I was already a Client of PYWL working with their Financial Experts. While meeting with one I mentioned that I took care of my (2) 91 year old parents and my Father was in need of a Nursing home as my Mother could not care for him any longer. He suggested I talk to Patricia and I scheduled an initial consultation with her and we spoke for over an hour. I brought my parents finances with me and she told me her plan would be to redirect my Father's Income in his name to my Mother so that she could continue to live in their apartment which was right up the street from the Nursing Home that my Father was in now so she could continue to visit her husband of 67 years.
Trisha told me it would be a long hard journey for both of us, but we would become good friends as we pursued a common goal.
She was right! Her abilities as an Elder Law Lawyer, her personality along with being a genuinely kind person were the perfect match. She has assembled an amazing team and everyone was working towards the same goal as I came to see her for. She succeeded and my Mother has been able to stay in her Apartment. Wouldn't Hesitate to Recommend Trisha and her Team to anyone I talk to.

I'm thankful for Patricia's guidance, care, patience, and time while helping fulfill my father’s wishes on record. Additionally, her thoughtful understanding and evaluation of our family’s situation and wishes to care for him in any transition that we make were impeccable. She was thorough and analytical towards options that would best meet all our needs.

I found PYWL and Tricia Shumaker through a friend who spoke very highly of her. I had recently become Power of Attorney and Health Care Proxy for an elderly widow and was completely unfamiliar with how to best manage her estate. Tricia was patient, professional, knowledgeable, kind and responsive to every question and every need that arose. She took the time to explain in great detail the ins and outs of proper estate planning, and it was clear that she wasn't simply concerned with the financial piece. She is completely tuned into her clients wishes and needs.
I cannot say enough positive things about our experience. Tricia made the whole process so comfortable and easy and kept me informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend her and the entire PYWL team to anyone in need of estate planning or elder care legal services. I couldn't imagine a better experience.

I came to PYWL and Tricia because my mom's condo had been placed into the wrong type of trust when it was purchased. I wish that I had known about her sooner, she was so helpful and efficient. She even came to the house to make it easier for my mom, who is 89, to sign everything.
I recently had to pay another visit to her as some circumstances have changed and was given the same caring and well informed treatment. I am confident that following her counsel is my best course of action and we are proceeding as such.
Caring for an elderly parent is taxing and stressful, financially and emotionally. Tricia is adept at helping to reach the proper conclusions while being supportive and pleasant. She is wonderful to deal with and I highly recommend her services.
