My uncle had passed away in 2017 without a will, leaving his estate to be split between the next of kin, one of which being myself, however things were a bit complicated. I had hired an attorney and after almost 3 years had gotten nowhere. I began doing research and found Ken and am so grateful that I did. In less than 4 months the estate was settled. If you need an attorney that is going to step up and get the job done then Ken is your man! He truly has his clients best interests at heart and does not just sit back and wait to see what happens, he makes things happen. My only regret is that I didn’t find him 3 years ago!!

Ken and Bryan were professional, attentive, thorough, and knowledgeable. They were on top of what was going on with communications and information related to my case. I felt comfort and reassurance in their guidance and handling of my case and they had the expertise of the matter and they helped me understand what to expect and how the legal process would go in a very uneasy time. I would definitely recommend their services.

An Estate and Trust Litigation Client:
My family and I selected Simeone & Raynor to represent us during a very difficult and emotional time. The highly professional attorneys and staff at Simeone & Raynor worked with us through a two-year long process, coaching and reassuring us every step of the way. Ken Raynor and Bryan Eggert were honest, forthcoming, reliable and genuinely cared about the outcome of our case. My family and I hope we never have to go through the emotional turmoil and stressful situation again, but if we did, we would most definitely turn to the team at Simeone & Raynor.

I highly recommend Kenneth E. Raynor and his associates who are extremely professional, completely honest and trustworthy. Most importantly they BELIEVED in me and my situation, I didn’t feel as if I was treated like a client, I felt more as a friend. I highly recommend using them.

We have been thoroughly delighted with the process you applied for developing our wills and trust arrangement. It was far more than just drafting a set of documents. You educated us, posed scenarios to consider, helped us weigh various approaches and then drafted the needed documents— redrafting and rewording until each met our unique needs precisely. You took the time to understand us and patiently enabled us to reach each decision. In addition, the fee arrangement was reasonable and represented considerable value and insights for our investment. Thank you and we look forward to a continuing relationship!

I want to thank you for your recent representation of me in our family Trust matter. Living in Florida made me a little hesitant in choosing a law firm to represent my interests in the State of New Jersey, however the way your firm made my family and I feel that we were a priority to you and the way you were able to rapidly ascertain our situation and protect our interests means so much to us. I cannot thank you enough for being able to handle our situation as if we were in the State of New Jersey and not Florida. Your assistance has been much appreciated, and I would recommend your firm to anyone who was seeking a trust and estates attorney.

I retained the services of Simeone & Raynor to represent me in a difficult family lawsuit I had to file against my own sister. It was an inheritance case, so emotions ran high. Ken Raynor and Bryan Eggert were the attorneys that represented me. Both Ken and Bryan made me feel comfortable from the start. They showed that they had the knowledge and experience with cases like mine, where critical thinking is often replaced by emotion and impulse. They were always available to email and speak with me regarding my case, where Bryan would often be working on my file on the weekends. They both treated me with kindness and respect, showing sympathy and a willingness to listen to my concerns. I never felt that their actions were in any way just to “make a buck”. They were aware of my financial situation, and I always felt comfortable that they were working in my best interest. Both Ken and Bryan never painted me a “rosy picture”, but were realistic with my expectations of the outcome of the case. I felt the staff at their law firm were equally efficient and timely with any billing and other correspondence regarding my case. In the unfortunate event where I would again need Council, I would not hesitate to seek them out and utilize their services. I would recommend Simeone & Raynor to friends, co-workers, or even strangers. Thank you Ken, Bryan, and staff!
After my divorce, I decided it was time to get my estate planning in order and received a recommendation to Ken Raynor. In my first meeting with Ken he educated me on all the nuances to consider regarding my estate. I didn’t realize the complexities and Ken took the time to clearly explain all the options so that I could make the right informed decisions. Throughout the process, Ken guided me and is clearly well versed in the legal and tax related implications of each decision. I especially appreciated Ken’s view that these documents and decisions will change over time as my needs evolve. Unlike other attorneys I’ve worked with who charge for every call or email, Ken’s approach empowers me to ask him questions and tap his expertise now and in the future.
I would highly recommend Ken and look forward to a long lasting relationship with him.
I have had the pleasure of working with Simone and Raynor over the past six years. Ken Raynor handled two of my cases with professionalism, accuracy and empathy. During each case which was due to an Estate matter, Ken Raynor always presented me with options, which as a client I truly appreciated.
When it came to the passing of my Mother in 2013, both Ken Raynor and Dominic Simeone handled my Estate issues from beginning to the end. Dominic was able to negotiate and deal with outside counsel for me with regard to the selling on my Mother’s property.
I would highly recommend Simeone and Raynor to any family member, friend or stranger. What they did for my siblings and I in what you could call the hardest time in our lives was second to none. We were grieving the loss of our father and getting sued for his estate by someone we thought we loved and trusted. Our first meeting was with Dominic Simeone and after meeting with a handful of lawyers, my brother and I knew this was the one. He would fight for us, he would not unfairly bill us and he genuinely felt sorry for us. A few weeks in, we began meeting with Ken Raynor. We had stumbled upon 2 amazing lawyers who were not scared to fight for us. Ken Raynor got us through this hell we were in and we came on top, only paying our fees for him. Worst case scenario, we could have been out of a house and our very little inheritance. Ken showed confidence in the court room and stood up for us like no other. Everything we hoped he would say he did plus more. Their team has gone above and beyond, always a phone call or email away and always on top of everything. They are now assisting us in closing the estate the right way so this could never happen again. Dominic and Ken, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
