Dear John and Nancy,


Thanks to you, my wife Shirley is now receiving skilled nursing care for

a degenerative disease and the financial aid to continue that care. Your

excellent skills, broad experience and dedication to succeed were key to

acquiring that financial aid.


Before this when I could no longer provide care for Shirley at home, I was

very concerned about eligibility for financial aid. After consultation with us,

you took our case, created a plan and made it work. You worked with us

closely to help assemble financial data and you prepared everything in a

caseworker friendly format, maintained interfaces with caseworkers,

nursing home personnel and other agencies as well as keeping us informed

every step of the way—keeping my worries at bay.


Please accept my sincere “Thank you” for helping to make it possible to keep

Shirley safe and comfortable for as long as needed.


God Bless You!



Dear Mr. Payne,

I am writing you to let you know how much I and my family appreciate the legal assistance you have provided to my parents, Carl and Frances Parker and later for your assistance in settling my mother’s legal affairs and eventually her estate.

Your advice and skill with my parents’ finances ensured that my father Carl was able to receive the finest nursing home care during his battle with Parkinson’s disease. At the same time you helped my mother protect her assets so that the care my father was receiving wouldn’t drain all of the financial assets they had accumulated during their careers. This enabled my mother to enjoy her retirement while still protecting/providing the financial resources that she eventually needed herself when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Regarding my mother’s estate, your advice kept a large part of her estate out of Probate court saving us much trouble while settling her affairs since her passing.
Your assistance to my family has spanned at least 25 years and we have benefitted much from your fine legal advice and skills.
With deepest appreciation, Thank You!! For all of your help.

Finding Attorney John Payne was an answer to many prayers.  His knowledge and expertise in Elder Law and Special Needs Trusts certainly sets him above other attorneys in his field.  Trust me, I met with ten other attorneys before having the pleasure of being referred to Attorney John Payne.  It was also obvious to me that he is a man who sincerely cares about people; a man who strives to make life better for his clients and their families.  I am extremely grateful for his help and would recommend him to anyone!
Thank you John, what you did for me freed me from the financial boundage associated with being terminal and disabled.  Life from here on out should prove to be much easier to navigate! I wish you all the best~
Sincerely, Amy Meadows Gwidt

Dear Mr. Payne,

On Behalf of our family, I would like to thank you for your good work in securing the best possible outcome for our parents. What you accomplished with the Medicaid staff was, in the words of a Port Huron lawyer, impossible. Your knowledge of the law and proper procedures was a lesson for us, our financial people in Marysville and the FIA staff in Port Huron. You took us all to school.

I strongly recommend you, without reservation, to any family who has hard-earned family assets to protect. The nursing home savings alone are over three thousand dollars per month.

Thanks again to you and your staff,

Sincerely yours,
Walt S.

P.S Feel free to give my name and # (586-XXX-XXXX) to any prospective client.

When it comes to legal matters, I am the most ignorant.
Thank God we have someone that knows what he is doing...that would be you. This is the very reason I refer people to you.
Thanks again.
