Veterans’ Benefits

Lisa Dillman and her team are exceptional. A lot of emotion goes into estate planning and they treated my parents with the utmost care and respect. We mostly communicated with Bryan during the process and he was simply the best at keeping us informed and on-task to completion. He treated each question as an opportunity to teach us and give my parents confidence in their decision making. The risk of my parents contracting COVID-19 made executing the final documents challenging but they went above and beyond. Bryan drove over an hour away from his office so my parents did not have to travel to Indianapolis during the pandemic. My brother and I are relieved that an updated estate plan is place and my parents feel confident that their affairs are in order.

Estate Planning Client

They have been an absolute help the last 6 months. We had my in laws do a living will and medical and financial POA. They also helped us get guardianship of my mother in and law and apply for medicaid. They have been so helpful that my parents are now going through the process of living wills and POA. I would highly recommend them. The entire staff we have interacted with has been amazing.

Mindy Settles

Elder Law Client

This law firm is extraordinary. As a former nurse, and caretaker to her own parents, now deceased, Carol combines a deep empathy gained from personal experiences with a tremendous knowledge of the law. I went through several iterations of my advance directive, and as I gained insights with Carol’s help, I was floored by her generosity. She calms, she reassures, she encourages, she is well connected to a wealth of resources, and she understands aging and the hard conversations.
Applegate & Dillman Elder Law also offers a number of seminars, twinning the psychology and legalities of elder care with planning one’s own estate. I benefited immensely from these practical strategies.
