Our clients love us and we couldn’t do it without them.

After recognizing that our mother would need long-term assisted living care, the reality set in, how do we financially support this need and allow our father to maintain a normal lifestyle.

Medicaid was mentioned as an option, and three different Medicaid support teams were interviewed. After the interviews, Elder Family Law was selected.

A conference call was scheduled with Samantha Carter. After our initial conference call, the family was convinced that we had made the correct choice in choosing EFL and Samantha.

Samantha led us through the process of data and information mining. This process would have been nearly impossible without her leadership and assistance. Her response time to our emails was normally less than 24 hours. She responded to this quickly, even on the weekends.

The process of requesting and receiving Medicaid assistance was completed within the timeframe set by EFL.

If you need to secure Medicaid assistance, we strongly recommend teaming up with Elder Family Law and Samantha Carter.


My father was referred to this firm when it became evident that we needed to move my grandmother to a nursing care facility, given her physical condition and age.

Family Elder Law was knowledgeable, thorough, and quick in answering all our questions, providing guidance and advice, and providing all the needed support.

After going through this process, it's clear that it's absolutely essential to have the expertise of a knowledgeable and niche law firm, and Family Elder Law is the best of the best.

We would recommend this firm to anyone in Florida seeking guidance and advice on matters of elder care.

Our experience was outstanding! Thank you so much for your attention to our case!!


We are so happy we decided on this firm to do our estate planning.

Perfect from start to finish. When I see all 5-star ratings, I am apprehensive. I would give them 6 stars if possible!

They answer all questions, and they take as much time as needed. Douglas is our attorney and is highly recommended.


I love Family Elder Law. Everyone who works at Family Elder Law is attentive, professional, and responsive.

I would hire them again and recommend them to anyone needing legal services for their specialties. They resolved our issues, kept us up to date on the progress, and made sure we didn't miss any information or details.

Excellent service and wonderful people! Thank you all!!!


Samantha and the entire staff of Family Elder Law carefully listened to our needs and desires, professionally explained our options, and prepared a complete and thorough solution.


Our family has been so blessed with the utmost professionalism and kindness by the Elder care law firm and staff. They treat you like family.

Always compassionate and willing to help. We could not have asked for a more knowledgeable firm to guide us. We know they are a phone call away or stop by.

You are always made to feel welcomed with a smile and a greeting.

We know we are in the best hands possible, and my Mom loves the fact that they are never too busy to help her.

We highly recommend this firm.


My husband and I came in to plan our estate and we were very impressed with everyone we met at this facility.

The reception staff members couldn't have made us feel more welcome or respected; they made us feel important. Samantha Carter is extremely knowledgeable and has the patience of a saint as we dogged her with questions until we understood all the legal terms.

She made us feel like family and put us at ease by inviting us to "contact her at any time" with questions.

Samantha gave a wonderful first impression of herself and her company, proving a huge asset to her team.


I have used this firm to help with plans for two parents now who had vastly different elder-law issues.

Jason and his staff were very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive in both situations.

I can recommend them to anyone without a moment's hesitation.


Samantha was SO helpful!!! She quickly responded to any questions and made it very easy to communicate.

Both Jason and Samantha are so down-to-earth, easy to talk to, and compassionate. They even went to the nursing home to meet with my Mom and took documents there when she needed to sign them.

Couldn't have asked for a better experience!!!


Rebecca was extremely helpful. I felt very safe knowing Family Elder Law was helping my husband and me with our Estate Planning.

Rebecca was very responsive and personable.

They gave us all of our documents in a nice, organized notebook which is magnificent.



We are grateful we chose Family Elder Law for our estate planning. After reviewing our paperwork and listening to our desires and concerns, Samantha discussed our current and future options in a way that we could understand.

She is very knowledgeable, has compassion and respect, and makes us feel comfortable.

“Family” is the perfect word for this group. We are confident they will be there when we need them.


We have always had a close and personal relationship with our elder care attorney, Mr. Jason Penrod, and his associates.

His entire professional team, including Samantha, are among the most caring, thoughtful, and kind people. Jason's quiet manner, caring nature, and professional acumen are among the best that one will have in the legal profession.

We feel fortunate to know him and recommend him for elder care legal matters.


They are very knowledgeable and willing to find answers to questions they are unsure of.

I would rate this firm as outstanding and recommend them over and over again.


Family Elder Law was extremely helpful to our family when trying to get our dad through the Medicaid application process while preserving his assets in order to keep him in an Assisted Living Facility.

