We met with Michel for a consultation. His insight, valuable information, and available resources labeled him an expert in VA benefits. He is a servant at heart, wanting to help Veterans with challenges. We would highly recommend him as a professional attorney.

Michelangelo Mortellaro, has been nothing short of fantastic in helping with my husbands affairs. Being a young couple, we thought there was time for this type of planning further out in our future. Unfortunately a devastating accident changed that for us in an instant. This law firm has been a lifesaver to us, always prompt and efficient, but kind and personable at the same time. They came highly recommended to us, and I can see why!

Receiving a free consultation from an Elder Law Attorney gave me the peace of mind I'd been searching for. I now know Mortellaro Law where I have to go and who I will ask for the advice of Mortellaro Law.to assist me when ready.

My parents lived out-of-state and transitioned from ‘seniors’ to ‘elderly’ in a short time frame – I was now their caregiver. I spoke with a few Elder Care attorneys before I was fortunately referred to Michelangelo Mortellaro. He addressed all questions relative to VA qualifications, helped secure my father’s VA benefits, and on his passing, Spousal Benefits for my mother. I’ve worked with Michelangelo on a Living Will, Personal Services/Caregiver Agreement and a Qualified Income Trust. Through each step in the process, he and his team (Machelle, Ann, Jeannie & Anna) provided help wherever it was needed and they were always courteous and professional. If they weren’t immediately available, they got back to me promptly. They made a stressful and arduous process attainable – let their expertise become yours.I cannot thank Michelangelo and his team enough for their compassion, knowledge and support throughout the whole process. I have referred a few friends to Mortellaro Law, and each has been very positive about the service and very satisfied with the results. I highly recommend Mortellaro Law.

My husband and I were very impressed with Attorney Mortellaro. His knowledge regarding elder law was incredible as he explained all details of this topic to us. This is a quality law practice from the minute we walked in the front door. The office staff was very kind to us. We highly recommend Attorney Mortellaro to anyone seeking elder care.

I had the pleasure of talking with Alina. She was very helpful with probate for my mother's Checking account. She advised me how to get the court order processed. I filed on Thursday and Saturday had my court order in the mail . I am very happy she was able to guide me how to process. Now i can sleep better at night.
17:57 02 Jun 20
The entire team at Mortellaro Law was personable and professional. Great experience while making a trust and will.

Michelangelo and his office have been a huge help to our family! Anna who handles the scheduling, Susan the paralegal and Michelangelo are all wonderful to work with and extremely knowledgeable. So grateful we found them, and will always use this firm for all our estate planning needs.
19:39 20 May 20
I highly recommend Michelangelo Mortellaro and his staff they are kind compassionate, understanding, and walk you through the process. They answered all my questions and addressed my concerns in regards to my moms VA and Medicaid qualifications. They processed the applications in a very timely matter even though the approval process for the VA was much longer than anticipated. I truly believe Michelangelo and his staff really had my mother's best interest at heart and I believe that is a trait that is very hard to find in this time. The most important thing to me besides my mother's best interest they helped alleviate my stress and ensure me that my mother would be taken care of.
20:40 16 May 20
Very professional experience with everyone we encountered! Appreciate how kindly they treated our family and how quickly they were able to complete the estate planning. Thank you!

We are most grateful to Michelangelo Mortellaro, PA, and his staff Machelle Vanderlick and Ann Bancroft for assisting our parents in securing long overdue VA benefits. Not only did they successfully secure benefits for my father before he passed away but then continued to successfully pursue Spousal Benefits for my mother. Their level of professionalism, perseverance, and integrity in dealing with this matter was above and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend Mortellaro Law for VA Pension Benefit issues.

