A Consultation with Rob Maitland about Real Estate Joint Ownership and Elder Law Issues
"Dear Mr. Maitland, Thank you for seeing us today about our family-owned beach house and the increasing burdens that joint ownership involving my three children and me has caused us. I can't tell you how helpful it is to have talked this through with you, and have our options presented clearly devoid of all the emotional weight that can't help but cloud each of our own family associations with the cottage. Thank you especially for the empathy and care you gave to our overall well-being and the longer-term considerations attendant on this decision for me as I approach my seventies -- I hadn't really acknowledged my own inadequate financial situation, but I do now and appreciate your concern, wisdom, and decency." (note sent by me to Rob Maitland after his consultation with my daughter and me)

Cut through the "red tape"
Rob was amazing! After wasting 8 months (and a lot of money!) with another attorney, I sat down with Rob and in an hour he laid out a plan to resolve my personal divorce. Even better, he was then able to communicate the plan to my ex-husband in such a way that he and his attorney started working with us cooperatively. Rob did more in two hours than the other attorneys did in 8 months. I wish I had found him sooner!

Great attorney- helped me when no one else would!
Rob Maitland took my case after another attorney told me I had no chance. Rob devoted the time necessary to understand the issues and then got my money back from the person who took it from me. He believed in me and worked very hard to see that justice was done.
