It was a relief to have Zisl as an attorney

It was a relief to have Zisl as an attorney handling the myriad of issues surrounding my ability to act as power-of-attorney and handle my brother’s financial and health matters. When my younger brother developed worsening dementia and had to be admitted to a full care nursing facility, she was there in both a professional and supportive way. Additionally, she provided several contacts to other professionals dealing with many aspects specific to my brother’s care that were indispensable in providing services and aiding me in being there for my brother in his time of need. I highly recommend her.

The Medicaid application process is without question the most complex and confusing I have ever seen.

She is an attorney who not only supports her clients legally, but in every aspect as well

During the very difficult time of finding my father proper care as well as taking care of my parents’ estate, Ms. Edelson was able to guide and support me and my family. It was evident from the start that she is well-versed and highly experienced in elderly/estate law. She went above and beyond to answer all of my questions in a timely fashion (and continues to do so) as well as ensure their estate and well being were her top priority. Ms. Edelson has a plethora of resources and connections which she uses to fully support her clients. She connected me with patient advocates that would help me to ensure the best care for my father as well as other resources to best support my family emotionally and financially. At the end of the day, she is an attorney who not only supports her clients legally, but in every aspect as well.

I highly recommend Zisl Edelson to anyone who is looking for an excellent and caring elder law attorney

Dear Zisl, Thanks so much for your wonderful work and all you did to help when my husband’s Parkinson’s progressed to the point where I could no longer care for him by myself. Just today I was reading about what to do when your loved one has to go to a nursing home, and the first thing it said was to hire an elder lawyer. I’m so glad I found you . . .  you took care of everything, including contacting the financial adviser and helping my husband find a bed in a nursing home. You were always there for me. You are so thorough in your work, down to the last detail. You also made me feel so good when you said to contact you anytime, even after everything was completed. I did contact you several times after everything was finished, and again you took care of everything at no extra charge.  I highly recommend Zisl Edelson to anyone who is looking for an excellent and caring elder law attorney.

She adeptly handled some thorny legal and family issues

Attorney Zisl Edelson is kind, efficient, and easy to work with, as well as highly proficient and knowledgeable. Although I had previously consulted other estate planning attorneys, Ms. Edelson was the first attorney to identify and explain why, in addition to a Will and Powers of Attorney, I also needed a Revocable Living Trust to avoid probate and a Special Needs Trust to protect my adult child with disabilities. She adeptly handled some thorny legal and family issues, and in the course of her estate planning advice took a broader perspective which helped me to identify and get out of a shaky real estate investment.

I was very pleased with Zisl’s knowledge of estate planning and special needs trusts

All her work was done on time and at a fair price. She encouraged questions, and was always available by phone and email, even though the price of her work was a set flat rate (rather than time based). Her explanation of my estate plan was very clear, and she made sure I was comfortable with all of the documents. I was very pleased with Zisl’s knowledge of estate planning and special needs trusts and her professionalism.

She is a great trouble shooter and has been adept at spotting and solving problems

My attorney, Zisl Edelson, provided me with excellent guidance for my estate plan, and related financial matters. She is a great trouble shooter and has been adept at spotting and solving problems I didn’t even know I had. Ms. Edelson is also a kind and caring person. Ms. Edelson made the estate planning process enjoyable, even though it was pretty much the last thing I wanted to do. I knew I had to finally take care of it and get it done for my children. Zisl made the estate planning process much easier than I ever thought it would be. I’m so glad I finally stopped procrastinating and got my estate plan done.

I can tell she is passionate about what she does, and she truly made a difference for us

I was referred to Zisl on behalf of my father-in-law who was diagnosed with ALS. I was so nervous when I called, because I wasn’t sure what type of attorney we needed, and I didn’t know exactly how to explain my unique situation. Zisl was so nice and patient while I explained the situation, and she knew exactly what we needed. She took the time to listen to my concerns and referred me to another attorney that was much closer to my father-in-law. She even emailed me the next day with a list of resources and wanted to follow up to make sure I was able to get in contact with the other attorney. I can tell she is passionate about what she does, and she truly made a difference for us. Thank you, Zisl!

C.H.

The end result was professional and easy to understand

Outstanding experience! I worked with Zisl Edelson to formulate a new and updated will. She was sensitive, compassionate, and wonderful to work with — as well as intelligent and educational. She gently made suggestions for wording any bequests to my children in kinder ways to avoid any implied favoritism. I really appreciated her input which we implemented in the document. The end result was professional and easy to understand. The pain of losing a mother is difficult enough without a child feeling any guilt regarding anything remaining from her lifetime. I appreciate the time and effort she gave me to gather information and would highly recommend her to anyone.

C.B.

Zisl was very caring and made sure my mom understood everything

Zisl worked on a couple of legal documents for my mom. The feedback from my mom was that Zisl was very caring, made sure my mom understood everything, paid careful attention to my mom’s needs, and provided very personalized care. My mom described the overall experience of working with Zisl as excellent. She came away extremely, extremely pleased.

L.G.

Zisl was not only an excellent lawyer, but a caring person

I highly recommend attorney Zisl Edelson for elder law, estate planning, and special needs. We called her from out of town to help when our disabled brother was about to receive an inheritance. She set up a special needs trust for him, so he could stay on Medicaid. Zisl’s fees were reasonable, and she was very responsive and knowledgeable. Zisl was not only an excellent lawyer, but a caring person.

Working with her was such a pleasure

Zisl Edelson did my most recent Estate Planning/Will. Working with her was such a pleasure — she is so professional in every area. She even “gently” suggested rewording some of the verbiage to be absolutely certain that my children would ALL feel loved after I leave this world. What a sensitive caring lady! I really appreciate everything she did for me. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
