Mrs.
Attorney Wnuck was wonderful to work with in getting our wills, power of attorney, and advanced directives composed. She carefully explained the legal terms so we had a clear understanding of the content of the documents, answered any questions we posed, and she was helpful in her recommendations. Attorney Wnuck made it an easy process.

Highly recommend. Very pleased with how she and her staff handled my father's estate
Lisa Wnuck and her staff assisted me with settling my father‘s estate. When an unforeseen issue arose, she and her staff resolved it to our full satisfaction. We were impressed with the professionalism with which they handled the situation. My accountant was also impressed with the income tax planning she provided when it came time at the end for his office to prepare the Estate’s income tax return. Because expenses were paid when they were and distributions made when they were, income taxes were minimized. I have no hesitation in recommending Lisa Wnuck and her very capable staff. They were pleasant to work with and replied promptly to my emails and phone calls. I could not have done it without their assistance.

Excellent probate attorney. She and her staff are a pleasure to work with.
When my mother died, I turned to Attorney Lisa Wnuck and staff to assist me with the probating of her estate. I can’t tell you how pleased I was with they way they handled the whole process. They were not only pleasant and kind, but also organized and efficient. The reasonable fee I was charged reflected this. Attorney Wnuck handled this matter with professionalism and ease and I can highly recommend her.
