  1. Estate planning
    25%
    Choosing to draft a will or trust is one of the most important and loving gifts that you give to those who are important to you. Every person who has attained age 18 needs to have a will, a durable power of attorney, a medical power of attorney, a health information release, a declaration of guardian, and a directive to physicians (aka living will). People often believe that “ESTATE PLANNING” is only for the wealthy. This could not be farther from the truth.

  2. Probate

    Dealing with the loss of a loved one is difficult enough without worrying about navigating your way through the Probate Courts and understanding Property distribution laws. Allow us to take that burden for you. Whether your loved one died with a will or without a will, we will navigate the path for you educating you along the way.

Highly Recommend
They are patient and caring. Really listened to the needs of their clients. We appreciated the guidance and service that we were provided. Took the time to explain everything and never complained about any changes we made (and we made a lot!). We would recommend Weisinger to anyone needing estate planning. Thank you.

Outstanding Experience with Weisinger Law
My wife and I recently engaged Weisinger Law to handle our Will and Trust.

Brittany and staff were extremely efficient and resolved all of our questions and concerns. We are so thankful that we chose Weisinger Law to handle this very important issue for us. We highly appreciate the care and concern you showed us during the entire process.

A Chat with Charlie
My phone conversation with Charlie was pleasant and informative. He called on time, was friendly, polite, professional, told me his opinion, and what he would do and alternatives of action. If I decide to continue the pursuit, I will continue with Charlie.

He is the man to see!
After the passing of my mother, I realized that I needed more than a simple will. Knowing Charlie from being a Realtor®️, I knew that he was the man to see. He not only updated my and my wife’s wills (the last one was 17 years old), but help with our trust, living wills, medical directives and more. I feel my family is now fully protected and in compliance with our wishes.

Will planning
Mr. Weisinger took time to understand my specific issues and to make concrete recommendations about how he would proceed with the matters that were discussed. I appreciate his patience in answering all my follow-up questions. His comments were clear and easy to grasp. He pointed out a number of issues that were very relevant but that I had not considered. He was thorough and very professional.

Estate/Will Legal Assistance
Charlie has helped me twice with my parent's probates of their individual estates as well as our personal estate planning. He and his staff have done an exemplary job for us, in all respects.
Posted by anonymous | March 16, 2015
Responsive and knowledgeable
Charlie is excellent. He is accessible, quick to respond, thorough, and thoughtful. My husband and I have used him, as have my parents.
Posted by Sharrich | November 12, 2014
Something you should know as a parent!
I found out before my son turned 18, that even though he was in high school at the time, that I would have no medical right to help my son medically without certain documents in place. You don't think about your high school kid being an adult, but that is exactly what they become and if you don't have a PLAN IN PLACE then you will not be able to help your child out since the doctors can't talk to you about what is happening and you can't give your opinion on which route to take medically should the need ever arise. Charlie explains everything clearly and even has a perfect mini-package that takes care of the above and even includes a will. Remember your kid is legally an adult at 18 and they need to be prepared for their future and Charlie is the BEST qualified lawyer to help you and your soon to be adult. In addition, he will be there for you should the need arise. Now with all that said, Do you have a plan in place? Charlie can help with that too as your kids should not have to struggle if something happens to you. Thanks Charlie for everything and giving me Peace Of Mind, knowing my kid is protected!

Would not go anywhere else
Charlie Weisinger and staff are the most caring, dedicated, professional individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. Charlie has taken care of not only me, but my entire family. Charlie has performed multiple services for my family. He has seen us through guardianship for an autistic nephew, estate documents for the entire family as well as taking us through probate. When my father and step-mother were preparing their estate documents, they could not easily travel to Charlie so Charlie and staff came to them which surprised everyone. When my father passed away, Charlie attended the funeral which stunned many attendees because they have never heard of a "lawyer" taking time out of their schedule to attend a service. But Charlie is no ordinary "lawyer". He, and his staff, truly cares about his clients and their lives. Toni O'Brien, Charlie's Paralegal, is amazing. She has been extremely helpful and represents Charlie well. She has been just wonderful to all of us and truly understands our situation. Toni still reaches out to the family to ensure we are doing well. I would and do recommend Charlie to my family and friends. I would not go anywhere else.

Highly Recommend Weisinger Law Firm
Mr. Weisinger put together a living trust for our family and came recommended to us through good friends. He was extremely knowledgable about estate planning and led us through the best options for our situation. You can tell he genuinely cares for his clients and providing them with the best product possible. He explained everything about our trust in a way we could understand and walked us through the steps we would have to take with our personal accounts, our home, investments etc. to make sure everything was included in the trust. He and his staff were always on-time, professional, and willing to thoroughly answer any of our questions. He not only provided a very nice binder with all of our estate documents; he also provided digital copies as well so we could easily provide copies to anyone we needed to. He always treated us with great kindness, integrity, and professionalism. We have recommended Mr. Weisinger to several family and friends, and will continue to do so!

True Professional
We hired Tom to develop our Estate Plan. At first we were anxious, not knowing what it entailed. He explained the process and made it seem easy to us. Tom even noticed minor errors in the first draft that we had missed, and was able to hand us our valuable documents in a short period of time. What surpised us was his fee, which was very reasonable.

A compassionate attorney highly recommended
I have known Charlie for almost 2 years now and cannot say enough great things about him. He is very patient and understanding. Setting up the right legal documents can be confusing and Charles took care of that for me. I now have peace of mind that my family will know exactly what to do in case of my passing and that there will be no confusion on my estate.
