We first found out about Manya when she was speaking at an event for ex-pat Canadians residing in California. Her knowledge of U.S./Canadian estate planning issues was evident. Although we currently live and work in the U.S., most of our family still resides in Canada. Manya made sure we structured our plan to avoid any future tax issues, while ensuring our estate would pass to our family members in Canada. We live in Northern California. Ms. Natan and her team made the process of working remotely seamless and easy. We would highly recommend Manya and her team for anyone in need of estate planning. Thank you!
I was referred to Ms. Manya Deva Natan by my banker “Bank of the West”. It is my pleasure to post this testimonial and I wish I could post 5 stars PLUS. Ms Manya was very professional and so was her assistant Jean. All my E-Mails, phone calls, and messages were returned within minutes (a special treat these days!!!). I will be happy to recommend Ms. Natan anytime should I need some help in the future.
Thank you Manya Deva Natan, Esq. and everyone at SSS Legal and Consultancy Services, APC.

Ms. Natan and her team were highly responsive and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her services for anyone in need of estate planning and international expertise.

We had been planning to do a restatement of our trust during the summer months, when, at the start of the year, one of us learned we needed to go in for surgery. This seemed to leave us with no choice but to do a quick amendment and postpone the full restatement until later. This patchwork approach would have meant a duplication of effort and a significant waste of time in the long run. In order to avoid this, our financial advisor approached Ms. Natan and her team at SSS Legal and Consultancy Services, APC, presented our situation to her, and asked if she could help. Ms. Natan rose to the challenge beautifully, completing a full restatement and finishing the job a week before the scheduled surgery date. And she did all this without in any way compromising quality. In fact, she was able significantly to untangle and simplify the rather complex internal logic of the earlier trust and make the new one a much more accurate reflection of our current outlook and needs. Throughout the project, Ms. Natan was focused, attentive, painstakingly thorough, and yet easy to work with.
