Excellent Estate Attorney
My mother and I were very pleased with Mrs. Graziano's services. She gave specific and clear explanations as to why my elderly mother needed certain documents and guided us through the process of creating power of attorney, medical power of attorney, a pour-over trust and will documents. Both my mother and I feel much more at ease moving forward.

Ms. Graziano Review
Ms. Graziano kept me apprised through out my legal process. She was extremely communicative and responsive. Her professionalism and demeanor allowed met to put the slow legal journey in the back of my mind rather than ruminate on a daily basis. I always felt my interests were a priority. I would highly recommend Ms. Graziano.

Elizabeth Graziano was a life-saver for us.
When I met Elizabeth Graziano in 2013, the only member of our family still residing in Ann Arbor was my handicapped brother, supported in part by an ancient trust from our mother. When my brother had his first stroke, Elizabeth helped us get my brother's affairs in order, including meeting with him and helping him design medical directives. When my brother died in 2014, she was instrumental in helping us close his affairs, and she took over trusteeship of our mother's trust and closed it as well. All this was accomplished with truly amazing competence, sympathy, and efficiency. And it allowed us, the remaining siblings, to proceed with our own lives without having to spend a great deal of time in Ann Arbor. We feel deeply indebted to her, and we also feel that we have acquired a new personal friend in Ann Arbor with whom we want to keep in touch. We have highly recommended her to all our friends in Ann Arbor.

Real estate advice for first home purchase
I hired Liz to assist me in the process of buying my first home. She was very helpful in answering all of my questions about the process and reviewing the closing documents. It was reassuring knowing an expert looked over the mountain of paperwork that greeted me at closing! I would recommend Liz to anyone looking to buy a home.
