    Net Worth

    I was in a difficult situation due to the fact that my elderly husband was about to go into long term care. I needed quick and practical advice as to how to see a Medicaid application to its positive conclusion. Atty. Watts immediately put into place and activated a plan which guaranteed my husband’s acceptance by Medicaid and protected my net worth. I didn’t think this was possible. I’m grateful for his persistence and protection.
