In my research, I found the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and connected with James Siebert & Associates…Making that connection has been one of the best decisions I have made. James and his staff are not only passionate about their work they are compassionate about their clients. I will always be grateful for the guidance I received from James and his staff

I was excited to have such an honest and well versed attorney with your inter personal skills and expertise. I needed an elder law attorney who was proficient, honest and who could work with the bureaucrats involved with the Medicaid process. I can honestly say that I was so glad I met with and hired you
