Detailed and personal estate planning services and consultation
Dan provided a comprehensive consultation and recommendation for our specific situation. His final product was second to none, with a formal binder that is well organized and very detailed. We would recommend Dan Dorsch for estate planning needs.

Trust creation
Dan Dorsch recently completed a trust for our family. He gently guided us through the decision process involved in creating a trust. He spent the time necessary to make us comfortable with our decisions. Mr. Dorsch’s knowledge and expertise gives us confidence that the final product is legal, comprehensive and meets our needs both now and in the future. The overall experience was extremely positive and satisfying. Anyone needing the services to create a will or trust will be well served to consider Daniel Dorsch as their attorney. Both my wife and I highly recommend him without any reservation. Harry and Carolyn A.

Happy we hired him for wills/estate work
My husband and I hired Dorsch Law Firm to update our wills and add other estate planning documents. We were looking for a small or individual firm, rather than a flashy, large corporate firm. Based on our research, we contacted Daniel Dorsch. Our initial meeting showed him to be easy going, caring and easy to talk to. He took the time to get to know us, our needs. He’s good at explaining all aspects of estate planning and answered all of our many questions. He has proven to be an excellent attorney, extremely knowledgeable, and has provided us with all the documents we need. His prices are reasonable. We would recommended Daniel Dorsch to others needing wills and estate planning documents.

Attorney Dorsch listened very patiently as I explained what I needed him to do as my Trust attorney. When he understood what I needed him to do he prepared the necessary wording. As we progressed through my Trust expectations he kept me informed on each step. He always made sure I fully understood what the final wording would say.

Review from Stephen and Marles Dudley
Daniel Dorsch created a new family trust for my husband and myself. His work was detailed and thorough, pointing out and including specific information necessary for the trust. We asked him to turn out this trust in a short span of time because we had a deadline. We can't thank him enough for his kindness, expertise and expedience!

Great Service - Again!!
I am a repeat client of Dan Dorsch’s and had to write another review because – once again – Dan went way out of his way to help me with my legal matter. In keeping with my track record – what should have been a very minor thing turned into a time consuming issue. Dan was my first call. He is a beacon of hope in a storm of frustration – always calm, always encouraging and always working way beyond what he should, to bring things to resolution. Sometimes you get great service and it’s a fluke. Sometimes you’re just lucky and you catch the right person at the right time. Sometimes the stars align and you find someone who truly cares. Dan Dorsch tuly cares. He cares about what’s right. He cares about what’s fair. And – most importantly, he cares about the people who come to him in their hour of need. I can’t sing his praises enough. If you have a legal issue, I strongly encourage you to reach out. You will not regret it! Thank you so much Dan!!!!

Fabulous Attorney!
I selected Dan Dorsch out of the blue and couldn't be more thankful that I did. In the whole big world of legal issues, mine would be minor to most - but Dan made me feel like I was his most important client. He worked diligently and quickly to bring the matter to resolution, explained things along the way, offered support and guidance and delivered exactly what I needed. He's extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and just a darn great guy!! I don't want to say I look forward to the next time I need an attorney :) - but I know when that day arrives, Dan will be my go-to!! Thank you Dan!! You're the best!!

Will and other documents
We knew we needed a Will, but we were unsure as to what other documents. With our initial meeting with Mr. Dorsch he had a list of documents we would possibly need. He explained each one to us and helped us determined the documents needed. He is very knowledgeable, prices are reasonable, and accommodating in setting up an appointment. He even offered reviewing a LTC document for us, which was not necessary. We enjoyed working with him and I would highly recommend him. We will use him again, if needed.

Dorsch Law Firm is Top Notch!
Dorsch Law Firm helped me with the much procrastinated task of my own Estate Planning. Dan Dorsch was there to help make it as painless as possible. It is very apparent to me when my attorney has my best interest at heart. And Dan is top notch when it comes to that! His efficiency is remarkable, which gives me peace of mind knowing that my future and financial security have been handled by the best attorney in KC!
