Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese. You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand. You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.
The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls. Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails. An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.
Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs. Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible. It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.
Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

In this video, our Milwaukee estate tax attorneys explain Asset Security, Implications for Taxation, Independent Trustees, and more regarding estate taxes for irrevocable trusts in the state of Wisconsin. Irrevocable trusts in Wisconsin enable beneficiaries to escape probate and various forms of taxes after the grantor passes away. If the grantor is still alive, his properties are passed to a trustee. The trustee is in charge of the assets' management. In most cases, once assets are deposited in a trust, they cannot be taken out, according to Wisconsin law. For further questions or help in this field, do not hesitate to contact O'Flaherty Law today.
In this episode, our Milwaukee estate tax attorneys explain both Wisconsin and federal gift taxes. Any gift is taxable in theory, although there are a few significant exceptions. Gifts of tuition or medical costs paid directly to a medical or educational institution for another person, for example, are not taxable. It is important to understand what possible taxes are to ensure beneficiaries of an estate can maximize their inheritance. For further questions, do not hesitate to contact O'Flaherty Law.
