Being able to receive this VA benefit has been a life saver to me. It has helped me tremendously in being able to pay my bills. I can’t thank Rick and his staff enough in helping me get this much needed benefit.

We came in to see Rick Gibson because we did not know what else to do. We were really in a tough spot. Rick explained our options and even explained we were eligible for a VA pension benefit that no one had ever told us about. Because of that extra pension we would be able to move to a nice assisted living facility. Rick’s help was literally an answer to a prayer.

Rick Gibson first did our Wills and Powers of Attorney over ten years ago. Through the years we have had questions come up including the problems my mother had concerning Medicaid coverage for her nursing home care. Rick has always been able to keep us up to date and has always answered any questions we had and now became a great friend to our family.

Rick and his staff were so easy to talk to and so nice to deal with. They took all the time I needed to help me really understand my options.
