Finally Peace of Mind
My wife and I searched for several years for an Attorney to help us build our Living Trust. We went to a multitude of luncheons and were always scared away by the complexity described by the Attorneys present. A very good friend recomended that we make an appointment with an Attorney who attends the same golf outing that we do, so we knew a little about Arlyn J.Bossenbrook before hand. We were both amazed and put at ease as he explained EVERYTHING required of him and us and how the whole process would take place should we decide to create a Living Trust. He continues to help us whenever we have a question or concern as his no. 1 priority. He treated us not only as a Client but a FRIEND. Thank you Arlyn.

Living Trust
Arlyn and his staff developed a Living Trust for us. They took the time to explain everything and answered any/all questions we had during the entire process. We are happy with the final product and would use Arlyn again should the need arise.

Terrific Trust Attorney
Arlyn handled a difficult situation for our family. Prior to my wife's death he established a comprehensive trust, including a special needs trust for my disable son. Arlyn has a special talent for excellent trust work handled with the utmost of discretion

Our estate planning experience
My husband and I worked with Arlyn to create an estate plan that provided for our family, including our pets. We were able to customize our documents based on our wishes, and all of the legal documents were fully explained and easy to understand. Even though we talked about our eventual demise, the whole process made me feel at ease. If we ever need any estate planning work done in the future we will definitely work with Arlyn again.