Mr Montellaro is a guru in the area of elder law as he recently guided our family through the nuances of MD LTC Waiver and VA Aid & Attendance benefits application processes for our Mother. The entire process was a positive experience from beginning to completion.Michelangelo walked us through the steps for the Advance Directives of POA, Healthcare Surrogate, and Living Will, along with Personal Services/Caregiver Agreement and Qualified Income Trust guidance. We felt like a VIP customer during every interaction with him and his team, and all this occurred within our budget.It is rare to find such a qualified and yet humble professional rolled into one, and we are blessed to call ourselves customers of Montellaro Law!
17:44 01 Apr 20
I've known Michelangelo professionally for a number of years, and find his approach to law to be inspiring and his staff always great!
18:25 22 Mar 20
This team is more like family! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Susan and Mary. They helped me and my Mom plan, and then were instrumental in helping me after my Mom passed. Everyone in this family is about helping people, especially in the tough times. After my Mom’s passing, Mary walked me through exactly what to do, it made everything much easier during a challenging time. Can’t thank everyone enough for what you have done for me and my family.
17:48 18 Mar 20
Great office, everyone is so sweet and helpful and really helped my parents . Thank you for all your help!

I’ve spoken with Attorney Mortellaro multiple times. Sincerely cares, great communicator, clearly knows his stuff, highly competent, etc. In short, I would give him and his team 6 stars if I could. Honestly, I couldn’t be more impressed or satisfied with their services.
16:26 28 Feb 20
The first time I spoke with Mr. Mortellaro he was very informative and understanding. I hired his firm to do a qualified income Trust and we had a couple of hiccups but as soon as mr. Mortellaro was made aware of this he contacted me immediately and went out of his way to make it right with me which is very unusual in the business Arena today. I wanted to let people know the even if there are problems along the way they will do whatever they need to do to help you and make it right and for those reasons I will recommend this Law Firm to anyone I know that needs help with elder affairs
01:59 28 Feb 20
Went to Michaelangelo's office to have my will prepared - it was quick and painless with his help!
20:58 17 Feb 20
If you are taking care of an elderly parent and it gets to the point where you can't provide the needed care any longer this is the attorney office that will help you through the process of getting Medicare and Medicaid to help qualify for long term care. DO NOT TRY TO APPLY ON YOUR OWN, I have other family members who had a similar situation that were attorneys themselves, not in elder care law, try to navigate the Medicaid application and got denied 3X before getting help. I immediately called this office, they were so easy to work with and anything I needed they were glad to answer. This was my first experience with doing any of this and they got it done the first time out!! I can't thank them enough for what they have done for my family!
12:40 11 Feb 20
Extremely knowledgeable, comfortable atmosphere, listens to your concerns and answers questions, provides guidance. Excellent experience. Everyone needs to make their wills as early as possible to protect their family and assets, I would highly recommend picking up the phone and calling Mortellaro Law.
21:41 10 Feb 20
Literally one of the best lawyers I have ever worked with. This firm is top notch is very single way. The work product is second to none and the customer service is over the top!!

