I first came across John Bigler after calling the Alzheimers Association to inquire if they had a listing of attorneys that dealt primarily with Elder Law or disability. After reviewing the list and talking to a few, I selected Bigler. While his firm seemed small compared to others, I just got a good feeling from my preliminary calls. At the time, I was frantic and frazzled trying to work through details for a dear friend who was in a nursing home and just diagnosed with MD. John was just what the doctor ordered. I called him in a panic saying that I was out of the country and my friend was being threatened with discharge and the nursing home was yelling at me. "Don't worry", John said, and I haven't since. Since then, I have used Bigler several times for matters ranging from Medicaid applications to wills and power of attorney. He is not only exceedingly knowledgeble, but, in a field that is rampant with easy ways to capitalize on vulnerable people, John is completely transparent and totally honest. I can't recommend him any more highly.
