I would enthusiastically recommend Smilie! I was very pleased with the estate planning services provided which included my will, healthcare directive, trusts etc... Smilie really listened to my unique situation / estate planning wishes and designed a comprehensive plan for me.
Smilie Rogers provided an on-line interview that streamlined the work, saving time & money. He educated me about my need for a process rather than a static document. With his wife, Mary Brennan an elder care attorney, he showed me and my wife the advantages of remaining flexible within a framework that guaranteed our needs would be met. My only concern is that he seems to shortchange himself in his billing! By my records he didn't bill for 2 hours of work.
We can't recommend Smilie enough. We were very busy during the time we were working with him but Smilie was patient with our delays and followed up when we were ready. Smilie is a great find.
Smilie is a balance of eagerness and grounded in his desire to be of service to my husband and I in our Estate Planning. On a personal venture he made sure that my interests were well protected.
His conscientiousness around his billing practices are above and beyond any lawyer with whom I have worked. And, I have worked with many over the years.
My experience with Smilie’s services was a positive one and he maintained a professional, courteous and respectful demeanor at all times. He was responsive, available and kept me informed of what was needed to process my business needs. I was referred to Smilie by another lawyer to handle the tax aspects of the settling of my Mothers will. He came highly recommended and I have not been disappointed with his services. He has been most helpful with the many aspects of tax filing that is needed with the death of a person. I felt confident that I was getting the best information and that it was done quickly /accurately for my needs. He made a difficult situation more bearable with his efficient and professional manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good lawyer.
Went to Smilie to put in place my will, revocable trust and health care documents. I liked that Smilie had a background in taxes. The service was efficient and the price was within what I had budgeted.
My wife and I contacted Mr. Rogers with probate needs. His demeanor, professionalism, and expertise made the experience considerably more tolerable then we had anticipated. Mr. Rogers answered all our questions in a timely fashion and in a manner that we could readily understand.
We genuinely appreciated his help and guidance!
I cannot overemphasize what a tremendous help Attorney Smilie Rogers of York, Maine has been to me in recent legal discussions. While I am not sure of the total time he invested on my behalf, I do know that it was significant and he had my best interests at heart.My case was complicated and Atty. Rogers fully understood how to deal with it.
As a now-retired lawyer, I sought Smilie's guidence in regard to several trust and real estate issues. He quickly assessed the issues and immediately provided guidence through these legal thickets. He also later researched several questions and provided timely and helpful additional information. Plus, he has a very nice demeanor and dealing with him was a pleasure.
When I first met Smilie, I knew I had come to the right place. He’s easy to talk to and extremely thoughtful. And he has that rare ability to put a client at ease instantly. When I was dealing with a sticky issue regarding my elderly father, Smilie put extraordinary thought into offering a number of ways to approach the problem. The support staff in the office are equally personable, which is always a sign of a well-run practice.
