“I'm thankful to Kathleen and Debbie P. for their invaluable help. Dealing with DHHS can be a daunting task, and it's better to have a team like “Elder Law” protect your interests as they have the knowledge and experience . . . I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again if the need should arise.”

“Mia, Debbie and Pat treated us as family from our first meeting. In today's rushed business world, taking a few minutes to connect at a human compassion and caring level is outstanding. Mia's patience, knowledge, professionalism, ease in translating ‘legal speak’ to English and more was wonderfully refreshing for us. We felt like we had known staff for years. Thank you!”

- Linda

“Kathleen Kienitz has been a tremendous help to me in dealing with so many issues that the elderly are faced with. Aside from Powers of Attorney, Wills, Estate and Life Planning, etc., I found her to be exceptionally knowledgeable in dealing with MaineCare. Her legal office is very professional with a courteous staff who are very much in tune with elderly legal issues.”

“I have been a client for 8 years. I have used them in trust, guardian, and estate matters. They are very good at communicating,  keeping me informed, and explaining or educating in the legal process. All legal matters have been handled expeditiously and satisfactorily.  I like dealing with a firm and legal staff that are familiar with me, my case, and concerns.”

“During our first appointment with Kathy, we knew we had found the expertise in elder law that we had been seeking, to help us protect our financial future and that of our family.  Through the years, we found Kathy and her staff to be  dedicated to providing meticulous and well researched documents, no matter what issue we were addressing.  Throughout the process, Kathy gave us the most current information to enable us to make an educated decision for our family.

I am so grateful that we were able to preserve our family's estates, while carrying out our wishes and those of my parents.  As my parents and husband passed, it gave me peace of mind knowing our legal affairs were handled by an expert.”

- Bonnie

“From the beginning, Kathleen has been a true advocate for my mother and for our family. Kathleen is extremely knowledgeable about Maine elder law; she expertly guided us through the stressful and complex process of obtaining MaineCare for Mom.

Kathleen is prompt and efficient and takes the time to explain complicated legal issues and answer questions. She (and her staff) are always friendly, compassionate, available—and reassuring. Frankly, we could not have gotten through this without her.”

- Lynda and Steve

“Our family has appreciated how efficient, caring and professional Kathleen Kienitz is to all her clients. We have recommended her to all our friends, relatives and acquaintances. We are very thankful for what she and her wonderful staff have accomplished for our family.”
