  • Paul A. Smolinski

    I endorse Helen as an outstanding Elder Law attorney. I have observed Helen during the past years in many capacities. Most recently as a presenter at several Elder Law conferences. Her knowledge is quite broad. I have also watched Helen advocate for her clients in the probate and guardianship courtrooms. She does an excellent job and the judges respect her competence.
