The case did indeed end in my favor; however, it would have been surprising to have not had guardianship granted. Initially, as with most attorneys, he was friendly and responsive - I am sorry to say that did not last very long. His office staff was even less friendly, responsive, helpful, or, most importantly, detail-oriented. Of course, as they are whom one deals with most frequently, this was most disappointing.
I have been David's client for a number of years. I was referred to him by another lawyer because of his belief that David possessed the necessary skills and expertise to address certain issues regarding a Special Needs Trust established by my mother for the benefit of her handicapped daughter, my sister. David exceeded my expectations as he successfully navigated through the complexities of the trust and brought all matters to a successful and amicable conclusion. In addition he demonstrated excellent people skills when he worked with all parties involved in the matter. He was very professional. If someone is seeking a lawyer who has the necessary skills and expertise in elder law and special needs I can highly recommend David.
David helped our parents, dad 84 and mom 83, qualify for Medicaid after our father had a stroke. We were told by a discharge planner at the hospital to find a nursing home, not to much else. My financial advisor referred me to David to help sort out what we needed to know about his Medicare benefits and whether they could qualify for nursing home Medicaid. David met with us immediately when I told him how worried my mother was. He is extremely knowledgeable, gentle, and made sure my mother understood pretty technical information. With his help, my father qualified for Medicaid immediately after his skilled rehab care ended and Medicare stopped covering his nursing home expenses. His paralegal, Gerry Nelms is also terrific. Always kept us informed about the progress of dad's benefits applications and everything was approved exactly as David advised!
Thanks to his help, we're now working toward having dad come home once Medicaid home care is available.
