My husband and I have been planning to establish a special needs trust for the past year and our experience with Family Law firms had been less than ideal. In two cases, we had to ask twice to meet with an attorney, and then were contacted by an assistant and reminded of the fee for the consultation which had to be paid before meeting with anyone. "bring your check book" one said. Really? We simply wanted to know an estimate for costs to set up a special needs trust so we could decide whether to go with an attorney or a managed fund from the ARC. But we had to pay for that information. It felt very transactional and impersonal. But then, a friend referred us to Paul Dean and he was exactly the type of professional we were looking for: genuine, knowledgeable, and empathetic. He met us personally with no mention of payment until after he had spent an hour educating us on trusts and offering unpressured advice. I had to mention payment at the end of the consultation and he waved his hand saying, I will add it to a proposal. No pressure, just an authentic desire to serve our family. A great dad, neighbor, and business professional! I have since recommended him multiple times to friends and colleagues. If you are looking for personal and trusted legal counsel, the Dean Law Firm should be your first phone call.
