Ms. Alleman helped me with Guardianship for my Son who has Downs Syndrome . She also prepared a Will for me with a Special Needs Trust for my Son. She did a great job explaining the court process to become his guardian. I was impressed with how quickly she handled everything. She also really helped me to understand how a Special Needs Trust will help my son to keep his medicaid and SSI benefits. Her costs were reasonable and her staff was helpful. The advice she offered gave me peace of mind.
I was not happy with the way the office of this lawyer handled my will. The paralegal who answered the phone was frequently rude in her responses and did not always give accurate information (for example, I was told witnesses would be provided free of charge but then was charged $50.) Also, the original balance cited by the attorney was not the ending balance by a large amount even though very little was added to the original work. She was also not transparent about the costs of any and all inquiries by phone or email. I did not receive any initial information stating how much each minute cost for said inquiries, etc. I would have been better off sticking with legalzoom.
Mrs. Alleman was extremely helpful for my family. I was able to become guardian for my son so that I could help him with medical decisions. It was very stressful not having guardianship because the doctors would not talk to me. Mrs. Alleman made the process very simple and stress-free. We thank her very much and recommend her to anyone who has a disabled family member.
