Allen Telgenhof is a smart, responsible, ethical, professional who works hard to get the job done. I very highly recommend his services.
Because I live near Chicago, finding a lawyer in Charlevoix, Michigan to handle my long distance divorce case, initially, seemed like a daunting task. Allen Telgenhof was recommended as â€œa really good guy who you will be able to trustâ€. After phone interviewing several lawyersÂ¸ and then making the trip north to choose one, I retained Allen.
Both on the phone, and in person, he was very easy to talk to and came across as smart, hardworking, trustworthy, and understanding. During my divorce, he accurately assessed my needs and worked diligently to make sure my best interests were met. He was kind and understanding, and kept me well informed during the entire process. He was patient in addressing my concerns and in answering my many questions pertaining to issues that were difficult for me to understand. At one point, he advised me to not go in a certain direction, as it would not have been cost effective for me, even though he could have made more money. During mediation, he had a plan and worked aggressively to successfully secure my best interest .
In retrospect, I believe it was Divine Providence that led me to Allen Telgenhof. At the time, I was absolutely terrified and didnâ€™t have a clue as to how to proceed. Because of his handling of my case, I am finally able to move forward with security and peace of mind. And, for most in the throes of divorce, security and peace of mind feel forever gone. Allen Telgenhof restored that for me. I am truly grateful.
Thank you, Allen.
