We met Mr. Vogel at a seminar and were referred to him by our financial planner to re-work our trust.  I can tell you it was a wonderful experience.  It was like sitting at the kitchen table talking with a family member.  He is extremely knowledgeable.

He was courteous and sincere.  We would highly recommend him to all of our acquaintances. ~R.K. & S.K., Janesville, WI

Estate Planning:

  • Inheritance Issues - Vogel Law Firm, Ltd., handles every aspect of estate planning and inheritance issues. Our firm handles matters from the very simple wills to complex estate and gift tax planning strategies for high net worth families, including the use of wills, powers of attorney for finances, powers of attorney for health care, living wills, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, charitable trusts, asset-protection trusts, multi-generational trusts, dynasty trusts, limited liability companies, family limited partnerships, and other sophisticated methods to reduce income and estate tax for families, farmers, and business owners.   We also assists families with asset protection, long-term care planning, nursing home planning, and Medicaid planning.  Vogel Law Firm, Ltd., has assisted well in excess of 2,000 individuals and business owners with inheritance and estate planning needs.  Contact us today to put your plan in place.  We will help you create a sophisticated, yet understandable, solution for your family, business, or farm.
  • Wills - A will can direct distribution of your assets and name a guardian for your minor children. Even if your estate plan is a trust-based plan, a will is necessary to name a guardian. In certain situations, a will is more desirable than a trust. Do not be mislead, schedule an appointment today to consult with the experienced estate planning attorneys at Vogel Law Firm, Ltd.
  • Trusts – A trust is often used to avoid the expense and hassle of probate. A trust can be either revocable or irrevocable, but a trust is worthless if your assets are not properly transferred to the trust. All of our trust plans include transferring your current assets to the trust (funding the trust). We handle all aspects of living trusts, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, charitable trusts, insurance trusts, and testamentary trusts. Contact us today to begin your planning or to assist you with creation of a trust for you or to assist you with administering a trust.

  Probate and Trust Administration:

  • When a loved one dies, added stress is the last thing you need. If you desire to help your loved one with their legacy, but wish to avoid unnecessary stress and confusion, you need an attorney with experience in Probate and Trust Administration matters.  Vogel Law Firm, Ltd., has assisted hundreds of families with legal issues following the death of a loved one.  There are various issues that require competent legal knowledge related to estate or trust administration, and Vogel Law Firm.

Experience is necessary to help you through the probate process as stress-free as possible.  If you have been selected to serve as a personal representative/executor for a probate matter or as a trustee, then you need guidance from a law firm with years of experience assisting families with the probate and trust administration processes.

Additional Testimonials

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

Thanks for doing an excellent job setting up the trust, etc. We are all impressed with you and it has given the entire family a sense of peace and excitement. ~D. E., Fifield, WI

We went to Attorney Vogel to do a family trust and powers of attorney papers.  At our first meeting, we were truly impressed that Attorney Vogel took so much time with us in covering all of the issues.  At this time, he talked to my husband and included him in the conversation.  Most people talk around a person with Dementia, as if they are not present.  Our second meeting was for Attorney Vogel to help us apply for Medicaid.  He and his staff did a great job sorting through all of the paperwork required by the state.  Anytime my son or I had questions about both procedures, either his staff answered our question or Attorney Vogel returned our calls in a timely manner.  We would highly recommend Attorney Vogel and his staff to others. ~L. B., Beloit, WI

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! ~B. K., Janesville, WI

The situation with my mom was the most difficult and emotional period I’ve experienced. Your firm treated my elderly mother as an individual with sensitivity and professionalism. Today she is happier and better cared for because of your professional and high standard of services. Bless your heart for all you have done to help in this difficult situation. ~D. M., Whitewater, WI

    This will be a brief blog post. Quite often, I am asked whom to contact for assistance with the elderly.  The best place to begin when trying to locate services that are available to serve your elderly spouse or parent or a disabled person is to contact the local Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC). There are many resources available to assisted your elderly or disabled loved ones.  A helpful link to these contacts is here:

    Many clients have contacted me regarding the establishment of a trust to hold a family-owned lake home, hunting land, or other piece of treasured real property tied to the family. A question that often comes up in my initial discussions with clients is whether a trust or limited liability company (LLC) should be used as the vehicle for this purpose. Clients know that simply deeding the cabin to their children is not always a viable option. The clients need to create structure and procedure for t...
