 client testimonial
 

Dear David,
February 14, 2008

It is not often that I am so overwhelmingly satisfied with a service, that I feel compelled to take the time out of my busy schedule to write a letter.

David, from the moment that John and I met you, we were very impressed with your vast knowledge of elder law as well as your ability to ease our fears regarding my father's estate planning and financial future. At the end of our first consultation, John and I walked out of your office feeling confident that you could be trusted, and our instincts were correct.

Each and every time that I called your office, you and Theresa were always available to help me with my many questions and concerns. The many times that you both went above and beyond what was expected of you were always very much appreciated.

Additionally, the company that you recommended to help with my father's Medicaid application was fantastic. I don't know what we would have done without them.

In the future, you can be assured that John and I will highly recommend you to family and friends that are looking for an outstanding elder law attorney. Again, many, many thanks!

Sincerely,
Virginia C.
