Excellent Elder Care Lawyer
“My father and I used attorney Erik Spurlin as our elder care lawyer to facilitate my mother’s Medicaid application once we had to make the difficult decision to place her into a nursing home. Erik was professional, patient and communicative throughout the entire process. He is also extremely knowledgeable and definitely knows his stuff. Erik took the time to explain to my Father and I everything involved with the Medicaid application process and made us feel at ease as they took care of all of the “heavy lifting.” We are truly thankful to attorney Erik Spurlin for his dedication and commitment to helping us during this difficult and stressful time with my mother. I highly recommend Erik for all of your elder care/elder law needs!”
