[Elder Law Long Term Care Planning] When my mother became ill and was unable to live alone anymore, I was going in circles trying to decide what to do. There was no financial plan. I turned to Goff and Goff. They set me up with a plan for long term care, up to and including final expenses. They were courteous, efficient and very helpful.

We had some pressing questions regarding the care of my Mom – since they now live in Oklahoma. She has Alzheimer’s and it is close to the time for her to need other care options. Add was very timely in answering questions, making suggestions, and recommending a great Elder Care Attorney in OK. His information really gave my Dad hope and helped him start moving forward.

[Elder Law and Nursing Home / Medicaid Planning] I had been struggling with some questions concerning my mom and her house for a few months. I had talked to people, social workers…lawyers…friends and family and no one could give me any concrete answers. I was searching for someone that might be able to answer my specific questions, found Mr. Goff doing a google search and I am so thankful to him who within a few minutes was able to answer the questions that I had been struggling with. If you are looking for an elder law attorney, please give him a call, I don’t think that you will be disappointed.

Great Person. I came to Goff and Goff clueless after a car accident. He and his wife were so nice and explained everything so thoroughly. He got me into the doctor the very same day which was great because I actually had a sprain that I did not know about. Add Goff is a great person and lawyer.

I am a family physician who got into trouble with the feds. Ad and Shelly helped navigate me through the legal channels and I am again a free man under a two year supervised federal release. I was able to get my medical license back less than three months after my release from a short federal sentence and am in the process of getting a job as a doctor. With my lawyers advice and help, I am now in a position to be happy again and I can’t tell you how much that means to me.
