Without reservation, I recommend David I. Karp and his highly efficient and pleasant staff for all aspects of estate planning, medical directives, living wills, etc.
His encyclopedic knowledge of estate planning, coupled with his ability to put me at ease, made the whole process actually comfortable. He and his very simpática, capable paralegal, Merideth Bliss, were wonderfully thorough and extremely patient with every one of my questions about and requests to examine - even edit - all the documents. At no point in the entire process did they evince any signs that I was putting a burden on them. In sum: I’m very glad to have found Dave Karp and his team; I highly recommend them to anyone in search of an estate attorney.-Kimberly
Our financial advisor recommended that we revise our trust. He also recommended David Karp.
We found David to be very knowledgeable in the laws of our state and in the various estate planning documents we needed. We felt very comfortable sharing the details of our unique family and of our family needs.
Although we had a trust and we felt it was adequate, we soon discovered that we were not prepared. David and his staff helped us get our affairs in order. We now feel we are prepared for whatever happens. -Gayle M. Nelson
As might be the case with other clients, my husband and I were long overdue to establish a trust, living will, medical directives, etc. Mr. Karp made us feel comfortable from the start and was great about explaining all the details in layman’s terms.
His greatest asset is his assistant, Meredith, who has been helpful in helping me with subsequent details in “funding” the trust.
Great experience overall! I have recommended him to others. -Mary Ganapol
My wife and I found David to be a good communicator, yet not a hard sell type relative to the services he offered. He worked within the boundaries that we defined for him after he had made us aware of new facets and concerns of wills and trusts.
- Evaluated an existing trust in context of local, current laws relative to trusts.
- Advised us on rewording our IRA Beneficiary Statements, focusing them
- Wrote a new will for us.
We would recommend him for family wills/trusts.

After we moved to Tucson, to be closer to our daughter and only Grand, we decided we needed to get a Trust in order, to make it easier for us and for our two children, when that time came. I do computer work for our Tucson Real Estate agent, and when asked for a referral, she sent us David.
We found David and his staff to be very professional in every aspect of getting the Trust set up. We had never done anything like this in our 36 years of marriage and we were both quite apprehensive and not sure what we needed to do. David made us feel right at home, and helped us make the right decisions for each area of the Trust.
We now rest easy, knowing that when the time comes, it will be much easier for our two children, who will have David directing them on Trust issues. -Laurel Wadley
It is easy to come up with terms describing David Karp and his staff. The minute my wife and I walked into his office, we felt a sense of rapport that has persisted to this day.
In our first meeting, it soon became obvious that there was more to estate planning than we expected, but it also was obvious David had the material so well organized and framed in terms we could deal with that on the few occasions a legal term or concept needed to be re-explained, no problem, David has the patience of Job.
We didn't realize until after that meeting how well he had prepared us by driving home the benefits of having a trust over a will. It helped in understanding the importance of the information we needed to provide. This part of the process caused us to face some difficult and tender issues which, thanks to David, were handled extremely well.
The last scheduled meeting was designed to introduce the beneficiary, our daughter, to the broad outlines of the trust, how David could help her when needed, and to answer any questions that came up now or in the future. We felt David handled that meeting brilliantly.
And finally, our experience with David Karp would not be complete without mentioning Merideth, his legal assistant. She too was an integral part of the team and was the soul of cheerful patience when helping us.
We are satisfied that, thanks to David’s guidance in creating this trust, we have done the right thing for ourselves and also for our daughter. -Oscar and Bleue Speed
I find David Karp, Attorney to be very empathetic to elder care issue and the emotional and demanding requirements posed to the families that are doing their best to support aging parents and their difficulties in navigating situations that “lay” people” need help with. He is excellent at explaining all the “legalese” simply and is attentive to answering all my questions.
He has an “excellent bedside manner” (so to speak). His rates are reasonably competitive and I am enrolled in his “client care program” which I recommend to any new client.-Mardi M. Forman
I am writing on behalf of David Karp who I engaged as an estate attorney for myself after some difficult family circumstances.
I found David to be incredibly thorough, precise and exquisitely attentive to all aspects of my particular family circumstances and was completely pleased with the results of his meticulous attention to detail and ability to explain it to me in a way that I could understand.
He never was condescending and was always willing and able to answer all my questions even well after the task of creating my family trust was complete.
His documentation is encyclopedic in its scope and I was thoroughly pleased with his work.
I found him to be warm and endearing as a human being and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone as an excellent estate, trust, and wills attorney.
I loved his warmth and personal style and found him totally endearing. -Dr. Marilyn Orenstein
David is honest and enthusiastic about his work. His thorough knowledge is also impressive. My wife and I enjoyed the time we spent with David and we also believe that the estate products we received were high quality products that were completed on time.
Combine all of the above with David’s strong work ethic and fair pricing and you have an excellent practice offering affordable, quality products.
I was referred to David Karp by my accountant. I found him to be knowledgeable and very helpful in working with me to develop and establish my estate plan. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney in that area. -Joan W.
I worked with David Karp to plan my will and medical directives. I enjoyed working with David and his assistant Merideth. I found David to be a detailed and caring advocate and advisor. He has a high level of integrity and did a very thorough job. He asked questions and thought of possible issues I never would have thought of. His office was great about follow up and he and Merideth, both, offered excellent client service.
I will continue and already have referred David and his services to my friends and family. -Alexis Spencer
My wife and I had an amazing and wonderful experience while dealing with both David, and his assistant Meredith. They both worked together with us to make the entire “Trust Creation” process as smooth, painless and efficient as possible. All of our questions and concerns were answered in a clear and concise way, and we were made to feel totally comfortable throughout. I have already recommended David’s services to several of my friends, and plan to continue to do so. -Michael Hawkins
Intelligent. Knowledgeable. Diligent. Thoughtful. Thorough. Honest. Ethical. Based upon my experience in having been represented and advised by Mr. Karp in a relatively difficult and complex case, these are the adjectives I would use to describe him; and, based upon this experience, I would recommend him to anyone seeking counsel within his field of expertise. -G.S.
It was a pleasure using the legal services of Mr. Karp. He was almost always immediately available for any questions I had and if he was not available right away he promptly got back to me with a response. He was not only knowledgeable and professional, but kind and patient with a client who had many questions and concerns. I would not hesitate to use his services again or to recommend his services to family and friends. -Hope K.
In all my dealings with David I found him not only knowledgeable, but meticulous and responsive, answering questions thoughtfully - and patiently - whenever contacted by me. Moreover, he dealt with the estate issue handled on my family's behalf with great sensitivity and insight. There was no time in our dealings, and most particularly at the conclusion of the matter he handled for us, that I didn't fully appreciate what a fine attorney he is. I recommend him and his practice as an estate planning attorney unequivocally. -P.T.
