Martha Brown and her team were excellent! They met with my sons & I and walked us through the "legal speak" of any and all documents. They worked the Medicaid forms for us in a timely manner, all the while giving us the care and concern us older folks needed. When we called or emailed, there was a prompt reply! Highly recommended!

I referred my best friend & her brother to Martha for advice about a family matter. She understood the intricacies of the family dynamic and the impact that an elderly parent's mental health issues have on relationships. She could answer their questions based on years of experience, and gave meaningful guidance and reassurance -- all in one sitting. After consulting with Martha, my friends got a good night's sleep for the first time in weeks.

Martha Brown represented my family for sensitive legal matters that involved having my father declared incompetent to protect him from outside predators. Martha and her staff were extremely sensitive to how delicate of a situation it was and were always professional. Martha handled my family, including my father, with the same care and respect that she handled dealing with the judge assigned to our case. It was a pleasure working with Martha and I would highly recommend her to anyone with a legal issue in the Elder Care area of the law.

In several different instances and legal matters, Martha has always proven to be one of a very select few attorneys who knows all of the ins and outs of Elder Law planning. I regularly refer my estate planning clients to her Firm for her specialized legal service, and will continue to do so.

I have been a professional colleague of Martha's for many years and have worked with Martha on committees for the Missouri Chapter of NAELA. In addition to being well organized she possesses all the qualities of a great elder law attorney. She has held positions of responsibility in professional organizations (Chair, Missouri Bar Elder Law Committee; Founding Member and past President, Missouri Chapter of NAELA; Fellow, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys; Fellow, American College of Trusts and Estates Counsel) and her volunteer efforts in the community are numerous. She has received professional awards including the prestigious Powley Award (2008) presented by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and has received Volunteer Awards from the Alzheimer's Association, the Brain Injury Association and the St. Louis County Older Resident Program. These are the only ones I know of and I am certain there are others. She is without doubt a preeminent Elder Law Attorney.