needed to get my advance directives updated and Michelangelo’s office helped me and they were quick and I thank them for the help
16:31 30 Jan 20
Amazing Group of people! They understand the importance of Elder law and worked around our schedule! Thank you:)
15:55 30 Jan 20
Highly knowledgeable attorney and staff. Michelangelo is very personable and thorough. Our recent experience with him and his staff in assisting with my wife's elderly parents estate was extremely smooth and thorough. I would highly recommend him and his staff to those seeking consultation regarding wills, trusts and benefits.
14:00 30 Jan 20
My Family used Mortellaro Law for our estate plan. Michelangelo did an excellent job explaining our options and we are very happy with our documents. I also love that they will meet with us every year going forward to make sure our documents stay up to date.
19:19 29 Jan 20
I worked with Jeannie Galloway at this law firm and she went above and beyond to assist me a for Medicaid application for my mom. She was professional and compassionate throughout the entire process. She educated me and guided me through this unknown process of Medicaid application and consideration of approval. I would highly recommend the law offices Montellero Law.
16:59 28 Jan 20
This place is awesome! The staff is very knowledgeable and Mr. Mortellaro is wonderful. He gave me a free consultation and then called me back when I had an additional question. He is very patience and answers all questions thoroughly. He has a wealth of knowledge and I was blessed to have found him. We used his services and the price is very affordable. I would highly recommend anyone with elderly parents and medicaid issues to contact his office! I have noting but excellent things to say about him and his firm!
03:07 17 Jan 20
Helped us with VA benefit and trust. Highly recommend with NO apprehensions. Nothing had to be done a second time or resubmitted. The bank representative said he had been setting up trust accounts for years and never had one so well prepared or approved so quickly. Asked for the name of the law firm.
00:32 09 Jan 20
Extremely Pleased with my experience with Mortellaro Law. I unexpectantly became the overseer of the care of an Elderly friend and Veteran who didn't have any family. Due to the nature of the care needed I reached out to Mortellaro Law for guidance. They walked me thru the process and took care of getting me the Health Care Surrogate and Power of Attorney needed to proceed. This included getting the Medicaid coverage and Trust fund set up that's required for Medicaid Coverage. Their professionalism in handling this process was outstanding and I highly recommend them for you Legal needs.
11:16 06 Jan 20
I am very pleased with Montellaro Law. The benefits of a trust vs a will were clearly explained and I am confident in my decision. Highly recommend.
02:43 03 Jan 20
Michaelangelo was great to work with! He helped my wife and I determine what Will-related documents were best for us and our situation without any up-selling pressure. Michelangelo and his team then coordinated and communicated all of the details in a professional and friendly manner. The whole process was very efficient and seamless!
14:36 24 Dec 19
Wow - we are so happy we found Mortellaro Law! Machelle, Jeannie and Rich have been incredible and walked us through every step of helping our elderly father get his finances in order. This law firm is professional, responsive, caring and really knows their stuff. We highly recommend them! Jeannie and John, Colorado
14:00 18 Dec 19
Ann Bancroft helped me with getting my mother Aid and Attendance through the VA and it was a perfectly smooth transition. She paid attention to all of the details and assisted me with everything I needed to transition my mother into long term nursing care. I highly recommend Mortellaro Law and Thank You very much Ann!
23:45 07 Dec 19
They are simply the best. He is caring and really eager to help. We dealt with Susan and Aida. Aida told us about Michelangelo and Susan handled our paperwork. If you need a law firm, this is the one to trust. I cannot say enough.

23:13 05 Dec 19
I have been working with this firm for years. I recently had my documents rewritten and Susan was a pleasure to work with. She was very efficient, knowledgeable, and took the time to answer all of the questions I had. She even filed some paperwork with the County for me. I highly recommend this firm.
00:13 04 Dec 19
Absolutely a pleasure to work with....very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. His office workers are also very pleasant and helpful .
14:40 26 Nov 19
I only have positive things to say about Mortellaro Law Firm., especially Mr. Mortellaro himself. He and his staff worked diligently to help me help a dear friend receive her VA benefits successfully. They have offered continued support along the way with any questions or issues without hesitation to help. Mr. Mortellaro and his firm take a genuine interest in the needs of their clients. He is very knowledgeable about what needs to be done and makes the whole process so less stressful for his clients. I would highly recommend his law firm for any Elder Law assistance you may need or your personal estate planning. You can be assured your affairs will be handled successfully, confidently and professionally.
19:16 22 Nov 19
A month or so ago I had a consultation with Michael Angelo. Not only was he kind and courteous, he made me feel like it was okay to have so many questions, and answered them respectfully. He gave me some great advice, and so far things are okay. I highly recommend Micheal and his staff with Elder Law issues.

