When my mother went into a nursing home at $12,000 per month, we expected that she would outlive her funds and that we would be making an application to Medicaid. Laura was recommended to me by my accountant. At the initial consultation Laura recommended a course of action that eventually made a very substantial financial impact on the outcome. Our case was complex and we were initially denied. Laura applied her expertise and great effort and we prevailed in court. We are very thankful for her representation. Also, greatly appreciate Laura’s staff. Michele and Kathy were very helpful and supportive during the entire process. Thank you Laura and staff. – R.M., 5/1/19

Ms. Ergood and her staff were of great assistance to us in preparing legal documents for my elderly parents. They were comprehensive, responsive, professional and very pleasant and caring. We would highly recommend this firm for elder law issues.. – M.D., 12/12/18
I cannot say enough good things about Laura Ergood and her staff. If you are looking for an elder attorney, you don’t need to look anymore….I doubt you will find anyone better. Laura took me on as a client when I needed to get my mother‘s finances in order and also go through the Medicaid process for eventual placement in a long-term care facility. My mother, having had Alzheimer’s, had lived with me for a long time with a caregiver, but was running out of money for home care. Laura took on a massive and very complex and complicated mess of finances and was able to piece it all together. Her knowledge, tenacity, guidance, care and compassion helped get me through this difficult process. Her and her staff were so organized and thorough … they did not miss a thing. I could not have done this without them.
Laura and Her staff were always accessible and responsive to any call or email I made. Every one of them was kind and patient with all of my questions and concerns.
I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her. I still can’t believe she accomplished all she did… she was truly amazing. – J.S., 11/8/18

She is helping with estate planning and trust work and explains very complicated issues pertaining to the Medicaid look-back period etc. so well and easy to understand – even for my 85-year-old father.
