My wife Barbara and I initially went to Tim Morisette at Lampe Law to consolidate our estate documents and Living Wills and HealthCare Directives due to the fact that our previous lawyer had left Northfield and his practice also had left Northfield.
We were both happy with this new situation when we met Tim. He advised us what to do to update some of our documents and also began a major revision of my Health Care Directive to account for a recent change in my health.
For the Health Care Directive Barb and I planned together both a legal document and also one that met our needs for end-of-life decisions. Tim provided a professional and caring environment for some difficult decisions we had to make. Tim helped us in the process and brought in a nursing consultant when needed. He allowed us to work back and forth with him as documents settled into their final form, and then prepared and notarized in the presence of two witnesses the final printed documents for distribution to our hospital and clinic.
We found Tim to be patient, genuine and approachable. He helped us with some difficult personal decisions in a kind and sensitive way as well as one that was legally clear and encompassing.
We highly recommend him.
Thank you to Tim Morisette for your efforts in the successful representation of my daughter this year. As a practicing attorney who has to select outside counsel for representation of clients, I can easily say that your time, legal acumen and personal efforts surpassed all of my expectations and the result was an absolute and 100% win. A grand slam, no less. The fees were less than expected and you and your staff more responsive than anyone I have dealt with in a long time. Congratulations!
We recently needed help with an expungement for a family member and called Lampe Law Group. The first time I spoke with Tim Morisette, I knew he was the right person for the job. Tim’s experience and understanding of the system and relationships with the other folks involved made for a surprisingly smooth process. He got results sooner—and with less effort on our part— than we expected. Throughout the process, he responded promptly and with patience to my questions, and communicated clearly. And he’s a nice guy! Great experience, all around.
We can’t say enough good things about how you (Lance Heisler) handled all this and it has really been great to work with you. You really did make a very difficult time a whole lot easier and we now have our new law firm going forward. THANK YOU from us both.
Maren represented me on a post-decree custody and child support matter. I appreciated the time and thorough attention she gave to my case. I wish she had represented me the first time around!

We have been using the Lampe Law firm for nearly 50 years now. They do an excellent job at everything we needed help with. From my father to our daughter to us. When we walk into the office it is like going to a friend’s house.
They are friendly, personal, professional and very concerned.
We would recommend the Lampe Law Group for any legal services anyone needs.
Thanks Tim, Maren, Jeanette and all others we have worked with. You are all Wonderful.
Had a great experience with Tim Morisette from Lampe Law Group, LLP. Tim agreed to assist with the folks deeding me some land. Things became very complicated at the township level. Costs were going to go way beyond the initial estimate through no fault of Tim. As a result, Tim took on the additional costs himself. It’s that kind of caring and integrity that make working with this law firm a plus to their customers. If you need any sort of legal work done I highly recommend Lampe Law Group!
Mr Morisette has helped us with several legal problems. The first time we had his help was when we were being sued on a property we bought in Dennison. He saw us without an appointment, took a look at the problem, AND solved it without any additional headaches to us. AND he negotiated that we got our retainer refunded!
The second big job he took on for us was involving my Mother’s home. He took care of changing the title after my father died and after my mother died he cleared the title for me.
He has answered questions via email the same day I send a question. He has accommodated office visits on short notice. And several times he has not asked for a fee for his legal opinion. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and I feel like I am talking to a friend who is looking out for my best interest.
I would recommend Mr Morisette (and his wonderful staff) to help with any legal problems anyone would have.

Re: Quality Services!
To the staff at Lampe Law Group,
I am writing to express my gratitude for the professional, kind, and respectful services I receive from Tim Morisette and his staff.
I was impressed by Mr. Morisette from the very first consultation. He was very “down to earth” and approachable. He listened empathetically and patiently, and then gave honest and frank advice. In every legal matter that I have since consulted him on, he has demonstrated integrity in his practice.
Mr. Morisette is quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and has always demonstrated that he has my best interest in mind. Mr. Morisette “walks the walk” of an attorney who truly wants to help people, gives honest legal advice, problem solves at solutions for problems, and provides his services with integrity. I have found that this is a rare quality in today’s world…!
I would also like to commend Mr. Morisette’s legal assistant and other staff for their patience, kindness, and professionalism. They were expedient in returning emails, sending documents digitally, and in returning phone calls if I had questions. This makes quite a difference when a person is walking through a difficult time and the stress and anxiety from the “life experience” is high. Thank you to these fantastic ladies, also!!!
In reiteration, I would highly recommend Mr. Morisette and his staff to others for any legal services. They provide great service and do so with integrity. Thank you once again!!!
Thank you, Maren for handling my divorce. The end of a marriage is never fun, nor easy…but you made the whole process very manageable, humane and done with dignity. When I walked into your office, I had no idea how events would unfold. And by the time we were signed and finished I was so very happy with the outcome. I’m so appreciative for your representation. I told you when I met you that you were my Goldilocks Attorney of all I’d interviewed. ‘Not too hard, not too soft, but just right.’ It was true.
Since moving here five years ago, I have used Tim Morisette in more than one aspect. He always treats me with kindness and dignity. He takes the time to explain to me in ways a person can understand. I would recommend him to anyone.
Dear Maren, thank you so much for your wise and efficient help on my legal matter. It was much appreciated. Thanks also to Michelle – she was so pleasant and helpful.

