Matt did a great job setting up two trusts for me and recommending we apply for VA benefits for my mom. When ever I had a question, he was right there to answer the question and explain the details.

Matthew was very helpful, professional and efficient in helping us navigate through the complex process of applying, securing and receiving VA benefits for our father. We were very happy when we started receiving them within 3 mos of applying. He even met us on his lunch break while he was on Jury Duty, as he wanted to expedite the process. He always responded promptly with any questions we had. We would highly recommend him.

We hired Mr Luedke for a set of simple estate documents for my mother. Her estate was as straightforward as possible, and he generated simple form documents. But he didn't disclose his billing policies before the fact. He decided that some things were to be charged as a flat fee and some hourly. In other words, he wanted $800 for printing a document off of his computer, without changes, in addition to hourly charges. After we received the initial shocking bill, he sent out a second bill, for nearly the same amount - basically charging twice for the services. We were asked to pay about $2300 to divide my mothers $120,000 house three ways. It was a nightmare.

Matthew has been a great help for me as I learn and develop my elder law and Veterans benefits practice. He is knowledgeable, attentive, polite, and engaging. He is keenly focused on the issues that affect aging clients and their families. I endorse this lawyer's work.
