Testimonial3

“My mom and I just wanted to thank you for everything you have done for our family. We would have been lost without you, and your guidance and understanding throughout the last several months meant a lot to us. Thank you also for the kind professional courtesy on the last billing statement – that was most kind. I’m sure I’ll be calling you down the road for help later with mom (but hoping that will be a while) and with our own future planning. Thank you again for everything.”

Testimonial4

“I just want to thank you and your paralegal staff again for all the help you were to me and to my family. Your advice on the gifting process and all your work in navigating the Medicaid application in general was very greatly appreciated. Having all that work done prior to my dad’s death has made things a whole lot easier for all of us. Although he was never in a position to know anything about what was going on, I’m sure my dad would also have truly appreciated all the kindness and patience shown to us by you and your staff.”

Testimonial 5

Thanks again!”

Testimonial 7

“Kandace was instrumental in helping my parents move into a retirement/medical facility when my Dad had his stroke. She took care of everything from finances to wills. We never could have successfully settled my parents without her guidance and knowledge. Her firm also helped my neighbor with their long term care needs as well. A-plus Service!”

Testimonial 10

“Greetings Kandace…I was speaking with a client yesterday who is the third or fourth client to mention your name; praising the work you have done with their parents or significant other. Being in this business for 11 years now, it is not very common to hear constant praise for someone tied to the financial industry. Just wanted to thank you for the work that you do! Well done!”
