Best Hoosier Attorney for a Texan
I consider myself extremely fortunate in finding and working with Mr. Michael Adler. Being from Texas and not knowing anyone in Indiana (except for the other party), I had concerns trying to find an Indiana attorney who could efficiently surmise my case and represent my interests to the other party, especially during the height of Covid-19. Mr. Adler represented me in a thoroughly professional and courteous way that resulted in an expedient outcome that fully met my goals. I whole-heartedly endorse Mr Adler for legal representation on business contracts in Indiana, especially if you are not a Hoosier.

Mr. Adler met with us, asked the right questions, and developed our living trust. His demeanor was both pleasant and professional, and his work was prompt and accurate.

Mike is absolutely as good as it gets when looking for someone to create and maintain your Estate Planing needs and goals. He helped our family create an Estate Plan that is exactly what we needed and wanted. He customized our plan based on our particular situation by taking the time to get to know our family and learn what was really important to us. He is knowledgeable and update to date on all the ever changing laws and issues that must be addressed in order to create a successful plan. He made sure we understood everything, much of which we never even considered or even understood until Mike explained it and pointed it out. I would recommend Mike to anyone and I am positive your experience will be easy and stress free, as there is not an easier person to work with. And as time passes and laws change Mike is always going to be there to help us adjust and maintain our Estate Plan.

Hired Mike to help with our estate planning and to draft our will for our trust. My wife and I met with Mike and he knew we didnt know all the legal talk. He talked with us and went through each part of the procedure in normal terms we could understand. Mike is a very well educated person, family man and likeable person who has his clients best interests in mind every time you need help with anything legal. I've even called Mike a few times on legal issues unrelated to Mikes practice and he has always passed me to a very good attorney who handles the need that I was searching for. His reputation is top notch in the industry. Very highly recommended for sure.

Excellent - Smart, Knowledgeable and Communicative
Attorney Michael Adler prepared our trust for us when we had our first child. He is a very smart and compassionate family attorney who know his stuff. He was always available on the phone/email/in person and responds to queries promptly. Above all he is a great human being who genuinely cares for his clients. I not only found an excellent attorney but a great friend as well.

Estate plan
We had such an enjoyable experience with Adler Law. Michael Adler was very accommodating throughout the process. My husband and I had been procrastinating for years to plan our will and set up a trust/estate. He was professional, easy going and explained everything in layman's terms. He has since helped us with multiple business/litigation issues.
