I found Helayne Levy and A Practice With Purpose after doing an online search for an elder law attorney with expertise in, among other things, estate planning.
I wanted a lawyer who was passionate about the work and excelled at it; a ‘player’ in the field, not just a reporter on the sidelines. I also needed someone I felt comfortable with and could trust. Peer reviews, affiliations and her credentials confirmed the first set of conditions – a personal visit confirmed the latter.
Within 30 minutes of my first meeting with Helayne I was sold. She is not only extremely knowledgeable of NC law but veterans rights as well; and is a warm, caring, considerate and perceptive woman with a brilliant mind. She asks all the pertinent questions and somehow manages to turn the information she’s given into options and recommendations from which legal documents bloom.
Several weeks later, our estate planning efforts are done, but she remains as responsive to my interests today as she was on day one. How fortunate I am that I didn’t stop at the first name returned by my online search.

The Elder Law & Life Care Planning Center was retained to oversee the care of both of my parents. Since I live 750 miles away it was important to obtain a firm that I had complete trust and faith in. That trust and faith was obtained from the first phone call and continues to this day. With the compassion they show and the level of detail applied to any issue they are dealing with it has made us feel as if we were their only client. I have had the opportunity to meet the staff in-person, most recently with other family members who have never spoken to or met the staff, and after that first meeting they too were impressed, stating they felt the entire staff paid attention and listened to what was said and genuinely cared about issues being discussed. Note also, the center does not jump to conclusions, they thoroughly investigate and perform fact-finding before any decision or options are presented. I am not quite ready to retire, but retiring to this area to be able to retain the services of the center for my own use is a viable option.

My wife, her parents, and I moved from Vermont to North Carolina a little over a year ago in need of an Attorney to prepare an end of life strategy for my father- and mother-in-law. We were new to Wilmington with no local family or friends and unsure who to contact for elder care law services. After a recommendation from our Realtor, we contacted Helayne. From the initial interview, we were impressed by her knowledge and approach and felt she would be a good choice. Since then, we’re happy to say that Helayne has far exceeded our expectations by providing the expert legal guidance we needed to prepare a complete end of life plan including will, power of attorney, health care plan, and trust. What impresses us the most about Helayne is her strong knowledge of the law, tenacious commitment to protect our interests, amazing responsiveness to questions, and a special knack to make complex law and end of life scenarios easy to understand. But what truly distinguishes and endears us to Helayne is the way she cares about people. She is genuinely interested in how we’re doing and makes us feel like we’re the most important part of her day. We feel like family when we meet with her. We’re always warmly welcomed and enjoy every get-together. She is such a pleasure to work with. We know we’re in good hands and consider ourselves fortunate to have chosen her. If you’re in need of elder care law services, we enthusiastically recommend Helayne as the absolute best choice!

Helayne Levy is someone skilled enough to navigate the ins and outs of elder law but personal enough to make one want her as a friend! I came in to get the traditional will and power of attorney "legal stuff" taken care of but left with so much more. Helayne guides and teaches as she helps her clients navigate the landscape of elder care options. She addresses the difficult topics surrounding aging such as becoming incapacitated and how to ensure your wishes are carried out if that should happen. Helayne's thoughtful and purposeful approach to elder care planning and decision making is one that I recommend everyone expriences. She will help you get prepared mentally and legally for the process of aging and ensure that the appropriate legal documents are in place.

From the first time we met with Helayne Levy about pursuing long-term care for my father she helped put our minds at ease. She has been so knowledgeable about helping us coordinate public and private resources to finance the cost of his care. I feel confident in recommending the services of Helayne Levy as we have always found her easy to work with and always willing to discuss any concerns and respond to all of our questions.

My wife and I recently engaged Helayne Levy to revise our wills and other end-of-life documents. We found her to be knowledgeable, thorough, and professional in every way. Moreover, and perhaps most important, she was caring, personable, and meticulous, making sure that she understood our needs and that we fully comprehended what she proposed. Even though her formal work on our documents has been completed, she has contacted us to determine if we have followed through on some items on which we had mutually agreed. We heartily recommend Helayne Levy as an attorney specializing in Elder Law.

Attorney Levy brings to the table a special care for her clients that can only come from one who is true to the heart. Add to that her personal determination to serve her clients to the best of her ability and her advanced education in elder law (an L.LM from Stetson) and you have a combination in one person that is simply breathtaking. Any client would be blessed to have her as counsel.
