Helping with Kancare and Estate issues
I hired Lisa Ward to help our family getting help for our mom to get on Kancare and now we are working on the estate. The office has been more than helpful especially Stephanie . We are still working with the firm at this time but have been very pleased and without them helping we would have been lost and not know what to do. They have answered all our questions and guided us in legal matters we could not have been able to do. Thank you both for all your help. I would recommend Lisa if you need help with an elder attorney and planning an estate or other legal matters with elderly family members.

Excellent service with our estate planning! Picked a professional!
We hired Lisa to complete a trust, will, powers of attorney and tell us what we needed to know most about planning our estate. She was very comprehensive and explained medicaid for long term care as well to us. We felt cared for and she explained everything in ways we could understand well.
