Attorney Allaire and his staff helped us navigate caring for an elderly family member and securing Title 19. Staff visited the nursing home multiple times, and followed up on any questions to ensure our Mom was well cared for for the rest of her life. We are grateful for the assistance which we could not have done alone.

I visited Allaire Elder Law to prepare a will after signing with another Medicaid title 19 prep service for my wife's ongoing illness.
During my initial interview, Mr. Allaire's insightful questions and comments impressed me to the point that I immediately retained his firm in place of my previous choice for title 19 application preparation. I have no regrets.
The Allaire Elder Law team more than fulfilled my expectations in preparing and quickly obtaining approval for Medicaid title 19 benefits for my wife.
They guided me in gathering data with easy to follow instructions and tasks. The whole Allaire Elder Law team was most patient with my excessive anxieties & questions and answered all my queries in layman's terms, not legalese mumbo jumbo.
I unhesitatingly recommend the Allaire Elder Law firm to anyone needing title 19 application guidance, preparation and submission.

I never thought I would be in the position of this magnitude before April 12th, 2015. My father was diagnosed with dementia and he was rapid deterioration was so sad. I needed help and guidance, and found it. Through all of this I have become a professional in obtaining information, documentation and paperwork needed. I would even be happy to tell my story to future clients it was not an easy road but well worth it. Thank you.

Steve and his staff worked with me to apply for Title 19 Medicaid. We hired him right away after the first interview which was the day after we called. It was the best route to take and we are very pleased with the hard work and persistence. The state approval was granted only a few weeks after they submitted the forms and tons of backup data that was required.

I hired the Allaire Elder Law team to help with the complicated Title 19 application as well as the probate court filings for my father. From the first consultation to the final filings they have been very professional, caring and easy to work with. The filings can be rather complex and it is comforting to have a team behind you that fully understands the process and cares about all parties involved. I highly recommend them.

Mr. Allaire and his wonderful staff helped our family during a time of great need and a situation with which we had little knowledge. My Dad was diagnosed with a degenerative disease and was moving to Connecticut from New York to live closer to me. We needed help in finding appropriate care, changing the type of appropriate care as his health declines, going through the arduous task of completing a Medicaid application and preserving as much of his estate as we can. Mr. Allaire provided us with thoughtful solutions and educated us as well. The fee we paid was well worth it. Mr. Allaire saved us his fee many times over.
Mr. Allaire's staff provides a service like none other. Phone calls and emails were returned immediately. Each member of the staff has been respectful, knowledgeable and professional. They become part of the family.
I cannot imagine what we would have done without the advice of Mr. Allaire and his staff.

We needed to put my mother on Title 19. We had a lot of questions and Attorney Allaire provided thorough, concise answers. When it came to getting all of the paperwork done, he and his extrememly knowledgable staff made the entire process easy and efficient. They know exactly what to do and when to do it. Had it not been for attorney Allaire we would have more than likely lost most of the equity in our home. My entire family is ectremely gratefule for Attorney Allaire's assistance, we will definietly be using him for any of our additional elder care law needs.

I've know Steve for many years and my husband and I have used him to prepare our wills and power of attorney. When my Mother started to fail in the apartment she was living in, and I knew it was time to move her to a place that provide more, I turned to Steve and his team for help. I work full time and the thought of trying to figure out what was best for Mom's care and how to pay for it was daunting. Steve and his team assessed her physical and financial situation and we ended up filing for Title 19. Mom was approved 2 weeks ago and now has a home health aid and a Visiting Nurse. I could not image having to go through the process without the help of Steve and his team!

As a primary caregiver to my father-in-law, I was increasingly concerned that my family would be put in dire straights by the immense financial burden associated with both health care and nursing home expenses. Fortunately, I was alerted to the services that Attorney Allaire provided through a weekly column that he wrote in our local newspaper. We scheduled an initial consultation appointment with the Attorney to discuss the background of our dilemma. He listened intently and immediately put us at ease by offering a detailed game plan to assist our family in preserving key assets which would insure an adequate and comfortable lifestyle for my father-in-law. Attorney Allaire and his remarkable staff would not disappoint. After hiring the Attorney to represent us, his team of professionals immediately went to work in a tireless fashion helping us navigate the complexity of both state and federal regulations. Actually, the Attorney and his staff performed all of the heavy lifting, oftentimes simply asking for our signature on certain documents from time to time. Member's of his staff kept us updated at every turn and left us feeling confident and informed throughout the entire process. During important mandatory meetings with administrators at a nursing home/rehab facility, the Attorney assured that a staff member from his office was always in attendance representing our family's best interest. The end result is that Attorney Allaire and his team gave my father-in-law (and our family) a financial peace as he guided us through a relatively seamless process in procuring Medicaid and a comfortable existence in a senior living community. There is no way we could have navigated this entire process alone. His one year Lifecare program proved invaluable to our family and I would wholehearted recommend him to anyone in a similar situation without hesitation.
