Responsive and knowledgeable -- relieved my anxiety
My husband died recently and I realized I needed help navigating the probate process. A friend told me about Kelley Napier; I called the office and left a message. Someone called back very soon and said Kelley would contact me to clarify what I needed within 24-48 hours. Kelley called the next day, asked me some questions, and told me I did not require probate. She also sent me an affidavit to transfer my husband's car to me. I asked how I could compensate her for her time and knowledge and she chuckled and said she hadn't provided any legal services so no charge. In the middle of a sad time of my life, Kelley brought a bit of needed sunshine.

Highly Recommend
Kelley helped me navigate making arrangements for my mother as she progressed through dementia. Her initial consultation was extremely informative and at a very reasonable price. I later used her in setting up a trust and in representing me in navigating Medicaid. She was always very kind, professional and responded very quickly with any sort of question. She is a wealth of knowledge and I highly recommend Kelley for your elder care attorney needs.

Patient, Compassionate and Competent
Kelley was instrumental in guiding my father in dealing with my mother’s nursing home in her last days. She has continued to be a valued resource for my family and friends for elder law issues and solutions. If she is not an expert in the area for which a client is calling, she knows who is and promptly refers that professional. We recommend consulting her on the complicated legal and economic matters facing us all as we age to anyone who values being “more than a number” to those with whom you do business.
