client testimonials

I have found Coulson Elder Law to be a very caring, professional team. They were very helpful in getting all my mother’s paperwork in order. Coulson Elder Law walked me through the process, saving me a lot of time, stress, and legwork. They have always been prompt in returning my call with the needed answers. I would recommend Coulson Elder Law to anyone trying to organize the affairs of an aging parent. - V.B.

Thank you so much for all the work you invested to help my father obtain his VA Pension. I had no idea there would be so much to do. Each of you were great to work with and showed the utmost concern for our family. If I had attempted to do this on my own, my Dad would not have his much-deserved pension today. The time invested was well worth it. - P.L.

We were more than happy with the services provided by your very capable team. Every person we encountered at your office from the receptionist to the attorneys were so courteous, kind, helpful, and very efficient. They all made us feel comfortable in a setting that makes us very nervous. - C.B.
