We Wrote the Book!

We literally wrote the book on Ohio Medicaid planning and eligibility. We are authors of the Ohio Medicaid Manual, which is considered the leading resource for
attorneys across the state of Ohio.

Each year, we publish an updated version of the book, and we host a seminar to educate attorneys on the Medicaid regulations and how they can help their clients qualify for Medicaid. Since 2008, we have trained hundreds of attorneys practicing in this area.

We have over 30 years of experience serving the elderly and disabled communities, so we know how the rules have changed and how the Ohio Department of Medicaid looks at cases.

If you are an individual in need of an elder law attorney, please use the contact us form and one of our attorneys will get back with you. If you are an attorney and want to discuss a client referral, please call or email us with the facts of the case.
