I have used Chris Lindsay for several years to establish plans for myself, my husband and my mother. I find Chris to be extremely knowledgeable and when faced with an issue he does not handle, he has always referred me to a very excellent source.

Chris always has his clients interest at heart as evidenced when my mother was making changes to her estate plan. He made sure she wanted the changes and wasn't being coerced by her children. I really respect him for that.

I would and have recommended Chris and his firm to anyone requiring his type of service. I must not forget his staff who have always been very kind and helpful.

We are very satisfied with the results and highly recommend others use his services.

Beginning in 2002 with a referral from a lawyer friend of ours, my wife and I did our trusts.

I would not hesitate to recommend him.

I met with Chris for advice on protecting my assets and avoiding costs associated with the probate process. I also needed a guarantee that my health care directives would be followed should I not be able to make those decisions on my own. After sitting with Chris for a short time I knew I had found the person who could walk me through the steps needed to assure my wishes were followed. I found Chris to be patient, detailed and knowledgeable. With just two appointments my Trust was developed and put in place. I now have confidence that my future medical needs will be met and my financial directives will be followed.

My husband and I highly recommend Estate Planning & Elder Law Services. We initially met with Christopher Lindsay, Attorney, who clearly explained our options for estate planning. We chose to create a Family Trust, and Mr. Lindsay efficiently and professionally gathered all of our information to do that. He was very patient with us and answered all of our questions. After he and his staff had created the documents we needed to sign, we met with Margaret M. Lindauer, Attorney to accomplish that. Margaret came to our meeting fully prepared. As she guided us through the documents in the Trust, she answered all of our questions clearly and concisely. She then explained the next steps we needed to take to fund the Trust. Throughout this whole process Margaret was very knowledgeable, professional, patient, and friendly. We left feeling like a great weight had been lifted from our shoulders, knowing that upon our demise, our assets would be distributed according to our wishes.

– Joan Hayes

Margaret has been amazing in walking me through an incredibly difficult time. She has made the probate and estate-planning process easy to understand. She's been incredibly accommodating with my schedule and 4 year old son. She's knowledgeable, professional and kind. I highly recommend working with her. The staff in the rest of the office also seem wonderful, though I haven't had much interaction other than helping to entertain my son.
