I worked with 5-6 lawyers in the last few months. In my opinion, John Callinan is the #1 Eldercare Lawyer. He helped my mom and dad. He is caring and has a great support staff. He was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone in need of an eldercare attorney.

Our family hired Mr. Callinan when it became clear our mother was declining from Alzheimers and would need to placed in a home with 24/7 care. We recently completed the process of getting mom qualified for medicare. This was a long and complicated process. Mr. Callinan was very patient with us as we had many questions and we often needed to call him for new questions or clarifications. We had several meetings in his office along with our financial advisor and he always answered all our questions and kept us informed all through the process. He sent his knowledgeable assistant to accompany us when we met with the County social worker. My dad will now remain financially secure and my mother is being well cared for in the nursing home. We would recommend Mr. Callinan for elder care services.

Enlisted John Callinan's services first as my Dad's elder care lawyer on a recommendation from a friend of my brother’s. He helped my dad with a will and much needed advice at his age.
The following year, my dad passed away and we again called John to handle the estate legalities as I was named executrix. He guided me through all the steps that the title required of me. He also was on hand to help with the legal end of the sale of dad's home.
It was just about a full year (a very tense year) before everything was settled. And John and his very professional staff were there for every turn. I had many questions, and they were answered or addressed quickly. He returned phone calls and emails in a timely manner (once, I think he was on vacation). He is very thorough, making sure everything is done right.
From the beginning, my Dad, and subsequently, I were treated with respect and genuine concern.
I’m glad we followed the recommendation we got to call John Callinan and would definitely recommend him to anyone, and wouldn't hesitate to call him again.too.

Dear John, I would like to thank you for all your help and understanding as I donâ€™t know what I would have done without it. Your knowledge and skill were really appreciated on my wifeâ€™s passing. I congratulate you for all that and say thank you once more.

John helped me a great deal with my uncle's estate. He was very understanding and explaned everything in language that iwas easily understood. If I had any questions, he was ALWAYS available to answer them. His professionalism is unsurpassed. John made a very difficult situation easier to handle. Without his help, I don't know what I would have done.

I have used John Callinan on two occassions. Both experiences were positive and enlightening. John was able to provide us with a wealth of information that allowed us to make the most effective choices. Without him, our end result would have looked extremely different. The knowledge he has in elder care law is unsurpassed.

Mr. Callinan helped my mother with her estate planning needs and with protecting her assets from possible long-term care costs. He thoroughly explained his documents to my mother and put her mind at ease. We found him to be professional, prompt, and reasonably priced. Mr. Callinan continues to send us his quarterly newsletter, which keeps us apprised of the laws affecting the elderly.
