We CARE Veterans’ Resource Fair

Nelson Elder Care Law took part in the 2-day ‘We CARE Veterans’ Resource Fair’ event held on May 13-14, 2022 at the Cobb Civic Center as a participating veteran sponsor. Our firm provided elder law and qualifying for veteran benefits information. The We CARE Veterans Resource Fair is a division of United Military Care, Inc. and is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Serving Veterans in Georgia.

Super Roll Contest

Our team rallied the community together for toilet paper donations for Cherokee and Cobb County seniors. We held a contest between our two offices to see which would receive the most donations. Our Marietta office collected 1,335 toilet paper rolls, while our Woodstock office collected 1,665+ donations! The ’Super Roll’ contest was a fun way to engage with business partners to raise awareness of this essential need for seniors in our communities.

Red, White & Blue BBQ

We were excited to be a co-sponsor of the inaugural Red, White & Blue BBQ put on by the Veterans of Cherokee County, Georgia, held at the American Legion Fairgrounds. Proceeds from the event benefited the Cherokee County Homeless Veteran Program and supported veteran suicide awareness with the Cherokee County Suicide Coalition.

Hear From Our Clients

“On the threshold of retirement, we finally decided to quit thinking we could self-prepare the requisite documents. We had previously had only a very simple will. We needed the necessary legal (including updated will) & health care docs but didn’t want to deal with the time & complication of legalese. Cindy made the process relatively painless. She took the time to explain and answer questions without trying to upsell services. We were done in 2 meetings plus the reading of emailed drafts. In addition to preparing the documents, Nelson Eldercare will be there when our adult children need advice on executing the plans we’ve put in place.So glad it’s behind us and would recommend Cindy and her helpful staff.”

- Bonnie

Cindy and her company treat their clients like family. Nelson’s offers clear, direct, and honest guidance in planning for your families security and future. No one wants to actively sit down and make these decisions, but Nelson’s makes this process seamless. I was so impressed with their willingness to answer all questions big or small. So glad I made the decision have them help my mom and dad and now me. You can’t go wrong with Nelson’s Elder Care Law.

- Hope

The very best elder law attorney and staff anyone could ever ask for! I have referred a number of clients to Cindy and she never disappoints. She is kind, caring, and extremely thorough in making sure everything is completed as it should be. I highly recommend Cindy for anyone needing lawyer services; she truly goes above and beyond for every client she helps and has had a huge impact in so many peoples’ lives. Thank you, Cindy and staff, for everything that you do- I’m so glad to know you!

- Kerri

I heard Cindy’s presentation at a Senior Luncheon at my church, and was very impressed. She helped my daughter and me understand many aspects of elder law. Josh has also been very helpful in my planning to enter an independent living situation . I have told many friends about them.

- Charlotte

Cindy and the Nelson Elder Care Law team are trustworthy and helpful. They are the experts in elder care law. At Leaf Cremation, we entrust our families to the care of the Nelson team when their services are needed.
