Client Testimonials


I obtained Benjamin B. De Forest to represent me and my mom for Medicaid assistance. It was a hard journey with many bumps in the road and I really believe had I not hired Ben with this issue things would have went much differently. He did an amazing job, and I am so thankful for the positive outcome. Mom is in a place where she will get skilled nursing for her dementia. Ben treated us like people, not numbers. He kept me informed during the entire process. I live 3 hours away and he always kept me up to date on the situation. I am so glad I hired him for this difficult endeavor.

Ben worked with us to get both our Mother and Father qualified for Medicaid. Our Father had been in a nursing home for two years and my mother was joining him. He helped us work through all of the regulations and requirements of Medicaid and the Nursing home. We were very comfortable working with him and would definitely recommend his services to anyone.

Benjamin deForest helped my mother become approved for medicaid as quick as possible while preserving a percentage of her assets. The nursing home does not have to get everything. Mr. deForest used a tool that complied with medicaid and showed me how to work with it. You would be hard-pressed to find a better lawyer and you will be able to tell right off the bat he’s a good one.

When my aunt became ill we were suddenly faced with overwhelming decisions. She was admitted to a nursing facility immediately and important decisions had to be made. Ben DeForest was HIGHLY recommended by the nursing home as a skilled elder attorney.Ben is very patient, kind and genuine as he led us through the process of estate planning. He was always more than willing to answer any questions we had. As we were faced with some unusual circumstances, Ben was able to guide us through the process with outstanding results. Been exceeded our expectations. Should we need an elder care attorney in the future, we will not hesitate to hire Ben once again.

After my sister was admitted to long term care with multiple medical issues, it became evident that we needed help navigating the complexities of payment and subsequent application for Medicaid. I was relieved to learn that it was possible to preserve a portion of my sisters assets for her children.
BenDeForest was able to advise us on the law and created an irrevocable trust document. I live in another state. Ben did the necessary legal paperwork and footwork while communicating with me as needed. We are very grateful and highly recommend Attorney DeForest to others in similar situations.
