My wife and I unexpectedly found ourselves in the position of taking care of a relative who was beginning to show signs of Alzheimer's. Michael had set up trusts for each of us in prior years, so we contacted him to assist us in caring for our relative. Michael provided guidance for us to ensure our relatives' safety, provide for the relatives' long term care, and ensure that the relatives' assets would be protected and used for their benefit in accordance with their wishes. The process was not easy, but Michael coached us through the maze.
Michael also set up a Special Needs Trust so that we could provide a legacy for a relative of ours who is not capable of handling her own affairs.
Michael does not simply draft a trust and disappear, but keeps us informed of changes in the laws and provides periodic updates to the trust documents to ensure that our trusts will continue to provide the protection we need today and 'ease of use' for our trustees and heirs tomorrow.
Michael has a natural ability to connect with people in a way that makes them feel comfortable. The sincerity and compassion for what he does is evident in the positive results he provides for his clients.
