectively despite a rather complex and confusing estate tax code. We found Matt’s relaxed and friendly manner most gratifying. We also benefited from the other resources available in his practice.

Based on his advice, we have completely revised our trusts and estate plan and feel confident that we have made decisions in the best interest of our family.

Dana and Associates revised our wills and trusts approximately three years ago. They also developed several limited liability corporations for my wife and me. Their work was professionally performed and all questions were promptly answered. I would recommend their firm enthusiastically.
