I hired Nicole to help navigate the often confusing and complicated arena of Medicaid, as well as to review our existing Will, POAs and other forms. My Mom was not doing well and what we thought would help safeguard her lifetime of hard work and little savings was about to be taken away due to the need to seek the assistance of Medicaid. Nicole and her team were extremely knowledgeable and able to get the necessary documents and paperwork in order. During these times, it is often very difficult to be prepared for everyday let alone dealing with state requirements. She handled it with confidence and ease, we are greatly appreciative of her ability and technical expertise. She not only managed the Medicaid and the multiple state requested revisions, she also provided me with updated POAs and Will to ensure I could continue to be the best advocate for my Mom as possible. We would highly recommend her for any Elder Care needs that you or your family would require.

I wanted to say thank you for your diligence in the work you have done to preserve my family's assets. You took on a very challenging case with my father passing unexpectedly. We had not completed an estate plan, and we were in a very challenging spot. Your deep knowledge of the family planning law enabled you to develop a creative solution that was in the best interest of my family. My father was a barber for 50 years and made every dollar through hard work. Saving this money to pay for things like his grandchildren's college tuition is what he would have wanted. You are making this possible, and without you this never would have happened. You were able to preserve more of our estate and assets than we thought was possible. Thank you again for the outstanding and compassionate work.

Nicole was very professional and helpful. She took the time to make sure my family and I understood all our options. She answered all our questions and always had time for us. I would recommend Nicole to family and friends.

Nicole is one of the most talented and energetic lawyers I know. I would not hesitate to recommend her - she is the lawyer's lawyer - smart, kind, talented and eager to share her experience with others. I'm sure her clients simply adore her.

Nicole is a fantastic attorney. I first met Nicole while we were attending a continuing legal education class on elder law and estate planning. Nicole is a go to person that I constantly consult when working with my own clients. I personally have family that live near where Nicole practices and have referred them to her because I know she treats everyone as if they were her own family. Trust Nicole for all your elder law and estate planning needs. You can't go wrong and you won't find someone better.
