Confident. Comfortable. Reassuring.

America is a land of great opportunity. Most of us work hard and act responsibly about saving for our retirement and building wealth to hand down to future generations. Unfortunately, because of the high cost of long-term care, many millions of Americans see their lifetime of hard work disappear in a matter of just months or a few short years when they enter a nursing home.

Attorney Stan Sims turned his legal career toward focusing exclusively on elder law in 2000, after receiving a phone call from a frightened woman whose husband had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. While naturally worried about her husband's health, her fears instinctively turned to losing her home and retirement savings. Stan worked hard and successfully found Medicaid options for legally protecting the family's assets from nursing home costs.
