Aging parents is not an easy subject. The worry of their well-being gets more intense when you are not geographically close. The home care is the answer, but without Medicaid it is basically financially impossible. My sister and I were lucky to to get Yana Feldman's to qualify my parents for Medicaid and receive home care 8 hours a day for 6 days a week. Yana Feldman is not only the most knowledgeable in elderly law, she is also very warm and caring person. It helped us a lot dealing with this issue emotionally. My parents are so happy, and it made them feel good about themselves. Thank you Yana!

I contacted Ms Feldman regarding some of the intricacies of setting up a will and organizing our finances. She handled my request with professionalism, high level of knowledge and patience: she listened to all my questions and concerns and provided me with a detailed, precise consultation focused on my issues. I would gladly recommend dealing with Ms Feldman -- her attention to detail, people skills and most importantly level of expertise set a very high bar.