Michelangelo is a great Elder Law Attorney. He is so knowledgeable and really goes above and beyond for his clients!
03:47 01 Nov 19
Would ABSOLUTELY recommend Mortellaro Law with Medicaid applications. They were quick to reply to initial inquiry, provided clear and concise directions, worked very efficiently under tight deadlines, and were very thorough. I could have never managed my mom's complicated application without their direction and oversight. Great investment for long-term results.
23:49 31 Oct 19
I normally don’t write reviews but due to the exceptional service and guidance I obtained from Michelangelo it was warranted. My mother had become ill and was hospitalized. Due to her critical condition Michelangelo actually met me at the hospital. The compassion he showed especially in such a stressful situation was nothing short of amazing. With Michelangelo‘s help I was able to get my mothers affairs in order. I highly recommend his law form.
20:49 30 Oct 19
I tried for two months to process the Medicaid application myself before I contacted Mortellaro Law. The countless hours I spent were pointless. I spoke to Mr. Mortellaro who assured me it would be taken care of and to focus on spending time with my loved one. This amazing and wonderful woman Jeannie Galloway from his law firm met me at the facility where my mother was and answered all of my questions. She was an Angel who was very knowledgeable and caring. She never once ignored my many emails or questions. I am so thankful and happy to report all has been taken care of. I can't thank you and your team enough. I only wish I had done it sooner.Sincerely The Trimble and Willenburg Family
00:18 18 Oct 19
Every one was kind and professional. I was very happy with the service. Thanks. Ms. Ruby Speights.
20:44 09 Oct 19
Purely by accident I was introduced to the law offices of Mortellaro Law. I wanted to get my estate planning in good order so I called for an appointment. I have nothing but praises for the entire Mortellaro team. The whole experience has handled with the utmost professionalism and I am now extremely calm about what will become of my estate at my passing. I highly recommend Mortellaro Law.
20:54 07 Oct 19
The law firm helped me with power of attorney and living will. Everybody at the firm was very polite courteous and friendly. All the documents were provided in timely manner and phone calls answered and returned promptly. I highly recommend Mortellaro Law firm!
19:00 30 Sep 19
Recently my brother and I had a very helpful phone conversation with Mary Hamilton at Mortellaro Law. When our father passed, much was unknown about his affairs. Mary listened attentively and answered questions we didn't even know to ask. I appreciate her patient and thoughtful support at a time when we needed guidance. Thank you, Mary!
15:47 30 Sep 19
I was new to the Florida area so I had a few questions. Mary Hamilton was more than happy to answer those questions and without hesitation! I walk away with a comfort of knowing I was given good advice. This Law office has my business!
00:54 21 Sep 19
I only have great things about Michelangelo and his staff. The probate department is amazing and has been nothing but accommodating to me and my family. They truly are the experts - Mary’s kindness goes a long way after recently losing a family member. Thank you!
22:09 18 Sep 19
Thinking about putting my mother on Medicaid was scary. From filling out the paperwork to filing, I was terrified. This law firm gave me confidence and security that I was doing the right thing. I would never, ever recommend doing this without the folks at Mortellaro Law. They walked me through every step, answered all my questions and everything went through smoothly. Now, they are preparing our estate planning. Great work and great people that are easy to talk to and always have the answers to our questions without hesitating.
18:00 18 Sep 19
I was so grateful to have the expertise of Michelangelo and his staff help navigate my family get Medicaid for my grandmother. Not only was Senior Case Manger Machelle Vanderlick knowledgeable in her field but was so helpful with all my questions and concerns. Our application with Medicaid went through flawlessly. We are no longer in financial distress, and my grandmother is now getting the long term care she needs! THANK YOU Mortellaro Law!
11:23 18 Sep 19
When my mother went into assisted living she thought she had all her affairs settled, wow, what a nightmare it started to turn into! After recommendations from a few professional friends, I contacted Mortellaro Law and had a consult with Machelle Vanderlick concerning her VA benefits for her service years and her estate planning which was done all wrong by a different person. She clearly explained the process and procedures for VA benefits for her service years, and for her estate also. I can't thank them enough! I had no idea how much could be done and the savings were incredible. I can't thank all of you enough!!
21:55 16 Sep 19
From the first day I hired Mortellaro Law until my mother was approved for Medicaid , the experience was a positive one. They are very responsive and knowledgeable and guide you through the entire process. Jeannie Galloway was excellent and was very explanatory on everything. I would highly recommend this law firm.
17:18 29 Aug 19
Michelangelo and staff are just fantastic. He put together the estate plans for my parents. These documents proved crucial over the last year. Anytime, I had a question concerning their affairs he provided me with excellent information. Thank you for your assistance!
17:39 27 Aug 19
Michelangelo took the time to listen and then ask questions - some that I didn't even know to ask -- to help our elderly family members walk down the difficult path of estate planning. He also gave insight into ways to approach family members in a way that didn't hurt feelings when certain difficult decisions were made in the best interest of the clients. He gave ways to protect the assets of the estate and offered creative solutions for designees for things like executing the last will & testament and making healthcare decisions.I felt like he was giving me the same advice that he would give to his own family. He gave bottom-line answers and was straightforward when necessary in order for us to arrive at a plan that our elderly family members can be confident executes their wishes in the best way possible.
15:01 19 Aug 19
