  Client Testimonials


I was very pleased with the services I received from Attorney Michael Vogel and his staff at Vogel Law Firm, Ltd., in the handling of an estate closing.  They were all willing to answer any of my questions and they handled every problem that arose in a professional manner.  They are very knowledgeable with the procedures on closing an estate, including what has to be filed with the courts and filing of tax forms.  They are a great bunch of people to work with and they set my mind at ease through the whole process.  I would recommend Vogel Law Firm, Ltd., to anyone. ~D.L., Janesville, WI

You restored my faith in attorneys, because it was seriously lacking before I came here. ~J.P., Janesville, WI

We just finished our estate plan with Mike Vogel.  We are so pleased and relieved to have it done.  Attorney Vogel was so thorough, professional, and took care of everything for us.  The entire process was so easy. ~K.B. & J.B., Janesville, WI

I am so glad I found you. ~R.O., Janesville, WI

After meeting with two other lawyers in Janesville, this client commented, "You're a country mile ahead of your competitors out there." ~J.R., Janesville, WI

You, Sir, are worth every penny! ~A.A., Janesville, WI

Thank you for all your work on my mother's estate.  You are a wonderful group of people. ~K.K., Southheart, ND

Thank you so much for your time.  I knew if my friend recommended you, that you would be good; and I am not disappointed.  I feel very confident that my trust will be perfect in every way.  I appreciated your knowledge and how personable you are. ~L.C., Janesville, WI

You are a gentleman and a scholar! ~R.A., Janesville, WI

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 answered all of our questions and brought up things that we did not think of. He was courteous and sincere.  We would highly recommend him to all of our acquaintances. ~R.K. & S.K., Janesville, WI

Thank you and your staff for all of your assistance in completing the legal matters in a professional, helpful way during what is, perhaps, the most difficult time in the lives of those who have lost a loved one. ~N.B., Madison, WI

I just wanted to thank everyone for all your help with my dad's estate, the help you provided during my parents' lives, and when we had to sell their condo.  It has been a real pleasure working with you.  Everyone has been very professional, friendly, and accommodating.  You explained everything along the way, and I felt that all my questions were answered exceptionally quick. ~A.S., Las Vegas, NV

I want to thank you for your work with the trust.  Twenty years ago, I was sure I would never have been put into the position of trustee.  I know it was a mess, but I want you to know that I always felt I was in good hands with you and your law firm. ~M.M., Spring Green, WI

This all seemed so overwhelming to think about and to do. But you lead us thru it all so quick and easy. You and your staff have been great. ~L.T., Janesville, WI

You are exactly what we were looking for to help us get things in order at this point in our lives, combined with our relocation to Janesville and Wisconsin. ~G.S. & D.S., Janesville, WI

Throughout this entire process, we were always grateful to know that we had you as our advocate.  We know that anytime we need legal advice, you are the one to call. ~A.C. & L.C., Orfordville, WI

 Estate Planning, Inheritance & Wealth Transfer Issues

When you are planning to leave your legacy to the next generation, an experienced attorney is necessary to explain your options in a manner that is understandable to people who do not think about planning issues on a daily basis. A software will-kit, or internet questionnaire, cannot take the time necessary to completely answer all of your questions. You need to spend time discussing your wishes with a lawyer who is skilled in estate planning.

The size of your estate does not matter. Remember, it is your legacy that is being left for your loved ones. Take the time to make sure it is done correctly. Call us today for an appointment.

Creditor protection and divorce protection are also necessary components to explore when discussing your legacy.  We will take the time to discuss ways to protect your legacy from a child's divorce or creditor problems. We want you to leave a legacy to your intended beneficiary, not a creditor or ex-spouse.

We can also assist with planning for a disability.  We will explain issues related to Medicaid and SSI, and assist you with drafting a trust to help protect assets you have created over your lifetime.  Additionally, if you are a trustee of a trust for a disabled person, we can advise on how to administer that trust to maintain government benefits.

A portion of our practice is also centered on assisting clients with long-term care issues, including Medicaid planning, planning for nursing home costs and related matters.  Eligibility for Medicaid has become a predominant concern for many families, especially families with one spouse needing care and the other spouse still in the community.  Attorney Vogel appeared on a local radio program on WCLO AM 1230 in March 2013.  You may listen to that broadcast by clicking this link:  http://podcast.wclo.com/milammonb3182013.mp3 , if the link fails to function, the broadcast is available at www.wclo.com under "Your Talk Show."

We are acutely aware of the importance of protecting family assets and the personal nature of the services that we are providing. Contact us today and let us construct a plan for you that will leave a legacy, not a mess.
