My father was faced with not only my mother's care but the financial implications of her needing to be placed in a care center. Mr. Lavin was referred to me by a co-worker who was very pleased her interactions with him on behalf of her parents. From the minute we entered the office, we were treated with the utmost concern and care. We relayed our concerns to Chris and he had answers and suggestions for us, meanwhile showing genuine compassion for my father's situation. All aspects were given to us up front and there was nothing hidden from us, either now or then. The staff is unbeliveable, they go above and beyond. From Wes who guided us through the processes to the young lady that met me at an out of office location, when I was unable to make it to the office before closing. She took her time to go the extra to make things easy for me. That is something you don't see very often in the today's world. I could go on and on, but there is not enough space or words to express how happy we are that we found this practice to hlp us during this stressful time. I have already passed on the practice contact information and our experiences to many others. My friends, co-workers and I are in that age where we are becoming the caregivers and Lavin Law office has been a god send for us all. Thanks !!
My parents were products of "The Greatest Generation." They worked hard and raised six children. They were always very private about their finances and such. My siblings and I had no visibility to their "financial situation" until they became ill and needed our help. Thankfully, a friend of ours had just gone through a similar situation with her parents and referred us to Chris Lavin. When we made the appointment, we were told everything we needed to bring with us to the initial meeting. Attorney Lavin sat down with us and reviewed all of the documentation professionally and efficiently. He and Wes Hensley took care of all the paperwork so we could focus on our parents' long term healthcare needs. Lavin Law Group understands and provides solutions to the estate planning and legal aspects of elder care that is overwhelming to a family trying to support their loved ones through the final stages of life. They guided us through every step of the way. My family and I are grateful to LLG for giving us peace of mind during a very emotional process.
We had an amazing experience with the Lavin Law Group. We didn't know where to begin or how to protect our aging parents. Chris Lavin and his team helped guide us through every step of the way. it's nearly ten years since we put the estate in order with their help, and we still call Chris and Wes for guidance. They are always responsive and knowledgable in their advice.

My family met with Mr. Lavin in regards to our current legal plan and he took the time to review all of our existing documents and explained to us the plan we had in place. He didn't try to sell us a whole new plan and even advised that we continue our relationship with our previous attorney. We appreciated the honesty and chose to work with Mr. Lavin specifically to protect our home from a nursing home situation. We are pleased with the work of his firm..
Chris helped me set up a trust to protect my home from Nursing Homes costs. I will recommend hom to my friends and family. He was very easy to work with and very knowledgable.
I met Chris several years ago. I was impressed with his knowledge of estate planning and his willingness to explain the laws in a manner I could understand – it’s all so complicated. I have also found him courteous, honest, friendly and willing to answer any questions I have. Chris prepared my new will and trust and other important legal papers, such as our HIPPA form, Medical Power of Attorney and Directive to Physicians and Family. I am very pleased with his and his staff’s efficiency to complete the work in a timely manner. Chris continues to keep me informed of changes in the law by his seminars and a yearly client meeting. Chris’s staff is friendly, willing to answer questions and return calls. I feel comfortable that my estate is in order and in good hands to protect, not only me, but my family for the future.
Chris is an excellent estate planning attorney. We were extremely pleased with the work Attorney Lavin performed for us and we found him to be intelligent, professional and extremely personable. The staff was more than helpful and always answered our questions. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for an elder law attorney.
