VA Benefits and Irrevocable Trust
Ben handled our request for Veteran Aid and Attendance for our mother, a surviving spouse. He changed a revocable trust to an irrevocable trust upon our request. Ben is a professional expert in his field. I have referred many friends to his firm who now also agree.

Ben Schock and VA Aid and Attendance Applications - Recommended
My family used Ben's services for the Veteran's Administration application process for the Aid and Attendance Benefit, first for my father, and then after my father passed, to prepare my mothers application. We found Ben to be organized, efficient, and knowledgeable. Using his checklist, preparation of the documentation was straightforward. Ben also provided helpful advice when the time came for moving my mom out of the family home into assisted living. I have recommended him to colleagues and family members who are going thru the similar experiences.

Highly recommed this law firm
Used Ben Schock for my dads VA benefits. He was most knowledgeable and helpful guiding me from beginning to end on all matters. I now use him for my trust set up and he has been just as helpful. I have recommended several of my friends and their families of which all have been extremely impressed and satisfied. I would recommend Ben and his staff to everyone!
