Practice areas

I love estate planning.  It's one of the only areas of the law where I know I'm helping people every single day I'm in the office (or on the road meeting clients).   

Yes, I did well in law school (graduated cum laude; top 10% of my class; Member, Order of the Coif; Chief Articles Editor for Volume 40 of the Loyola Law Review) but every attorney has a list of accolades next to his or her name.

Life is about being more than an attorney.  I get to spend my time trying to help others protect themselves and their families and be succeesful in all that they do. I have done this as an award-winning speaker and business coach.  I have done thisas a business development consultant for The Rainmaker Institute. 

Now, thankfully, I get to help my clients and their families through Wills, Trusts and Estates.  I'd love to help you and your family as well.

Highly Recommended
Although no one ever wants to think about “what if”, with two young children, having a will is an absolute necessity. It's something that needs to be in place, hopefully not to be used for a very long time. My wife and I had meant to do our will for a few years, but we just couldn't find the right person to assist us. After researching several other estate planning attorneys, we put our faith into Mr. Borenstein of Borenstein, McConnell & Calpin, P.C., and we couldn’t be happier with his exceptional service. Mr. Borenstein met us at our home at night, after our children went to bed. He assessed our needs by inquiring about our wishes, our assets, life insurance, etc., and explained all the options. Together, we determined what would be best for us. We had a multitude of questions, all of which were answered thoroughly and in detail. He took the time to make sure that our needs were understood, and he explained each step in preparing the wills. Shortly thereafter, we received and reviewed the draft documents, including living wills, health care proxy, powers of attorney, etc. (documents we didn’t even realize we needed). My wife and I had a few questions about certain details. An associate of Mr. Borenstein, Mr. Guttman, made himself available in the evening for a teleconference in which he guided us and addressed all of our inquiries. We feel very relieved that our estate planning documents are in order. It’s something that we don’t need to worry about, knowing that our children would be cared for by the guardians of our choosing, and would also be protected financially in their best interest. My wife and I highly recommend Mr. Borenstein and his staff for preparing estate documents or for any other legal needs.

It doesn't get much better than this.
I chose Alec's law firm to write my last will and testament. They asked the right questions, assembled the correct data and clearly explained all options. They were prompt, easy to work with, very responsive, pleasant and worked well around my schedule. The result was highly satisfactory. Alec is also a very nice guy and has earned my highest recommendation for legal services.

Great Attorney & Firm
We worked with Alec when handling our wills, which is a pretty daunting task as you're basically dealing with your own mortality over the course of 25 pages of text, but Alec made the whole thing impressively enjoyable. His colleagues were also extremely helpful and prompt in following up and answering questions, and I have already recommended the firm to family and friends.

Fantastic Estate Planner
Alec was phenomenal to my wife and I. He took the time to walk us through a very stressful decision making process, answering all our questions patiently and precisely. His professionalism was without parallel and his calm, friendly demeanor always was appreciated.
