My husband received the unexpected diagnosis of Younger Onset Alzheimer Disease when he was 58. We were devastated, and scared, and we didn't know who to turn to. The attorney we had been using recommended we seek an Elder Attorney to guide us down the treacherous road ahead of us.
We didn't know where to turn. He recommended the firm of Law ElderLaw in Aurora, which was a good hour drive from our home. With the rest of our life hanging in the balance we decided to call. It was the smartest move we ever made.
When my husband and I first went to Law ElderLaw, we were not sure what to expect but after our very first meeting we both knew we had found the man we wanted to turn our financial life over to. He involved our adult children and encouraged them to attend the meetings and speak their minds. Rick asked about our financial situation but also wanted to discover our family dynamics. Rick Law is the finest, most honorable and sincere attorney I know. He goes above and beyond what one could possibly expect. Rick is very highly respected in his field and the compassion he and his staff show is second to none.
Rick's entire staff share his committment to their client's emotional and financial well being.
Rick strived to legally protect our assets but more importantly to protect our emotional well being at the same time.
Law ElderLaw has become known as the "Teddy Bear Attorneys" and I can't think of a better description.
Rick always performs in strict accordance to the law and the highest possible moral and ethical standards. His staff are experts in their fields, from applying for Medicaid, Estate Planning, Nursing Homes, Assisted Living, Disability, Trusts, Guardianships, Education but more importantly - providing peace of mind.
I highly recomment Rick Law and the Law ElderLaw Firm!

My wife Norma and I have known Rick Law and his family, personally and professionally, for over 35 years. We know Rick is a person of great character and the highest integrity. Most importantly...he cares about his friends, family, community and his clients. This is the reason we have selected Rick and Law ElderLaw to assist us in creating our estate plan.
Another wonderful benefit of working with Rick is that he has a gift for explaining very complex estate planning concepts and strategies in simple terms that are much easier for us to understand. Rick and his firm are also experts in Elder Law planning, which to us is a very critical piece to consider in any estate plan - regardless of the 'size' of the estate. We highly recommend Rick Law and Law ElderLaw for your consideration.
