Our story begins over 20 years ago when we asked our longtime CPA to recommend a good trust attorney.
Shortly thereafter, my late mother and I met Eugene Tomine in his office to discuss her possible needs. Our take from this first meeting was that he could not possibly be an attorney as he was much too gentle, soft spoken and actually looked you in your eyes when he spoke to you... a real human being with an awesome "bedside manner"
We were so impressed with Mr. Tomine's presentation and demeanor, that we became clients immediately, and so began my twenty year plus relationship with Eugene Tomine.
To me, the acid test of this relationship would be how well would our trust stand up against attack. Sometime after my mother's passing in 2007, our trust and it's trustee had the misfortune by being attacked by some misguided family members. Eugene Tomine represented us solidly through out this ordeal, up until we required a litigator to defend us in Superior Court.
At the end of the day, some three years later, a trial was avoided and we (and our trust) prevailed in a marathon mediation session in 2011.
A couple years ago, Eugene's son Derrek, also an attorney, joined him. We have had the pleasure of working with Derrek on numerous other projects and are more than satisfied with his quality work and warm friendly personality.
In summary, I find Eugene and Derrek Tomine to be the most honest and ethical persons I have ever worked with would strongly recommend their professional services to anyone needing a trust etc.
