I had the distinct pleasure of meeting with Attorney Marco Schiavo with my ailing mother to put her affairs in order. He put us both at ease with his welcoming demeanor. His professionalism was top notched and he treated us with respect and dignity. Attorney Schiavo had presented several scenarios and provided recommendations for protecting my mother’s assets…all part of the free consultation which lasted over an hour. At the end of the consultation, he did not pressure us to move forward and was happy to just give us information. Because of this, we decided to move forward with his recommendations and look forward to working with him through this process.
I recently completed my estate planning with Marco, and he made it quite easy and painless. He was very patient with my questions (I learned a lot during the process) and the final product, complete with binder as well as everything on thumb drive, was so professional. I definitely recommend Marco and his firm!
I have recently worked with Marco on Estate Planning matters and found him to be very professional, knowledgeable and thorough. Estate planning can be very complicated and confusing, but Marco has been able to reduce things down to understandable terms so that I know what to do to preserve and manage my mother’s financial affairs. He presented us with all options available so we could assess and weigh our options and move in the right direction. Marco has a calm and assuring demeanor that makes you feel comfortable. The presentation of the final materials speak volumes to the level of attention to detail that Marco puts into his work. My mother says he is “the man who knows everything!
Simmons & Schiavo, LLP and Marco, specifically, have handled estate planning matters for several of my family members. I cannot say enough positive things about him. He is detail oriented, meticulous and down to earth. He takes the time to explain complex matters in a way that is easy to understand and is so patient when fielding the endless questions that come with complex estate planning matters. During the course of planning I felt Marco honestly wanted to help my family and make sure that everyone was comfortable with their decisions. I would, and have, recommended Marco to anyone looking for estate planning assistance.
My wife and I just had the pleasure of working with Attorney Marco Schiavo. Wow! What an amazing experience. It all began when we placed a phone call after hours and we actually received a call back from this attorney the following morning. There was no pressure but he just asked what we needed legal help with. He was flexible and really accommodated our working schedules. During the appointment, he explained things in plain English and allowed us enough time to ask questions. He was very personable and appeared to be a great family man who had his priorities straight (asked if we could switch our next schedule so we did not have to meet him on his anniversary date- Kudos to him! because in today’s busy world, it is easy to forget what truly matters). We have since called him again with more questions and yes he continues to return our calls. We would like to say Thank you and we would highly recommend our family and friends to him.
