Knowledgable & Easy to Talk To
I was recommended to Mr Wild from a friend who swears by him. I am so glad I went to see him, as he explained all the legalities of the estate planning that I needed to know (and had no clue about). I was truly impressed, both with his knowledge and his way of breaking it down in layman's terms. He was so easy to talk to, explain everything clearly, and answered all my questions, so that I was able to make intelligent decisions regarding my estate planning. I Highly recommend him to anyone & everyone!

A fantastic experience
My husband and I are so happy that we found Mr. Wild. At our initial meeting we found him to be extremely knowledgeable, responsive to our questions, and genuinely caring. He was meticulous in his work ethics and punctual. We would highly recommend him.

Very impressed
Establishing a trust can be a daunting, however, with Mr. Wilde he got me through the process seamlessly. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. He put together a comprehensive trust then took the time to explain it all. I was very impressed with his service and would highly recommend him

Comprehensive Multi-Generation Estate Plan
We first went to Michael to update our 3 generation estate plan which needed an entire overhaul. It was complex and included business and corporate components as well. Michael met with our entire family and step-by-step answered each question. It was overwhelming for us due to all the moving pieces, but Michael was extremely patient and competent as he helped restructure our entire multi-family plan. He explains the legalities of each provision so that the client can understand it clearly. Even after the documents are drafted and questions arise, he remains available to speak with you. In today's ever-changing legal environment, we are confident that we found the right estate attorney to represent the current and future generations of our family.

Very pleased with the service Michael provided to both me and my clients.
Michael is an excellent source of knowledge and has assisted many of my clients with estate planning needs. I would highly recommend using Michael for any legal work. He is responsive and very patient with assisting clients of all ages.

Fully Recomended
I am an attorney who has handled some probate matter over my 26 year career, however when I needed personal advice concerning my late wife's estate I found Mr. Wild to be in depth, concise and far more knowledgeable in this particular area which gave me great comfort despite my general knowledge of the subject matter.

Word of thanks
Michael did my own estate plan which was necessary since my family is out of the country and I wanted to make sure they would receive the assets they are entitled to. He made everything easy and stress free for me and now I have peace of mind. Thank you Mike
