We have been working with Elder Law of East Tennessee on the very complicated matter of planning for my mother and father-in-law's estate. Neither of them have done any pre-planning and unfortunately they are both now suffering from early stage and progressed dementia. The team at Elder Law of East Tennessee are FANTASTIC!!! They have developed a clear, concise and comprehensive plan to facilitate the care that our family members need, while at the same time protecting their assets as well as directing us for future planning for them. I cannot say enough positive things about this team. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in a similar situation or to anyone who wants to pre-plan their estate. Much appreciation to Julia, Victoria, Kyra and Jill, although the ENTIRE team is AWESOME!!!! Thanks so much for making this process much smoother than we could ever have imagined. We handed you a box of lemons and you made us delicious lemonade AND and lemon pie :)

After exhibiting minor symptoms of dementia for some time, my 82 year old father fell and broke his hip. After the hip surgery my father’s dementia increased significantly. My 80 year old mother and my sister and I were quickly overwhelmed and we needed help. My parents had a small but significant “nest egg” of life savings.
When we first visited Elder Law of East Tennessee, Amelia and her staff made us feel most welcome. Amelia had already analyzed our situation and she was fully prepared. We sat in a private conference room where Amelia made diagrams on a white board and used layman’s terms to explain all of our options and her recommendations. These methods were exactly what we needed to easily understand what our choices were and exactly how Elder Law of East Tennessee would be able to help us. This was just a preview of the excellence and professionalism that she and her staff have consistently demonstrated from day 1. Incidentally, we have just signed up for our third year with Elder Law of East Tennessee. We could not do all of the things they are doing, nor would we have time, nor would we even know how.
Besides their outstanding estate and benefits planning, Amelia and her staff provide outstanding customer support. They promptly return emails and phone calls and they are proactive about the changing needs and conditions of the dementia patient and the patient’s immediate family. They even make visits to my parents’ home to help with benefits forms and agency questions by telephone and in-person visits. This is a huge help for my parents as they are easily confused and have great difficulty with complicated subjects. Amelia and her staff have earned our trust and our gratitude. They genuinely care about their clients and we have experienced this first hand time and time again.
I have nothing but the highest praise for Amelia and her staff. Elder Law of East Tennessee has been a blessing to us during these challenging times for my parents and my family and we would be so much worse off without their help. A heartfelt “Thank you” to Amelia, Julia, Jill, and Kyra.

The entire staff, from Principles down, were unbelievably superb. They sincerely care about the "Elderly" and went over and above for my mother.
Bailey was wonderful to work with, she and 2 co-w
orkers even came to my mother's nursing home at the last minute to have final papers signed before she left for out of town! I would highly recommend them as did an elder care attorney in Asheville and two nursing facilities. more »

Thank you for your comments, Debbie! We are delighted that we were able to provide a positive experience for you and your mother. Bailey and her assistants were glad to visit her for her document signing. We understand that it's not always possible for folks to make it in to our office, so we try to make things as easy as possible. We hope your mother had a smooth trip!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Elder Law of East Tennessee. Julia Price and her professional team of associates have gone above and beyond in representing their client’s interests. They have treated my family more like “family” than just clients. At the initial meeting with them they took the time to outline with me their approach for accomplishing and understanding all that was involved with reaching our ultimate goal. They have handled my mother’s interest in an expeditious manner even though the process was an extremely complicated one. All members of their team appear to work harmoniously and they have always been available to answer any questions that I have had regarding the procedures necessary to assist my mother’s case. I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone who needs legal representation for themselves or one of their aging loved ones. more »

We want to express our gratitude for all you have done for us.
The friendliness of the people we met was reminiscent of warmer days in our society, the patience you showed us as you had to expla
in things (sometimes several times) was exemplary, and it was comforting to know that you were far more aware of our needs than we were.
You gave us a decidedly better experience than we could have anticipated and we thank you,
Joe and Cathy Moretz

I was very skeptical when we first were briefed and oriented on ELET services and costs. The price for twelve months of estate planning seemed quite exorbitant and I questioned the value to my elderly parents, given their advanced age and limited assets. After an extensive family discussion there was mutual concurrence to proceed with ELET's program. The team of social, legal and financial resources went to work and within 6 months the revenue of our parents was increased to the point that 2/3 of the initial investment was returned to their savings account. Additionally, new legal documents were provided, which were much more comprehensive than previous documents my parents had prepared several years earlier. Various deeds had to be quit-claimed to help protect the asset, which ELET performed completely. Jill, the social worker, has made numerous trips to the house to help our parents with various social services, which has provided a much improved standard of living. The increased revenue has allowed for professional care-givers to be hired to help with daily chores such as vacuuming, meals, laundry, showers, and errands. This is a very comprehensive approach to estate protection, while allowing accommodation of individual family circumstances to maximize resources. I highly recommend ELETs team approach to estate planning. more »

A little over one year ago I was looking at what I thought was a train wreck getting ready to happen. My sister had multiple health issues, was not managing her medication well, was not willing to get medical attention, was not happy and was not living in a very safe situation in her home. A friend introduced me to Elder Law of East Tennessee and they were engaged to help us develop a Life Plan for my sister. With their help my sister now resides in a lovely assisted living facility, we have assistance with the cost, her medication is under control, she is safe and has a significantly improved social setting ... and is much happier. Looking back I needed a caring, knowledgeable and professional group to help me get to where we are now and Elder Law of East Tennessee was that group! more »

Amelia and her staff helped us with life planning and organizing our insurance and assets -- they were all unfailingly polite, generous, friendly, and helpful. Everything was explained clearly, the documents were all in order -- and in the one case where they were not, everything was corrected instantly and completely. Planning for the future is never easy, but it's so important, and Amelia and her office made it as simple and stress-free as possible. We are very happy with our experience and would definitely recommend Elderlaw to anyone with legal needs. more »