I found Mr. Michael Angelo Mortellaro and his staff to be top notch. The staff were courteous and pleasant on the phone, patient with my questions, and returned calls promptly. Attorney Mortellaro was superb in his explanation of all matters related to elder law, including living wills, revocable living trusts, VA benefits for surviving spouses of a veteran. He is also extremely knowledgeable with Medicare and Medicaid. He is truly one of the "good guys" that has a desire to help however he can. And last but not least, he calls you back to answer your questions.
20:02 15 Aug 19
Michelangelo and his staff were great to work with on my estate planning. Quick and accurate!
14:44 14 Aug 19
Jeannie was more than happy to answer questions. She communicated everything that we needed to get my husband on Medicaid. Appreciated all the help.
18:57 05 Aug 19
The staff at Mortellaro Law were very knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. My mother and I had a very positive experience meeting with them and I would recommend them to anyone.
00:53 01 Aug 19
Fantastic law firm! Very helpful and professional.
22:11 30 Jul 19
I am so lucky to have spoken to Mike Mortellaro concerning my Veterans Administration dilemma that has gone on for years. Mr. Mortellaro spent a lot of time with me explaining my options in great detail without charging me a dime. He is a real good person - one of the best. Would recommend him to all who need an attorney who is patient and understanding.
13:48 25 Jul 19
My family is so fortunate to have found Mortellaro Law during one of the most painful and stressful times in our lives. My father's health and quality of life changed overnight...and being able to afford care to meet his many needs seemed impossible. Michaelengo put my mind at ease during our first meeting and was the perfect mix of compassionate and professional. Jeannie is wonder woman! She went above and beyond to make things happen quickly, reassuring my family every step of the way. She even met us at the rehab while there were contact precautions. I will be forever grateful to Mortellaro Law...and the people who posted the reviews which led me there.
15:32 18 Jul 19
In the unfortunate situation of loosing both parents at one time Mortellaro Law was quick and very informative of my options. Jeanie Galloway was unbelievable and caring in handling everything. I could not have asked for better understanding from a law firm in a time that you cant think straight.
23:56 12 Jul 19
We have been very pleased with the counsel and services received from the team at Mortellaro Law as it pertains to our Mom's elder affairs, including VA and MD LTC benefits. While MIchaelangelo is a guru on these subjects, he is quite humble and explains the processes in layman's terms. The rates he charges for this type of expertise are very competitive, and I highly recommend his company for help with navigating this complicated spectrum of elder law services!
15:13 03 Jul 19
Very professional. Everyone was very helpful and king.
20:57 07 Jun 19
Exceptional staff, very knowledgeable, professional and personable. Definitely felt at ease as every aspect of our trust was compiled. From the first meeting with Michelangelo and Susan we knew we made the right choice and the assistance by Tobey and others to finalize confirmed it. Thank you to every one at Mortellaro Law for making this so easy on us in our time of need.
17:56 28 May 19
A pleasure to deal with such a professional lawyer and his complete staff
15:24 28 May 19
Mortellaro Law did exactly what they said they would do to get my father on Medicaid, and to help protect his assets. This was complicated, and if I (as my father's POA) had tried to do it myself, probably wouldn't have been successful. Their single fee structure allowed me to send emails/calls at any time which for someone as detail-oriented as me is important. In the end, we got approved on the exact day they said they would. Much appreciated, and huge stress relief for me!
02:11 13 May 19
A couple of years back my mom had a bad fall in her home that resulted in a head injury. Her memory had already, at the time of the accident, been failing somewhat, but with my nephew living with her, she was still able to function quite well. After the fall, the subsequent hospitalization, and the rehab stay, however, it became sadly apparent that she would not be able to live alone and I was forced to find a place for her to stay. The task of finding suitable housing for an elderly person with memory loss is, in itself, a challenge. But, though difficult, it is not impossible. Unfortunately, a facility with a compassionate and caring staff in a homely atmosphere comes at a price. And my resources, much like my mothers, were not unlimited. So, I needed help.My father, who has been gone for some time now, was retired military. I knew that there were VA benefits for surviving spouses of vets who had served during wartime, (my dad was a veteran of WWII), but I did not know how to obtain those benefits for my mother. I tried to talk with the VA, but they only confused me. I just didn’t understand their procedures. My feelings of overwhelm and frustration were skyrocketing and and I was unsure of how to proceed. My mom needed these benefits, my father had earned them, and I was failing to procure them for her. What was already a difficult time in my life, was only getting worse.I knew I needed help, so I decided to seek the advice of an attorney. And by pure good fortune, I called Michelangelo Mortellaro. And for me and my family, this was the dawn at the end of a very dark night. Within days of my call I had an appointment at his office. He listened to my entire story, took notes, and asked questions. Then he told me exactly how we needed to proceed to obtain my mom’s benefits. By the end of our meeting, we had a plan. And not a vague, do this and call me plan, but a complete and detailed strategy for complying with all the VA’s regulations. Mr. Mortellaro understood how the VA worked, he understood their procedures, their requirements, and he knew the answer to their questions. The process for obtaining benefits moved along exactly as he said it would. I completed the application for benefits to the VA and within weeks the direct deposits began coming to my moms checking account. My mothers VA benefits check was money sorely needed. But I do not believe it would have happened without the guidance, knowledge, and instruction provided by Mr. Mortellaro. My father made some huge sacrifices during the second World War. He would be very happy that my mom was now receiving benefits for his sacrifices. He would be proud of me for seeing to it that this all happened during her time of need. And, he would be very grateful to Mr. Mortellaro for looking after his family at a time when he could not. And, so too, am I. Vickie McClintock Key

