also known as Michael Brennan, Michael F. Brennan
I currently live in Grayslake, Illinois with my wonderful wife and two crazy dogs. After graduating from the University of the Pacific-McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, CA, as a displaced University of Wisconsin-Madison alum, I saw a lack of options for young professionals to get legal assistance for their families and businesses.
As a licensed attorney in Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota I sought to provide that legal assistance for a reasonable cost. By using Skype and online communication rather than traditional means I realized that I could keep operational costs low, and in return pass that lower cost along to the clients who needed it.
I encountered far too many people who didn’t realize there was more to estate planning than just getting rid of your things when you die. They’d be surprised when I explained that it was through estate planning that they could make their wishes on life-sustaining medical treatment and feeding tubes known or ensure responsible people raised their children in the event of some tragic accident taking them out of this world.
Similarly, the brilliant young minds of today are a wealth of great innovative ideas waiting to be put into action. I wanted to act as an asset to these individuals by providing an affordable means of getting legal advice and assistance necessary to turn those great ideas into great businesses.
Generation Y grew up with technology all around them. From buying a new pair of shoes to paying an electric bill, practically everything can be done online these days cheaper and more efficient than it could be done in person. I never believed that the delivery of legal services had to be any different.
If you want to learn more about me, please don’t be shy about sending me a quick message. I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have. Whether you’re looking to protect your family or your business I look forward to working with you on your legal issues.
