Florida’s Highest-Rated Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorney

Elder Law

As people age, they often find themselves in need of care; and the money to pay for it. Our elder law division helps seniors through the complicated task of obtaining and coordinating county, state, and federal benefits to provide and pay for this care. We have successfully obtained these benefits for thousands of seniors, many of whom were told they were over income or over assets to qualify.

    Dealing with the grief that comes with the loss of a parent, spouse or other family member takes time. But at some point, you probably start to have questions about the estate.  What property and accounts existed? Is there an estate plan and will estate administration require court supervision?  Where do you start?

    I discovered Mortellaro Law by Googling 'best estate planner' and Mortellaro Law stood out as I read the hundreds of well deserved 5-Star Reviews! Michelangelo is such a knowledgeable attorney, is so thorough, and listened well, asking lots of questions during our consultation. And what we loved most.....he has such integrity! Because we'd had all of our estate planning documents prepared several years ago by an attorney that he knows well, he took the time to review all documents and told us we didn't need to change a thing! He covered other important aspects of long-term care and my husband's military benefits. We were so impressed and pleased with his knowledge and honesty that we have already passed his contact information on to several friends as well as our son and daughter.

    Mr. Mortellaro is knowledgable, compassionate and results oriented. He took the time to counsel us on issues related to our family will and trust. He was direct, did some research for us and referred us to another attorney that can help us take things to the next level. I would highly recommend his services and hope to use him again in the future for other family members.

    Michaelangelo and his entire team at Mortellaro Law were wonderful to work with throughout the entire process of revising our parents advanced directives. The documents themselves were extremely thorough, precise, comprehensive, and clearly written; much better than the documents they'd had done at a different firm. I would highly recommend Michaelangelo and Mortellaro Law as an elder care attorney. He really knows his stuff, and he and his paralegal Susan were a pleasure to work with.

    I worked with this firm regarding financial arrangements and Medicaid for my Mother before she passed. I mostly worked with Jeannie Galloway and she was very pleasant to work with and always responded to every question in a timely manner. After never being able to reach an attorney I worked with previously, contacting this firm was a decision I am glad I made. I highly recommend them.
