Michael updated our living revocable trust, including wills, powers of attorney, beneficiaries and healthcare directives. He included instructions for putting assets into the trust. He was very thorough, and he supplied us with an expandable file containing all the documents. Thank you, Michael!

I contacted Attorney Mike Hollander to put together a comprehensive estate plan for my family, he prepared a trust, will, and power of attorney documents. I met with him one time at his St. Charles office and the process could not have been any smoother.

I reached out to Mike due to a real estate issue. Mike listened to my issue, asked some questions, and quickly gave me legal advice on how to proceed. He was patient, understanding, and very professional. I look forward to working with him as he assists me in creating my will and trust in future.
