Personable and Thoughtful
We are so very grateful for the excellent services of Collin Ritzinger. His ability to clearly frame our needs (and even needs we had not thought of) in the estate documents was invaluable. We also greatly appreciated his warmth and the way he put things in understandable language when he spoke with us.

Special Needs Trust
Our non-profit organization worked with Collin to establish a Special Needs Trust for a gentleman who was deemed incompetent. Collin took care of all the notices and paperwork, making the process seamless and efficient.

Special needs trust - brother
I was looking to setup a special needs trust for my brother and I know very little about what I needed to do. Attorney Ritzinger was able to provide me with the knowledge I needed in order to determine what is best for my brother. Thank you!
