Madeline did a great job preparing my wife and my estate plans. She explained the process and legal aspects well, and answered all of our questions. She was professional but personable and made the process very easy. We highly recommend Madeline.
Madeline created a codicil for our wills to solve a problem our previous attorney created for us when he created a rather boilerplate will. She created a special needs trust for us and then, when my husband passed away, performed a painless probate. Since then (almost 20 years ago) she has created new estate planning documents for me and has always been available to answer questions by phone. Her book, "Where There's a Will There's a Way" has good ideas, too.
Madeline updated my will and powers of attorney. She is friendly, was responsive to my questions, professional and had good suggestions for updating the status of potential beneficiaries. She made the process quick and easy.
We are individuals who have unique circumstances and unique needs - like everyone. Madeline really listened to us, answered our questions, made recommendations and gave us choices to best create wills, POAs and Health Care Directives that custom fit us! She answered questions by giving real life examples that helped us to fully understand the legal ramifications of our decisions. She is a knowledgeable, professional, and positive attorney. Most importantly, she NEVER spoke down to us or made us feel inadequate in our knowledge of law. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend her - she's the BEST!
My wife and I worked with Madeline to complete our will. We had put it off for way too long. The process was pleasant from start to finish. Madeline is very knowledgeable and informed. She kept us on track and the finished product was what we wanted and we feel comfortable that it is complete and correct.. Madeline was very thoughtful and we can heartily recommend her to anyone looking to do their will or trust.
We needed assistance four years ago with preparation of our wills and health care directives and sought the expertise of Madeline. She helped us with insightful suggestions and guided us through its preparation. Recently we decided to make a few changes in our will. Again Madeline was efficient and helpful. We would highly recommend her.
We had an interesting set of circumstances with 6 children in a blended family with ex wives/husbands and grandchildren . Madeline walked us through all our options and in personable friendly manner and my wife felt heard and her concerns addressed. We feel very comfortable with our estate plan now and would highly recommend Madeline to anyone looking for a trusted legal advisor
We had procrastinated updating our wills, and finally faced the deadline of an upcoming trip. Madeline was incredibly responsive. She worked through our questions on how money would flow in several eventualities, and we got the wills done very quickly,
My husband and I had procrastinated getting our Wills and Powers of Attorney etc. done, but a friend recommended Madeline. We found her to be professional, friendly, caring and efficient. She gave us a copy of her book, which explains in easy-to-understand terms about the various documents. She provided helpful advice and insight from her experience over the years. We're glad we went to Madeline and recommend her for estate planning.
