My family hired Len Mondschein way back in 2001 to set up fairly routine estate planning for my Dad, who was 83 then. Not much was required for some years thereafter. During those same intervening years, my mom developed full-blown Alzheimer's and became bedridden and could not communicate at all. My dad passed away in late 2012, and it was actually fairly sudden, considering his advanced age. It also immediately plunged us into a desperate situation, because my mom was utterly helpless and we needed an Emergency Guardianship set up enabling us to manage all related financial and health matters for her. Emergency Guardianships are pretty uncommon, even in Florida, and non-trivial to get. Len stepped in on literally one day's notice, was in court repeatedly over the next few days, and won the EG ruling. He also guided us carefully and constantly thru the next two years of transitioning to a permanent Guardianship, managing all financial and court-related processes, even connecting us to some first-rate outside counsel in tax matters and real estate issues with the family home. When my mom passed away in late 2014, Len developed and executed an elegant and successful strategy to ward off outside claims against the remnant estate, saw us through 18 months of probate. The incredible part of to our family was that he was able to do all of this for us even though none of us siblings lived in Florida, or even in the southern part of the country, and much of the filings and documentation constantly required assent or execution from all of us. I personally spent the most time working with Len as the designated Guardian, and what stays in my mind now that it's all past us was the respect and even admiration that the various court administrators, judges and staff always showed Len; and the unique mix of legal precision and family compassion he brought to the table. We learned over time that the reason Len is such a special lawyer, is simply that he is a very special human being. You should count yourself extraordinarily lucky to work with him if the need ever arises.

Mr. Mondschein provided excellent legal assistance in explaining available avenues in Elder Care for my 82 year old mother living alone in a Nursing Home in Florida. He went the extra mile since I live in Houston, Texas and was unable to travel at the time I required his expert assistance and advise. Mr. Mondschein was able to legally represent me and successfully resolved my mothers Nursing Home residency. Mr. Mondschein, again I thank you.

Mr. Leonard Mondschein helped solve my estate planning and elder law situation. I first called him on the phone and then we met in his office. He spent a considerable amount of time with me and listened to my problems, which he solved. He explained everything in terms I could understand. I felt very comfortable with him and would highly recommend him.

I highly endorse this lawyer. Len has devoted countless volunteer hours to protecting the elderly in Florida, and to educating other attorneys in Florida, and across the United States. He is among the best and the brightest in the field of Elder Law. Len is a caring and compassionate person, and he has the highest of ethical standards. Len is a credit to the legal profession, and I highly recommend Len Mondschein.
