The firm of Chalgian & Tripp severely misguided our family in our parents nursing home medicaid application and process. They argued with DHS over medicaid law for over a year, created a huge debt, told us the entire time that they would win the case. After over $100,000.00 in nursing home debt accumulated, they lost all their appeals and left our family with the debt. A very, very disappointing experience, especially while caring for 2 aging parents at the same time. So saddened by their professional and moral ethics.......will tell everyone I come in contact about this experience.

Zero stars for this attorney. They called a meeting to sign documents pertaining to a probate matter. When the meeting was held there were no documents ready for probate matters, but instead they turned the meeting into "estate planning" which we were very clear ahead of time was not wanted. Billed over $350 for a meeting that was not wanted for that purpose. Dragged their feet on closing estate after probate indicated the estate was ready to close much earlier. Finally had to insist the estate be closed immediately as the delays seemed to be an opportunity for continued billing. Ultimate insult came after attorney assigned to the case sent letter stating the estate was closed and thanking us for having chosen the firm, two months later get a bill for "reviewing" an already closed estate. Was not impressed by demeanor of attorney, for example speaking insubordinately to us during conversations. Cost to benefit ratio: could have accomplished much more for much less elsewhere.
