Mike Vogel did a very thorough job of setting up my trust. I have very special circumstances with health issues for my beneficiaries. Mike researched all of the options I had in setting up my trust and presented them to me before making my decision.
Mike Vogel and his staff acted professionally at all times. This was all done in a timely manner. I highly recommend Mike Vogel and his staff for all your legal needs.

Several years ago, my parents asked me to manage their finances in the event they could not manage themselves. It seemed like an easy enough request. I felt confident that I could pay their bills on time and keep the check book balanced. Besides, my mother was indestructible and would never, ever need my help with this.
But in 2001, my dad’s health failed and my mom was diagnosed with dementia. It was then that I realized that I had agreed to something that I was never prepared to handle.
I met Mike Vogel at the very beginning of this very difficult time in my life. Mom and dad had done their powers of attorney for health care documents incompletely so both needed legal guardianship. Dad’s would later be reversed but mom’s continued until her death in 2007.
During the span of 7 years, Mike helped me navigate the very confusing legal system. My education as an RN did little to help me understand the complexities of legal guardianship of the estate for mom which included very detailed accounting of her finances every year. He assisted me with the sale of their home, which I had never done before. He advised me in the management of separate financial accounts for each of them and helped me with their taxes. When dad died in 2005, he helped me as executor of dads estate, which again I had to knowledge of how to do and then helped me with settling mom’s estate after her death in 2007.
It is impossible in a short paragraph to tell you just how ill equipped I was to manage mom and dad’s affairs. It was far more involved than simply paying the bills on time. I turned the trust that they had in me over to Mike who helped me every step of the way through a very long and emotionally difficult 6 years. He did so with knowledge, expertise and compassion and I could never have done it without him.

I located Vogel Law Firm through an internet yellow pages search when searching for a collection attorney in Janesville, WI. I was most impressed with the diligence and speed with which he pursued my case as well as the close communication he gave to me throughout the process. Within a short period of time, his office contacted me with the good news that he had collected the entire amount of my judgment. I have used collection attorneys in other states in the past, but the amount of professionalism shown to me by his firm is by far the best service I have ever received. I would highly recommend Vogel Law Firm, Ltd. to anyone needing a debt collection attorney within his practice location.

We scheduled an appointment with Vogel Law Firm to have our Will prepared. Although the thought of preparing our Wills was unpleasant, Vogel Law Firm made the visit very comfortable. Not only did the firm walk us through every step, they presented ideas and solutions for every possible scenario. We now have peace of mind that everything is in order. Vogel Law Firm went above and beyond our expectations and we would highly recommend them!
