What People Are Saying

Give Carol Applegate my regards. I greatly appreciate her help with the difficult situation with my mother 4 years ago. Best call I ever made was to your office.

Lisa Dillman handled my elderly mother’s affairs in what turned out to be Mom’s last two years of life. Lisa’s diligence and good advice ensured that Mom had sufficient funds to pay for her needs and that we were prepared for any contingency. Lisa established a trust for Mom; advised us to rent her house to bring in much-needed income; helped Mom secure veterans’ benefit to which she was entitled as the widow of a WWII veteran; and prepared power-of-attorney and other pertinent documents – all of which eased my mother’s life and has made it much easier for me to take care of things since her death. All of this – including responding to my frequent phone calls and emails – came for one set fee that we paid up front. Lisa and her staff – all of whom are friendly, readily accessible and thorough – earned every penny. I highly recommend her.

Over the past three years, Lisa Dillman and her staff have provided exceptional legal service in the creation of an Irrevocable Trust for my parents and in the preparation of Last Wills and Testaments for my wife and myself. In each instance she demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the numerous aspects involved and took great care to explain them in a clear and intelligible way. Lisa was as personable and down to earth as lawyers come. My parents, wife and I all felt confident and comfortable in our interactions with her. In preparing the many documents related to the matters mentioned above, Lisa took pains to address every possible contingency. Any attorney worth his or her salt, of course, must be detail-oriented, but it was obvious to us that Ms. Dillman was particularly interested in doing right by her clients, us–to cover all the bases and to deliver the very best service of which she was/is capable. We really appreciate Lisa’s expertise and professionalism and know that we will be calling on her again throughout the course of or lives.

Lisa very competently and clearly explained the options we had available to us as an elderly couple. Having her as an advisor as we made those decisions was extremely helpful. The stress we had been experiencing as we tried to plan our future on our own, was immediately and greatly relieved after our first appointment with Lisa. Her interaction and connection with our adult children was an added plus.

I would highly recommend Lisa. She was invaluable in developing an elder care strategy for my wife’s parents which included creating a trust. She also created a will for my wife and myself at a very reasonable price.  She is always extremely responsive and knowledgeable.

Lisa was extremely helpful in guiding my brother and I through various procedures as we moved our parents from their home of 62 years into an assisted living facility. This was a very stressful time for us since our mother suffered from dementia, and we knew we would have more medical issues to deal with for her. The first step was to qualify our mother for Medicaid. Lisa’s knowledge of what the law required was excellent, and we felt confident in all her recommendations. She and her staff not only filed the necessary paperwork for my mom, but also followed up with the Family and Social Services Administration on her behalf. Lisa assisted us in an updated Durable Power of Attorney for our parents, which included giving us the authority to make financial and health care decisions. It was very thorough and covered every eventuality. She even visited our mother, who was in rehab after a fall, to explain the power of attorney changes. The financial recommendation that we set up an irrevocable trust for my parents has been very beneficial too. Lisa also worked with an elder care advisor to qualify our father, a WWII veteran, for a stipend from the VA to apply towards his assisted living expense. She and her staff always promptly answered my phone calls and e-mails. She was always able to answer our questions and from her experience and knowledge she gave us helpful options as we tried to make good decisions for our parents as they transitioned into assisted living. I know we could not have done any of this on our own and it was a tremendous weight off of our shoulders to have her help. I know we can call Lisa with any issue we might have in the future.

I thought Attorney Dillman and her team did a phenomenal job with assisting my family with our estate planning and elder care concerns. They were quick to respond, helpful and compassionate to our particular situation.

Lisa Dillman helped me with issues related to my mother’s eligilibity for MedicAid. She provided solid support and answered my questions in plain English. She also allowed me to manage some of the required submittals myself. She was a great resource.

Lisa worked with us on securing financial help from Medicaid when we had to place our father in a nursing home. Her fees were reasonable and she continued working on the case until she had the best possible outcome for us. Lisa is knowledgable, personable, and diligent, and I am planning on working with her again in the future.

Lisa is one of the best elder law attorney’s I’ve had the privilege to work with. I refer all my clients to her because she’s compassionate, knows how to communicate difficult maneuvers for Medicaid eligibility and reasonable.

Seemed very knowledgeable in this complex area of care and taking action assisting my mother to enter into elder care, Medicaid and wills, trusts and all the complex issues that accompany these issues.

I met Ms. Dillman to discuss options for my elderly mother who is in a Nursing Home, and was to receive some Inheritance funds from her brother. She has been on Medicaid assistance for the past two yrs. Ms. Dillman stepped in and was in communication with the attorney handling my uncle estate and work diligently to make sure we know how to manage these funds to mom’s best advantage. WE had teleconferences since I live in Fla. and mom is in Indiana. She was very supportive of my concerns for her future care and provided excellent advise on how to manage this money to best keep most of it for her care. I would highly recommend her for estate planning.

Lisa has advised me several times on various legal matters. As my attorney, Lisa drafted a legal document which took a huge burden off my shoulders, she covered every possible loop-hole and made it possible that I was well- protected legally. She is also representing me on another case which we just started and I feel confident with her legal experience and knowledge of the law, we will prevail.

Lisa represented me during a custody case involving my two-year-old daughter. She constantly checked up on us to see how we were, and kept me informed on all information and documents. My favorite thing about Lisa was that I could talk to her like a friend, rather than a legal figure. She understood, from a mother’s point of view what was going on in my head and heart and did everything in her power to keep my mind at ease. She still occasionally checks in to see how my daughter and I are, and I would recommend her to anyone.

Lisa Dillman has served as trusted legal counsel for my small business for 12 years. She has handled contract agreements, debt collection , and risk management with ease. An astute observer, careful listener, and thoughtful strategist, Lisa exceeds my expectations every time. I highly recommend her firm to any small business seeking highly qualified and expert legal counsel.

Lisa Dillman and her colleagues were responsive, helpful, and caring when it came to taking care of me. I did not feel as if I was a client. Lisa truly does care and listens so intently to her clients needs. The honesty and integrity that Lisa and her colleagues represent is insurmountable. Thanks Lisa for all you have done for me…

Lisa handled my child custody case back in 2011. She was extremely thorough and was very knowledgeable regarding the custody laws in the state of Indiana. I have recommended her to others who are in need of a great lawyer.

Ms. Dillman was hired to create wills, power of attorney and health care representative documents for my two children. She met with them individually to determine what their wishes were and advised them on options. She answered questions throughout the engagement. She was professional, approachable, and available.

Lisa and her team helped us during a difficult time for my parents. She would even respond to our questions that we had over the weekend by email. With me and my wife having a very busy work schedule that made it very helpful for us in trying to get all the paperwork back to her team. She met and was very compassionate to my parents. And would answer any questions that they may had with their living trust. Me and my family feel very comfortable with Lisa and her team.
