Estate Planning

Mr. Rossmeissl did a excellent job in preparing our requirements and presenting the information in a clear and professional manner to myself and my wife. He was able to resolve all our questions without any hesitation. He was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the task. It was a very good experience to work with Tom on this project. We will use him on all our future legal requirements. Thank you.

Estate planning

Tom recently completed the first amendment to our will. We asked him to do so after receiving an evaluation from Tom in late 2010 of tax law changes affecting our 2004 will. My wife and I are both lawyers. We have been very impressed with Tom’s work since he became our estate planner in 2004.



Tom was very efficient and knowledgeable about my trusts. He was well prepared in reviewing my old trusts and in making the necessary changes. He was very inclusive about all the different items/forms that needed to be signed by myself and trustee. I have recommended him to my friends.


Estate & Trust Review

Tom quickly grasped the issues involved in a complex international trust matter. Per my request, he was able to generate several options in formulating a non-litigated resolution. He was a strong advocate, skillful in gaining valuable information through his contacts with potential adversaries, and remained in regular communication.
