My sincere recommendation of Attorney Daniel Van Slett
I lost my husband to Covid in 2020 while suffering from Covid myself as well. We both were in the hospital. I went home in a week; my husband passed away there after three weeks. I actually had to oaky them turning off life support as there was no hope. This was a second marriage and my husband left no will. Who expected to die like this? I was very ill myself, buried in paper work, and didn’t know much about my husband’s financial background. I needed a good and thoughtful attorney. My son knows and recommended Dan Van Slett. He proved to be very knowledgeable, very kind, very patient and very thorough. My husband’s estate included several income properties, three grown daughters and in the beginning an ill widow. I can not say enough about what a good man and excellent attorney Daniel Van Slett is.

Dan Van Slett
Dan does exceptional work. He is thoughtful, knowledgeable and professional. He was able to put himself in our shoes and anticipate our needs. He explained the legal documents and process, then gave advice appropriate for our family. We are very pleased with his services and will use him again if any needs arise.

Estate filing
Attorney Daniel Van Slett was a pleasure to meet and talk with yesterday morning. As a senior recently moved here, I was referred to this young man by a new friend. I lost my dear brother last month, and Dan listened to my estate filing concerns—he was thorough and understandable as he guided me through the process. Ended up that I did not need to retain his services yet he still took time during this complimentary visit to make sure that I understood what I needed to do to satisfy the estate. He also took time to review my own out-of-state estate planning document. I would have no hesitation to retain his services if/when needed in the future.

Truly the Best!!!
Found Daniel when our lawyer retired and it was the best thing I could have done. (Wish I'd found him sooner!) He is very knowledgeable, sensitive and caring. He asked good questions and brought our documents up to date teaching us a lot. I would recommend him to anyone.

Trusts and Estates
My husband and I recently moved back to Wisconsin from Florida. We had had our will and trust done in Florida but we wanted to make sure everything was in place for Wisconsin. Dan made several suggestions that made our trust easier to work with and was exceedingly thorough. The process was completed on Zoom which we were all comfortable with and the final signing was done in Dan’s office with masks and social distancing. All in all we were delighted with the work.

Could not ask for better
Dan did a wonderful job with all of our estate planning, including making sure that our daughter with special needs would be taken care of. He is responsive to communication and proactive in moving the process forward. He not only took the time to answer all of our questions, but made sure that we understood the process and our options. We have a great peace of mind knowing that when the time comes, our children will have the support they need to settle our estate as smoothly as possible.

Very professional and responsive
My wife and I hired Atty. Van Slett for our estate planning. Although this was our second time going through estate planning, Atty. Van Slett walked us through all options to consider and answered all of our questions in an understandable manner. The entire process went smoothly, and accommodations were made for virtual meetings and signing options due to COVID that worked very well. Overall we were very pleased with our estate planning experience with Atty. Van Slett.

Van Slett Law
My wife and I wanted to have a will and trust created and were referred to Van Slett Law by an attorney friend. Dan carefully explained all of our options at the start and kept us informed all throughout the process. I would highly recommend Van Slett law to my family and friends.

Unmatched Professionalism, Expertise, and Personal Touch
I hired Attorney Van Slett to prepare a will for me. It was a bit last minute as I was preparing for surgery and wanted everything in place prior to the procedure. Mr. Van Slett went out of his way to make sure everything was completed according to my short timeline. He was extremely competent, kind, and a wealth of knowledge. He helped me navigate the difficult decisions involved with creating a living will and power of attorney. I've worked with quite a few lawyers in the past and Daniel outshines the best of them. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone as I strongly believe his professionalism, subject matter expertise, and personal touch are second to none.

Business Consult & Contract Review
I was referred to Attorney Van Slett in January of this year. I knew from his initial email response that he places a value on his clients. He responded expeditiously and offered flexible options for the initial consult. He arrived on time and actually took time to listen before responding to my questions, concerns, and business needs. That in truth has become more of a rarity in this day and age. He did not rush the consult and followed up promptly with a quote for my business contract review and other consult needs. He took time to explain the changes he recommended and more importantly why. I have been happy with the service Attorney Van Slett has provided thus far and have referred him to my clients as well. I look forward to working with him in the future as my organization grows.
