Words From Clients
“Our family is very grateful to have found Attorneys Neal Rice and Tamer Tandros. Let me say to any family who is in the position, as we were, of having to deal with applying for Medicaid Long Term Care – do not try to do it on your own. That said, you could not be in kinder, more responsible hands than with Neal and Tamer. They guided us every step of the way and it can be a long, frustrating way. Every one of our phone calls, emails and texts were answered quickly. When, occasionally, they didn’t know the answer to a question there was immediate follow up and an answer provided. On behalf of my mom and our entire family, we thank them for their diligent efforts and couldn’t recommend them more highly.”
“I would like to express my gratitude to Neal Rice in helping me acquire [eligibility] for the programs need[ed] to help my mother [who] is in a nursing home. Neal was eager to help me through the paperwork and programs needed to make sure that she is comfortable in the home that she is in. He was also able to get a new Power of Attorney written up. That has been a great help as her original was over 10 years old and needed an update. Neal made himself available at a moment’s notice. Neal has been very helpful. I appreciate his good attitude and interest in assisting me with the phone calls and mountains of paperwork.”
“I was a bit apprehensive about having an attorney handle my mother’s VA benefits claim, however, my instincts were that Neal was a “Straight Shooter” and I felt good about the information he presented at the seminar. Not only did Neal and Tamer handle my mother’s VA benefits claim, I also had them handle her Medicaid benefits claim as well.
I am extremely happy and pleased with the results as Neal and Tamer delivered on everything they said they would. Both the VA and Medicaid benefits were approved. Neal and his team have been very responsive and I will certainly use them for future legal matters.”
“We recently requested the services of legal services and worked directly with Neal Rice to assist us with the development and updating of various estate legal documents. Neal was extremely responsive, comprehensive, offered professional counsel and guidance, and completed the requested information in a timely manner. We strongly recommend the utilizing of his firm and more specifically, his services.”
