This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Lisa Arrington is both the attorney and person you want when handling estate, Medicaid or complex Nursing Home or Estate issue
I consulted with a couple of attorneys before ultimately having Lisa Arrington and by far was the best decision I made. She helped me help my family when my father suffered a debilitating stroke and couldn't go back to work. She helped inform me and take the necessary steps to protect most of my Dads estate through Medicaid planning as well as getting him into a nursing home facility to get the best care he needed and deserved. Then just two short years after helping me with my Dad she helped our family again when my sister only 28 at the time was handed a grave diagnosis. She's not only a great attorney informing you and your family every step of the way but is compassionate of your individual circumstances. There isn't another attorney I'd use or recommend besides Lisa!!
