Neil has been awesome with helping me deal with my sister’s estate. Neil had been in the process of rewriting her revocable trust, but as she put him off frequently, she did not sign it before her death. To say she left problems is an understatement. Neil has been great helping me navigate all the issues, that are many, as they arise. He gets back to me quickly via email and phone, despite the fact I am in Illinois and in a different time zone. Her estate/trust is not resolved yet, but I would not have gotten this far with it in such a short time without the guidance and help from Neil. I look forward to finishing the whole process with him. He is especially good in helping me deal with the attitudes of the beneficiaries, of which I am not one. He is great all the way around.
The attorneys at Luhrsen Goldberg are top notch. This firm handled all of my estate planning for my family (Will/Advanced Directives/Living Will) from start to finish. They constantly communicate via phone/email, have reasonable rates and make themselves readily available to answer any questions along the way. It is with the utmost respect I highly recommend Luhrsen Goldberg for your legal needs.

I had Neil Lyons help me with a guardianship situation that I had been to three attorneys before him. They all told me it was complicated and would take a while. Neil resolved this issue for me quickly and in one court date! I give him a five-star rating because he was friendly, knowledgable, and diligent about resolving my matter for me. You will not be sorry you hired him!
I hired Neil to assist me in petitioning the court seeking guardianship of my mother. Neil did an excellent job in representing me throughout the process. More importantly, Neil explained the process, the milestones, the possible roadblocks, and how we would handle them. After successfully being appointed guardian, Neil assisted me with filing the initial inventory and plan. Finally, he represented me in an unlawful detainer action to remove a dead-beat relative from my mother’s house. Excellent work, excellent counsel, excellent advice.
Julie S. Luhrsen is a conscientious, responsive and thorough attorney. I was most pleased with the prompt and conscientious involvement in the resolution of my auto accident on 8-30-11. She was always available and accessible when I felt uncomfortable and worried about my case. I cannot express how much my life has improved since my recovery from the terrifying accident in which I was involved. Thank you, Julie!
Christina and staff have always been kind, helpful and responsive. I’d recommend them to anyone who is looking for a firm that cares about the person even more than the case itself.
Julie was wonderful to work with. She followed up and executed my case with ease and professionalism.
During and after, you don’t know how you will react in that situation, and there are so many things to think about. Medical bills, missing work, what will happen with the insurance. I didn’t know how we would afford all the medical bills, and they just kept coming. There was so much stress coming at me from so many angles, I couldn’t handle it on my own, and I still hurt so bad.
When I called Christina. From the very first phone call, Christina put my mind at ease. I could feel how much Christina cared, and I knew I could trust her. I cried, because I knew, with her help, it would all be OK.
Every step of the way she was right there with me. At the hospital, all the doctors, specialists, therapists … all the insurance and legal stuff … Christina took care of all the craziness, so I could focus on the big picture – my health and safety and taking care of my little girl.
Through the process, she took all the stress off my shoulders. No matter what it was, she took care of it. Now, looking ahead, I feel great about where things are going. Because of Christina, I was able to put my life back together without having to worry.
In an effort to reduce the pain, I visited a chiropractor. The chiropractor made two recommendations: they suggested I make an appointment with an orthopedist, and that I call Christina Goldberg.
The orthopedist diagnosed a tear in my biceps tendon as well as an injury in my left shoulder that left me unable to raise my arm … I was just hurting so much!
Christina was such a comfort. She was so friendly, so compassionate, I felt like she knew me as a person. She never treated me as ‘just a client.’
Christina made sure I knew what to expect at every stage of this process … you can just tell she and her team were working for you, committed to getting you the best possible result. Any time I had a question, all I had to do was call or email, and some at their office was quick to respond.
Christina had to negotiate with both insurance companies. She got the other driver’s insurance company to pay for the damages to my car, and she got my insurance company to take care of all my injuries and related health issues. She was absolutely tireless, staying on top of both companies to make sure my interests were protected.
To think what would have happened if I had not been referred to call Christina, if I would have tried to deal with the pain and the doctors and the insurance companies myself. I would have had no idea where to start. The surgery alone cost $25,000! I would have never been able to pay for that. I’m retired. This happened to me in my 70s. It could have taken all my savings and cleaned me out to stop the hurting. But Christina went over and above. She never gave up on me, and she got me completely taken care of.
She had been texting and driving and just didn’t see me. In the accident, my knee was slammed against the inside of the center console so hard I ended up needing a total knee replacement.
Initially, I tried to tough it out, to look at other options, but the pain in my knee was so severe I just couldn’t take it anymore. They ask you about pain on a scale of one to ten? I was at a ten-plus for weeks. During the process with my medical care, they tried to say a pre-existing knee condition contributed to the injury, but Christina would not let it go. She just told me ‘Don’t worry about it, I got this,’ and you know what? She absolutely did!
At one point, I had to go back home to Michigan, and I thought that would be a problem having to deal with all my medical care, the surgery, recovery and everything. Nope. Christina said, ‘We’re still right here with you,’ so it was no big deal. I was able to go back home, get the medical work I needed done there. Even though I was on the other side of the country, it really felt like she was right there. The communication with her and her staff was outstanding, always there when I had a question or a concern, or if there were any issues with receiving the care I needed.
When I think about all the pain I was in, all the decisions that had to be made both in Florida and in Michigan, I’m so glad I had Christina on my side. I didn’t have to worry about a thing but getting better, because whatever came up – insurance issues, doctor problems, medical bills, whatever – I just sent it to Christina, and she took care of it.
Plus, the settlement turned out to be way better than I anticipated.
My neighbor recommended Julie Luhrsen because she had helped her after an accident.
I’m so glad I called Julie. We really had to fight to be compensated for my injuries. Julie was there with me through the whole process. She answered all my questions, and she never stopped fighting for me.
Honestly, if I had tried to go through this process without Julie, it would have been a nightmare. With so many doctors, the bills just kept coming. The paperwork began stacking up, and I started to really worry because I couldn’t keep track of everything. On top of that, the ER and the hospital overcharged me, which I didn’t realize at the time. Thankfully, Julie handled everything, which included going through all the bills. She discovered that I was being overcharged.
Julie’s careful work saved me thousands. Not only that, but Julie made sure I did everything exactly right, all the t’s crossed and I’s dotted in the way that would get me the biggest settlement possible. She also made sure I received the best chiropractic care, and she worked with the doctors to keep my costs down so I would have all the benefits I needed to get better.
During the whole process, Julie and her staff were so personable and attentive. I didn’t expect an attorney to be so warm and friendly, someone I would enjoy talking with. You can tell she sincerely cares. If you’re in an accident, you want someone you can trust, someone who will work in your best interest. That’s Julie.
I had no idea what to do next, no clue on how to start the process of healing and putting my life back together. I was scared, hurting and confused. I knew I needed to do something legally to get help. But, as a young woman, very unfamiliar with the legal system, I knew I could easily be taken advantage of … and I wasn’t about to get played.
Then a friend recommended Julie Luhrsen. From the first meeting, I was completely comfortable, totally at ease. I had no idea what a relief Julie would bring me.
She literally took care of everything.
If I didn’t have Julie, I’d probably still be trying to figure everything out a year later. What to do about insurance, medical bills, doctors’ appointments … work … driving … there’s just so much you don’t think about until you’re in that situation.
With Julie, I talked to the insurance company exactly once, gave my statement on a three-way call with her on the line. That was it. She took care of everything else. Amazing!
Julie and her staff were persistent, helpful, answered all my questions immediately, and they stayed with me every step of the way. Thank you, Julie!
