I actually discuss how to find a qualified elder law attorney with Medicaid experience in my book "How to Protect Your Family's Assets from Devastating Nursing Home Costs: Medicaid Secrets", but in a nutshell, you want to be sure that the elder law attorney actually does know about Medicaid planning. Not all elder law attorneys handle such cases, so be sure to ask. Also ask their fees over the phone, since they can vary all over the lot! Another tip is to check who teaches other attorneys Medicaid planning and law updates; call your local bar association and try to find that out. You can be confident such attorney seminar leaders are well qualified. Finally, check online at www.NAELA.org, where you can search for an attorney by zip code and even by specialty. Good luck!!

My advice to you is to ask the caseworker at a nursing care rehab facility. They have referrals to outside services in your community. My mom was in a rehab facility and due to be released when I got my referral. Our appointment is this week so I'll let you know how it goes. The most important thing is to do things well before you think you will need them. My husband and I have learned that the hard way.
