I hired Cynthia Pollock a little more than ten years ago. My sister was in a coma and subsequently suffered significant brain damage. I needed immediate help to get her into a nursing facility, get her qualified for MediCal, and get me appointed as her conservator. There were also mental health issues and courts which initially had custody of my sister. My sister also had some assets which greatly complicated qualifying for MediCal. I don't know if I could have survived all the legal and emotional issues which had to be resolved. Ms. Pollock was able to navigate all the difficult legal issues and provide compassionate support in a very difficult crisis situation.
After all the initial legal crisis issues were resolved, Ms. Pollock did all the necessary legal work to establish a Special Needs Trust for my sister and have me appointed as the trustee of the trust.
In the years since the conservancy and the trust were established, Ms. Pollock and her law firm have represented me for all the accountings required by the court. In addition to the matters handled by Ms. Pollock, her paralegal, Dawn Hartman, has been instrumental in helping me to comply with all the court requirements. All staff members of Ms. Pollock's firm have been professional and competent in all my interactions with them.
In the ten years I have been working with Cynthia, I am constantly impressed with her legal knowledge, her compassion, her advocacy, her competency and her ability to resolve even the most complicated legal situations.
It has been difficult to be a conservator for my sister since I live in Tennessee and she is in California. I do not believe that the courts would have accepted me as her conservator or trustee without Cynthia's representation.
I would recommend her without hesitation. I cannot imagine finding a better attorney.
