Vanarelli, please let us know how it went.

Peter:

“We initially hired Mr. Vanarelli’s law firm to initiate a guardianship proceeding on behalf of our young adult son with special needs. While we were at it we decided to update our wills and related documents. From the consultation through the court order, we received thoughtful consideration of our needs, advice, guidance and support, along with expertise and experience. It was a stressful process for us that was made much easier by Don and his very caring staff. and we achieved our goals without any unnecessary stress or problems.”

Bob and Joan:

“I don’t normally write reviews, but we were so impressed with the legal services of Don Vanarelli, that we wanted to share with others how great our experience was. We first noticed Don from his social media presence and his history as an elder law attorney was clearly extensive and award winning. We hadn’t changed our will in years and had many life changes that needed to be addressed.

We met with Don and his team to get the ball rolling. His staff is very polite, professional and knowledgeable. The process started with an in-depth questionnaire that addressed a multitude of issues that we would never have thought of. It gave us a great opportunity to address things like Long Term Care insurance, digital assets and trusts to name a few. It also gave us the chance to talk about uncomfortable issues- living wills, what to do if one of us is incapacitated, and of course what happens after we pass. Not just arrangements, but services and burial vs. cremation. We were particularly impressed with his suggestion of storing all passwords in a spot that can be easily found by either spouse or our children. We would have never thought of that. The actual will itself was the most comprehensive and detailed of a document that you could wish for. Every item is spelled out in detail with our wishes to be fulfilled.

Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better experience with such a difficult and time-consuming task. We would recommend Don and his wonderful team to our best friends and that is the highest compliment I can give.”

Stephen and Susan:

“Couldn’t be happier with the professional legal services provided by Mr. Vanarelli and his entire staff.  We were referred to his Law Offices by a friend of the family when my 93 year old independent mother, who lived alone in her own condo took ill.  Mr. Vanarelli spent a great deal of time explaining the complicated Elder Care systems during a very personal and emotional period of time, identifying federal and state programs that were available both immediately and long term.

Legal fees, which we found to be extremely competitive, were detailed in writing after our first consultation.  Since retaining Mr. Vanarelli, we have worked closely with him and his staff throughout the entire process of transitioning my mother from independent to assisted living.”
