"Samantha Shepherd and her team at Shepherd Elder Law Group came into our lives at a critical point for our parents' care and life choices. I can say with heartfelt conviction that the firms extreme skill (particularly in the area of veteran benefits) combined with creative caring guided us to the answers we needed to move forward. I recommend the firm to you whole-heartedly."

When I heard that my mother-in-law might be eligible for VA benefits, a friend suggested calling Shepherd Elder Law Group. They were able to provide me with all paper work that was required, a list of items that would be needed and then explained how to obtain needed documents. After paper work was completed, we had a meeting to check that all was done correctly, so that process would not be slowed down by missing or incorrect documentation. The benefits were received very quickly and I could not have done it without them.

Samantha Shepherd and colleagues have been unbelievably helpful in moving through bureaucratic hurdles and uncertainties, enabling both my parents to have the good hospital and other medical care they needed and deserved as their lives drew to a close. They are a group of very caring and responsive people, conscientious, extremely well informed, and somehow able to shape the impossible situation into a workable plan. My brother and I wholeheartedly recommend their services.

I endorse Samantha Shepherd's work as an Elder Law attorney. She is intelligent, knowledgeable, insightful, analytical, passionate, empathetic, and current on the law. She places her client's interests first, and exemplifies the highest standard of ethics. I refer clients to her who call me but who need a Western side of Missouri Elder Law attorney. She treats her clients in the manner she would want her family to be treated. I highly recommend Samantha.
