Excellent advice
Spoke with Mr. Niemann for over half an hour, asked him a lot of questions regarding guiding myself and my brothers and sister of what steps to take regarding our 93 year old mother in getting financial aid for arranging an aide for my mother in her town house. Gave me step by step suggestions in what to do financially and what he will do down the road when we get to that point of getting him involved in navigating the paperwork involved to get financial assistance from the state and VA. The phone call was definitely worth it.

A great attorney
He did our will and medical requests. When my husband passed I didn’t understand much of how everything really worked. Fred took it very slow with me until I understood everything I needed to do. His staff is unbelievably compassionate GREAT one on one. He’s really very understanding. I would reckoned him to everyone I know. A big thank you to his team. Jo Ann

Great experience!
This is not the first time that I have used this attorney. Bonnie Wright and Tracy Balsamo are absolutely amazing. They are incredibly professional and efficient. They are so responsive and supportive. I would hire them again in the future. I recommend them 100%!

A very smooth experience.
Ms. Nicole Tomlin was extremely helpful in working out a legal issue for me. She was kind and knowledgeable every step of the way. She kept me posted during this time where the court systems are extremely slow and worked to get the matter resolved as quickly as possible. Regina Shannon also did an excellent job in keeping me posted on everything and helping me along the way. I highly recommend this law firm.

Fantastic Experience!!
During these crazy COVID times, I have had a hard time finding a lawyer to write my mother’s estate. She was recently diagnosed as terminal, and is wheel chair bound. Finding someone to come to the her house was so difficult. Steven Kornas was our lawyer with this firm, and he was wonderful throughout the entire process! Everyone I had contact with made this process as easy as possible, and were a joy to work with! I appreciate everyone’s effort! I highly recommend this firm if you need help with someone elderly!

I Highly Recommend Mr. Fred Niemann!
I highly recommend the services of Mr. Fred Niemann (Hanlon, Niemann, and Wright) for your legal needs. I met Mr. Niemann while I was researching attorneys who specialize in elder law services. I needed assistance preparing a Medicaid application for my mother. At our first meeting, Mr. Niemann’s level of experience was apparent, as was his compassion regarding my mom’s situation. My mom’s case was more challenging than expected and required an appeal. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Niemann and his team kept in close contact helping me understand every step they were taking to secure a positive outcome. (Originally, I had planned to complete the Medicaid application on my own and I am so glad I didn’t!) Our case was recently settled in our favor and our entire family is grateful for the expertise of Mr. Niemann and his team. A very special note of thanks goes to Diane Fanok, an absolutely amazing legal assistant: patient, thorough, and ultra organized. I feel fortunate to have met Mr. Niemann and I look forward to working with him and his team to help meet my future legal needs.

Great!!
Contesting a will for undue influence is a very complicated endeavor. Our dream team of lawyers, Fred Neimann, Christopher Hanlon, and Christopher Balioni, along with their amazing paralegals, Valerie, Annette and Lia went above and beyond our expectations in representing us and achieving the outcome we desired! It was a long, brutal fight, but they never gave up and we were victorious! We could not be happier with how they represented us and the ultimate result. They were patient, understanding and fair, on top of being highly knowledgeable and just all-around great people! Look no further in your search for hard-working, honest lawyers. You won’t be disappointed!

Precious Representation
Are you looking for superb representation in a pending legal case? After numerous searches for the best attorneys in this respective field, I have decided to retain this exceptional firm. Mr. Fredrick Niemann of Hanlon, Niemann & Wright assisted us in a guardianship matter. As this case became unexpectedly convoluted, entirely complicated and thereby, treacherous to navigate, Mr. Niemann gently guided me towards an optimal path to obtain my desirable result. He helped avert plenty of psychological distress while minimized the legal costs I would have to incur had I been led to pursue a wrong course of action. Mr. Niemann is insightful, informative and affable. Aside from the obvious and unrivaled litigation experience, Mr. Niemann directs an office of commendable staff, a place where good but often lost old values such as respect, compassion and integrity still live on.

Medicaid & Legal Updates
I had to put my wife into a Nursing home last year due to an illness. Everything was very overwhelming. I had a ton of things on my plate including getting legal advice and consultation. Fred was recommended to me so I gave him a call. Thank god I did. Fast forward I now have my wife on Medicaid and all my legal documents for both my wife and I have been redone/ updated. I have found Fred and his team (Diane F.) great to work with. They understood what I was going through and were very understanding and worked hard to make the process as seamless as possible. Partnership, Trust, Collaboration, Professionalism, Patience (which they needed with me) are some of the words I would use to describe him and his team. We even had a few laughs along the way. I would HIGHLY recommend Fred Niemann and his team.