We want to thank Tim for guiding us through the process of writing our will. It was something we had delayed far too long using the excuses that it would be a long, complicated affair, and that it would be difficult to find an attorney that would appreciate some special circumstances we wanted to address. We were wrong on both counts.
The process was fast and easy, especially considering some non-standard elements of our will. Although the total face-to-face time we spent with Tim was relatively short, the experience was very personal. We felt that we got to know Tim very quickly, and he certainly got to know us. He was patient in listening to our goals for the will, and he provided some very straightforward guidance and solutions. It was clear that we share many of the same values and that too provided us with the reassurance that he understood and affirmed some of the very personal requests that we purposed in our will.
As we reflect back on the experience, we wonder why we delayed so long. Thank you, Tim, again for leading us through the process. We will definitely use your services again in the future, and we will recommend you to our friends.
Maren, I couldn’t have gone through this whole process without your kindness and your sincerity. I know this is your job, but you made things easier. You gave me invaluable advice and steered me in the right direction many times, and you were always professional in doing so.
I noticed your name [in the newspaper and it] gave me an excuse to write and thank you for the wonderful job you did as our lawyer in Northfield. I can’t tell you how much your kindness meant to me at that time. It was a ‘rough’ time in my life. You made everything go smoothly, including the sale of our condo. I can’t thank you enough! You were so GREAT. . . . Keep up the good work! Thank you again for all you did for us.
Having one’s integrity questioned is always distressing. When charges are associated, it shakes one’s personal foundations to the core.
Tim helped me through a very distressing situation. He listened. He questioned. He very skillfully addressed the various issues associated with the complaint. He was supportive, understanding, and helped me wade through the emotional baggage to see and deal with the big picture. We were well prepared for trial. An out-of court settlement was negotiated, and all parties’ concerns were addressed. It was a good option, and it avoided a lengthy (and costly) court proceeding.
Tim was recommended to me because of his background, expertise, and because he was “a good man.” All of this has been shown to be true. He is a good man.
I will seek his guidance in the future for other issues, and highly recommend him as a resource for anyone who needs wise and skillful counsel.
A heartfelt thank you to Tim and his fantastic staff!

Maren steered us through a very difficult and complex lawsuit. Her legal expertise, strong knowledge of governmental workings, commitment to our cause, passion for excellence and political astuteness- all these attributes were at our disposal with her as counsel. Most importantly, Maren represented herself and our interests with integrity and the highest level of professionalism.
Lance, C. and I just wanted to say thanks for all your effort in . . . our bankruptcy. Yesterday, while watching other people’s hearings before ours, we were a bit nervous because the trustee was drilling people pretty intently and it seemed like almost everyone was missing some type of information or paperwork. When we were called up it only took us about 2 minutes and we were done. So, thanks to you for having all of our ducks in a row, so to speak, our hearing was painless. Thanks again!
Maren Swanson has been my divorce attorney for almost two years. She is very dedicated and goes to great lengths for me. I have been very pleased with how she stays closely involved with every detail and is always willing to answer any questions. I would recommend her to anyone needing a family law attorney. She makes you feel very comfortable in everything you do and is right there beside you all the way. As far as attorneys go I would give her an A+++++ and appreciate everything she’s done for me.
Thank you, Maren, to you and your wonderful staff – for all you do.
Maren Swanson represented me in a very difficult divorce. My husband and I had two young sons who were being hurt by the conflict between us. Maren negotiated a good result for me, but even more importantly, she helped me keep my focus on the best interests of my boys and she kept me on track. When all was said and done, I believe the process was the most efficient and least painful it could have been. I highly recommend Maren to anyone going through a divorce.
Maren Swanson has been a personal friend and legal advocate for me, my family and friends for the past 20 years. She represented me in my divorce, responding gracefully to the emotions and respectfully to opposing views. The dissolution proceeded without delay or complication which reduced costs and strife. I have had Maren represent my aging mother as she updated her will, Power of Attorney and Health Care Directive. She was knowledgeable and sensitive in her advice.
Whenever a friend asks what attorney they should see for family, civil or misdemeanor criminal matters, I refer all without hesitation to Maren, Lance or Tim.

A couple of years ago we worked with Lance Heisler on a real estate transaction that had gone sour. I was in a bit of a panic and rather reactive but Lance was very good at helping me see the bigger picture, to be more strategic, and most important, to be more patient. I also really appreciated his ability to mix humor with his professional counsel. That helped when things were tense, and contributed to the personal connection that we felt with him.
While negotiating in our interest, he was very good at standing firm without being antagonistic to the other party. He also was impressive in court, totally in command of the facts of the situation with a style that could almost be called theatrical.
We were very pleased with the outcome of our case and our dealings with Lance. We highly recommend him.
