We take the bite out of special needs and long term care planning!  I am an elder law Attorney and I help families plan for long term care of thier elderly or special needs family members through Special Needs Trusts, Powers of Attorney designations, Advance Directive for Health Care, Asset Protection Trusts, HIPAA Authorization documents, and long term care planning utilizing Veterans Benefits, Medicaid benefits, and insurance funding to protect the family's assets for future generations.  I also handle Guardianship and Conservatorship cases, and Probate matters.  I am a native of Athens, Georgia and am licensed in Georgia, Florida, Arizona and Connecticut.  My parents are 91 and 95 and I understand the difficulties of maintaining independence while ensuring safety for our older family members.   I work with families dealing with cognitive issues such as dementia, Alzheimer's, developmental disabilities, Down Syndrome, and Autism. I help surviving family members navigate the probate process when a loved one dies. I plan for Long Term Care benefits such as VA Aid and Attendance, Medicaid Nursing home care, and other methods to provide asset protection for families.

Excellent
She really knows the ins and outs of probate. We had several complicated issues but she sorted right through each and we left he meeting knowing she had a plan. She is not afraid of complications and she really put us at ease with her knowledge and her humorous personality. Highly recommend her.

Great experience
Ms. Grayson made my legal experience easy. I was able to get an appointment quickly and she didn't waste time during my appointment having me fill out forms. She emailed them to me ahead of time so we were able to keep the meeting brief and to the point. She was so kind and explained everything to me so that it made sense. The whole process was very fast and there was little work on my end. I highly recommend Dennise.

Ethical and Professional
Ms. Grayson was very helpful in explaining why I needed more than just a will for my children and why it was important to have a health care directive, power of attorney and the pros and cons of setting up a trust. She prepared my will and health care directive and I thought her fees were very reasonable. I also have a friend with a special needs child and she seemed very knowledgeable about Social Security and how to prepare to take care of such a child through wills and trusts. She really seemed to care about helping and not just running up her fees.
