I hired Lawrence in August of 2015 to fight some very difficult probate and estate matters. My Dad passed away and I had a greedy half-brother who destroyed my Dad's will and tried to claim in a court of law that my Dad wanted me to have nothing. The case had many facets and also involved three other attorneys. This case ended up dragging out for a couple years and Lawrence fought tooth and nail to carry out my Dad's wishes (which were in fact 50/50 distribution). Lawrence had to deal with issues dealing with: adoption by estoppel, administration of Dad's Estate/selling assets, appraising businesses, handling/rejecting creditor claims, distributing assets, and obtaining releases. Lawrence spent a great amount of time on my case (and killed many trees with all the legal forms he generated!) Lawrence was a true professional throughout my horifying ordeal and got the outcome I was entitled to. I can say, with complete confidence, Lawrence cared about me as a person, as well as a client, which helped me through many dark and uncertain times. While no one really enjoys dealing with lawyers/attorneys, I enjoyed working with Lawrence very much. He definitely was a high caliber attorney, and was worth every penny I paid him. Simply put, he was the best, and I will be using him again when the time comes.

I retained Lawrence to work on an Estate matter involving a parent that passed away without having executed a Will or any other legal directives. Lawrence explained the process and helped me and the other heirs navigate the process promptly without any incident. He was incredibly compassionate, while also being judicious with the time spent on this matter. There were some aspects of the Estate that came up that were out of the ordinary and could have caused an incredible amount of extra time and expense that he helped me resolve completely. He is a great attorney and a super nice guy to boot. I'm a legal professional by trade and have worked with many attorneys in many different practice types and Lawrence is one of the best at what he does.

I hired Lawrence one year ago to create a will for me and my wife. We received top notch service. I was impressed with Lawrence's courteous and professional manner and timely response to my emails. He assisted us with thinking about the future needs of our children and what may be best for them in terms of financial allocations. Also, we were advised on the many other important aspects to consider such as medical directives, power of attorney, and various life scenarios that could impact my family. Lawrence was very thorough, and I feel that we hired one of the best!
The will was completed in the amount of time necessary for such an important document. We were given all the time we needed to review it and make changes.
I would definitely hire Lawrence again for my family's needs in estate planning.

Mr. Dietlein put together wills and powers of attorney for myself and my husband. He also helped us set up a trust for our children. We have specific, faith-driven stipulations that we wanted added and he was able to help guide us as to what should be included and what shouldn't, as well as the proper terminology. He was very friendly and easy to talk to, so our meetings were always enjoyable. Everything was put together exactly as we wanted it and very quickly so we could have the peace of mind knowing that our children and belongings are taken care of if anything should happen to us. Overall we had a wonderful experience and have already been recommending him to family and friends.

My wife and I recently hired Lawrence to prepare a Charitable Lead Annuity Trust. This type of Trust is not common and can be quite complicated to ensure accurate tax accounting for the charities, Trusties, and heirs. Throughout the process, Lawrence was professional, personable, and spent the required time to explain details about the Trust and various options. When reviewing details of income tax charitable deductions and gift tax deductions, Lawrence brought in a tax expert to help walk us through the deductions to ensure that the Trust scope would match our goals and expectations. He also provided us with reference materials detailing Lead Trust terminology, definitions, and summaries that were useful for initial review and will certainly be helpful for future reference
In the end, we were very satisfied with the work that Lawrence provided for us and we would highly recommend him to anyone seeking his services.

I was very pleased with my experience w/Mr Dietlein! I have used other attorneys in the past over the course of my lifetime, & honestly would rather do just about anything else than deal w/an attorney....until now. Mr Dietlein was very informative about what was going on at all times, & would answer me as quickly as he could, as often as I needed an answer to any of my many questions. I had a bit of a difficult case to deal with, & he made it just as smooth as he could for me; I shudder to think of having to go through that ordeal with someone else. I have since referred him to my granddaughter, & she bragged about how well he explained any & everything to her that she did not understand!
I would highly recommend Lawrence Dietlein....I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

Not your run-of-the-mill lawyer. Smart, pleasant, responsive. He solved a tricky (or so we thought) problem for us quickly. Highly recommend him, and we will use him again when the need arises.

My husband recently passed away and I was left with a lot of confusion along with my sorrow. I contacted Mr. Dietlein to clear some of my questions. He immediately contacted me back and guided me throughout the whole process. Whenever I had a question he was there to support me.
I would definitely recommend his services.
