Posted by a Estate Planning client
Go elsewhere if you are looking for an estate lawyer in Akron Ohio. Michael Sweeney at Brouse McDowell is careless, sloppy, and will not take responsibility if he makes a mistake.
He recently handled the estate of a loved one who died. By the end of the estate, he had improperly distributed the inheritance and denied all responsibility, even after his paralegal Michele Banner admitted to making an error. At the end of the day, our family is stuck with an awkward mess and Michael Sweeney could not possible care less. Instead of answering our family's concerns directly, he had his managing partner at Brouse McDowell, Marc Merklin, send us a nasty letter.
If you are looking for estate planning or you have a loved one who is working our their last will and testament, I highly recommend looking elsewhere. If you are looking for an estate attorney in Akron, Ohio, you will do better to avoid Brouse McDowell. Just my humble opinion based off a unnecessarily frustrating year.
When you hear jokes about lawyers being useless, these are the guys that help those jokes live on.
