Our family would like to extend our sincere heartfelt thanks to Chad Nelson and the Law Office Team at Jeremy W. Howe for their legal expertise and expeditious services. We were unaware of a significant change in the law scheduled to occur as we were overcome with grief due to my father’s untimely terminal illness. Had Chad not brought this change in the law to our attention and expedited the legal process including several trips to the nursing home to work with my father we could have lost our family home. When you are dealing with the care of a terminally ill family member, having a legal team that is knowledgeable in elder care and expeditious is of utmost importance. For our family it gave us the peace of mind to focus what little time we had left on caring for my Dad. It also gave my father the peace of mind knowing that my mom was in good hands and all legal matters taken care of! Forever Grateful; The Family of Robert D. Silvia Sr.
