Laura A. Jeltema
I firmly believe that being a good listener is crucial to being a good estate planning lawyer. When meeting with a client, I don’t rush to interject my opinion. I ask questions to elicit revealing answers, listen closely and absorb what they’re telling me about their circumstances and concerns. By hearing and understanding their big-picture perspective, I can approach issues from many different angles and draw on my extensive experience and knowledge to craft creative strategies that address problems in the most optimal way.
