WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Needed to come in to get specific advice for our needs. The attorney spoke to us in terms we could understand, coming to our level and did not make up feel uncomfortable. They were very considerate and caring. We didn’t feel rushed. We felt like they cared and knew what they were doing.
We were wonderfully satisfied. Wayne did an outstanding job of explaining, diagramming and answering questions and concerns.
They were courteous, efficient, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.
Very helpful. Our children and us are are confident in your group.
"Very professional, covered all, expertise, friendly, peace of mind now."
So much of a client's high or low opinion of an organization depends on their welcomed feeling. I felt that every time I visited the office, every person I talked with listened and took action on my concern or questions! They were also very friendly.
From phone calls to signing the final documents I was treated with respect, kindness, and understanding by Wayne & Jenn. Every business that wants their business represented well should have someone like Jenn & Wayne. They both made me feel relaxed and assured I was at the right place at the right time at this time in my life.
All of the paperwork was completed in a timely matter. Wayne was very good in explaining the trust to us.
Thank you for taking care of my finances after I am gone. I worried about probate once; hopefully this has been solved. Everyone was very polite and helpful. Thank you Katie for answering my questions, and also Jenn.
This Avvo rating is killer and so deserved! You are the best brother! The only thing is I think the 10 rating is too low, in my book you go to 11! Congratulations on the award, you should be very very proud. See you at your Holiday party, thx for the invite.
Everyone at German Law was helpful and pleasant. I felt good about my decision, I thought I was doing the right thing for myself & my family. Wayne took his time and didn't rush, which is good because a lot of this can be over people's heads.
Very interesting, informative and valuable information and ideas.
5 STARS! Thanks for allowing this to be on a webinar! Very interested in this topic.

Estate Planning with an Elder Law Focus
Elder Law encompasses several different aspects including Incapacity Planning , Long-Term Care Insurance, Medicaid Planning, Nursing Home Planning, and retirement living, just to name a few. Our Grand Forks, ND Estate Planning attorneys can help customize an Estate Plan, which can include provisions for your future care.
With proper planning made ahead of time, you can rest assured that you will receive the kind of care you deserve even if you are unable to mentally and physically care for yourself.

Nursing home costs are averaging $125,000 annually. It’s difficult to imagine how you’ll pay for long-term care.

By including a Medicaid and Nursing Home Plan into your Estate Plan, you can set into motion several triggers, which will move your assets around so that you qualify for Medicaid when the time arises.