Estate Planning
I recently retained Mr Niemann to prepare all of our estate planning documents for myself and my husband. We were leaving for a vacation across the country and wanted to be sure if anything happened that our children would be all set and taken care of. He was very understanding of our deadline and made sure to fit us in. Mr. Niemann and his staff took the time to make sure we understood everything every step of the way. All of our questions were answered and we feel confident of our childrens' futures. I will absolutely be referring Mr. Niemann and his team to all of our friends!

Simply the Best!
Mr. Nieman was a true professional who set up a trust fund for our special needs child. In addition he prepared wills and health care directives for my husband and I. Of course we had a million questions to be answered and some very hard decisions to make along the way. He really understood that and never rushed or pushed us just to get things done. Fred Niemann was able to guide us through the whole process and answer all of our questions with the utmost integrity, knowledge, and patience! I have to mention that he has a wonderful staff in his office, especially Michelle his assistant, who always manages to get you a quick answer or to provide guidance to you through email or phone call after speaking to Mr. Niemann. I highly recommend Mr. Niemann. We are definitely planning to hire him to obtain legal guardianship of our daughter before she turns eighteen years of age. That's how much we trust and respect him!

A very good listener and follow-up lawyer
After several attempts to TALK to an attorney who wanted to listen to my case and situation, Fred Niemann, was very refreshing. I felt totally at-ease with him. Very down to earth and very detailed, indeed. I would highly recommend him without hesitation. By the way! His staff is really great and professional, indeed

medicaid application
We were applying for medicaid for my uncle, which was a very complicated case with unusual circumstances. Mr. Niemann was confident, personable, and reassuring that he would do everything possible. It was an absolute pleasure working the legal assistant, who was assigned to our case. She demonstrated expertise, encouragement, and calm thru a very difficult and stressful time. It was much appreciated. The medicaid application was approved. We could not have navigated the medicaid system on our own. My husband and I will surely consult again with Mr. Liemann, for our own estate planning.

Extremely satisfied with results
Mr. Niemann enabled me and my brother to ensure that our mother will be well taken care of in the future. My mother now requires nursing care and will, most likely ,need to be in a facility at some point. We want the best for our mother and just want to assure that all of her needs will be met with the resources that her and my father worked all their lives to save. Mr. Niemann and his staff guided us through this plan and we know now, because of their help and guidance, that mom will be ok. We are so grateful for the professional and caring manor which we were treated and I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Niemann in the future.

Thank You
We hired Mr. Niemann recently after our dad passed away. While mom and dad had their wills all set up, some adjustments needed to be made since mom was now on her own. In addition, Mom had never signed her living will but, after experiencing dad"s illness, she realized that this was a necessity so that she would someday be in control of her final days. Mr. Niemann and his staff were wonderful in how they dealt with mom and her concerns (and fears) and really put her worries to rest. Mr. Niemann seemed to genuinely care and he truly has a great way of communicating the law and the best ways to protect yourself. Thank you to the entire staff at Hanlon Niemann!

Very satisfied client
I set up an appointment with Mr. Niemann based on a friend's recommendation . I was so pleased with the professionalism of both Mr. Niemann and his office staff but I was pleasantly surprised with the empathetic approach to my issues. Let's be honest, some lawyers approach matters of wills and trusts from simply a business perspective, but Mr. Niemann really listened to my family's circumstances and without judgement did the right thing for us. I truly felt that he listened to our goals and prepared things accordingly. He gave recommendations and I am completely comfortable with how our future is set up.

FRED IS A WONDERFUL DECENT PERSON AND ATTORNEY
I am shocked to read the previous review. I have spoken to all of our professional staff and no one has had a Medicaid application rejected within the last six months for failure to provide information or otherwise. Our firm has built a wonderful reputation with the supervising staff and case workers in the counties we serve. Our approval record is almost 100%. Because this person refuses to disclose themself, we can only assume it is a fraudulent posting by either a competitor or a person who failed to follow our standard office procedures. I am so confident in the qualify of our work and our commitment to total client satisfaction that should anyone reading the previous AVVO posting and who calls us and mentions this post, we will offer a 100% client satisfaction guarantee. If you are not fully satisfied with our services to you, we will refund your professional fee 100%. Again, the previous post is a fraud and horrible example of professional sabotage.

Mr. Niemann Really Helped Me Out!
I am a beneficiary under my parents trust. I am entitled to income and principle from the trust now that I turned 25. I met with Mr. Niemann to better understand how a trust works and how I should expect it to be handled for me into the future. Mr. Niemann was very patient and explained everything simply and to the point. I really liked him and told him I would write a testimonial on his behalf.

A very satisfied client
Mr. Niemann handled my affairs in a very efficient and timely manner. He made me feel extremely comfortable and encouraged me to ask as many questions as I wanted without making me feel silly. There were alot of issues he raised which I would have never thought of and I always felt that he had my best interest at heart. Bottom line is that he is very good at what he does.
