Simmons & Schiavo, LLP and Marco, specifically, have handled estate planning matters for several of my family members. I cannot say enough positive things about him. He is detail oriented, meticulous and down to earth. He takes the time to explain complex matters in a way that is easy to understand and is so patient when fielding the endless questions that come with complex estate planning matters. During the course of planning I felt Marco honestly wanted to help my family and make sure that everyone was comfortable with their decisions. I would, and have, recommended Marco to anyone looking for estate planning assistance.
Marco helped us with the purchase of our second home. He walked us through the process and all of the documents clearly and in a way where there was very little follow up required. When we did have a couple of clarifying questions, Marco was very responsive and answered all of inquiries very thoroughly. I would absolutely use Marco again and wouldn't hesitate to refer others to him for all of their real estate law needs.
I have recently worked with Marco on Estate Planning matters and found him to be very professional, knowledgeable and thorough. Estate planning can be very complicated and confusing, but Marco has been able to reduce things down to understandable terms so that I know what to do to preserve and manage my mother’s financial affairs. He presented us with all options available so we could assess and weigh our options and move in the right direction. Marco has a calm and assuring demeanor that makes you feel comfortable. The presentation of the final materials speak volumes to the level of attention to detail that Marco puts into his work. My mother says he is “the man who knows everything!” As soon as we my Mom's estate planning is completed I plan to hire Marco again to do a estate planning for me.
Attorney Marco was a pleasure to work with. He is very professional, meticulous and explains things very clearly. He was able to provide us with seasoned advice so we could make informed decisions. We would definitely be looking to working with him in the future as well.
We decided to take on a tricky Short Sale situation for our first home, and he handled the situation with flying colors, working out all the difficult details and helping us through the process. We couldn't be happier with the end result, thanks in large part to Mr. Schiavo's expertise to handle all the bumps in the road. He noticed a small issue with the title that, if gone unnoticed, could have adversely affected us down the road. We would definitely recommend him to other folks looking for a real estate attorney, short sale or otherwise.
It has been my pleasure to hire Marco on several occasions for real estate transactions, creation of a living will and estate planning. He is professional, trustworthy, responsive and knowledgeable. I highly recommend his services.
Marco prepared legal documents for my wife and I. He set up our wills, healthcare proxies, a trust, and power of attorneys. Being unfamiliar with legal documents he made recommendations on what I should have drawn up and answered all of my questions along the way without making me feel silly for asking them. He was very informative, professional, had reasonable rates and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.
Marco Schiavo is a fabulous attorney. He is very responsive to clients and realtors alike. I use his services mostly for real estate transactions for seller or buyer representation, as well as title services as a closing attorney. He and his firm are also experienced short sale negotiators, and Simmons & Schiavo is always the company I choose and recommend to assist me and my clients with short sale transactions. It is my understanding that he and his firm also handleS evictions, bankruptcy and estate planning but I know them best from prior real estate dealings since I am a very satisfied realtor! Marco also speaks Italian and Spanish!
Marco is an outstanding attorney who I have worked with on many occasions. He is very knowledgeable and has been a help on many occasions with our clients whether they are doing a regular sale of their home or if they are doing a short sale. His knowledge of the short sale process is excellent and our clients are very happy with their outcome. He is easy to reach and responds promptly with answers to any questions that we ask.
My family has also used Marco for family matters including wills, POA's, living wills, etc.
I would recommend Marco and his firm to anyone looking to Buy or Sell a property or for legal family matters.
Marco helped me tremendously with the purchase of my home. He answered all of my calls and returned my messages promptly. I have referred a number of my friends to Simmons & Schiavo and would recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional and courteous attorney.
