Excellent Probate & Estate Planning Lawyer
Kurt Rifbjerg is an excellent attorney who is highly skilled, personable, and considerate. My wife and I retained his services to prepare our Family Revocable Trust. We met several times during the process to develop and revise the Trust documents including a Will, Advanced Health Care Directive, and Durable Power of Attorney. For the initial meeting Mr. Rifbjerg sent information and a questionnaire for us to complete prior to the appointment which allowed us to focus on our specific needs. Each time we met Mr. Rifbjerg spent considerable time listening to our concerns and addressing our questions. He was easy to contact and communicated either by phone or email in a timely manner. Draft and final documents were provided on-line in pdf format. Our final meeting to sign the documents was an enjoyable experience, Mr. Rifbjerg was prepared and organized which made the signing process proceed efficiently. Working with Mr. Rifbjerg to prepare our Revocable Trust was a very nice experience and I highly recommend Mr. Rifbjerg for Estate Planning services.

Fantastic Attorney
Kurt helped my wife and I with a probate and we could not have been more pleased with the level of service we received. Kurt is professional, courteous, responsive, knowledgeable, experienced and easy to work with. Kurt always took the time to answer our questions fully and in a way that was easy to understand. Kurt knows his stuff and it was very apparent throughout the whole process. While we hope to not have the need to go through another probate, we plan on using Kurt to help us with estate planning. We cannot recommend him enough!

Great attorney
Hi I hired Kurt to help me negotiate the termination of my commercial lease and shutting down my business. He was fair, honest, and my situation ended up favorable compared to what it could have been. I highly recommend him

Excellent lawyer and painless process
Kurt was extremely responsive and easy to work with. I have never done estate planning before and was worried that it would be a cumbersome process. Kurt walked me through everything and made sure I was comfortable with all of my decisions. I didn't think it was going to be so easy! He is very knowledgable, thorough and helpful. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for his services.

An Excellent Lawyer
Kurt played a significant role in a successful family trust contest. A former family member who was also the trustee convinced my incapacitated grandmother to amend the trust greatly in his favor and to my detriment. The trustee also conducted troubling financial activity administering the trust. Kurt skillfully organized a case concerning the trustee's behavior while concurrently working on the trust contest. Had it not been for Kurt, my overall case would have been much weaker. The trust contest culminated in a settlement in which I received about 90% of what I was originally entitled to. You would be very fortunate to hire an excellent, highly esteemed lawyer like Kurt to defend your interests.
