Mr. Siebers was the attorney for my elderly father's estate planning and finalization. He was not only professional but friendly and sensitive to my father's wishes. Everything was carried out in a timely and efficient manner. I highly recommend Mr. Siebers as your estate attorney!

Several months before our 89 year old father’s death, my sister set up an appointment with attorney Bill Siebers to prepare a will and power of attorney for Dad. My sister, my wife and I attended the appointment with my father and all four of us were truly impressed. We were welcomed and made comfortable. Bill was on time, very polite and very friendly. Mr. Siebers was attentive and understanding as we explained my father’s financial condition and medical state. Bill asked questions to gain better insight and often directly inquired of my father to be sure that the focus was Dad’s wishes and interest. When my father interjected several of his experiences from serving in WWII, Mr. Siebers showed genuine interest and patiently listened.
In the days to follow, Mr. Siebers prepared the documents in a timely and professional manner. In the meantime my father had been admitted to the hospital with his future unknown. Bill arranged for himself, his wife and his assistant to visit Dad and to sign the documents with along with Dad at the hospital. This made Dad feel “special”.
Several days later my father passed away. As power of attorney of the estate, I hired attorney Bill Siebers to handle the estate affairs. Bill did an excellent job of explaining the process and my duties to all of the family members. Throughout the process, Bill has been outstanding at communicating through email, postal service and phone calls.
Attorney Bill Siebers is polite, friendly, attentive, understanding, knowledgeable, professional, and detail-oriented. All of this while providing his services at very reasonable costs.

Attorney Siebers assisted with the administration of my mother's estate. In addition to the usual duties, there was a trust agreement that was modified to suit the heirs. He was clear in his interpersonal and written communications. He was knowledgeable about the pertinent laws and practical application of them. He was efficient, thoughtful and compassionate. His fees were reasonable.
Our experience with Attorney Siebers was entirely satisfactory. So much so that we asked him to draft and ultimately implement our estate plan, which is state of the art.
Since then there have been questions that have arisen in other areas of the law. He responded promptly to our calls and when it was outside of his expertise/practice, he made an excellent referral.
This man has the essential qualities for our attorney. He is ethical and professional.

I have been blessed to develop a professional relationship with Bill as we both practice Elder Law in different areas of the State. I have regularly spoken with Bill regarding complex legal issues and administrative hurdles. Bill's knowledge of the Administrative Code and his ability to interpret it never fails to impress me. He is also one of the kindest people I know and although I have not seen him interact with his clients, I am certain that his thoughtful nature carries over into his work.

I endorse this lawyer. He is outgoing and generous to his fellow attorneys. His knowledge of the statutes and the state agencies is strong and he helps those of us in the Elder Law Bar deliver better legal services to our clients as a result.