Samantha was very thorough and answered all our questions.

They are the best!!!


Jason and his entire staff were incredibly professional, understanding, and personable.

The services they provided were very thorough. A very special thank you goes to Supervisor Samantha Carter.

This firm is simply outstanding!


Rebecca and Jason were excellent and very compassionate throughout the whole process of preparing my Estate Planning documents.

Stephanie and April were very professional every time we communicated.

Initially, I was concerned about the time frame and logistics of this process; however,Family Elder Law did everything very efficiently and was helpful along the entire process.


The staff at Family Elder Law are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and professional.

The laws regarding Elder Law are so confusing for the "average Joe" that it is almost impossible to navigate successfully what to do when preparing all the proper documents needed to be "legal" in the State of Florida. (I also believe Jason can help with other States as well)

Our Family would highly recommend this firm for ALL of your Elder Law needs and concerns.


At a very difficult time in my life, it was so comforting to be served by compassionate and knowledgeable professionals.


Elder Law has been extremely helpful in navigating long-term care for my father.

Samantha’s support and guidance are such a comfort.


Family Elder law has helped us get our house in order.

They are people who care and know what to do for you when you need help the most.

If you are looking for peace, give them a call.


My first impression with them was great. They make you feel like family. They are ready to listen to your needs and answer all your questions to make a decision about what you want and what you need. They were very professional and kind.

The best skill they have is they listen and give you recommendations. When you have all the answers, it is easy to make decisions. They will give you the cost of your legal documents, like living will, living trust, etc., and when your documents are going to be ready.

They will contact you by phone or email and are easy to reach all the time. We have so much peace of mind now. They will make copies for you and your beneficiaries.

I recommend them very highly. It was a pleasure having them do our legal documents.


When my husband had a stroke, and it became apparent that he would need long-term care for the rest of his life, I was very overwhelmed.

Long-term care is incredibly expensive, and I was fearful that I would lose everything my husband and I had spent a lifetime building.

Jason and Samantha put me at ease right away and walked me through my options, helping me formulate a plan of action. They worked on my case and kept me informed along the way until a favorable outcome was achieved.

I could never have done this on my own. This is an unusual law practice in that every staff member is extremely knowledgeable and efficient but also kind and compassionate.

I feel very blessed to have found this firm.


I recently visited the office for some help with estate planning.

I found their personnel to be very friendly and caring. Rebecca Klepacki was very helpful.

I will not hesitate to call upon them again if necessary.


This is truly a helpful place for families to put their affairs in order.

My wife and I were surprised at the important things to do like avoiding Probate, ensuring beneficiaries are reviewed and provided, and having a Living Will, things we overlook, so I strongly recommend consulting with them.


They have competent, caring, friendly, and knowledgeable staff.

All of our experiences have been positive.

We are very grateful that Family Elder Law is a phone call away if and when we need assistance.


If you need advice and counsel about how to handle your affairs and final arrangements, this is a one-stop professional powerhouse specializing in drafting Wills and Trusts.

This firm listens to your wants and needs and tailors a personal plan to carry out your last wishes to the letter. There are many special needs, laws, and rules in dealing with the government; as we mature, everyone wants to keep what they have worked hard for and have it used wisely.

Jason and his professional staff will sit down and listen, caring for you like family. Can't say enough nice things about these folks.


As the husband of Myrt, words cannot express what this Law Firm did for us.

Had it not been for them, I cannot imagine the future problems that would have faced me upon the passing of Myrt. I urgently advise anyone who has to go on Medicaid to PLEASE seek out legal counsel.

Family Elder Law is very much up to date and extremely well versed in all facets. Also, they were not overly expensive.

They have the Elders as their first priority. Again Thank You, Samatha, for all you have done.


I truthfully have not one negative experience to report! Our primary legal representative was Samantha Carter.

Any questions or unexpected circumstances were answered and handled very quickly.

For any legal decisions and representation in elder care law, I wouldn’t go anywhere else!


From the initial consultation to the present, Jason and Samantha have been impeccable in their knowledge and service and an incredible asset to our family assets/business.

Whether I call or email, there is a response, if not an answer to my question, immediately.

I highly recommend this firm.


I reached out to Family Elder Law for help with securing my mom’s money.

They were very kind, helpful, and got it taken care of quickly. Dalmary was exceptional!

I would recommend them over any other local company/attorney working with Elder Law.
