Mr.
There comes a time and one’s life when you have experienced “earned success” you absolutely want to keep what you have earned. My wife and I recently went through an extensive estate planning with the Shalloway team and we couldn’t be more happy with the results. Everyone was kind, courteous and thoughtful throughout the procedure. We retired with the hope that we could travel more and enjoy life. Knowing that whether we stay in the United States or leave the country, our “nest egg” which took a lifetime to build is protected. We thought estate planning, living wills, trusts, etc. was for people like Elon Musk, not for average people like us. Not true!! If you want to “keep” what you and your family worked so hard to earn then give Shalloway & Shalloway a call today.

Elder Law Demystified
When my parents relocated to South Florida from New Jersey several years ago, I was at once shocked and overwhelmed to find that their will and other legal documents were sorely outdated and insufficient by current standards. Shalloway & Shalloway compassionately and efficiently advised, sorted out and buttoned up all the details so mom & dad's life long legacy was protected. Many years later when my father felt he wanted to make a few changes, I was stressing over the headache this was going to cause. But my fears were assuaged as attorney Brooke Colbert picked up the proverbial ball and ran with it as if no time at all had passed. She respectfully assured my father his intentions were valid and she swiftly and seamlessly created amendments pursuant to his wishes. Perhaps the most important, and I will even say unique, factor though, is the good people at Shalloway & Shalloway still infuse sensitivity and humanity into the client-attorney relationship - a rare find in today's legal climate.

Thank for your Kind and Excellent Service!
We would like to thank the entire staff at Shalloway & Shalloway for their outstanding service. Everyone worked tirelessly for many months to help us, making the necessary phone calls and filling out the reams of paperwork required by Medicaid. We would like to extend a special thank you to Milly and her wonderful assistant Jodi. Both these ladies went above and beyond, putting in many long hours of work on our behalf. We would highly recommend your law firm to anyone, and thank you all again. Sincerely, Jay and T.

Help with Questions About my Mother's Care
Mr. Mark Shalloway was very helpful when I consulted with him concerning my elderly mom's care. My mother, God Bless her, is 86 and caring for her while running my business has become a very difficult part of life. Mr. Shalloway was very learned and pointed me in the right direction concerning insurance and hiring home care. Thank You!

Extremely Pleased
We were extremely pleased with the work of the firm. Mark Shalloway drafted a personal plan for us and Jodi Jackson executed it with the precision of a surgeon. Highly recommend them to anyone needing Elder Care Guidance.

Very satisfied
I hired Shalloway and Shalloway for estate/medicaid planning for both of my parents. We met with Michael Shalloway on several occasions and all of our questions were answered and concerns addressed. Since then, I have been serviced by case manager Milly Quebedeaux and Lynn Ugartemendia, who could not be more helpful. I highly recommend this firm to anyone in need of elder care services in Florida.

my awesome experience!!!
My husband has Alzheimer's. We got all his paperwork in order, reviewed his will, power of attorney and health care surrogate, did an application for medicaid which was approved in about a month, and applied for VA benefits. Prior to my first visit, I was not even aware that we were eligible for some VA benefits.The staff is very caring and knowledgeable. I knew exactly what to bring for every visit. Phone calls and emails are always returned. I highly recommend this firm for elder law needs

Mark Shalloway
Mr Shalloway, at his meeting with us was very helpful and laid out his plans of success for us very well. We are in the midst of applying for benefits. Mr Shalloway's office staff is extremely helpful and have no problem reviewing and explaining procedures until they are understood. They are trying to get things done asap and hopefully we will be successful very soon in getting everything finalized.

Medicaid Planning
Mr. Shalloway is an expert on medicaid planning, but is able to explain options in a way that we could grasp and make decisions. I found the staff to be very responsive and caring. Would definitely recommend this firm for anyone who is facing long term care expenses for a loved one.

Very disappointing experience
"Stay away from Shalloway!" A horrible, frustrating experience: completely unresponsive and unprofessional. After working with a partner in the firm for almost two years, the lack of responsiveness became untenable. Even an email to the co-founder asking for an explanation was not returned. Shameful.

Former Client
My personal opinion is that he's a fraud using his father's reputation as a judge to profit monetarily from those in the midst of dire and/or urgent and very emotional situations regarding relatives in near-death and/or exigent life-threatening situations. Very disappointed. I feel like my family fell for a con artist. I should have known better when he insisted on a front-end fee of approximately $7000, which my father paid. He had an assistant who worked very hard and diligently on behalf of his law firm, but he, himself, couldn't be bothered once he had my father's money. Now that my mother has passed and I am thinking clearly, I realize how foolish we were to have fallen for his "pitch" at at local assisted living facility. I now find it disgusting, unethical, and possibly criminal that he did what he did, and again, feel so foolish that I allowed my father to give Shalloway some of his (my father's) hard-earned savings when he was desperate to do all he could for his wife of 60+ years. PLEASE DON'T BE LIKE ME AND MY FATHER AND FALL FOR HIS GIMMICKS. We saw him speak at a seminar where I now realize he was just on a fishing expedition to lure in elderly people facing desperate and emotionally-trying times that they'd never experienced before. I blame myself more than anyone because I felt something wasn't right in what he promised, but we were desperate and faced with very emotional decisions when we (my father) "hired" him. Don't fall for his spiel when he's on his soapbox claiming to care. All he cares about is money in his wallet. I would be interested if others had the same experience.
