Applying for Medicaid for Elderly Parent
In January we went to Sarah for help in applying for Medicaid for our father who is in a nursing home. Sarah helped up with information on how to navigate the cumbersome task of gathering all the documents necessary for Medicaid approval. Sarah answered all our questions via e-mail or phone in a timely manner. Our father was approved for Medicaid one month later. We were happy to hear that Dad had been approved so quickly. We believe that Sarah's attention to detail and her accurate responses to our questions helped us complete the process so quickly. We highly recommend Sarah for anyone who needs legal advice in helping their elderly parents.

Comments about Sarah Peet
I had the privilege of meeting Ms. Peet at a seminar at which she presented. I approached her after the meeting to ask some personal questions, which she explained to me so that I could fully understand. We worked with Sarah and her law firm to help us prepare a Special Needs trust and Power of Attorney. She also answered my son's questions regarding another legal situation and treated him with such respect. We referred another family member in which she created a trust, who was very pleased with her knowledge, professionalism, cost and follow-up. I would highly recommend Ms. Peet as an attorney.

Sarah Schelling Peet
While discussing with friends that my 15-year-old grandson was coming to visit without his parents, I learned that a POA for Child Care was necessary in the State of Florida to ensure that we could properly care for him. By email, I furnished the information necessary. By email, Sarah Schelling Peet sent the completed documents to me and to my daughter for execution. From start to finish, it was 2 days. I could not have been more pleased.

Wills and other estate planning services.
Ms. Peet was very knowledgeable and helpful during the entire process. She asked insightful questions to help us explore every possible scenario during our planning discussions. She was very accessible which was nice. We would definitely use her again should the need arise.

Personal Plan
I knew nothing about estate/will planning when I was referred to Mrs. Peet. She not only knows everything that will plan for my family, but she also explains the terms and choices in language that I can easily understand. She keeps abreast of all legal changes and policies. She is very courteous and easy to relate to. She also keeps me informed of interesting items that occur.

Excellent estate planning services provided
My husband and I were very pleased with Ms. Schelling Peet from our first meeting. We could see she understood our needs and provided us with explanations of her services and provided us with a written plan within days of our meeting. She helped us feel at ease through the entire process and responded promptly to any questions we asked. We are so relieved to know our wishes will be carried out if and when the time comes. We strongly recommend Sarah Schelling Peet.

Estate planning review
We loved working with Sarah Peet for our Estate planning! She was so professional and caring. Deciding on guardians for your children and dividing assests can be daunting, but she thoroughly walked us through each step and helped with so many questions. I highly recommend her services!
