About Michelle

Learn Michelle’s areas of practice.

The Law Office of Michelle R. Siebenaler provides Estate Planning, Probate, and Elder Law services. My goal is to assist clients through the process of Estate Planning, Probate, and/or Medicaid Planning in a clear, methodical, and compassionate way. I take the time to listen to my client's questions and concerns, to ensure each estate plan is detailed and customized to the client's specific needs. I enjoy getting to know each of my clients, and never want a client to feel rushed or intimidated by the legal process.

I offer affordable flat fee rates for Estate Planning, and affordable hourly rates for Probate and Medicaid Planning Services. I am also willing to travel to the client locally, if this is more convenient than meeting at an office location.

Thank you for visiting my site. Even if you are unsure if you have a legal need, please feel free to contact me.

Very kind and detail orientated
Michelle helped our family through a very rough time. She made herself available and drove very far out of her area to make sure we were taken care of. Michelle is very kind and caring. Thank you Michelle!

Happy I Found Michelle Siebenaler
I was fortunate to find Michelle Siebenaler to complete a probate that was started with another attorney. The probate involved disabled heirs—one on Medicaid. Michelle is very knowledgeable, and she gave me information and options that I hadn’t heard about—such as being able to start one’s own Special Needs Trust. In a related case, she represented me and helped me provide information to the DHS, bringing their claim against the estate to a quick and good resolution. Beyond being a very smart and skilled attorney, Michelle is also very kind and thoughtful. As executor, I was occasionally overwhelmed by the work, and she was always willing to help. She is also straightforward and honest about her fee, giving an upfront estimate of hours for the job. In every case she was more than fair. I could not recommend her more highly.

Very pleased clients!
Michelle carefully assessed our situation and then created the documents we needed to prepare for our future needs. She wrote our wills, created our living wills and drafted our power of attourney documents. She was thorough, knowledgable, considerate, and efficient! I highly recommend Michelle!
