Lawyer Endorsements

“Michael Hanks, Attorney at Law, represented me as Executor, Successor Trustee and long-term Trustee following the death of a family member in 2011. This was a very complex and large estate/trust that took three and one-half years to fully settle. “Settlement” included the resolution of numerous claims and issues involving – among many other things – the necessity of commencing probate proceedings to deal with the revision (e.g., ultimately assumption) of millions of dollars of commercial real estate loans (despite the existence of a family trust), resolution of a very difficult civil action initiated by the decedent’s second wife (already divorced from decedent at the time of death), creation of intermediate and long-term trusts and complex and delicate issues related to the decedent’s sole beneficiary. Settlement also required solving a vast array of accounting problems, as well as the interpretation of numerous extant legal agreements and documents (that sometimes provided little guidance) and the drafting of many new ones.

Mr. Hanks handled all aspects of the process (for me) with consummate professionalism, strong (and wise) interpersonal abilities and very solid legal skills. I’m confident the decedent’s testamentary goals and objectives could not have been better achieved by any other attorney. I would recommend his legal services to anyone dealing with trust and estate matters.”
