We had real issues with an executor and her probate attorney, especially since we were out of the state. We hired Jeff, and we immediately began to feel great. He was attentive, competent, and affordable. I'd recommend him highly to anyone in need of probate help.
So, I was in need of a Attorney. Who specialized. Jeff was Great.. He was informative...spot on..
Cost was reasonable.. He is NOT a typical Attorney...but one who went out of his way to get the job done..
His kindness and reassuring of the situation, was not only comforting.. but as I said... Spot On..
I can not thank him enough..
I was the successor trustee of a family estate. I hired Mr. Gottlieb to help me settle the estate. I had to deal with a number of relatives, many of whom I had not seen in years. The family trust provided a different distribution of assets to each of the named relatives. One of the beneficiaries was an attorney. My relatives challenged the accounting and tried to micro manage my handling of the estate. It was very frustrating. We had several beneficiaries challenge the trust. We had other relatives who threatened to sue me even though there was no wrong doing. Mr. Gottlieb calmly and professionally helped me through all the challenges. He kept me on task and on schedule. He made sure that I followed all the appropriate steps to settle the estate as quickly and efficiently as possible. He was always there. I don't know what I would have done without him. I am blessed to have found him. I cannot say enough about his professionalism, his knowledge, his being there for me.
Jeff helped my wife and I administer her father's trust. He advised us concerning possible legal challenges by dissatisfied beneficieries, wrote letters to trust beneficiaries, assisted in distributing trust assets, and explained cost and expenses of trust administration. Jeff also helped us with several ancillary matters, i.e. our potential liability for gifting old firearms to a relative.
In all matters Jeff demonstrated great knowledge, experience, and kindness. Most important to us, Jeff was always easily accessible by phone or email, patiently answering our numerous questions.
We highly recommend Jeff to anyone having any legal issues relating to wills, trusts, and estates. You won't be disappointed.
My review of Jeffrey R. Gottieb is he works very hard to make sure he's clients are happy and well taking care of. He is very trustworthy, responsible, informative, and honest. I would recommend Jeffrey to anyone who wants fast and professional help with a case that will need excellent advice. The number one observation that I took upon Jeffrey is that I knew with a little faithful we were going to be in good hands. I really appreciate the knowledge and professionalism that Jeffrey uphead and I will defiantly recommend him to everyone that needs a helping hand.
We live on the northwest side of Chicago and googled "living trust" lawyers to find an office in the area, as well as general information on living trusts. We found the most useful information about estate planning on the web site for the Law Offices of Robert H. Glorich including "How To Get Started"; a confidential estate planning information form; and Living Trust FAQ's. Upon arriving at the Glorich law offices, we worked with Jeffrey R. Gottlieb, who handled our estate planning. Throughout all our exchanges with Mr. Gottlieb either in person, or via phone or e-mail, we found him to be helpful, knowledgeable, and professional in all our exchanges. We understand that he created the very helpful website information that had brought us to the Glorich law office in Palatine.
Jeffrey helped us with a probate issue that, prior to contacting him, we had been struggling with for six months. We had pretty much given up on solving our problem - we were dealing with an out-of-state will. Other professionals we spoke with told us they could not help us. He handled everything very professionally and was able to resolve our issue in a few weeks. We truly feel that, without his guidance, we would not have been able to settle the matter.
Jeff and his staff were and are great to work with, as well as, very honest, professional, competent and fair with all my needs.
Jeff handled my mother's probate in a very professional manner. He is very knowledgeable on the latest laws and regulations as it pertained to my case. I felt Jeff gave me the insight and information to help me make better decisions. I would highly recommend Jeff and if needed use his expertise again.
Jeff Gottlieb was very knowledgeable, and demystified the probate process for us. It was difficult to lose my mother, but my grief was compounded by the shock of being named the will's executor. I had no prior experience or knowledge of the legal process involved. Jeff was fantastic. He explained each step of the probate process, initiated all the forms and court documents, appeared in court, and kept us informed throughout the probate period. His experience and calm demeanor gave me the confidence to make important decisions. He always returned e-mails or calls promptly, and answered all of my questions. When my husband and I left his office after our first meeting, I felt as if a tremendous weight had been lifted from my shoulders. Retaining Jeff was one of the best things I ever did.
