About Me

I am an elder law attorney.  This is what I do and this is my passion.  I am a Certified Elder Law Attorney, as certifed by the National Elder Law Foundation, which is accredited by the American Bar association to certify attorneys.  As of now, I am only one of four in the state of Arkansas.  I am on the Board of Directors of the National Elder Law Foundation.


I want to make sure that the elderly and their families are protected and getting all of the benefits they deserve and have worked for their entire lives.  Our practice is limited to the specific legal issues related to the elderly including Estate Planning (wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorneys), Medicaid benefits for home care or nursing home care, Veteran's benefits to help pay for care at home, assisted living or nursing homes.  We can also help you with guardianships and probate.


That's it, that is what we do.  All of my continuing education is based on this area of practice.  Having done 2500 Medicaid applications and hundreds of VA applicatrions, we know how the system works.  We can help you preserve the assets while qualifying for services that you may not even know you may qualify for at this time.  Give us a call and we will help you navigate through this maze of regulation and misinformation.
