After my father passed away several years ago the family was referred to Dennis Brislawn to handle the formation of a partnership and a trust for my mother. From my first meeting I felt at ease with the recommendation of our accountant and was extremely pleased with the manner that Dennis dealt with a grieving family and a confused mother. Dennis has been our family partnership and lease attorney ever since and my personal attorney handling our living wills and our trust. Over the years I have consulted Dennis on numerous occasions, and about many things, in regards to family questions on the partnership, personal and lease questions and found him to be extremely knowledgable. I would highly recommend Dennis to anyone in need of a competent and skilled attorney.

Dennis did an estate plan for my family. He recommended a revocable living trust, we sat and listened to him for four hours where he mostly talked about his company wealth counsel, and some gun stuff he was working on. None of it was really relevant to my family's estate plan. He finally got around to telling us how much it would cost and for the sake of just getting it done, we paid for a revocable living trust. We came back 2 months later to sign the trust and our paralegal informed us that we would have to pay almost $2500 more to "fund" the trust. And without doing so would cause our estate to be probated which we were trying to avoid with the trust in the first place. Dennis was impossible to get ahold of, and when you finally did he could never give you a straight answer. I do not recommend this law firm or this attorney.

Dennis is a unique combination in the legal industry of someone who is very personable and cares about who you are and what you need but can back it up with exceptional technical expertise. He has worked on several legal situations for me and I couldn't have asked for better service and better advice. He is also extremely creative as an individual and can come up with some very innovative ideas and solutions in a variety of areas. Working with Dennis is like a breath of fresh air in the legal community and I highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance in estate planning, LLCs, Wills, Trusts, Gun Trusts and other related areas.

Dennis has been a real pleasure to work with. He is an excellent problem solver and is the most trustworthy attorney I have worked with. The trust he provided me was incredibly detailed, accurate, and affordable. There is no more worry for the "what if" scenarios. On top of his strong knowledge, he is very personal and caring. We have developed a great relationship from our working together and i expect it to continue in the future.

Dennis did a wonderful job of helping my elderly mother. She was a shy, gentle woman who found it hard to stand up to her family/children when they tried to determine where she lived or to take money from her. Because she trusted Dennis, after she was widowed she took his advice about making a living trust, and he helped her put into the document the protections which later enabled her to remain in her home as she wished and to die in peace. He has the highest level of legal knowledge and is willing to fight to protect his clients.

As the Manager, Planned Gift Administration for a national association I work on 60 to 80 estate and trusts yearly. My experience with attorneys, trustees, and executors is mixed. Most do not put much effort in communicating and putting 100% effort to closing the estates without my required inquires. Dennis and his staff gave nothing but 100% in all the above catagories. I highly recommend Dennis and his firm.
