Our matter was one of Estate planing and Medicaid preparation/application for our Mother. This had us interacting with Mr. Callinan and his Legal Assistant for over 2 1/2 years, with a good amount of frequency. Honestly, there was never a time that a call or e-mail or concern was ignored or minimized. When you are dealing with a senior loved one's care & health & finances, etc......the last thing you need is to feel put off or out of the loop or spend countless hours trying to get answers. Never ever did we feel any of this. Both he and his Legal Assistant and staff were just wonderful and down-to-earth people who did a phenomenal job in taking us through this very daunting process. This is written with much appreciation and respect.

Mr. Callinan worked in connection with a mortgage specialist to secure for us a reverse mortgage. He was able to draft and to revise documents essential to that process. His work was done expeditiously and with a sensitivity to the importance of attentiveness to detail. We trust his expertise and highly recommend his services.

I hired John W. Callinan as my Mother's Elder Care Attorney. Not only is Mr. Callinan well-versed in Elder Care Law, he is most knowledgeable with the Health Care System for the Elderly and the Laws and Policies and Procedures associated with it. Mr. Callinan was always a professional and answered all my questions no matter how big or small promptly and in a professional manner.
Ms. Paula Fama was also a gem to deal with. In fact, Paula was also excellent as well. Thank you for all you did for my mother. I couldn't have done it without you.
I am a Health care Professional who highly recommends this Law Firm. All staff in this firm are very professional. Thank you...

Me. Callinan handled both my father and mother's estate planning. He was extremely thorough in detailing how extensive the 5 year look back could become. He followed up and reviewed all documents, making sure nothing was missed. I did not know as a disabled adult , my parents were able to gift money to me without consequence. This saved a considerable amount of money for them. I used that money for their care. Mr. Callinan also completed the health directives , Will and Durable Power of attorney . The office staff was extremely helpful in the process, managing all the massive amount of paper work. I am most grateful for their help.

We hired Mr. Callinan for a difficult estate matter. Coming from out of Georgia, we were a little reluctant as to how this all would go. Mr. Callinan was absolutely incredible from start to finish. He was very responsive to our calls and messages. His staff was always on top of things as well. He explained everything anytime we asked. We were able to meet with him in person due to a court action that was taken for the estate and not only was he incredibly friendly, but he really put all our concerns at rest with his professional demeanor, incredible knowledge on the area of law he practices and let us know we were in good hands. The estate took quite a long time to handle due to issue from family members and through it all he kept us informed. I may not live in the same state but I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Callinan again. He is truly the one professional who will get the job done right and leave you feeling like you made the best choice hiring him. I highly recommend to everyone. All professionals should show the concern and quality of work that he does on a daily basis.
Incredibe Attorney and just a great man!

I was at a loss when faced with mounting medical bills and home care expenses for my elderly parents. John Callinan sorted out my financial situation, put my dilemma into perspective and organized both a care plan and financial plan that allowed my folks to live out their years in a dignified setting without sacrificing their entire nest egg.
John's sympathy for the aging population stems from his strong familial ties with his aging parents. He himself is a primary caretaker. Tall, handsome with a firm handshake of confidence, I was reassured that every decision was the right one. His fees were reasonable and I always received a return call and more importantly didn' feel I was on the clock like other attorneys. My parents were comfortable and John visited them in the home care setting more than once. John is up to date on all Medicare decisions and well versed in Family Trusts. His legal advice is based on your needs and interests and not aimed at generating legal fees.

Mr. Callinan is extremely knowledgeable, nice, pleasant and sticks to the facts. My mother and I hired him, after researching about 5 other Elder-Care Lawyers, and were very pleased with him and his office. We needed to apply for Medicaid for her husband and he and his staff did a terrific job! Never could have done it without him - he is wonderful and "matter of fact."

After speaking to several attorneys who deal in Estate Law, we knew Mr. Callinan was the man who would be the one to hire. He was very knowledgeable of all current laws and was focused on our issues at hand. He assured us with his confident and professional manner that he would help us through this estate problem. He took the time to explain every question we had and was open to different ideas as well. He was straight forward about pricing and how things would work best. He was very quick to respond even with all the other work he had to do. The other attorneys talked down to us and made us feel like we were bothering them. Mr. Callinan is a man who will look out for your best interest and make things happen. It was a pleasure to deal with such a professional and we would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a competent lawyer. Truly the best!
