I had been wanting to sit with someone to discuss estate planning and power of attorney, etc for a while now and had a ton of questions. My friend recommended Rep so I booked an appointment and came with my list. Rep was extremely kind and patient and took the time to explain how it all works and to answer all of my questions. He actually ended up recommending that I wait to do any kind of formal planning because where my assets were were already covered by law. He gave me some recommendations of things I could do if I wanted extra coverage and also gave me some forms I could fill out on my own that were free of charge. I truly appreciate this kind of honesty and people that are looking out for whats best for you vs. how to just make another sale. I will definitely use Rep DeLoach in the future should I ever have the need and I would 100% feel comfortable recommending him to any friends or family.

Rep Deloach III came to my rescue. My father was in a nursing home that required in excess of $5,000 per month in treatment fees. My father's monthly income was only $1,800 and he was going through what was left of his savings to stay in this facility. I thought my father would be left broke and as a ward of the State. Rep, filed for State Financial Assistance for my father. He was able to live out his life in comfort and worry free from his financials. I can not thank Rep Deloach and his Assistant Tammy Tolsma enough for all that they did for my family.

Mary and I were thrown into panic mode when my Dad’s health suddenly declined terribly. We were immediately forced to find long term 24 hour nursing care for him. Dad lived in a small town across the state. We did not know where to begin. We contacted Rep DeLoach’s office and there was no delay in getting an appointment.
Our options were clearly explained. We never felt rushed and we learned a lot.
As soon as we told Rep to proceed, he and his team went into action right away. They quickly made arrangements to have Dad moved to an excellent nursing facility near us.
A year later, Mother was no longer physically or mentally able to live alone. Rep played a major roll in helping us understand the complex system of Medicaid. He provided me with a proper Power of Attorney. Rep’s paralegal, social worker, and nurse all played a part in helping us make the right decisions. Today, Mother is happy and well taken care of at the age of 96.
We still use Rep and his team. The peace of mind they give us continues to this day. Rep DeLoach and his staff are to be commended for their knowledge, people skills, legal skills, and professionalism. Without this law firm we would have made a lot of costly mistakes.
