What Do Others Say?
I hired Rachel to write up my estate plan, including a Supplemental Needs Trust for one of my sons who has autism. She did an amazing job in a timely fashion. Not only that, but she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She listened with empathy, made me feel 100% comfortable with sharing all my personal financial (and even some emotional) details with her, and worked really hard to fulfill MY goals as a client. I've since been recommending her to my family and friends whenever I have the opportunity. I will also say that there were some complexities to my situation (a relatively recent divorce, young children, the special needs considerations...) plus I'm a fellow detail- oriented lawyer, so I posed a number of legal questions to Rachel. She responded to each one as only the best of best professionals do: clearly answering and explaining what she knows right away, and recognizing what she does not know offhand and needs to research. In the end, she answered all my questions timely and thoroughly. She couldn't me more trustworthy, diligent, and reliable. I highly recommend Rachel!
Recently, my elderly parents from North Dakota began declining in health and needed to reach out to the family for additional support. They moved in with me and it quickly became apparent that I would need to have the power to help them pay bills, write checks, and complete their taxes. In addition to this, I was busy trying to establish continued care and having access to their medical information was critical. I reached out to my network of friends and was given Rachel Schromen’s contact information. I was informed that she would be attentive to all my family’s needs and not focused on high-pressure marketing to sell us on her services.
My initial call to Rachel illustrated that what I was told was accurate. She spent time asking questions, engaging with us and our family’s situation. In fact, my parents were celebrating their 60th anniversary, and Rachel surprised us all with a call on the actual day to congratulate them. My parents have mobility issues and Rachel graciously offered to travel to our home to meet with them. In addition, Rachel offered to review their will and health care directive paperwork to ensure that all their documents were in order. She continually provided us with options throughout the process including trusted resources that may be needed as their needs progress. To save on cost she emailed me a questionnaire to fill out and send back to her once we completed it. Once the legal paperwork was completed, she called me to set-up a time that was convenient for us; which ended up being on a Saturday. Prior to Rachel’s arrival, we were wondering what the final bill was going to be with such superior service. As promised, we were billed the amount that Rachel quoted us initially.
Overall, I am very pleased with Rachel’s excellent services and support. I would highly recommend her to others facing similar circumstances, who are looking for trustworthy, reliable and expedient help.
Rachel is the consummate professional-- she gets back to you quickly, she frets over details, and most of all, she is welcoming and genuinely cares about you as her client. I'm an attorney and have the choice of many different attorneys to prepare my estate plan; above everyone else, I chose Rachel. I recommend Rachel and her services to the highest degree possible.Ellie K.
My husband and I worked with Rachel recently on the drafting and execution of our wills, powers of attorney, and healthcare directives. Rachel was prompt, professional, responsive and articulate adeptly assessing and addressing our needs. Based upon her advice and experience, we also chose create trusts for our son and future children. Beyond Rachel’s professional manner, she also took the time to get to know us as well as share some of her background and life experience. We have no reservations providing this reference and would highly recommend Rachel to friends, cohorts, and family.
We were very happy with the level of professionalism and caring that we received. Rachel even came to us! It's also good knowing that the multitude of issues we needed addressed were done so with minimal effort on our part.
Rachel is wonderful to work with. She helped us evaluate our estate planning needs and turned around all of our documents very quickly. She is an excellent listener, and doesn't rush you through the process. I tell everyone I know about her, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to all my friends and family.
Rachel was amazing to work with. She pulled together last minute documents for my father as he was unexpectedly admitted to hospice. She was kind and understanding of our needs and made things easy for us during a difficult time.Jessica S.
Rachel did a great job of helping us set up our will and trust. She answered my many questions and helped us think of everything we need to feel good about what will happen if the unthinkable happens! Thanks, Rachel!
I hired Rachel Therese Schromen to draft estate planning documents, including a will and power of attorney. She was very clear in her communication and was easy to get a hold of to consult with. Met in person twice, initial meeting and a document signing. She made the process easy and helped me understand when and how to use these documents.
