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.
I was fortunate to have contacted Kevin to assist me with the process of caring for a family member who was terminally ill. We needed to create a Will and other legal documents to allow me to take care of her finances and personal affairs. I needed considerable help with everything. He and his paralegal held my hand ever step of the way. They explained the Medicaid process and assisted me with filing the needed paperwork. They assisted me in opening and maintaining the proper bank accounts to take care of her medical care. They explained what I needed to do about her personal accounts. They answered every question I came up with and always with a smile. They always kept me up to date on everything.
Once my family member had passed, he assisted her surviving sibling by creating a Will and a plan for her future as well. This is especially remarkable because he did this as a "favor" to the family. I can not stress enough how wonderful Kevin and Shannon are. They are knowledgeable, professional and personal! I feel like they are family and I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone in need of high quality legal services!
Finding a competent Lawyer to help with Estate planning, managing, and all the legal understandings that pertain to elder law for my parent, Kevin helped ease my mind with his knowledge. I am comforted beyond my belief as our situation was a bit complicated. Kevin made it possible for me to research my ability to care give this parent to the fullest, and now that parent is happy, and living a greater quality of life, more than I had expected to happen. Kevin helped me focus on what is most important and the priorities that matter in regards to helping my parent thrive towards the quality of life that parent deserves, and had saved for. It is not an easy job to take care of the elderly with needs. What is easy, is working with Kevin and his staff to enjoy this part of my parent's life, just as we all enjoy the birth of new family members, so should be the golden years. It is my opinion that anyone with an aged family member, retain these type of services from a lawyer, such as Kevin Pillion. In fact, I am inspired to do the same with my spouse, planning my future using Kevin's services, to avert the complications before they happen.

The entire staff at Life Planning Law Firm were compassionate, knowledgable and resourceful in helping my family place my mother in a skilled care facility. Medicaid approval was held up due to some personnel changes at the Medicaid offices and the law firm was on top of every detail to get the job done. I am so grateful for all the help I received in this difficult time.
Mr. Pillion and his associates were very responsive to my families needs and handled everything very efficiently. We couldn't have asked for better service and support.