We would like to thank Michaelangelo and his staff for all their help and guidance in dealing with settling our Dad's estate. They were always available to answer our questions and help us evaluate our options. Everyone was very helpful, professional, and caring. We highly recommend their services to anyone looking for help with estate planning or any other related legal issues.
19:18 01 May 19
I was impressed with Michelangelo Mortellaro from my first contact with him. I had left a voicemail message late on a Saturday night that I'd like to discuss my dad's situation with him. He returned my call the next day while on a family outing! Michelangelo's unlimited availability was repeatedly confirmed while working with him and his very friendly firm. When meeting with him in person or on the phone, he never seemed to be in a hurry, addressing each question and concern in a knowledgeable and articulate manner. I whole-heartedly recommend Mortellaro Law for one's Elder Care needs!
19:50 23 Apr 19
Ana Frelita is just as sweet as they come! I called to see if they could help us out with a POA for a borrower as I work for a mortgage company in KS. She went out of her way to help us and was actually working from home sick at the time. I could not have asked for a better experience and will remember this firm if I am ever needing legal assistance in Tampa in the future!
21:46 19 Apr 19
My wife and I had a wonderful experience getting our estate documents prepared at Mortellaro Law. Michelangelo, Susan and the rest of the staff were very knowledgeable, professional and efficient as well as personable and helpful. They spent plenty of time with us to make sure we understood the nuances of the various documents and why we needed them. All our questions were answered quickly and clearly. After going through the process with Mortellaro Law, we’re confident we received the best possible advice regarding estate planning.
11:51 13 Apr 19

