Read what they have to say here.
Each member of our team brings experience and an understanding of how estate planning is an important topic in our community. As a firm, we strive to provide our community with utmost professionalism and offer them the right blend of service offerings tailored to their needs.
Specifically, we are unique in that we have an experienced Social Worker on our team who brings an added layer of education and awareness for both the firm, our clients, and community. Why is this important? Read more about our Outreach Coordinator, Alix, below.
“We are knowledgeable about services and resources but we are also familiar with the barriers to services that our clients face.
Our lawyers are educated on the Innovations Waiver,. We stay informed about laws and policies that impact our clients and their ability to seek care in a way that fits best with their family and loved one(s).
We stay connected to local agencies and organizations that provide services to adults and children with disabilities so we can make appropriate referrals and suggest beneficial resources, instead of turning them away due to lack of knowledge or bandwidth.
There is a wealth of information available, however our goal is to make it accessible and curated to the individual.”
