Thank you for your interest in our firm! Our client testimonials below should give you the best idea of what we do and how we do it.  We are truly thankful to have such loyal clients who allow us the privilege of representing them.  Their kind words about our law firm truly inspire us to continue working as hard as we do in each and every case. The testimonials below were contributed from our clients directly.

Because of the personal attention we provide and our unique approach to each client’s case, our firm has received outstanding reviews from several satisfied clients over the years. 

After dealing with a loved one’s death where there was no will and multiple legal issues, I realized that I needed to put my own affairs in order. A friend recommended the services of the Elder Law Center. I had no idea where to start, or what was involved in making a will or appointing a power of attorney.

Additionally, I have a disabled loved one that required special consideration. Mr. Haley and his team were wonderful. They answered all of my questions thoughtfully, and explained the process and documents thoroughly. It was my intention to put things in order so that when the time comes, my loved ones will not have the burden of legal and financial uncertainty, and the Elder Law Center helped make that a reality.

I cannot say enough about this Mr. Haley and his staff!! The help they provided for my parents and our family well exceeded my expectations. Not only are they very prompt in responding, they are extremely knowledgeable, caring and dedicated to doing everything in their power to help. My parents are elderly, failed to plan ahead and an unexpected health situation left me and my siblings at a complete loss.

During a very difficult time, this group stepped up, took charge, and made us feel like family. I strongly recommend this firm!!! I cannot say enough good things about each and every person I worked with!!!

My mother recently became a Life Care Planning client of the firm - I was looking for a miracle and I found one. I live in Florida and my elderly mother in failing health did not wish to leave her home in the Basset, VA area.

I was in town but by the time I contacted this team, I only had one business day left before I had to return to Florida; so they made special arrangements to meet me after hours at their office.

That was a little over a month ago, but it seems like years that I have known Cricket & Laura. They immediately (next day) went to work on securing EVERY area of my Mothers life. And due to my mothers failing memory, not a second too soon. Her finances, her meds, her doctors appointments, grocery trips, home safety, home maintenance, yard maintenance, immediate DSS evaluation ...I could go on....if it exists to do, they are dealing with it for my mom. All to honor my mothers wish to remain in her own home. On my own, I could not have done what they have done; this service is a blessing.

They have treated her like gold. Laura Gall is a former LPN (I believe) and she has been "hands on" almost every day. We get reports about their activity with every decision or move they make through a shared CareZone app.

I have no brothers and sisters, and no other local family on which to rely, but I have found something better with this team. There is no amount of recommendation I could give to cover what this has meant to us, and no amount of gratitude I could show that would be adequate.

I can't thank Robert Haley and his staff enough for all the help they have given my husband and I as we worked through the process of putting our wishes in writing. First, Mr. Haley reviewed our estate planning documentation from before, which had been in place for years. Since we did not have a specialist in elder law at the time our original documents were put together, we had many problems with our existing paperwork. Robert was so patient and explained the loopholes and why it was important that these gaps be addressed and corrected now to protect what is important to us for the future. We have worked hard all our lives to save money for our retirement, and knew if we did not get the proper documentation in place now, it could all disappear! Robert helped us get our WillsHealthcare Powers of AttorneyLiving Wills, and our Durable Powers of Attorney all corrected. We now rest in the knowledge that the important first steps towards protecting our assets are in place. The services of Robert Haley and his staff have been invaluable to us. I know that in the future if issues arise, and when we need assistance with Medicaid Planning, they will be there to assist!

Robert Haley is highly recommended! I have benefitted from Mr. Haley's services quite a bit over the last decade. He helped resolve a matter between the numerous heirs of my grandparents that would otherwise likely have dragged on for years, if not decades. Mr. Haley also wrote a new will for me, providing much advice along the way. He then advised and facilitated the formation of a family limited partnership. His no-nonsense competence was just what I was looking for and appreciate.

Robert Haley is an awesome attorney! Extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, expedient, informative, thorough, and moderately priced. I have used Robert on several occasions & he is always so willing to help anyway he can. He also has an excellent staff. I absolutely recommend Robert Haley as a super attorney choice.

He gave information helping us when my mother was aging and we faced nursing home care. He helped transfer property into all names and developed a plan for saving assets anticipating going into a nursing home. She passed away before needing a nursing home, and he answered questions about probate.

Our son was severely handicapped and totally dependent upon us . We went to Mr. Haley with many problems. He was able to sort thru those problems and find solutions for us. He promptly returned phone calls and email. We found Mr. Haley to be knowledgeable, caring and totally trustworthy.

I thought we were going to have to spend down the vast majority of my parents assets. Fortunately we found Mr Haley and not only did he help us ensure Dad's placement in a long term care facility, he was able to protect the assets for Mom! If you have a loved one in or going to the nursing home, you have to see Mr Haley and his staff!
