Dennis had prepared our wills some years ago and nothing much changed. Then my wife died and everything had to be changed. The firm offers great service and attention to detail. His associate Elizabeth did a great job explaining all the documents. Paralegal Donna assisted me with DMV documents and superior court document preparation to get the vehicle in my name. Dennis explained options for Long Term Health Care and I have not done anything yet but did get some quotes. Great group of people from receptionist on up to the top.

Dennis has assisted me with a number of issues over the last 20 years and I have been very pleased with his service.
He has drawn up wills, reviewed my parents wills, assisted us after my parents passed away and advised and drawn up various documents to assist my in-laws.
I have used several attorneys over the years but Dennis has been the best. He is very knowledgeable and really cares about his clients.

I hired Mr. Toman to review my existing wills, powers of attorney, etc. as well as to advise me on our financial situation. While Mr. Toman did review the documents for the initial fee, he did not follow up at all after our initial financial consultation with the financial arm of his firm, Elderlaw Financial. In fact, I haven't heard from Mr. Toman since our second meeting. I was under the impression that a follow up meeting would be scheduled as well as a review of my long term care insurance policy. Neither has occurred. I am very disappointed in this firm.

As a certified elder law attorney, Dennis is incredibly knowledgeable and a terrific advocate for his clients. I would highly recommend Dennis to anyone needing estate planning, elder law, or long-term care planning assistance.
