David is very knowledgeable about social security and medicaid. It was a relief to have his help. He knows the answers. I appreciate him for helping me!!!!!!!!!

David guided our family with Medicaid qualification for my sister who suffered a traumatic brain injury and other physical injuries in a traffic accident and could no longer live alone. We were referred to him by a judge who goes to our church.
We were directed by hospital social workers to apply for Medicaid but denied. No one at the Department of Family Services helped except to talk about food stamps. In our first meeting with David, he knew exactly why the Medicaid was denied and immediately guided us to Medicaid programs that could allow my sister to live at home with caregiver assistance covered by Medicaid. We wasted valuable time speaking with other lawyers who kept pointing us in the wrong direction. We learned that Medicaid is more complicated then we were first told but he and his staff couldn't be more helpful. It was a year long process because of waiting lists. Had we first started with David rather then another attorney, we could have qualified sooner.

The case did indeed end in my favor; however, it would have been surprising to have not had guardianship granted. Initially, as with most attorneys, he was friendly and responsive - I am sorry to say that did not last very long. His office staff was even less friendly, responsive, helpful, or, most importantly, detail-oriented. Of course, as they are whom one deals with most frequently, this was most disappointing.

I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer. David is widely recognized by his peers as an expert in special needs and elder law. He regularly and generously offers advice to his fellow lawyers, and speaks, on these subjects. He is also an extremely compassionate and highly committed advocate for his clients. In short, if you are looking for an attorney to assist you in these areas, you cannot go wrong with David Pollan.
