Dave has been practicing in the area of elder law/nursing home Medicaid planning since 2009. He is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and participates actively in multiple groups of elder law attorneys to stay abreast of the ever-changing Medicaid rules and to ensure that he is providing the best advice for his clients. Dave enjoys working with individuals and families to help provide peace of mind that their care or the care of a spouse or parent is being safeguarded, while preserving assets for the family.
