My parents who lived out of state were dealing with a big dilemma around their estate and elder care planning. They had worked for decades, saved as much as they could so that they would not be a burden on their children and so that they would be prepared for any challenges that came up (such as needing nursing home care).
I felt completely unprepared for this and had no idea how I could help my parents deal with this. Another concern I had was getting the information and education I needed knowing that I would NOT be able to hire a local attorney- since my parents are in another state.
I was so impressed! I got an appointment the week I called and Paul took nearly an hour to ask me questions so that he would have a good understanding of what my parents' goals might be.
I learned so much more than I can even share in this short space. I can only tell you that he was extremely caring and generous with his time and information. Not only that, but he referred me to a colleague in the state where my parents lived!
I feel like I have a real advocate in Paul and his team at the Stano Law firm and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking answers and results in this very confusing and overwhelming space.
Two things he told me that I will never forget and that I will pass on to you --
1. When you're out of money, then you're out of options -- so you never want to be of either.
2. There is a law for the informed and a law for the uninformed -- you definitely want to be INFORMED.
Paul and his team will help you achieve your elder and life care goals. He did for me and my family.
When it's my turn (and that won't be long) I'll be coming to Stano Law.
