Jane Fearn-Zimmer is a brilliant elder care attorney who proactively defends and manages the rights of her clients and provides strategic solutions to meet their needs. Over a multi-year period Jane assisted our family in working through the guardianship process for an elderly parent in need of assistance and worked through the financial issues associated with selling a house, obtaining Medicaid support, and a multitude of other financial and tax issues. Jane takes a holistic approach to assure that the client is covered with regard to legal, financial, medical, housing, and quality of life. She understands the real life issues encountered by guardians and is empathetic to the challenges of those needing progressive levels of assistance in navigating the legal and practical issues associated with aging. Jane has a passion for service to her clients, high integrity, detail orientation, compassionate approach to issues, and excellent knowledge of the complexities of the current legal environment facing guardians and those they care for. She provided trustworthy, highly responsive and reliable support over a five year period, sometimes working over evenings and weekends to address unexpected and emergency issues for my mother. Jane represented me in the courtroom on several occasions and has the courtroom expertise and presentation skills to achieve very successful outcomes for her clients. She has negotiated other services and pricing on behalf of my mother for necessary elder services or available elder benefits associated with housing, insurance, and other medical billings that resulted in considerable cost savings. I am pleased to recommend Jane at the highest level to anyone in need of an experienced elder care attorney with a proven track record of success.

I worked with Jane recently on a medical insurance claim. I can honestly say in my past experiences working with other lawyers, Jane was much more direct and on top of her game when it came to issues with my case. She communicated with me directly on a regular basis and went above and beyond out of her way to help me. I would highly recommend her and her team as she is extremely professional and wants to get the job done!

Jane, thank you for all of your help in handling the estate of my late mother in law. Between the transfer of stocks, filing both estate and inheritance tax returns and your overall advice, you were terrific. Through all of my phone calls and emails you were always respectful and caring. A few times I even received your response at 11pm in the evening while you were burning the midnight oil. I don't know how we would have gotten through this without you.
I would highly recommend you to all of our family and friends or anyone in need of a knowledgeable caring attorney.
Thank you very much

After the recent death of my wife, Mary, I sought legal assistance to obtain Medicaid approval for payment of her medical bills. Upon many recommendations, I obtained representation by the firm of Jerold Rathkoff. Fortunately, Jane Fern-Zimmer was assigned to handle my case. Jane immediately began the arduous task of handling the endless demands and denials of Medicaid. After many long months of effort by Jane, the Medicaid people finally approved my application. I feel very fortunate to have had Jane Fern-Zimmer working on my behalf. Thanks to her skill and efforts, she succeeded in getting the necessary approval.

Jane was instrumental in helping our family with the Medicaid process for my mother. She was knowledgeable of what paperwork we needed to gather for the process and kept us informed as the application was processed. She worked closely with our family, the case manager and supervisor of Medicaid to process the initial application, appeal and yearly renewal paperwork. Jane returned phone calls in a timely manner and was able to answer our questions or referred us to others within her office that specialized in that area. It was nice to be able to have someone to ask questions too during the stressful period of deciding on the right nursing home and the medicaid process to ensure our mother had the best care she could possibly receive during the aging process and Alzheimer's.
