We sought legal advice from Mr Hartley when our mother unexpectedly fell and had to be placed into a skilled nursing facility. When it became apparent that she would be unable physically to return to her home, we had to quickly determine our options for paying for her long term care. We were at a complete loss as to how to navigate the paperwork and process of the DSS system. Mr Hartley was a godsend to us. He was able to quickly assess our family's situation, outline our options, and advise us how to proceed. He was highly knowledgeable, professional and gracious with us. We would recommend him to any family dealing with the quandary of funding care at a long term care facility, medicaid enrollment, and veterans benefits.

Larry provided me with my Will and Trust.
This was my first experience with this type of legal work ,and Larry walked me through each step and was patient and kind as I asked questions and thought things over.
I felt he gave solid advice and treated me as he would his own family. No question was too small to receive a full answer. He seemed very knowledgeable.
