    At age 70, I have met a few people who I will be grateful for forever. Attorney Doug Chalgian is one. He was immediately responsive, kind, strong, knowledgeable and successful handling my contentious, out-of-state dispute with my sister over our mother. Yes, sister kidnapped mom and initiated "emergency" action to take over her decisions and money. So sad. I lost my relationship with my only sibling, but not the right to care for mom, as she had stipulated in her will. Thank you, Doug!

    Review for Douglas G. Chalgian on 05/31/13 in Elder Law

    Doug was able to advise us on our problem and recommended that we take no immediate action which ended up being the proper advice.

    To summarize, the Chalgian law firm did not provide the representation that I would expect from a firm that represent themselves as leaders in the area of probate law. I received incorrect legal advice, they did a poor job in preparing for an appeal, Atty Chalgian dumped the case on a junior attorney, and then they Quit! Atty. Chalgian's representation cost me six figures, and then I was his with over $50K in costs from the Michigan probate court.

    The firm of Chalgian & Tripp severely misguided our family in our parents nursing home medicaid application and process. They argued with DHS over medicaid law for over a year, created a huge debt, told us the entire time that they would win the case. After over $100,000.00 in nursing home debt accumulated, they lost all their appeals and left our family with the debt. A very, very disappointing experience, especially while caring for 2 aging parents at the same time. So saddened by their profes

    I've known John for many years in my work with him on Probate Council for the State Bar of Michigan. In addition, I have had the privilege of working with him on several mutual client matters. John has very high ethical standards and is a very knowledgeable attorney. I wouldn't hesitate to refer work to him.