15:16 05 Apr 19
Michelangelo at Mortellaro Law was fantastic, He gave us some very valuable information to help understand what direction to start this journey with our Mom on Elderly Estate and Medicaid planning. His knowledge was expansive in this area and he never rushed us addressing all of our questions, make some fantastic points we never thought of. Highly recommend a consultation and his services.
20:39 04 Apr 19
I help take care of 80 senior citizens. In the past I have been part of many will readings and probate disbursements. In every case, the heirs complain about , "What happened to all the money." or" That's not what the will said." It wasn't until I met Michelangelo Mortellaro that I finally understood why. Every case I have been involved in as a Pastor was drawn up NOT to benefit the heirs, not one as they intended before their death. They assumed so, but after the attorney fees, probate fees, court cost, realtor fees , the heirs fighting and Medicare collecting money from the estate. Sometimes the heirs OWED money to the courts. Michelangelo Mortellaro has begun to educate me so now I can guide the 80 in my charge so that truly the wishes of the deceased are honored.

Hello my name is Joseph Kaufman I had to say Michelangelo and his staff were the best I ever had the pleasure of working with. My father needed long term care we went to a attorney in Zephyerhills FL and was given the wrong info and guidance my wife and I were so stressed, Medicaid was so confusing and as mentioned with the wrong info and guidance it was horrible then we went to Michelangelo's office. He is Hands down one of the smartest men I know his staff simply outstanding they not only fixed all the mistakes and got my father set but the did it so fast him and his staff are so efficient it is refreshing to know there are still great people out there. Thank you all so much and I will refer Mortellaro law office to everyone. 5 star for sure!!!! Sincerely Joseph Kaufman

I just had a very informative, free consult with attorney Michelangelo Mortellaro. He was incredibly knowledgeable and willing to answer all of my questions honestly about VA benefits and Medicaid. He was able to give realist estimates on cost of his services. I would definitely recommend that you talk to him about you or your parents needs.
22:32 19 Mar 19
I contacted Mortellaro Law for help with my mother applying for Medicaid. Michelangelo was kind enough to schedule my 30 consultation around my work schedule at a time both my wife and I could be on the phone. After listening to our particular situation he gave us the advice we needed. He gave clear easy to understand answers that spelled out exactly where we were and what we should do. Then he basically told us IF we got to a point that we needed his services he would be glad to provide them, but at this point we did not need his help and that it wouldn’t be fair to take our money. That right there told me I was talking to someone I could trust. If and when we get to the point that we need legal service I won’t consider anyone else. If you need an elder law specialist I would encourage you to call!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Law Office of Michelangelo Mortellaro. Working in the financial services industry for many years, I’ve had to refer numerous clients with Estate Planning and Elder Law needs. The only place I refer to is The Mortellaro Law Office. We’ve worked together on many client portfolios and all clients I’ve referred have been highly satisfied with the way their case and needs were handled by Michelangelo and his staff. I would trust him to handle any of my clients’ legal needs.

Could not make my way up to his office so he handled everything over the phone. Took his time with me and got my case settled quickly and smoothly as I ever could of imagined. If you want your loved ones treated as a person and not just a case number, I highly recommend Michelangelo!
19:16 14 Feb 19
Mr. Mortellaro was more than helpful with all of my questions regarding my fathers options in how he can get VA benefits to completely pay for the medical care center he lives at. I can't explain enough on how much of a blessing his help has been to my father and our family!
16:35 14 Feb 19
Michelangelo is very thorough and possesses a great deal of knowledge in the field that he practices in. The whole process from booking an appointment to their post follow up is very concierge and customer focused while delivering a world class experience/product.

