Jim was very knowledgeable and helpful. Due to the unique circumstances of my request, Jim was extraordinarily helpful in expediting the creation of my documents. You can't beat Jim's knowledge and experience and he provided a lot of good insight that helped us to create very flexible and efficient legal documents.

My wife and I used Jim Voeller as our Estate Planner Lawyer. We were VERY pleased with his professionalism and attention to OUR details. I was prompted to write this review because of a recent experience. We were meeting with our Broker and discussing our portfolio. He asked if we wanted to also look into Estate Planning. When we told him that we had done this and did it through Jim Voeller, he made the comment, "Well you did it with the Best, I am well familiar with Jim's work, you are in good hands"! That made me think, "We are in Good hands with Jim and I should share our pleasure with his work with others". And that's what I'm doing. Great work should not go unreported.

We hired Jim to handle estate planning for my father-in-law whose care needs and costs were steadily increasing. He set up a special needs trust, updated his Will and POAs, applied to the VA to increase my father-in-law's disability pension and recommended a financial advisor to help us invest the proceeds from the sale of his house. Everything was covered, soup to nuts, and because of the special needs trust, my father-in-law's VA disability pension was doubled and will now, along with his other pension and social security, cover just about all of his long term care. We are very pleased. Jim is very competent and professional and always available to answer questions.

Jim Voeller his a down to earth lawyer who really cares about providing exceptional service and spot on legal advice to his clients. Even though Jim Voeller has been practicing law for over three decades, he still takes the time to be up to date on cutting edge areas of the law. I highly recommend Jim Voeller if you are looking to hire a lawyer for your trust and estate planning needs.

I have known Jim for a number of years both professionally and personally. I am proud to call him a colleague and have gained more than my fair share of practical and substantive legal knowledge from him. He is generous and kind without being schmaltzy. He is intelligent and wise without being overbearing. I enthusiastically endorse Jim and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a first rate yet humble lawyer.
