Review John Stocking

About Me

Mr. Stocking's legal practice emphasizes wills, trusts and estates, Wisconsin's Marital Property Act, elder law, gift and death taxes.  He further concentrates his practice in a unique area of estate planning:  guardianships and special needs planning, which helps families with a person with disabilities plan the transfer of assets so that the person with special needs can continue to qualify for valuable federal and state benefits.
