Kathryn helped my family navigate care for both of our parents, through journeys with in home care, hospice, nursing home care, and finally estate planning after their deaths. During this time she put plans in motion to help us navigate procuring medicaid, the sale of their house, which included a failed septic system. Kathryn was spot-on with everything, her compassion and knowledge of elder care law is second to none. Our entire family highly recommends Kathryn!

Kathryn was recommended for her elder law expertise. She helped create a customized 'family contract' for our unique situation, which required her partnering with a NY lawyer, as well. In parallel, we used her for our own estate planning, and are to return this month to update the original documents she provided in a timely manner. The occasion of reviewing the documents to prep for the upcoming meeting reminded us of how thorough and thoughtful she was in completing our wills, trusts et al. We highly recommend her services.

I am a healthcare worker who has referred many people to Kathryn over the past 10+ years. Kathryn is an extremely knowledgeable, highly competent and compassionate Attorney. The people that I have referred to Kathryn have been extremely grateful and highly satisfied with her work. I now also utlize Kathryn for my personal estate planning and have also referred family to her. I have worked with many Elder Law Attorneys over the years but have never found any that have come close to being as compassionate, professional and proficient as Kathryn. Kathryn has an unflinching adherance to high standards. I highly recommend Kathryn Crockett Lyon.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I would highly recommend Attorney Lyon to anyone in need of estate planning. I have referred several clients and friends to her and she has gone out of her way to make sure that their needs are met and that every detail is looked after. She is professional, easily accessible, straight forward and honest. I will continue to recommend Attorney Lyon without reservation.
