This Week’s Craft Talk
Chuck Shreffler of Shreffler Law, Ltd. (www.chucklaw.com) has practiced law for over 30 years in the Twin Cities community. He is an experienced trial lawyer for civil (non-criminal) cases involving business, contract, and shareholder disputes. He continues to handle such disputes, while now directing his practice toward clients needing the wisdom and breadth of a seasoned generalist legal advisor.
His changing focus includes building expertise to advise clients on their estate planning concerns, whether that means preparing wills and related documents, sophisticated planning with trusts, revocable or irrevocable, or advising on medical assistance and asset protection needs for elderly clients and their families.
Chuck serves all community members regardless of marital status or sexual orientation and seeks to treat everyone he works with-clients, attorneys, opposing parties-with dignity. He believes we are all created in God’s image, and dignity and respect are everyone’s birthright.
