Kevin's Life Planning law Firm provided me a total solution to the many problems , that I was suddenly responsible for , when my estranged/poor 84 year old Sister ( no other living family) suddenly fell into dementia in Florida ( I live in California ) and was no longer able to take care of herself or make decisions.
Kevin's team provided the skills and services that enabled my Sister to get into an excellent Florida nursing home and provided me a representative to assure that all is well there. Also and most important,Kevin's team got medicaid approved to pay for all her medical expenses, which I was extremely worried about, since this process is complex , time consuming and lengthy with no certainty of approval.
In conclusion , this team got my Sister the best result possible on "all fronts" and eliminated a very frightening medical , financial and on going care responsibility from my shoulders.

contacted Kevin Pillion and his Law Firm on two separate occasions, after he was recommended by one of my neighbors, who is a high-ranking officer in the local Police Force, and used Kevin's services for the Life Planning needs of his own aging parents.
On both occasions, Mr. Pillion's immediate responsiveness, trustworthiness and deep knowledge of the subject matters, which had to do with establishing a Last Will in record time in the first case, due to a sudden health threat, and replacing it by a Living Will the next year, after the danger of sudden death had passed, impressed me the most.
Both documents were prepared with great care to all sorts of details I had not even thought about, under the precise questioning of Kevin, who proved to be extremely knowledgeable regarding the subjects at hand.
Over the years, his Life Planning Law Firm has given him plenty of knowledge as an Attorney, and also as a Certified Public Accountant. Considering the service rendered in record time, and the impeccable preparation, precise redaction and printing of both portfolios, who are now in my personal files at home, I consider that the price for each set was very reasonable and above all, they are legally binding and an excellent protection for my estate, keeping me in charge until the very end of life, with a first successor trustee of my choice, who will take over when I become unwilling or unable to serve as Trustee, due to age or incapacitating illness.
Because of Kevin's incredible mind for details and deep knowledge of the subjects at hand, all my affairs are now in order in the most intimate details, from the Advance Health Care Directives and Care Givers phone numbers and addresses posted on the face of my refrigerator in case of gave illness or death, to the orderly disposal of my Estate, and what will go to who.
Absolutely everything is now in place and ready for use upon the death of my body, and I am very grateful I found Kevin Pillion and his Life Planning Law Firm near my home in Sarasota, to sort out and organize all the details!
In each case, I have been able to call Mr. Pillion for free on several occasions to ask for precisions or possible changes regarding each subject matter, and Kevin's suggestions and reminders are also very welcome. I could not be more happy with his expertise honesty and knowledge!

My 92 year old Mother recently entered a skilled nursing home and needed Medicaid assistance to remain there. I am the Son who interviewed other larger regional elder law firms and Medicaid consultants who told me that my Mother's situation was "impossible" to accomplish. Without much help or hope my first application was quickly denied by Medicaid. The bills were mounting and the situation appeared hopeless. Then along came the boutique Life Planning Law Firm who carefully considered my case with its nuances and unique problems. To Kevin and his team of legal and elder law expert pitbulls, my case was a mere bump in the road and it was approved in a matter of easy weeks. The case involved a complex set of circumstances which demanded expertise in various law specialties including Medicaid and elder law, income and estate tax, titling of property, homeowners association, estate planning, marital law, etc.
For any client with an elder law issue of any complexity, the real question is "why would you go anywhere else?". Don't waste your time and resources....talk to the true experts at Life Planning Law Firm.

Mr. Pillion and his staff are very helpful, they informed me of benefits available for my mother I would not have known about. They do whatever they can to assist you in requesting those benefits. Shannon has been especially helpful in that area. Catherine, who serves as an advocate for my mother, goes above and beyond to assist in anyway she can to meet my mother's needs. I would highly recommend this law firm.

Mr. Pillion was recommended to us by Legal Zoom as they could not handle a Living Trust for us that had to include a beneficiary which was a Special Needs child. Mr. Pillion was very responsive to our needs and is very knowledgeable about the subject of Living Trusts and Special Needs children. He continually kept us informed and although we were clear cross the state he always kept in touch, both by phone and e-mail. He clearly explained everything so we could completely understand the aspects of a Living Trust. We are more than satisfied with Mr. Pillion's work and work ethics. He is a very trustworthy individual who I would be proud to call a friend for life. I thank Legal Zoom for recommending Mr. Pillion and I recommend Mr. Pillion for any type of elder care legal issues.

It is my pleasure to submit my evaluation regarding services provided by Atty. Pillion and his staff.
Atty. Pillion directed me in navigating through the "legal maze" of Qualified Income Trusts, Medicaid eligibility as well as assistance with Veteran's Services. The professionalism of his office is exemplary. Inquiries are answered with expertise, accuracy and promptly. I would and have recommended Atty. Pillion, without hesitation.

Kevin helped us with our mother's legal affairs and facilitated her move to a professional nursing care facility. He outlined a plan and explained it to us in advance, detailing all of the matters that needed to be settled or resolved. He provided a timetable for the process and handled all of the issues including the trusts, protection of the real estate assets and all related matters.
At each step, Kevin was thorough and completely professional. When we had questions, he answered each one and explained our alternatives. He was always available to us whenever we needed direction or assistance in the difficult period of transition for our mother.
Kevin's experience and expertise produced a result that exceeded all of our expectations. The family thanks him for all of the hard work.
We heartily recommend him to you.

Little did we know when we enlisted the services of Kevin Pillion's firm how quickly we would need his services to go beyond drawing up new documents. Mr Pillion and his team rapidly jumped into action to secure longterm care for our mother, within two days of the identified need, and continues to represent her as we continue to navigate the legalities of her family taking care of her needs.
For a family that does not live locally, it is comforting to know that the Life Planning Law Firm is there to help us.
