We were so fortunate...

After moving to the St. George area, my wife and I decided to establish a trust, update our wills, etc. From the Seniors Center we had a brief interview with a local law firm but they never returned our several calls so we sought another firm. We were referred to Daren Barney of Barney, McKenna & Olmstead. We were so fortunate to get that referral. Daren and his staff were so professional and efficient in handling our needs and following up with all of the details. We 100% recommend Daren and all of the attorneys and support staff at Barney, McKenna & Olmstead.

Jeff and his staff went above and beyond to get us in a few days early

Jeff and his staff went above and beyond to get us in a few days early due to us already in town. So much appreciated. Jeff did our will six years ago and we knew we would be going back to Jeff for our update. Jeff stays updated with all the changes in estate planning that seems to happen regularly. After he found out we were both veterans he gave us a copy of his book "Saving Dr. Warren..." and my husband has loved reading this book well into the morning hours!

Everyone was polite and courteous

We initiated the process of establishing a family trust. The experience was great. Our attorney, Daren R. Barney, explained every step in detail. He answered every question thoroughly and provided insight has to how future events could impact our trust. Paralegal Charlotte Meinkey was very helpful and professional. She also was very forthcoming with any information request. Everyone was polite and courteous.

Wow! Just wow

Wow! Just wow. Jeff McKenna and Ron Hill are excellent lawyers. They gave me solid advice and practical guidance on an estate matter where a divorce decree from years earlier clashed with a family trust set up recently by the decedent. They kept the case from going into litigation and were able to convince the opposing party to enter into mediation. And then they helped steer the mediation to a successful conclusion. Their efforts got me most of what I wanted and saved me considerable heartache and annoyance. The non-attorney staff of BMO, Ricki Stephens in particular, was also fantastic. Thanks to everyone at BMO for helping me achieve my goal, which was to honor my mother's wishes and ensure my father's obligations were met. It would not have happened without all of you. I am happy and confident in recommending BMO to anyone with estate questions or problems. I truly believe they will focus their efforts on doing what's best for you and not for themselves, and helping you achieve your goals.

His fees are fair and his staff are very knowledgeable

I have used the firm of Barney McKenna & Olmstead PC for quite some time now. More specifically, Jeff McKenna has been our guide through all of our legal transactions. He has been so easy to work with; he listens and records your thoughts and does so quickly and consistently. His fees are fair and his staff are very knowledgeable and polite. If you need a competent attorney, this is the place where you will find them. Thanks so much, Jeff!

We highly recommend

It was a pleasure working with Barney McKenna & Olmstead. Our situation was a difficult one and there was no telling what the outcome would be. Eric Olmstead is knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. Not only does he provide his input, but he wants and often incorporates input from the client. This means our due diligence to help resolve our situation was welcomed. Going to mediation was stressful but Eric prepped us and then worked extremely well with the Mediator. Again he welcomed our participation directly with the Mediator and provide excellent feedback to us when the Mediator was not in the chat room. While determined to drive the 8 hours to participate in person, Eric suggested the value of virtual participation. This worked out extremely well and precluded a long round trip. Ultimately because of Eric's participation, our real estate issues were resolved in a fair manner and for the most part, were a win-win for both parties which we didn't think was feasible under the circumstances. Also, Ricki Stephens was extremely helpful as the Paralegal guiding us through the process of providing input to Eric along the way. We highly recommend Barney McKenna & Olmstead particularly for residential real estate issues.

Our sincere gratitude

We were greeted and treated by a very friendly staff. Just a short wait later, Our Estate Lawyer Ron Hill escorted us back to a conference room. Mr. Hill presented a Will and Trust portfolio, that not only answered all of our questions, he brought up points that we had never even thought of, nor would we have, without his knowledge and expertise.

Our sincere gratitude for Mr. Hill, for giving us peace in knowing our Estate planning was complete.

We gave this firm a five Star rating, and if it were possible, we would give Mr. Hill 10 Stars. Thank you all so much. Gary and Maureen K.

We are incredibly grateful...

We had been delaying getting our will and trust set up for years. We both felt uncomfortable not knowing or understanding the process and were a little intimidated. From the moment we called to set up the appointment all are fears were put to rest. The best way to describe our experience is we were and are overjoyed. We expected expertise and professionalism what we didn’t expect was the kindness, compassion, hospitality, humility and humor we received from Jeff and his entire staff. We are incredibly grateful for the relief and peace we have now knowing our affairs are in order.

We highly recommend Barney McKenna & Olmsted!!

This firm is wonderful and very caring

When we moved to St. George area in 1964, we knew we have to update our trust to Utah Laws. We found this law firm and made an appointment. Jeffrey McKenna handled every thing and did a fantastic job.

In 2018 my husband passed away, I did not know the trust needed updated again. I assumed all was well, but found out the end of last year I was quite wrong. I called Mr. McKenna and made an appointment. He updated everything and now I am completely up to date on everything. This firm is wonderful and very caring. If you want excellent service do call them.
