| Hired Attorney
I recently decided to sell farm land that had been in the family for three generations. The prospect of multiple family owners in the fourth generation was to me unattractive. The sale was somewhat complicated in that I shared ownership with my sister-in-law, and Iwanted to make the sale as amicable as possible. Robert did an excellent job of navigating the potential family minefieds and coordinating the execution of the sale even though my sister-in-law lived 400 miles away and the buyer lived 85 miles away. Property descriptions in some instances were vague, and Robert conscientiously cleaned up title issues that had accumulated over three generations. He was always available to answer questions with the only time I had wait longer than an hour was when he was in court with another client. I was pleased with his service and compared to other legal expenses I have incurred his fees were very reasonable. I recommend him highly.

Robert Van Uden Recommendation
Robert Van Uden serves as our Trust and Estate Attorney for a Revocable Trust of a family member. He has guided us through the inital stages of formation and organzation of the Trust. He has led us all the way through until the death of our family member, walked with us through the haze of confusion following the loss of our family member and helped us methodically proceed through the countless details of filing an estate tax return. He completed the filing of the 706 return on time and continues to provide guidance and insight into the required work that follows. It was our hope and intention to find a competent and experienced attorney and he has continued to exceed every expectation. He is available, he returns calls promptly and answers the simplest of questions with patience. He has the unique ability to translate complicated legal requirements into easily comprehendable language. He has stayed present and informed throughout this process and continues to complete all required document preparation and filings excellently and proficiently. I highly recommend Robert Van Uden and I am thankful that we have the priviledge of working with him.

Excellent service, invaluable knowledge and advice
Robert has been representing my mother, who has moderate dementia, for about 3 and a half years and has always guided us on a steady course through the complexities of providing her the best care within her means. He is personable and compassionate, knowledgable and experienced, and possesses excellent judgement. I have had nothing but positive experiences since he took over her case in 2013. He established a revocable trust and power of attorney, and has provided advice on numerous occasions when required.

An Excellent Attorney
Mr. Van Uden handled my Mother's estate. He discussed all steps in non-lawyer terms and walked us through the process so that it wasn't overwhelming. He was quick to respond to phone calls or emails and I felt comfortable with him handling the private matters of our family. I highly recommend him.
