Life Care Plan
Mom and dad, the year before we came here moved five or six times because dad wasn’t happy with where we were living, and we reached out here. I forget how. I think we were just driving by and, I'll tell you, that was the best decision we ever made, especially for me because I was still working and taking care of my mom who had Alzheimer's and my dad. You know, it was quite a lot on the plate, I just wish we would had done it ten years before. We would have saved so much money by coming here and getting the kind of help we got. This firm is definitely more like a family. You can't fake caring. You know, I used to be a retail manager. I can train you in all the mechanics, but caring, I can't. You either have it or you don't. You guys have got it.
Tammy, Gloria, you know, with Mom and Dad, they were there, especially Rep DeLoach. I mean, I knew he really cared, and Dad, once he met him, that was all he needed. He wanted to go ahead and do it. Just have them to be able to help me with having Gloria visit the Freedom Square, or Brookdale, Seminole, keeping tabs on her when I couldn't, that was awesome.
I'll tell you, we were about ready to sell the condo, and we found out if we would have Dad would have lost his VA benefit. I mean, we were at the point where we found a buyer, and if we would have done that, it would have been a major mistake. We didn't even consider putting either Mom or Dad on Medicaid. We found out, yes, for mother, we could put her under Medicaid. There was a lot of things about the law we didn't know. Like Rep said, "It's the things you don't know that hurt you the most." He never spoke such true words, because like the condo, and there were other things like that that, honestly, the normal person's not going to know. You need someone, like a Rep, who knows the law.
When Dad and I, we were heading to the grocery store on West Bay, and we were getting ready to turn. There was a school crossing the road, so we stopped. The person behind us decided to go around us, and when they saw they couldn't, they came back into the lane and they hit the car. I couldn't believe it.
Not only with Paul Cavonis but Rep, everybody stayed in touch with me every step of the way. The communication was excellent. The caring was excellent. How are you doing? How's dad? How's mom? That means a lot. I mean, not just talking business. Again, you can't fake caring. You either do or you don't. They get to know you. You're part of the DeLoach & Hofstra family. There's a lot of lawyers out there, but I'll tell you what, I've recommended people here, and I'll continue to recommend people here because I know whoever I send here will be taken care of just like I was as a part of the family. Caring, follow up, given information every step of the way. That's very important, and I couldn't ask for anything better. I don't know why anyone would go anywhere else.
I never dreamed with the car accident that ... I guess it was just an example of went after the person for their maximum on their liability insurance. They didn't even try to negotiate. They just agreed to it. I'm sure it was the communication that Paul gave to them.
I'm just so thankful for Paul and Rep and Tammy and Gloria, everyone, and Ashleigh, everyone here.
Honestly, if they needed my help with something, I'm right there. That's how I feel this firm. You're not going to find anybody that knows the law, they specialize in injury, estate planning, to help with title change over to mine. Right then, right after Mother passed away, after Dad, the last thing I was even thinking about was the title. But you guys were thinking about it. You already knew about it. You'd already set up the condo just to roll into my name. I didn't have to do a thing. Believe me, if you're looking for a lawyer, that's what you need because when you go through something like that, it's emotional at best. You're not going to be yourself, and you need someone that's going to be looking after your interests. Paul did, and so did Rep.
I would recommend DeLoach & Hofstra to anyone for any legal work you need. If there's something that they can't handle, which I don't know what they can't handle here, but I know you'd get them the help they need. That's the true remark of any good business. If they're not able to take care of you, they find someone that will. They have the maturity and the understanding and the compassion to know when they need to get someone else. Not every firm's going to do that.Ron
