When I hired Marta and her team they completely removed any intimidation I felt when navigating the probate process for my recently deceased father's estate. Matters were resolved in a fraction of the time and expense I originally feared and I never felt as though I had to make a decision without their support. When I needed advice or had specific questions I never had to wait and I never felt like relevant paperwork was sitting on someone's desk to be ignored. The Williger Legal Group simplified a daunting process. I've already recommended them to friends and family and I have no reservations doing so in the future because they're easily the best around.

I have been Marta's client since April 2012, when my late mother's overwhelming health problems forced her into a nursing home. Marta and her experienced staff supported me through the entire process of establishing a guardianship for her. Thanks to Marta's help, I was able to focus on Mom - not on interpreting legal terms or struggling with the probate court's reporting requirements.
After Mom passed away earlier this year, I received the same expert guidance as we transitioned from the guardianship to opening her estate. When closing the estate hit an unexpected snag due to problems with a bank's legal department, Marta was able to resolve the issue by reaching out to one of her professional contacts. This level of personal attention and experience is critical in legal situations, and can make a difficult time much less stressful.
My mother's estate is closed now, but I will be visiting Marta in the future for help with my own estate planning and future long-term care needs.
It is a pleasure to recommend her. If you need help with elder law issues, she is the one to see!

I became a client of Marta Williger because my wife had been in nursing care for three years, and I needed advice and help in dealing with finances. After a thorough review Marta outlined a program, and with much effort, resulted in an excellent result. I found Marta to be very knowlegeable and hard working. Much paper work was involved and negotiations and Marta gave it her total attention. My wife was acceped in medicade
