I’m Hayden Soloway of McIntyre Elder Law. My guest today is Samantha Yelton. She’s going to talk to us about her experience with McIntyre elder law.
Samantha, we met at the world series, you were looking at the booths, and McIntyre Elder Law had one set up.
I had previously thought about contacting an attorney to help me with protecting my mother’s assets, and I just happen to see the booth and of course elder law caught my attention. I went over and Greg was there. He introduced himself and I spoke with him. He told me what he was able to do. I gave my phone number and it went from there.
Tell me a little about your mom?
She’s in her late seventies. My father passed away about two years ago, so she’s by herself, and I was just trying to prepare for her future.
What about you?
Well, I’m a mother, I have one son and I’m a home care nurse for Hospice Cleveland County. I really enjoy my job. That’s something I’m passionate about is helping others.
Since you needed information about your mother, what did Greg suggest you do for her. What kind of work did she need done to prepare?
I’d gone to him to find out more information about the Ladybird Deed. It was something I’d heard about in the community and through working for hospice. The term had been thrown around and I wanted to see if it was something we could use to help protect her property, in case she ever needed to go into a nursing home. Also, she had a health care power of attorney and durable power of attorney, but I felt they needed to be updated since my father’s death.
What was your experience of working with Greg and getting the Ladybird Deed completed?
I came to the office and I told him what I wanted. He provided information and told me step by step what I needed to do. There were things I needed to take care of on my end as far as getting titles transferred into my mother’s name. Once all that was done, Greg and his team took care of it. They were very knowledgeable and professional. It was a good experience.
