Heidi Stewart, Estate planning Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse Mr. Masiuk and have listed that endorsement under Estate Planning because it is the most encompassing of the choices given. Over the years I have read Mr. Masiuk's answers to many questions on AVVO and have found him to be highly skilled in the areas of Elder Law, Probate, Guardianship and many other areas that can be condensed under the general caption of Estate Planning. I highly recommend Mr. Masiuk to any person seeking an attorney with exceptional technical skills as well as a deep and abiding understanding of the emotional issues that prevail in these areas of the practice of law.
