John was wonderful in aiding my family and I through the process of estate matters after my mom suddenly passed. He was always friendly, respectful and compassionate while also very professional and knowledgeable. We appreciate everything he did for us and would highly recommend him to anyone.
My wife and I engaged John a couple of years ago to assist us with our estate planning and will preparation. We couldn't have been more pleased with John's services. He is an extremely trustworthy legal professional who has the best interests of his clients in mind. John really took the time to ask a ton of probing questions that ultimately led to a plan that we feel confident with. I HIGHLY recommend John Christianson!
We followed John from his previous office. He helped prepare our wills and estate planning. We are very happy with his responsiveness and enthusiasm. It is a pleasure to work with someone who clearly loves their work.
Working with John Christianson at Menasche Law firm was an incredibly smooth process. John worked with my family on several cases ranging from estate issues to other business related projects. It was refreshing to have accurate, very accessible contact anytime we needed it. More importantly, I never felt rushed and the work they presented was always very clear, detailed and precise.
No one looks forward to that meeting. The one where you have to think about your own demise, and then talk about what happens next. Ewwww Like most people I put it off, but when I walked into John's office I could tell that he would make it an efficient, streamlined process; painless. John instilled confidence immediately. His demeanor is friendly and his approach gentle, but when we got down to brass tacks, he was all in, making certain all of the details were covered and that we had accounted for as many contingencies as possible. He helped me wade through the pro's and con's of how to provide for my children. Given their age differences he was insightful in how to accommodate each of them properly with as little potential for discord as we could. All the while keeping me focused on the task at hand and not getting lost n the emotional "weeds" of the process. Johns team was great; So efficient in their work and keeping me informed throughout the process. John's communication is stellar. I never had to wait long for an answer to that question I was certain was the most important one on the planet at the moment :) I know that throughout my life, I will be able to count on John for his guidance and expertise. Given that sentiment, it was easy for me to recommend him to a friend of mine. Her father had a sudden change in his health and she needed to obtain a Guardianship as quickly and efficiently as possible. To add to the fun, her family was going to make it a messy event. John rose to the occasion and gave her the peace of mind she needed to work through the process while trying to care for her dad and dodge her family's self induced chaos. Again John's team was amazing. Given that my friend lives out of state, they bent over backwards to insure the process didn't interfere with her ability to work on her father behalf for the medical and financial roadblocks she faced. I knew that she was going to have a difficult time sorting through all that she faced and I was certain that John was the right attorney to take care of her - which was a blessing given the gravity of the situation. And as an added bonus, John has a great network of people to add to the team when a "specialist" is what is needed. I could not be more pleased with my choice in John. He has shown me that the little "bio" they list on the website was not a load of *&#$. Its true in this case. John has my back.
I had been looking for a family trust attorney . Past few years tried several others which had resulted in high bills, lack of complete legal knowledge , poor communication and document errors. I can not convey my relief at finding someone that has all the above attributes in one person. Mr. Christianson dealt fairly with varying personalities of family keeping everyone calm. He communicates in a manner that all can understand what needs to be accomplished. He has shown an extremely in depth understanding and knowledge of the law within his field. I have complete trust in Mr. Christiansons's abilities to do the exact work that is needed without worry.
I had the opportunity to work with John to set up a trust fund for refugee children. He was personable, incredibly intelligent and compassionate, and also very efficient. I can't recommend his services highly enough -- he's excellent.
John did a great job getting our estate documents in order. He knows his area & was vey easy to work with on this project.
