My husband and I recently made use of Ronald Stiskin’s services to draw up wills, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Proxies, and a Special Needs Trust. Mr. Stiskin is the consummate professional. He took our needs as seriously as those of people with much larger, more complicated estates, paying careful attention to each detail. He scheduled meetings around our time schedule, rather than expect us to work around his office hours. He was recommended to us by a friend. We will be recommending his services to our friends, relatives, and colleagues.
It is my pleasure to recommend Ron Stiskin, an exceptional special education attorney and special needs trust planner/attorney. I met Ron several years ago, as I was feverishly searching for a pro bono attorney for a young teen with a rare disability. After a suggestion to search the COPAA web site, I easily reached Ron, and his response to my request was an immediate “yes”. Ron worked with a team including a cognitive scientist, educational consultant, speech pathologist, as well as other professionals. Thanks to Ron this teen is now in her second year of private school. This victory was in a school district notorious for the answer “no”, “we have no money”. When I thanked Ron, he told me the work was thanks enough.
I have also referred a close friend to Ron who required special needs trust planning. She was very pleased with Ron’s professional skills and sensitive approach to his clients. I recommend my clients/acquaintances to Ron Stiskin without hesitation. I am proud to call him a colleague.
You were very helpful, thoughtful, knowledgeable and patient. I would also mention your patience and kindness in handling our affairs, your coming to meet our senior mother in her own home, and sensitivity to her needs. Your calmness and ease and gentleness in what could have been a difficult conversation, and last but not least, your continued support and timely responses to our many questions.
