More than just an attorney.
I have been very please with the estate planning services Ben has provided to my family. I have known Ben since 1999 and have referred, and continue to refer, friends and clients to Ben. My professional relationship with Ben's firm, Bogutz & Gordon, began 30 years ago. During that time I have found Ben, and other attorneys at Bogutz & Gordon, to be very knowledgeable in estate, tax, probate and elder law issues. When necessary Bogutz and Gordon has the expertise to serve as a court appointed conservator for protected individuals. Additionally, they have staff trained to assist in providing care management. These are important services not available at most law firms.
