Wills and Estate Planning
Took my Dad and I through the process of writing a will and Power of Attorney. Highly recommend him.Oct 22, 2018Verified
Mike has a nice approach to estate planning. He sent me a detailed questionnaire that I filled out before we talked about any details. This let me take my time and think about things on my own first and consider some things I had not thought of. He’s personable, knowledgeable and doesn’t judge but does suggest options and has good ideas. His hours are very flexible if you need them to be, although most of my estate plan was easily handled in email or on the phone. Rates were very reasonable when compared to what other attorneys quote for the same work. All in all a very good experience and an important “to do” item that I had been putting off is done.Mar 18, 2019Verified
Mike provides thorough assistance at a very reasonable price. He does not charge for phone calls or emails or regular mail, and is always eager to spend more time to help people understand what is being done. He goes out of his way for his clients, something extraordinary in his profession. His bills are transparent from the start. There are no hidden charges or surprises. It was a pleasure dealing with him. Mike makes doing wills and trusts and POA documents an absolute breeze. My wife and I thoroughly recommend him and will be happy to do business with him in the future.Jul 31, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing is very dependent on your particular issue. The rates that I state here are for guidance purposes only. Once we are able to meet for a no-cost / no-obligation 30 minute consultation, if we agree that it makes sense to move forward, I will quote a price for the services that we agree on.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?New clients are invited to meet with me for a no-cost / no-obligation 30 minute consultation. Here we will discuss your legal matter and what your desired outcome is. This meeting can be in-person or by telephone, whichever is most convenient for you. From that meeting, if we decide to move forward, we will agree on next steps and the fees that will be charged for legal services.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and a Master's Degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. I received my Juris Doctor from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. I also hold a certificate in family and divorce mediation. I have extensive corporate experience working with both internal and external clients in negotiation, deal making and dispute management. Here I have gained the invaluable skill of understanding the importance of listening and understanding the needs of all parties involved before determining the best final solution to a particular problem.
