Far exceeded my expectations !
I would highly recommend Attorney Melissa Gleick as an estate planning attorney. Attorney Gleick is highly educated, and possesses in-depth knowledge to assist her client/s with their desired Will/Trust structure. It is Attorney Gleick’s ability to explain the most complex scenarios and convey this to her clients in a clear, concise, and comprehensible manner. Among many of Attorney Gleick’s fine attributes is her ability to listen to her client; not the most pervasive element in today’s legal profession ! (And, this is what contributes to a successful and meaningful relationship with any client). I, myself, incurred several unexpected obstacles establishing my Trust with my brokerage firm which Attorney Gleick handled with an abundance of patience. Attoney Gleick exceeded all of my expectations, (and I mean, “ALL”), and made the entire process easy. This obviously comes from knowing what you are doing…, And, doing it extremely well ! Thank you for your fine work Attorney Gleick.

Excellent estate planning attorney
We hired Attorney Gleick for a complicated family estate plan and she excelled and handling the process. She understood our concern, addressed the challenges that we presented, and we were very pleased and comfortable with the results. We have recommended her to friends, and they also found that she brings a certain understanding that not all attorneys have. We have been very happy with working with Melissa.

Expert in Estate Planning
My husband and I met with Attorney Gleick to prepare an estate plan for the two of us. We have several assets and wanted to make sure we were prepared and that everything was in order so we did not need to worry about the future and what would happen in case of the unexpected! Attorney Gleick was very informative and extremely knowledgeable and wonderful to work with on such a sensitive topic. Estate planning is something we did not want to put off until it was too late. Attorney Gleick made sure we are prepared for the future. I highly recommend Attorney Gleick.
