We hired Matthew to prepared my parents’ estate plan because he specializes in elder law. We were extremely satisfied with his professional service and highly recommend him. My parents are over 80 years old and Matthew was extremely patient and thorough with them. My parents were extremely comfortable with the whole process as if he were a part of the family. He did the initial consult at my parents’ home, which impressed all of us because his office was over an hour away.
My brother and I were also involved in the estate planning process. I have a financial background as a CPA and my brother has a very limited financial background. Matthew was able to work with both of us through the whole estate planning process and was efficient but thorough in answering all of our questions. He was extremely professional as he addressed our questions which ranged from extremely technical to extremely basic. Matthew also responded quickly to our phone calls and emails. The firm site was very comfortable and the support staff was very friendly and professional. Our overall experience with Matthew and his firm was excellent.

My husband and I had our estate planning done through Matthew Bollman with Pearson Bollman Law. Matthew did an excellent job from our initial interview through to the signing ceremony.

Matt is friendly, attentive, and compassionate, all of which are of equal importance to his great depth of knowledge in the elder law and estate planning areas. If you're looking for elder law services in the Des Moines area, Matt should be your first call.
