I retained Elder Law Services last year to handle a huge claim of $258,000 made by the Department of Health Care Services against my mother’s estate. Due to Ms. Carino’s stellar efforts DHCS has decided not to pursue their claim, much to the relief of the entire Kokuga Family. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable, always followed up and displayed excellent client communication skills. She made a very stressful situation manageable. I can not commend elder law services highly enough. Many thanks for all your firm has done.”

Bridgetfrom Canyon County, CA


After reviewing the video of Mr. Judd Mcilvain, I decided to contact Mr. Judd Matsunaga for my dad to reapply for Medi-cal. My dad was denied because of his assets. At the first meeting with Mr. Matsunaga, he explained clearly and patiently how he could help to get the desired outcome. With confidence, we let Mr. Matsunaga handle the application process. About 2 and 1/2 months later, we got the results as expected. Mr Matsunaga is a very experienced attorney, and his staff is very knowledgeable, professional, caring and responsive people. With no hesitation, I recommend any senior or family of senior to let Mr. Matsunaga handle your needs for Medi-Cal benefits. My sincere thanks to Mr. Judd Matsunaga and all of you for your diligent work, patience, and valuable assistance."
