Extremely Pleased
My brother and I were contemplating dividing our inherited farm into two parcels, rather than being owners in common. We were introduced to Buchheit Law by our previous lawyer who had retired. Buchheit Law did an excellent job of taking care of our request. We had a virtual meeting and she explained the process so we understood what would go on, and then kept us aware of the action required and that which had been completed. Buchheit Law recommended the surveyor and appraiser that were required, both very satisfactory. Lindsey and the staff were very easy to work with, covering any questions completely. I was extremely pleased with Buchheit Law, and would certainly use them in the future if the need be.

Top Notch Law Firm
Lindsey and staff are a top notch law firm to conduct business with. I made my first Trust with Buchheit Law firm. They made it very simple and easy to under stand things. They were very professional and their customer service is outstanding. They also guided me through setting up my Aunts estate. This office took a painful topic and made the process painless. I highly recommend Buchheit Law if you need estate planning or a Trust done. Good people for all your needs.

Great estate planning & Documents
Working with Buchheit Law was efficient, very effective, educational, and enjoyable. We have had estate documents since 2000, written by four attorneys, and this was by far the best process and outcome. They carefully listened to our desires and questions and responded clearly to all and drafted documents to reflect our joint decisions. We are confident the documents are adequate, and pleased they are more understandable than most. We can highly recommend Lindsey and all of her staff.

Excellent Service
When my husband faced a life-threatening illness, Lindsey and her team were able to expedite the creation of a revocable trust and the revision of our outdated wills, in addition to living wills and powers of attorney. They scheduled our appointments around our trips to the Mayo clinic and were always efficient and professional, but also kind and empathetic. Lindsey and her staff went above and beyond to make sure they weren't adding stress to an overwhelming time in our lives! We truly appreciate all they've done for us.

Intelligent caring professional
Lindsey and her staff did exceptionally well walking me through the divorce process, protecting me in the arbitration meeting and preparing me for the divorce hearing. I was impressed by the composure she demonstrated during the hearing and her ability to effectively examine my ex without coming across as mean spirited. Despite her never having handled an appeal, her performance and abilities made me confident Lindsey would be able to successfully handle the appeal filed by my ex. To her credit, Lindsey admitted she had never done an appeal and consulted with her mentor before agreeing see me through the appeals process. Lindsey was able to fill in her knowledge gaps on the appeals process and ultimately submit a winning appeals brief.

Wonderful Estate planning attorney
We were pretty intimidated about the process of creating and will and estate plan and Lindsey did a great job explaining everything and keeping the process as simple as she could. Lindsey was clearly concerned about making sure we were confident in every decision we made. She made sound suggestions and offered us pros and cons of every possible choice we had to make. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an Estate planning attorney as she is very knowledgeable, truly cares about her clients, and has the heart of a teacher.

Divorce Attorney
Lindsey represented me in my divorce against my ex wife. She was very knowledgeable and proficient. I would recommend her to anyone needing an excellent divorce attorney.

Not the stereotypical lawyer
Lindsey Buchheit's work impressed me on multiple levels. She had an uncanny sense of compassion and understanding towards my case. Lindsey treated me as if I was her only client, always making herself available for whatever I needed. Lindsey's communication skills are second to none. She has the ability to listen and understand in a way no other lawyer had for me in the past. Lindsey is not a stereotypical lawyer, a lawyer that gives you that "been there done that, let me do my job and don't bother me" feeling. How could so many terrific characteristics and abilities find their way into one Lawyer? I recommend Lindsey unequivocally and would use her services again in a heartbeat.

Highly Recommend
Ms Buchheit was very knowledgeable and offered sound advice when the situation called for it. Perhaps the best compliment I can offer is that she seemed genuinely interested in helping resolve the divorce as amicably as possible and made the process much easier than I had anticipated. My ex-wife and I had come to an agreement and a structure for a divorce settlement that we had considered fair, and Ms Buchheit helped to ensure we had thought of everything and that the settlement was legal. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a lawyer.

Excellent Estate Planning Attorney
We used attorney Lindsey Buchheit to do our Estate Plans. Lindsey was very honest and upfront with the cost of doing our plans. She had them done in a timely manner.
Posted by Pam | October 14, 2013
Professional kindness
Lindsey clearly understood the revisions we desired in our wills and living wills. She also made recommendations based on current situations, which we readily accepted. Especially meaningful to us was her response to a medical crisis we faced during the preparation of the desired documents. She was very kind and accommodating in completing the work in a timely manner.