Updated 2/14/2019We have been serving the Hillsborough and Pasco senior communities for over 11 years now. We have worked with numerous Elder Care Attorneys over those years. Michelangelo Mortellaro is at the top of the list. We have referred him to prospects, clients and even our own family members. He is very knowledgeable and hardworking; but just as important, he is very ethical and trustworthy. Over the years as his practice has grown, he has surrounded himself with a very strong team that has helped maintain his ability to provide outstanding service in a responsive manner. Last but not least, we have been impressed with his commitment to giving back to the community. From underwriting Better Living for Seniors events to sponsoring Veterans Recognition programs at different communities to free consultations, he continues to invest time and resources in support of the seniors he serves. If you looking for Medicaid planning services, help with Veterans Aid and Attendance benefits, Estate Planning, creation of Advance Directive documents, etc. we strongly recommend Mortellaro Law.Arthur and Freida MoseleyOwnersGriswold Home Care Tampa/Pasco

By far the absolute best/knowledge/relatable/down to earth elder law attorney around! He is also VA accredited and knows inside and out the intricacies of Medicaid Planning and the VA Aid & Attendance Pension Benefit. I can speak from experience when I tell you that you should definitely call and schedule your free consultation so that you can educate yourself on what options there are out there available to you and your family! 😉

I just wanted to truly say thank you to the firm for handling the case when others said it couldn’t be done because my grandma was over income and had too much assets, but Mortellaro law took care of everything, got my grandma from A to Z and she started receiving Medicaid as well as informing me of the VA benefits she could receive because my grandpa was in the service!!!! I would highly recommend this firm to everyone, Michelangelo and the staff are beyond helpful and truly compassionate especially when dealing with all of my families questions and concerns! Thank you
05:02 22 Jan 19
What a great experience! I was in constant knowledge of what was happening with my case ; Mortellaro law held my hand every step of the way, if I ever had any questions I was able to call and get answers right away. most attorneys offices you call and they tell you they will call you back and then don’t and you can never get direct answers, BUT Mortellaro law is truly a different experience all together! Highly recommended!
19:08 16 Jan 19
We called upon Michelangelo and his staff to work up our estate planning. They were able to advise us of what we needed along with what we did not need. Great experience and highly recommended.

Michelangelo and his team have helped me personally and some of my extended family. Everyone is professional, punctual and knowledgeable.
20:45 16 Sep 18
Michelangelo is knowledgeable and very thorough in explaining the estate planning process. He had previously done some estate planning for my mother-in-law and that is what brought us back to him for our planning. There was some sense of urgency in getting our estate planning completed and they came through for us. Susan was great to work with along the way.
16:05 28 Jun 18
A very supportive and caring practice, especially Susan and Anna.

Referred him to an elderly neighbor I've known my whole life and she was extremely happy with the service he provided and the will he did for her!

Michelangelo and his team are definitely more than capable of delivering quality service and sound expertise. He is very eloquent at explaining complex issues and enjoys educating his clients so that they understand exactly what they are doing before they do it.
19:32 11 Apr 16
My experience with Michelangelo and his staff at his law firm has been impressive. They have a long family history in the Tampa Bay area and have a solid reputation for getting things done. They empathize with your concerns and were proactive with details to make the process seamless. What impressed me most was after I shared where I needed help with Medicaid and VA benefits, Michelangelo was told me that he would not take on my case because he felt like I was doing everything right already and that he would be just taking my money... He said he didn't feel right about doing that when I was already on top of it. However, he did give me his time, he followed up weekly and put in quite a bit of effort in my opinion for someone who "didn't actually take my case". That's an ethical man and company.
10:44 28 Sep 12
very good service for a trust or estate planning agency!
