– Bridget from Canyon Country, 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.”

– James and Shirley from Torrance, CA

“I’d like to express my deepest thanks to Judd Matsunaga and his wonderful staff at Elder Law Services of California for helping us get my elderly mother, who’s been ill, approved for Medi-Cal. Now, our situation, as it turned out, was not so straight forward and I now know there’s absolutely no way I could have filled out the Medi-Cal application the proper way in order to avoid government recovery. It would’ve been a HUGE mistake, that would have cost us dearly, if I had gone ahead and applied on my own in a foolish attempt to save a few bucks. We literally could have ended up being forced to sell our family home in order to pay the recovery bill. I’m sure glad I had sense enough to take advantage of Judd’s FREE Medi-Cal Evaluation Consultation before I actually did anything. Boy! Did we ever dodge a bullet? Anyway, if you’re thinking about applying for Medi-Cal. Do yourself a huge favor and consult with Judd first. It’s FREE and you might even end up saving your house like us. Again, I can’t thank you enough.”
