I am a lawyer that practices in the area of estate planning and elder law. I occasionally run into a problem that I need help with. I have not found a question that Dave Steinhoff does not know the asnwer to. Other lawyers consult him because he is the expert. Individual clients should too.
I have recently testified for him in a probate case where he was the trial attorney. He won his case and did a fantastic job in the trial preparation (which is the key to winning in litigation) and in the courtroom.
This was a very welcome effort to settle a trust that was locked until a certain age for me and my siblings. We had given up hope until David tired a different approach and worked with the bank.
David is very professional and thorough. David was well prepared for court appearances and mediation. David and the firm handle preparation of my mother’s Estate Planning, Life Estate, and eventually probate for her estate. David was also instrumental in settling the affairs of deceased husband with hostile siblings. I would recommend David for handling any and all Elder Law concerns and Estate Planning.
David was thorough and professional in a very confrontational environment. Parent died intestate, but had made agreements with an older sibling in exchange for long-term and end-of-life care. As personal representative, I was prepared to honor the known wishes of our parent and did so. Other heirs to the estate challenged the distribution of assets in court. David's calm demeanor and superior preparation for the trial help me through the proceedings and, I believe, were the deciding factors to a judgement in my favor. I would not hesitate to retain David again.
David is an excellent lawyer. He is my go to person if I have a legal issue ranging from personal estate planning to real estate deals. And if he doesn't know the answer he will help me find someone who does. His integrity is without question. I would recommend David to anyone needing legal help. And I have.
