Both my elderly mother and aunt were running short on funds and unable to continue paying for senior living services on their own towards the end of 2016. We had heard that Mr. Karp and his staff were particularly adept at helping clients navigate the labyrinth-like process of filing for long term nursing home Medicaid, so we contacted his office for assistance. As far as my husband and I are concerned, the money we paid Mr. Karp and his staff for their services was one of the best investments we ever made! Other than our having to submit all the necessary Medicaid eligibility documentation to Attorney Karp's office, his staff did everything concerning completion of the application and dealing directly with Florida DCF. Both my mother and aunt were ultimately approved for nursing home/long term Medicaid entitlement, thanks to the efforts of Mr. Karp and his hardworking staff!

I first met with Joe Karp about 10 years ago to create a Family Trust for the benefit of my father in law and did some Medicaid planning in anticipation of my father in law's future needs. My father in law was 87 at the time. Fast forward 10 years, my father in law was recently transferred to a nursing home and shortly after he was admitted we applied for Medicaid for him. Within a month he was approved. The process for applying could have been a paperwork nightmare but with the help of his expert staff it was as simple a process as possible. This took what could have been a financial as well as a paperwork nightmare and became a smart decision that we made 10 years ago with Joe's expert guidance.

My mother and I needed some guidance regarding a legal matter that was not related to the trust the firm had prepared. They were very helpful and informative. They explained the issues and my options and gave me some recommendations for lawyers that could handle our case. I really feel like they care about their clients and have our best interests foremost on their minds. The entire staff has been so nice. Norma Cruz has been my point guard throughout all of this. She was always cheerful and did not make me feel like a bother. She was very friendly and accommodating. Thanks.

When my Dad needed to be placed in a nursing home, Mr. Karp and his highly professional staff handled every aspect of the process for my family. All of them treated my family with dignity and respect and the highest level of competence that I could ever have imagined. What I did not realize at the time was that he also put everything in place for my Mom as well, so that when she passed away a few years later, we did not even have to go back to his office. Mr. Karp had already taken care of it. My family will always be grateful for his firm's kindess and compassion.
This past year, I returned to Mr. Karp's office to update my will. He spent an hour with my wife and me, made some great suggestions, and did not charge us any money whatsoever for his time. In today's world, things like this rarely happen, and once again we owe the Karp Law Firm a debt of gratitude.
I highly recommend this firm to anyone with Elder Law or last will and testament issues.

Mr. Karp and staff have made the process painless. Their prompt, reassuring and knowledgeable responses have made a significant impact on my stress level! After researching his firm on the Internet and subsequently having an initial phone conversation, my gut feelings had been reinforced ! I was in the right hands. The services and expertise his firm provided has allowed me to focus on the more important personal issues with my father. To plagiarize a phrase from Master Card…..”this has been priceless for me”. MOST IMPORTANT, it is reassuring when talking to someone, that you feel you are both on the "same page"!

Joe Karp organized our Trust document and a case in which my wife and I were trustees, after our friend died. In all contacts, and there were many, Mr. Karp exhibit exceptional interest in our situation and helped us understand the legal ramifications of various Federal and state laws. I was particularly happy that he always used language understandable to non-legal client. While attorneys have time as their tool of the trade, we had ample time to explore our details and ask question. What, perhaps, impressed me most, is the reality that Joe, besides being an attorney, is also a deep person who quickly recognizes the essence of a given situation.

As I work as a professional expert witness, through the years I have had much experience with many Florida attorneys. I chose Joseph Karp to handle my estate planning. My mother, who passed away a few years ago, did as well thank goodness, because he was there, as always, every step of the way. It is a real pleasure to have an attorney like Joseph Karp plan for and help you with important decisions in times of need.
I would recommend Joseph Karp to anyone that asked about Estate Planning and Probate law without hesitation. He makes you feel comfortable and explains everything in terms anyone can understand. His staff is friendly and courteous, and makes you feel that you are much more than just another client.
Thank you Joe!
