“A few years ago when my elderly father became ill, I knew that I not only had to find him the best medical care but also seek sound legal advice in order to protect his hard earned assets. As anyone who has taken care of an elderly parent can attest to, the experience of becoming a caretaker can be overwhelming without the proper guidance.
Although my father is a World War II veteran and I had heard of the Aid and Attendance program offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs, I was uncertain as to whether my father would qualify for the program. After our initial consultation with Angela it was immediately evident that she cared and took a personal interest in our case. Not only did Angela provide excellent legal advice and guide us through the application process, she also assisted us by providing guidance regarding my father’s assets. With the help of Angela and her excellent staff, my father’s application for VA benefits was approved. I continue to use the services of Angela and her capable staff and highly recommend them to anyone seeking elder care legal services.”

“I first met Angela Manz at a workshop she did about Veteran’s Benefits in 2009. I was impressed with her understanding of the eligibility policies and procedures for the Aid and Attendance program that is available to veterans who need assisted living care.
My father moved to an assisted living facility almost four years ago. His level of care has changed as he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. He needs specialized care for dementia patients. I have consulted with Angela to explore options and resources to ensure that he receives the most appropriate care. Even though my parents had an estate plan in place, it has been necessary to review and revise the plan to meet the increased costs for his care. Angela has helped me prioritize the spending of his assets in addition to considering Medicaid and establishing an irrevocable trust.
During this time, Angela has become not only a consultant for my father’s care, but also a trusted friend. She has been available for questions through emails and phone calls. I strongly agree with Angela’s saying that her “ practice is not just business, it’s personal”. Angela has responded to simple questions as well as referrals in a time of crisis. She is understanding of the emotions that are involved in difficult decisions.
I have recommended Angela to my friends. If you need help with caring for an elderly parent, I recommend her services to you too!”

“My mother’s family has a very strong history of Alzheimer’s Disease, so when Mom started showing signs, we knew we needed some professional legal and financial advice. After Mom, my sister and I met and interviewed Angela N. Manz, a specialist in elder law, we were comfortable with Angela’s knowledge, her plan for Mom and mostly her ability to connect with Mom. I didn’t know how complex dying without being dead can be. What we got was a helping hand to carefully guide us through minefields, e.g. Veterans’ Benefits/Affairs. Angela has a wonderful staff that function cheerfully and seamlessly. Speaking with anyone on the team is like speaking with Angela.”

“I had no idea what it meant to qualify for Medicaid a few years ago, when a stroke demanded long-term nursing home care for my wife. Another spouse with similar circumstances told me about Angela and all she had done for his family. I learned quickly that this qualification would dictate our financial future. The legal process was overwhelming, but Angela and her firm removed that burden and gave me the peace of mind to focus on my wife’s recovery. It has now been four years, and in that time Angela has maintained a professional relationship with us, all the while extending compassion and concern for our well being. I highly recommend her and her entire team in meeting your long-term care needs.”

“My initial meeting with Angela was to establish a trust and other necessary documents for my dad who relocated to Virginia to spend his final years. It was a pleasure getting to know Angela. Her team are friendly and professional. Every question was answered in a manner that was understood by everyone concerned. Angela has since done a trust and updated our wills for me and my wife. This law firm cares about their clients. I give them highest regards and recommendations. Well worth the time and effort for the future. Be prepared. Keep up the great work. Thank you all.
