Excellent Estate Planning preparation
My wife and I hired Mr Hurley to update our estate planning documents, which were quite old. He took the time to explain in detail the GA Advance Directive for Healthcare, make our POAs current, and made sure our trust was funded properly. He was very professional while making the whole process comfortable.

Estate Planning
Mr. Hurley assisted my mom with her Will and Powers of Attorney. She moved to GA from FL quite a few years ago and never updated these important documents. Many of her wishes had changed. We feel at peace now that she has her ducks in a row. Mr. Hurley and his staff were very helpful and kind.

I've used Hurley Elder Care Law twice and have had extremely positive experiences each time. They are professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. They bring compassion and empathy to each situation and a nuanced understanding of difficult elder care issues.

Asset protection
After paying for 24 hour nursing care for my wife while I recovered from unexpected health problems I realized I needed help the cost for two months was expensive. My visiting nurse referred me to Hurley Elder Care Law. Smartest thing I ever did I could not have done this on my own. Outstanding firm

Review of Hurley Law and staff
We've had the opportunity to meet with Miles Hurley and work with him and his staff for the past 6months. The knowledge and expertise helped my family and we are so appreciative to them for handling legal and medicare application for our mother. They were so helpful and handled several other legal issues for her. They were all professional and very quick to respond to any and all questions we had. Excellent service. We worked specifically with Paul Abrahamson (Benefit Specialist) and he was exceptional. Dawn Houston (Care Coordinator) was also great to work with. They were both outstanding! We met with Miles Hurley first and he explained the process and how they could help us. My first contact with Hurley was a very pleasant experience! Joanna Hurley asked initial questions and answered them. Joanna was caring and put me at ease at a very stressful time and let me know that they could help me and made an appointment within the week. Cannot say enough good things about the professional and legal we received from all of them. They were a Godsend!

Excellent Help with Personal Revocable Trust
My father had long ago established a personal revocable trust, with himself as the primary trustee and myself as successor trustee. As time passed and he needed more assistance with his finances, it was clear something had to change. I wasn't sure what to do, or how to make changes in a legal and proper manner. Miles was excellent in explaining how trusts worked, ideas for ensuring the trust funds are managed appropriately, and the options we had. My Dad was able to simply resign as trustee and I was able to take over as primary trustee, which was simple and effective for our situation. I was glad Miles did not push anything complicated or otherwise try to "redo" the trust and generate unnecessary billable hours. I came away satisfied and with peace of mind!

I hired Hurley Elder Care Law in year 2009 when my Alzheimer's afflicted wife required long term nursing home care. For eight years, until her death in year 2017, Miles and his staff, without exception, handled the many aspects of Medicaid Eligibility and Care Plan Guidance with unerring and compassionate professionalism. Miles has also provided me competent Estate Planning services since year 2009. I continue to be a very satisfied client and highly recommend Hurley Elder Care Law.

Parental Care Oversight and Guidelines for Obtaining Funds For Veterans
Being a part of the post WWII baby boomers who find themselves "sandwiched" between the challenges of elderly parents with one a veteran of The Battle of the Bulge , and a daughter living at home with specials needs is both demanding and stressful. Mr. Hurley and his "family"/team guided me to set up an Irrevocable trust for Veterans for financial assistance for my parents who moved to a personal care home providing safety and peers as they were no longer able to live at home.The team also provides monitoring of my parent's care and makes suggestions to help meet their health needs. Finally, keeping Hurley Elder care as my parent's attorney allows me to have a 'sounding board' as family concerns and needs change.

VA benefits and elder care
Mr Hurley and his firm were tremendously helpful in acquiring VA benefits for my mother. Being an attorney myself I thought I knew a lot of what to do but Mr. Hurley and his expertise steered me through the VA process much more timely and effectively. He also was a great resource in other aspects of dealing with my mother and her care. Also was always available for my questions. I couldn't recommend him more.

Jennings Hurley elder law review
Very thorough and informative regarding setting up for the Medicaid application process. Made sure everything was in place to get it approved and in place as quickly as possible. Continued and still continues to give excellent information from their point of expertise regarding any questions that may arise, regarding not only my wife’s Medicaid process but also getting her to a desired close facility to home. Only the highest regards for every member of the Hurley law team.

Very please with their community marketing team and families often provide very positive feed back to us.
